The last chapter of Mortal Kombat 11 by NetherRealm Studios, is considered the greatest fighting game ever by both critics and gamers. It showed unprecedented visual quality and patient attention to detail. MK11 smashed the 10-year-old record and became the best-selling game on 4 major platforms simultaneously. It’s also the most successful entry in the series. Today it’s about to become the best-selling game of 2019 or at least one of the top three.
Wilbert Roget, II is famous with soundtracks for Lara Croft and The Temple of Osiris, Star Wars The Force Unleashed, Call of Duty: WWII, and other excellent video games. His work with the MK11 music team resulted with 36 original tracks that perfectly emphasize the atmosphere of the cinematic bone-crushing fighting arcade. The stage music was performed by Rich Carle, Dan Forden, Nathan Grigg, Armin Haas, and Matthias Wolf. Roget commented this work on his website saying, “The MK franchise has been a huge part of my life ever since I was 10, introducing me to arcade games, game music, and the martial arts, and greatly influencing my composition style.
The composer mixed epic modern orchestral music with warm vibes of ethnic instruments to match it with particular characters and scenarios. At the end of the 3rd quarter, you’ll be surprised to hear a unique combination of cutting-edge breakcore, dubstep, hip-hop, and nu-metal. Roget managed to compose an outstanding tape that has the right epic scale for a revolutionary fighting title. It’s an encore performance that closes the 25-year-long journey of the series and opens up the new epoch of video game development.
You can find this soundtrack on numerous streaming platforms and marketplaces, including Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, iTunes Store, Tidal, Amazon, Google Play, and Napster. If you want to enjoy the sound together with gameplay, you will need a powerful PC, Xbox One, PS4, or Nintendo Switch. You may download it just in time to get other greatly anticipated goodies from the Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack. It includes an extended character roaster with 6 new fighters. The most recent roaster trailer, released on August 21, confirmed Sindel, Spawn, Shang Tsung, and Nightwolf and surprised fans with Terminator T-800 and Joker from DC Comics.
