The year of fighters, fans have been waiting for Mortal Kombat 1 with excitement, and that’s growing. The latest reason? Warner Bros. Games announced Reptile, Ashrah, and Havik as the latest playable fighters joining the Mortal Kombat 1 main roster. The next installment in the acclaimed videogame franchise developed by award-winning NetherRealm Studios, Mortal Kombat 1 will feature two rosters, the main roster and the Kameo roster, with both slowing being revealed.
The latest additions to the Mortal Kombat 1 main roster each hail from different realms, each of which is showcased in a new trailer entitled “The Banished.” This new trailer also offer a first look at gameplay and story elements. So who are the new additions to the Mortal Kombat 1 main roster?
Reptile, also known as Syzoth, is a reptiloid slave and shapeshifter from the fringes of Outworld with the ability to spew a powerful acid-like substance at opponents. Ashrah is a Netherrealm demon who has abandoned her evil-ridden ideologies and now fights with an enchanted Kriss dagger in her quest to find absolution. And Havik is an anarchist rebel from the oppressive realm of Seido, intent on taking down his world’s regime while leveraging a unique limb-tearing fighting style. But the main roster isn’t all you get to see in the trailer, you also get a glimpse at Sareena as a new Kameo Fighter who can assist during matches with a range of support moves.
Looking for lore? Press play on the trailer below to see why Reptile and Ashrah are outsiders among their people, their place on the “good” side of the tournament, and of course to get a look at fatalities, including the extremely gross one from Havik and Sareena’s devilish assist.
