Another reveal of the Mortal Kombat 11 live stream night of revelations is a surprise new character (well, unless you managed to see the anonymous email leaks beforehand) called Geras and he’s bringing with him the sands of time to help him in the fight against Dark Raiden and any other combatants who may oppose him.
From the trailer we can see him having the ability to manipulate time as well as the ability to control sand, turning it into much denser objects and weapons which he uses to crush his victims. He then manipulates time backward to continue his flurry of blunt force, making his opponent feel the pain again and again and again and… I’ll stop now.
What could his purpose be in the story? We already know that there is a mysterious woman with the ability to manipulate time, so maybe these two characters have a connection to each other? An intriguing prospect of a time-traveling team-up between these two characters could prove to be the undoing of Dark Raiden, either way, we’ll have to wait and see!
Watch the official reveal trailer for Geras below:
I really like the design of this character, it reminds me of a more Egyptian “sand of time” theme, the gold armor and luminous blue eyes add a nice touch too. A unique power amongst the Mortal Kombat combatants makes for an interesting mix-up and a thumbs up for originality with a new character in their universe.
Mortal Kombat 11 will release on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch & PC on April 23, 2019.
