A new trailer for Mortal Kombat 1 introduces the character of Geras, who will be available in the fighting game roster from launch. Warner Bros and NetherRealm thus introduce another fighter, approaching its September 19 debut.

This trailer focuses on two characters: on the one hand Liu Kang, who was the protagonist of the very first Mortal Kombat, before being assassinated. On the other hand, it is Geras, guardian of time and protector of the Hourglass, the artifact that regulates the flow of time.

The trailer, entitled “Keepers of Time”, also shows us Geras in his new version designed for the graphic style of this semi-reboot of the series. The character is well recognizable, even if his model and his clothing have some variations.

In the trailer, cutscenes and actual gameplay scenes follow one another, created with the Mortal Kombat 1 engine. The dialogue with Liu Kang about the reconstruction of a timeline to eliminate some characters also introduces some plot elements.

The video shows Lui Kang’s “old friend” in action with his fists and hints at an ominous outcome for the Fire God’s new world order. As Lui Kang himself explains, “Geras is the guardian of the hourglass, a celestial object which lies beyond the realms. The hourglass regulates time and destiny.”

“I have watched you with the hourglass,” Geras tells Lui Kang. “You are relishing your role as Earthrealm’s protector. When you restarted history, you altered the destinies of certain malefactors to neutralize them. Your vision of peace may already be compromised.”

Mortal Kombat 1 will be released on September 19 on PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch. At San Diego Comic-Con, the team revealed the Kombat Pack roster, which will include Peacemaker and Homelander, among others. Check out the trailer below.
