When Mortal Kombat 12 Could Take Place On The MK Timeline

Published

Mortal Kombat 12

New characters and a new setting can all be found within Mortal Kombat’s canon story lines. Will the game writers take a trip back in time?

The Mortal Kombat universe has a storied history, but parts of it have yet to be touched upon by the games. Perhaps with Mortal Kombat 12 it’s time to take the Mortal Kombat series back to its roots and discover where some of the mythology surrounding its oldest characters comes from. Mortal Kombat 12 could be a chance for the franchise to shake things up with some new plot developments and new characters.

Mortal Kombat storylines have always been convoluted but consistent, sticking to the canon story originally introduced in the first Mortal Kombat title. Seven different warriors enrolled in a deadly tournament with the freedom of their realm on the line. Liu Kang won the first tournament.

Since then, the story progressed linearly, seeing numerous tournaments and various winners. The ninth game in the franchise, Mortal Kombat (2011) allowed players to replay through the timeline again with various differences that have not been brought to light in the main story line. By the end of Mortal Kombat 11 and its subsequent story-based DLC offering Aftermath, it’s clear the Mortal Kombat franchise is looking to try something new.

Mortal Kombat 12 Likely Takes Place 500 Years Before MK1

At the end of Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath, the slate has been wiped clean. Players get to decide whether the timeline resets again to the days of The Great Kung Lao, or if Shang Tsung is in control of all the realms. It is unlikely that future story lines will be set in an evil, Shang Tsung-controlled setting, as that gives little chance for creative freedom with characters and more of a chance of history repeating itself yet again.

The new Mortal Kombat game should be in The Great Kung Lao’s time period, 500 years ago, as God of Fire and Lightning Liu Kang teaches him to be a warrior. This gives an opportunity for fans to see some of the oldest, non-human Mortal Kombat characters like Quan Chi, Shang Tsung, Sindel, Kitana, Shao Khan, and Goro in their younger years. It’s also a chance for players to play as the mythical god-like figures of The Great Kung Lao and Fire God Liu Kang.

Mortal Kombat 12 could also be the start of a new story for new characters. Many of the familiar combatants like Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Sonya Blade and Jax haven’t been born yet. This opens up a door for new, unheard of characters to enter the canon. Mortal Kombat‘s stories have been consistent, but they don’t have to be boring. Allowing players to go five hundred years into the past, before any of the previous tournaments even happened, could freshen up the old tropes and bring new fans to the game.

Bigg Boss 14 Promo: Arshi Khan Tears Up As Eijaz Khan Is Asked to Leave the Show Suddenly, Devoleena Bhattacharjee Enters the House As His Proxy




Bigg Boss 14 gets interesting day by day because of the new plots and twists that the makers add to the reality show. Speculations around one of the favourite house members, Eijaz Khan, leaving the BB house midway were making rounds for some time and now the makers confirmed the news by sharing a quick promo today. The promo showed Bigg Boss asking the actor to leave the house. A glimpse of Devoleena Bhattacharjee entering the house is also shown in the promo. Bigg Boss 14: Eijaz Khan Reveals He Has A Crush On Tabu, Wants To Marry Her.



The promo video shows Eijaz is seen standing alone in a dark room as the other housemates are gathered in the living area. Bigg Boss announces, “Eijaz Khan is ghar me aane wale pehle insaan bane is season me, aur 106 din bitae yaha. Lekin ab ye show yahi pe chor ke jana pad raha hai (Eijaz Khan became the first person to enter the house this season and has spent 106 days here. But he needs to leave the show mid-way).” Hearing this, all the housemates go into a shock mode. Arshi feels the most dejected as she starts crying for him.




It is being said that Eijaz had signed a film project before he had entered the BB house. The schedule was shifted due to the lockdown but now since the film is back on track, the producers did not want to wait for Eijaz’s exit from the reality show to kickstart the shoot. The makers hence had to decide to send Eijaz and complete his prior commitments. It is being said that Devoleena Bhattacharjee will be entering the BB house as his proxy. Earlier, Eijaz ladylove Pavitra Punia was asked to fill in as his proxy but because the actress had begun her shoot for her show, she had to refuse the offer. Eijaz Khan In Bigg Boss 14: Career, Love Story, Controversies – Check Profile of BB14 Contestant on Salman Khan’s Reality TV Show.



Another promo showed several men entering the house and taking away all the ration from the house. Bigg Boss announces, “Aaj se sara ration, Bigg Boss apne kabze me kar rahe hain (Bigg Boss will keep all the ration in his custody now).” The men take away food items that contestants had hidden away in their bed closets, suitcases, bags in the luggage room. This step comes as a punishment for the contestants for not taking the tasks seriously. Rubina Dalaik even goes on to blame Eijaz for this punishment.
