Another Kombat Kast has passed and with it came the announcement of an upcoming new mode slated for release soon for Mortal Kombat 11. Team Raids, according to NetherRealm, will be a new addition to the online fighting game meant to add challenge while inspiring camaraderie.
How it is set up, the Team Raids will pit three players against a single boss in separate fights with each player able to take on different challenges in order to aid each other in their progress. This will also mean that players will need to be smart with their items equipped, especially since these bosses will be receiving special buffs to make them all the more challenging. Like all raids, teamwork makes the dreamwork so don't try to be the lone wolf guy thinking he can take the win by himself.
The choice to make a team-based mode like a Raid a separated event is an interesting choice for sure, but given that the fighting game isn't the most tailored to a traditional raid it makes sense that NetherRealm would want to put their own unique spin on the experience.
Unfortunately, we don't have a release date at this time or if it would have any platform exclusivity, though another Kombat Kast is slated here soon that may touch on more details alongside more on the T-800 Terminator edition in terms of DLC character add-ons.
As for the game itself, Mortal Kombat 11 is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch. You can learn even more about our thoughts on the fighter with a small blurb below from our full review:
"Mortal Kombat 11 has everything you could possibly want in a new MK title except for maybe a Shaolin Monks-style mini-game. There’s plenty of single player content to enjoy, great online multiplayer with some of the nest netcode we’ve seen in modern fighting games, a large and varied character roster, and the best graphics in a fighting game this console generational. It will be very difficult for NetherRealm to top what they have here."
