Perhaps the most brutal fighter ever
Today we have a completely new Kombat Kast and Mortal Kombat 11 developers showed nothing but the ruling Emperor of Outworld, Kotal Kahn.
Kotal Kahn seems to be the best in the middle, as his long limbs give him a remarkable range. Although not too fast, he is certainly very heavy and seems to need fewer openings than most in the MK11 roster.
On paper, this character is very scary, as he has a large selection of tools that help him mostly on the offensive. He also has a counter-technique for opponents who are overzealous, but he seems to be in best shape from medium range and close up.
One thing is clear, this is one of the most brutal fighters we have. I've seen how many of his attacks make us feel even worse than normal (which really means something with MK11).
We start with Mr. Kahn's Fatality, in which he summons an ancient stone dead that he uses to kill his opponent As usual in Mortal Kombat 11, the victim is probably dead before the final punch, but it's really just to send this message to the player you are against:

In the very first turn the team showed, Kahn's abilities were used with his normal mid-range attacks. Its size means that long limbs are fairly far outstretched, and it can turn into great damage in a few simple steps:
He has some of his old features back, some with slight improvements. Here are Kots counter, sun ray healing and disc throwing:
Here are his sword specials, including a gnarly saw attack and a devastating ground-pound:
Depending on your customization, Kotal Kahn has access to four different totems. When he places them, he gets special improvements in terms of damage, stamina, health, and another quality that the team did not address. It can stack up to three totems simultaneously to mix and match for different effects:
Another custom variant of Steve gave Kahn the opportunity to turn into a jungle cat during jump attacks. He can simply hit, jump and chomp and even has a bouncing roll attack. Here we also see a sun reflector for anti-airs and combo ends:
In the last custom variation, we see Kotal's command stinging his enemy, knocking him over the head, drinking blood from the wound, and then shortly thereafter receiving a damage buff:
