Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath – RoboCop Gameplay Reveal

NetherRealm details new guest fighter, available May 26 as part of upcoming expansion.

Hello, fellow fighters. We at NetherRealm are super excited to continue to fulfill everyone’s 80’s movie robot dreams with the addition of RoboCop in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath, our exciting, new expansion. We just dropped a new gameplay trailer showing off RoboCop, along with Fujin and Sheeva, who are all coming to Mortal Kombat 11 on May 26.

I clearly remember watching the “RoboCop” film when I was a kid, although I was probably far too young when I saw it. In fact, I was so in love with the movie that I asked for the RoboCop game on my Amiga 500 but only got to play it twice before the disk became corrupted. So, it’s great to finally get to play as RoboCop in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath.

ED-209 provides backup. 

I am far from being the only RoboCop fan in our studio. A few of the character artists on my team have ED-209 and RoboCop figurines on their desks. We even scanned one of these figurines to use as a reference for modeling out ED-209 which you’ll see in Mortal Kombat 11.

Being able to scan and record Peter Weller for the RoboCop model, as well as talk to him about the role, was invaluable. He gave me some great insight into what it was like playing the character, which allowed us to capture the essence of RoboCop. As a bonus, he gave me a crash course in Italian Renaissance art while he was in the studio being scanned. You may not know this but Dr. Weller has a Ph.D. in Italian Renaissance Art History and Roman History.

Mortal Kombat 3 Cyber Ninja RoboCop

With our guest fighters, we always ensure that we give the players as many iconic and authentic character attributes as possible. Pallets for RoboCop in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath are an excellent example of this. As RoboCop fans will remember, the original “RoboCop” film featured a gray suit, while the “RoboCop 2” outfit was much bluer. You will find both of these options in the Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath expansion. As is customary with our guest characters, RoboCop also gets a NetherRealm Studios version, this time it’s a Mortal Kombat 3 Cyber Ninja RoboCop variant.

RoboCop, just thinking about stopping a crime.

We had loads of fun working on RoboCop, packing in as many character references as possible. And we’re excited that our fans will get to play everyone’s 80’s cyborg fantasy, matching RoboCop against the Terminator. 

Don’t forget, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath will be available digitally first on May 26. And if you purchase early on PS4, you’ll get a free Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath dynamic theme showcasing Raiden and Liu Kang, which was custom made by the NetherRealm team and features music from the game.

  • its really cool how you guys are chargibg your biggest fans and supporters $140 for the sane content you are charging the peoplecwho didn’t support you at launch for $60. Message heard loud and clear NEVER BUY A NETHERREALM GAME UNTIL AT LEAST 1 YEAR AFTER LAUNCH.

  • フィニッシュやフェイタリブロウ
    を新キャラクター3体見ましたがどれも早く終わり面白い戦いでした。
    一番興奮したのはステージフェイタりティです。ヌーブサイボットが針のところに串刺しになってるところが痛々しいと感じました。今後は5月26日に来ると思いますでも日本時間だとずれてるので27日だとおもいます。続報を楽しみにしてます。

  • Fujin is looking badass,sheeva lame,dumb and cringe as always and robocop worst guest character ever…that Cyber Ninja skin is pretty cool though.

    • disagree your child hood must have sucked name another video game where you can fight the the terminator with RoboCop or the joker or spawn these are some of the best heroes & villains from are childhood the game is classic but I will never buy another one if they continue you to try to use us & make us repay dam near ah hundred dollars just to use certain fighters That’s *****
