'Mortal Kombat 11' Update 1.28 Adds More Character Adjustments - Patch Notes

As Mortal Kombat 11 enters its third year since release, NetherRealm Studios has put out the latest update full of general and fighter-specific adjustments.

Version 1.28 was released on January 26 for PlayStation and Xbox — PC, Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia will release at a later date — and fans of Kotal Kahn will want to take notice of the changes. Mileena and Rambo also saw significant updates.

While the patch notes for this latest update don't seem robust, it's not surprising considering the next Pro Kompetition qualifier will be arriving soon.

Here are the complete changes in Mortal Kombat 11 version 1.28.
