Mortal Kombat 1: Geras Returns with Sand, Time, and Friendship

A new Mortal Kombat 1 trailer has dropped, and boy, does it have some exciting news for the fans! Geras, the sand-slinging powerhouse, is making a comeback as a playable character in this latest installment. If you thought you’d seen the last of him after Mortal Kombat 11, well, think again!

But before we dive into the details, let’s talk about the storyline. Mortal Kombat 1 follows the events of the Aftermath expansion of Mortal Kombat 11, where Liu Kang defeats the infamous Shang Tsung. In a mind-bending twist, Liu Kang gains the power to shape a New Era, where warriors have new roles to play. And, my oh my, that means some serious changes await us in Mortal Kombat 1!

Now, let’s get back to the trailer. NetherRealm Studios surprised us all by revealing that Geras is now the guardian of the Hourglass Liu Kang used to vanquish Shang Tsung. That’s right, the former antagonist has become the protector of time itself! And if that’s not surprising enough, the trailer hints at a friendly relationship between Geras and Liu Kang, although they keep us in suspense about the details.

If you’re wondering what Geras brings to the table in terms of gameplay, well, you’re in for a treat. The trailer showcases his new desGameTopic and gives us a glimpse of his moves. As the master of the sands of time, Geras wields them with devastating effect against his opponents. Alongside his trusty Hourglass and extended time-stop powers, he’ll make sure his adversaries feel the full force of his might.

In true Mortal Kombat fashion, the trailer also treats us to a couple of gruesome Fatalities. Brace yourself for the sight of Geras grinding Baraka into the sandstorm, and prepare for Sub-Zero’s journey into the great beyond with Liu Kang as his guide. These Fatalities are just a taste of what’s to come in Mortal Kombat 1 when it releases on September 19 for Nintendo Switch, PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.

But wait, there’s more! In addition to Geras’ return, NetherRealm Studios has been showering us with exciting news. They recently announced the voice actor for Omni-Man, one of the guest characters being added through the Kombat Pack. And for those who can’t wait to immerse themselves in the game, a Mortal Kombat 1 beta is confirmed for August. Get ready to experience more of the base roster, engage in 1v1 battles, and conquer the ever-challenging Klassic Towers in single-player mode.

The Mortal Kombat 1 hype train is full steam ahead, folks! So mark your calendars for September 19, gather your friends, and get ready to unleash epic battles in the new era of Mortal Kombat.
