NetherRealm Studios has revealed their plans for the competitive league of Mortal Kombat 11 play, and it will be built around a new ranked game mode, Kombat League. the MK11 Kombat League is a four-week-long, seasonal ranked mode that will pit online combatants against each other in best two out of three sets. Each win grants points, which then confer a certain rank based on the number of points won.
The play structure for this mode will be organized into multiple seasons, with the first one beginning on June 18th and being titled Season of Blood. The theme for Season of Blood is, you guessed it, spilling blood.
Each league season is tied to a unique theme and set of rewards. Rewards are locked behind different tiers or ranks, with players earning rewards as they rank up. Another way to unlock rewards is to complete different in-game challenges.
Each season has their own set of challenges, with some rotating with each season, while NetherRealm also plans to introduce daily challenges as a secondary series of hurdles to overcome, each offering their own minor rewards. For example, players who spill a certain amount of in-game blood during matches can earn different rewards.
As part of the reveal, the developer also released a trailer that goes over the details in short order. Check out said trailer down below.
Players who compete in the competitive ladder for Mortal Kombat 11 can earn a variety of rewards. Ranks exist from the rather lowly title of Apprentice, all the way to the extremely prestigious title of Elder God. Each rank has their own requirements, and of course, cool rewards. Players will most often earn unique cosmetics that are tied to each Kombat League season.
Mortal Kombat 11 is out now for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One, with a Google Stadia version also in development.
