    Mortal Kombat 11

    Weekly Pc Games Release Date Mortal Kombat 11

    • Release Date: April 23
    • Developer: NetherRealm Studios
    • Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment

    Mortal Kombat is back from the lawless lands of Outworld and the depths of the Netherrealm. While not necessarily the 11th game in the franchise, Mortal Kombat 11 does spice up the long-running lore… or, rather, it messes things up completely.

    When we last saw our kombatants, our heroes had just defeated Shinnok but that happy ending has to wait. Raiden, corrupted, has upset the balance of power leading the Elder God Kronika to step in to start her own machinations. Merging past, present, and alternate realities, heroes and villains fight once more to see who would achieve victory.

    Mortal Kombat 11 features Johnny Cage and family, the returning Baraka, Jade, and Shao Kahn, along with MKX notables such as Erron Black, D’vorah, and Kotal Kahn. The game will also introduce new fighters such as the deranged Kollektor and the otherworldly Geras. Naturally, you’ll have your story mode, versus fights, towers, and, obviously, some very gory fatalities.

    Imperator: Rome

    Weekly Pc Games Release Date Imperator Rome

    • Release Date: April 25
    • Developer: Paradox Interactive
    • Publisher: Paradox Interactive

    All roads lead to Rome this week with the release of Imperator: Rome, the newest grand strategy IP from Paradox Interactive. Although a successor to Europa Universalis: Rome — itself a spinoff of Europa Universalis IIIImperator: Rome adds new and old mechanics, many from other Paradox games, to create a completely different experience.

    The game’s start date will place you at a time period when Rome was just a fledgling power in the Italian countryside, beset on all sides by rival city-states and tribes. If you don’t plan on marching with the legions, you can choose mighty Carthage just across the Mediterranean, or the Germanic and Celtic tribes to the north. Likewise, you can opt to pick Macedon, the Seleucids, or any of the Hellenistic kingdoms left behind by Alexander. You can even head further east to play as Zhangzhung situated on Tibetan highlands, or the unstoppable Mauryan Empire.

    Heck, who are we kidding? You can play as any nation made available at the game’s start from Ireland to India.

    Along the way, you’ll need to manage your armies, your economy, and trade, as well as your populace. You might even have to rein in some unruly characters who seek to disrupt your rule.

    Other Games This Week

    Weekly Pc Games Release Date Dark Devotion

    Dark Devotion (April 25) – From Hibernian Workshop, Dark Devotion is a 2D side-scroller reminiscent of classics such as Castlevania and Metroid. You’ll be able to pick up items and relics to aid you in your quest as you delve deeper in four different worlds. Beware, though, because you can only keep moving forward. You won’t be able to backtrack to previous areas.

    Next Week

    April’s showers bring May’s flowers… or games, rather. Mordhau will have medieval multiplayer mayhem, whereas Fade to Silence focuses on survival. Meanwhile, psychological thriller Close to the Sun gets closer to release date, and Rise of Industry gets you close to your dream job of being a tycoon. We’ll see you then.
