So Geras joins the much-desired klan of franchise regulars thanks to his narrative prominence. Former minion of Kronika, the colossus of sand has the sole mission of protecting the Hourglass of Time as well as its master, and therefore poses as a faithful adviser to Liu Kang, the new God of Fire.
Mouth full of sand
Gameplay-wise, Geras is still a huge golgoth, ready to slaughter the cast of Mortal Kombat 1 with punches and time manipulation. In particular, the golem has a ranged counter that freezes the opponent in time, no matter where he is, which will obviously help him calm the ardor of the zoners. A valuable tool for such a slow character. As in Mortal Kombat 11Geras can also fight by summoning walls of sand to crush his victims into.
Stay til the end of its trailer for two Fatalities hair-raising: Geras sanding his victim’s face in a torrent of sand, and Liu Kang unleashing his divine powers to summon a black hole (nothing less).
