Mortal Kombat 11 announced that its global esports program is making a comeback with Pro Kompetition: Season 2. The new season is starting on December 5. It’s also fully online with all matches exclusively played on PlayStation 4.

The tournament's prize pool is $60,000. Kombatants of all ranks can take part in three different regional divisions. These are:

  • North American League
    • North America East
    • North America West
  • InterKontinental Kombat
    • Europe
    • Middle East
    • Oceania
  • Liga Latina
    • Brazil
    • Mexico
    • Latin America Norte
    • Latin America Sur

Players participating will earn Pro Kompetition points. These are for qualifying to each regional final, which produces one winner per division. That means each winner gets a large share of the $20,000 pie.

So, are you interested yet? For starters, check if you meet the requirements:

  • Must own or have access to Mortal Kombat 11 on PS4.
  • Must own or have access to an active PlayStation Plus subscription.
  • Must have a valid PlayStation Network account with an associated PSN ID.
  • Must be at least 18 years old.

The tournament is open not only for series veterans but even those new to Outworld. The competition follows a double-elimination and best-of-5 format. This should give less experienced players a chance to learn and a shot at victory.

Mortal Kombat 11 was released last year on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia. This latest addition to the franchise sees the return of, among others, fatalities and Brutalities. There are also new gameplay features like Fatal Blows and Krushing Blows.

In the game, Dark Raiden makes an example of Earthrealm’s enemies by decapitating Shinnok after his defeat. But this leads to Shinnok’s mother Kronika, also the keeper of time, to rewrite history to erase whatever Raiden has done.

Mortal Kombat 11 has received favorable reviews since. Many cited the gameplay, story, graphics, and even improved netcode. The game, however, did gain some criticism on microtransactions and over-reliance on grinding.

If you're a long-time fan of the game and haven't made a decision to buy it, now would be a good time. We say this because Mortal Kombat 11 recently released the Klassic MK Movie Skin Pack. Read more about that here .
