Get ready to return to the brutal world of Mortal Kombat 1, as NetherRealm Studios announced a major expansion during the recent CCXP23 convention in Brazil. This expansion, similar in scope to the MK11 Aftermath DLC, will offer players exciting new story content and more, but that's not all.

Series creator Ed Boon teased a "big surprise" coming after the expansion's release, leaving fans eager to speculate about what NetherRealm has in store. During the panel discussion, Boon shared details about the expansion, saying, "Just like we did with MK11, we're going to release a second part with more story and we have a big surprise after that." This announcement is reminiscent of the successful MK11 expansion Aftermath, which brought a continuation of the story, new playable characters, character skins and more.

Fans can expect the MK1 expansion to follow a similar format, potentially offering: New Story Content: Dive deeper into the events of Mortal Kombat 1 and explore the untold chapters of this iconic tournament. Additional Playable Characters: Expand your roster with new characters, bringing new fighting styles and strategies to the battlefield.

New Stages and Modes: Experience the brutality of Mortal Kombat in fresh environments and challenge yourself in innovative gameplay modes. While the exact details of the expansion remain shrouded in mystery, the "big surprise" mentioned by Boon has generated a lot of excitement in the community.

Some speculate that a brand new Mortal Kombat game could be on the horizon, while others expect even more content for the current title. With the release date of the MK1 expansion yet to be confirmed, fans can only wait and speculate.

Regardless, the promise of more Mortal Kombat content is sure to excite gamers eager to continue their blood-soaked journey in this legendary fighting game series. The game itself is a classic and very popular around the world along with Tekken, perhaps the biggest fighting game title.

Be on the lookout for additional details and announcements from NetherRealm Studios as excitement for the MK1 expansion continues to build.
