As for a brief game intro, in case you’ve missed out, the official description reads:
In Mortal Kombat 11, the story continues as Raiden’s defeat of the evil Elder God, Shinnok, has drawn the ire of Kronika, the Keeper of Time, and upset her desired balance between good and evil. To restore stability in the realms, Kronika has only one option – rewind time to its beginning and restart history. Through the immersive story mode, players take on the role of various fighters from past and present Mortal Kombat eras, who must join forces to defeat Shao Khan’s Outworld armies and solve the temporal crisis at stake.
Mortal Kombat 11 features a robust roster of new and returning fighters with unique abilities and Fatalities. UFC champion, Olympic medalist and WWE superstar, Ronda Rousey, takes on the role of Sonya Blade, alongside multiple fan-favorite characters, including Scorpion, Raiden, Sub-Zero, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Johnny Cage, Cassie Cage, Jax Briggs, Jacqui Briggs, Kitana, Skarlet, Baraka, Kano, D’Vorah, Kabal, Jade, Erron Black, Kotal Kahn, Noob Saibot, Frost and Shao Kahn. They are joined by a variety of franchise-first fighters such as Geras; a powerful servant of Kronika who can manipulate time; Cetrion, the Elder Goddess of Virtue and Guardian of Life; and The Kollector, a corrupt enforcer and loyal associate of Shao Kahn.
