The latest upcoming game, Mortal Kombat 11 is just under a week away from being released to the world. The hugely popular fighter game gains popularity with every release, with MK11 setting to raise the bar even further. NetherRealm Studio is ready to branch out to the world with the game’s first global tournament dubbed Mortal Kombat 11 Pro Kompetition.

Some details have emerged regarding the structure of the Pro Kompetition which will see up to nine separate live events across Europe, North and South America, with the first round of qualifiers to take place between 24th May 2019 and 26th May 2019 in Chicago.

To gain entry into the Pro Kompetition, similar to other games, players must participate in a number of online tournaments where they will be ranked. Top performers will earn their place in the qualifying rounds of the tournament to see if they have what it takes to become the most skilled fighter in the world and become the first champion of Mortal Kombat.

Mortal Kombat 11 will officially be released on 23rd April and will be available on PC, Switch, PS4 and Xbox One.
