Following the trend of most fighting games released recently, NetherRealm Studios’ “Mortal Kombat 11” has a tutorial mode that fully briefs players on how to play well in-game. From simple movement to the advanced defensive maneuvers, players can learn the right skills they need to go competitive in this game. Here’s what we know about “Mortal Kombat 11’s” Tutorial mode

As seen inside the game’s “Learn” menus, the tutorial mode of “Mortal Kombat 11” is a robust one that covers the basics and advanced systems that the game has to offer. Players would find every offensive tactic and defensive move taught by the tutorial mode to them. Application and awareness of “Mortal Kombat 11’s” features are crucial to playing well and fairing well in competitive settings.

Unlike other fighting game tutorials, “Mortal Kombat 11” walks players through a rundown on frame data in the tutorial and does it well. Knowing how frame data works provides players the information to know the openings in their opponent’s attacks and effectively “steal” the opponent’s turn in attacking. On the other hand, players will also know when their moves are “unsafe” where opponents can attack or interrupt to stop their advance.

More than looking at important frame data for understanding offense, “Mortal Kombat 11” also provides a rundown of defensive moves on getting up and while blocking attacks to stop a foe from their relentless offense. These options come in form of a defensive launcher that can help players land a damaging punish on their enemies, and an invulnerable attack that will stop any attack in its track.

While “Mortal Kombat 11” teaches all the fundamentals needed to go professional in this game, the players needs to apply these lessons in battle and learn some experience on their own. Since the game has just been released, players can go online to test their might and apply what they’ve learned. If not against other human players, the tutorial lessons would serve the players well on their quest to finish the game’s story mode or clearing out the Towers of Time for additional cosmetic content.
