The Music vs. The Muscle Mortal Kombat 11 Schedule

The matches are both scheduled for August 22. The first match is set for 10:30 a.m. EST, at the Google Stadia consumer booth, located in Hall 9 of the Koelnmesse. Mortal Kombat 11 on Stadia is also going to be playable for the first time at the Stadia booth during show hours.

Immediately after, the second Vegas versus Björnsson matchup is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. EST, at the Xbox Open Doors booth within the Gloria Theatre. Fans can watch Vegas play Mortal Kombat 11 against Björnsson at the venue or view the matchup on Mixer and the NetherRealm Twitch channel, where the game is going to be livestreamed.

New Skin & DLC

The new trailer for Vegas’s upcoming Sub-Zero character skin is also scheduled to be revealed during this livestream. Beginning on August 22, the skin is going to be available for all Mortal Kombat 11 owners for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.

Sub-Zero is the grandmaster of the Lin Kuei clan. Kuai Liang beat death to redeem his clan for the evil committed by Sektor and the Cyber Lin Kuei. He rebuilt the Lin Kuei and brokered peace with their Shirai Ryu rivals. Now, he hopes to finally close the book on sins of Lin Kuei past.

The latest Mortal Kombat 11 downloadable content (DLC) character, Nightwolf, is also going to be playable at Xbox Open Doors from August 21 through August 23, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. EST. Nightwolf has already been available in Early Access since August 13.

Nightwolf, born as Grey Cloud, is a proud and fierce warrior dedicated to the cause of good and chosen by the Great Spirit to become the Matoka tribe’s champion and protector.

The best way to upgrade the Mortal Kombat 11 game experience is to pick up the Kombat Pack, which includes six characters—Shang Tsung (available now), Nightwolf (available now via early access), Sindel, Spawn, and two fighters to be announced at a later date. It also includes numerous skin and gear sets and one-week early access for all content.

The Kombat Pack can be purchased as part of the Mortal Kombat 11 Premium Edition. All DLC characters and bonus character skin packs become available for individual purchase after the one-week early access period.

Mortal Kombat 11 is available now for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
