The Mortal Kombat series -- including Mortal Kombat 11 -- has and will always be a 2D fighter, meaning played on a 2D plane. But what if it was a first-person, or even a third-person game? Well, that will never happen. There's no reason for NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to so drastically alter with the series' formula and DNA. However, while this major change will never come officially, we now -- unofficially -- know what the series could look like with these changes thanks to a new mod.
The mod comes way of Ermaccer who recently shared a video of Mortal Kombat X, the second most recent Mortal Kombat game, showing off the title running with both a third-person and first-person camera view. As you would expect, it looks quite bonkers.
According to the modder, the game is weird to control from these perspectives, but it's possible to get used to it. In other words, it may break your mind at first, but it's certainly more than playable.

As you may know, Mortal Kombat isn't exactly known for its mods like some other games and series are, but the scene does seem to be growing, which hopefully means more great and interesting mods like this in the future.
