Mortal Kombat 11 fans have been waiting with bated breath for an official look at the next DLC character Sindel, and now that gameplay trailer has finally dropped. Going into this, long-time fans of the franchise may have a ton of questions such as how Sindel's retcon will come into play, what is the ghost that she has been teased with, and will her playstyle have changed much since past games? Not every single one of these is answered, but the gameplay trailer does a lot to build hype for her release nevertheless.
The trailer, as seen below, begins with Sindel and Nightwolf rehashing their history, focusing on how Nightwolf's sacrifice saved his clan and Earthrealm from Sindel's attack. It then continues to show Sindel's gameplay in a fight versus the Matoka warrior, a fitting intro for the character into Mortal Kombat 11. After this, it goes through several fights, highlighting everything from her hair whip attacks to her screams.
It seems that Sindel has a ghost, but it doesn't seem likely the full extent of it wasn't shown, nor was any explanation offered. Based on the gameplay, it seems as if this ghost mechanic can empower her banshee-like attacks, more or less supporting the theory that the being was an actual Banshee. If it does anything else in Mortal Kombat 11, that remains to be seen.
Players also get a look at one of her fatalities near the end, where she picks up her target with her hair and lets loose a scream so powerful that it flays the skin of her target before a final burst blows them apart. The final reveal in the trailer is the characters who are getting new skins in the Gothic Horrors Skin Pack, namely Raiden, Geras, and Cetrion, as well as the Klassic Cassie Cage skin.
MK11's Kombat Pack 1 owners will get access to Sindel, the Gothic Horrors Pack, and Klassic Cassie Cage on November 26, meaning players only have 12 days before they can first check out the Dark Empress hands-on.
Mortal Kombat 11 is out now for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One, with a Stadia version also in development.
