Watch 17 Minutes of Mortal Kombat 1’s Campaign

NetherRealm Studios has just taken a huge step with Mortal Kombat 1 resetting the timeline, and everyone is excited to see just how the characters had been mixed up for a new story with Liu Kang as an Elder God.

Now thanks to IGN, we have a look at the first 17 minutes of the campaign which not only gives us a look at the gameplay, but as well as the story and where some characters are in Liu Kang’s new reality. Watch this:

It’s still unclear who the villain of the franchise is going to be, but the story does open with the fate of Shang Tsung in this alternate timeline. It looks like he’s been subjected to a life of conning poor Outworlders, but it does seem that the villain from the last game, Kronika, is going to help him re-achieve his full potential.

Besides Shang Tsung, we also get a look at the early parts of Kung Lao’s campaign. It does look like Raiden has now taken the part of Liu Kang as his best friend, and they find themselves clashing with the Lin Kuei. Not only do we get to see the character Smoke, but we also get an appearance from Sub-Zero and Scorpion who are now allies. We don’t exactly know how that happens, but it does seem that the Lin Kuei are a bunch of gangster thugs in this timeline as well.

For only 17 minutes, we actually get a good idea of what to expect with the story, and I’m sure that it’s going to be a fun ride, not only for pro MK players but for anyone following the game’s narrative as well.

Watch out for Mortal Kombat 1 when it launches on PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X|S, and PS5 on Sept. 19.
