I can hang out with Sindel now
While I doubt many of us would leap at the opportunity to step into the ring with Sub-Zero, Shao Kahn or, God forbid, Erron Black in real life, a new, fan-created mod for Mortal Kombat 11 offers the opportunity to get closer to the action than ever before, implementing a weird first-person camera.
The MK11Hook – created by modder Ermaccer – lets you essentially step into the skull of your favorite fighter, mere minutes before it is separated from their shoulders. A video of the mod in action (which you can check out below) sees poster boy Scorpion going nose-to-nose with Noob Saibot, while an alternate third-person camera sees Spawn tackle Shokan queen Sheeva. The camera-offset options also offer interesting new perspectives on some of MK 11‘s stages.
Ok, let’s face it, nobody is gonna be rocking these views for their MK 11 fix (he says right before someone probably wins EVO 2021 in first-person), but the MK11Hook mod also has other features, such as the option to alter gameplay speed. It goes without saying that modding MK 11 could land you in hot water online, possibly resulting in a ban, so I should do my finger-wagging bit here.
Still, it’s the closest you’d probably ever want to get to actually visiting the NetherRealm.
