Fan-favourite femme fatale, Jade, is the latest playable character to be confirmed by NetherRealm Studios.
Jade fights with a brutal mix of speed and dexterity, utilising her iconic bo staff and razorrang to deadly effect as she squares off against Sonya Blade (voiced by WWE’s Ronda Rousey), Skarlet and Baraka.
Mortal Kombat 11 releases 23 April on Xbox One, PS4, Switch and PC.

The latest Nintendo Direct was packed with reveals and announcements for some of Ninty's biggest franchises. Here's what we'll be playing this year.
Fire Emblem: Three Houses has been delayed until summer but we now have a solid release date. The famed RPG series will make its Switch debut on 26 July.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is bringing the franchise back to Nintendo after a ten year break. Players can assemble a team from the rosters of Guardians of the Galaxy, The Avengers, The Defenders and more as they take on Thanos and The Black Order.
Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition promises the most elaborate story (and title) yet, with all previously released DLC included amongst new features.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is getting an update with version 3.0 this spring. Challenge Pack 1, featuring Persona protagonist, Joker, will be available before April.
There's also some new Amiibo figures being released.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, a 2D side scroller and spiritual successor to Castlevania, can be expected sometime this summer.
Another title scheduled for a summer release is ARPG, Oninaki. As a Watcher, players will have the ability to travel between the Living World and the Beyond, severing the bonds that link the Lost to this world and sending them to the next.

Respawn Entertainment’s free-to-play Battle Royale title, Apex Legends, has reached 10 million players in just three days.
“We knew it would be risky to take the franchise in this direction, to go free to play, and do a surprise launch. But we fell in love with Apex Legends and wanted, needed, other people to play it too,” he continued.
“From all of us at Respawn, thank you for giving us and Apex Legends a chance. Thank you for joining us on this journey. This is just the beginning! We have so much more in store for you this year.”

The second part of EA's gameplay series delves into the end-game content that's available once the campaign is wrapped up.
Upon reaching Pilot Level 30 and completing the main story, new difficulties will be unlocked alongside the standard Easy, Normal and Hard Modes. The three tiers of Grand Master provide more of a challenge and offer greater rewards for successful pilots.
Factions around Fort Tarsis will offer Contracts and those who prove themselves worthy could be tasked with taking on Legendary Contracts; multi part missions with bigger risks and better loot. Crafting blueprints, and the resources needed to build them, can be acquired from these factions as your reputation grows. Daily, weekly and monthly challenges can also be completed to earn coins and valuable materials.
Strongholds, one of which we got to sample during the demo, will be one of the more challenging activities, along with Cataclysms. Cataclysms are big events causing physical changes to the world such as "extreme weather, deluges of hostile creatures, and changes to the landscape that will reveal new mysteries to solve."
More characters, missions and stories are promised post-launch.
Anthem releases 22 February on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Early Access starts 15 February for EA Access/Origins members.
