10:16 pm, April 2, 2019
Mortal Kombat 11 is only a few weeks away, and developer NetherRealm continues to reveal new characters in the lead up to the game's launch. Last week, the company gave fans their first look at three returning fighters--Liu Kang, Kung Lao, and Jax--during Sony's inaugural State of Play presentation, and now it's unveiled a brand-new character named Cetrion. As we see in her reveal trailer (via Game Informer), Cetrion is an Elder God connected to the Earth, and she's able to utilize her elemental powers in battle; the trailer showcases her summoning vines from the ground to restrain opponents and conjuring up rocks to pummel foes with.

The video ends with a look at one of Cetrion's Fatalities, which sees her growing to god size and raining down a beam of energy onto a hapless Jade.

Cetrion is the second entirely new playable character announced for Mortal Kombat 11 thus far, following Geras, the loyal servant of MK 11 boss Kronika. Much like Cetrion, Geras also has some elemental powers; he's able to conjure up objects made of sand--such as a bed of spikes that he can slam his foes onto--and even manipulate time. You can see the full list of all the confirmed fighters so far here.

In addition to the base roster, NetherRealm will release an assortment of DLC characters for MK 11. The developer hasn't yet announced how many there will be, but we did get our look at the first one during C2E2 last month: Shang Tsung. This time, Tsung's likeness is based on Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, the actor who portrayed the character in the 1995 Mortal Kombat movie. Players who pre-order the game will also receive Shao Kahn as a bonus character.

Mortal Kombat 11 launches for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch on April 23. We recently had an opportunity to go hands-on with the Switch version at PAX East 2019, and while it was a noticeable visual downgrade, we found the game ran and played perfectly fine on Nintendo's console. You can read more about the title in our Mortal Kombat 11 pre-order guide.
