“Mortal Kombat 11” has now been deemed as the highest-selling title last month, based on data collected by market analyst NPD Group between April 7 and May 4. Along with Fortnite, the violent fighting game pushed digital game sales to $8.86 billion in April, a seven percent increase to the figures seen this time last year, VB reported.

With “Mortal Kombat 11” expected to churn out more content in the years to come, its number is only going to grow from here on out. At the moment, the title is set to release its first DLC content for the game that will bring in new blood within its fold.

Unfortunately, there’s still no confirmation from Nether Realms when this would be although rumors would have it that could come out on July. Shang Tsung has already been confirmed as the first DLC character for “Mortal Kombat 11,” while the rest of the additions remain a mystery for now.

However, there have been speculations who will be included in this update. It’s already been established that “Mortal Kombat 11” will be adding six more characters in the game. Within the franchise’s universe, Nightwolf, Sindel, and Fujin are being rumored to be included in the upcoming DLC.

Outside of the title’s lore, Joker from DC, Terminator from the “Terminator” franchise and Spawn of Image Comics are those touted to join in the fray. Gamers have been having a blast playing “Mortal Kombat 11” due to its fluid gameplay, tactics-like approach, and meter management.

The last one is arguably the most intriguing as it’s been split in two: defensive and offensive categories. The former allows players to get out of sticky situations and halt combos, a mechanic called Breakaway. The latter, on the other hand, amplifies the damage of certain moves and open up combo opportunities. There’s also the fact that “Mortal Kombat 11” provide players with a Fatal Blow, a devastating attack that can only be used once per match, IGN reported.

This move often requires players to pay attention to their enemies’ fighting pattern given that it’s extremely difficult to defend against. As such, most players treat Fatal Blows as either a finisher or a maneuver that can turn the tables around. It’s for this mechanic that provide tense moments for every fight, especially if both players save the move for last. “Mortal Kombat 11” taking the world by storm is indeed well-deserved, although there have been dark issues that have been looming over the title since its released.
