New Mortal Kombat 11 Update Nerfs Sheeva And Cetrion, But Buffs Shao Khan

It's been two years since NetherRealm Studios released Mortal Kombat 11 and we're still seeing regular updates. Though we don't have a specific name for this one, a fresh balancing update has just launched and unusually, it doesn't need downloading.

To apply these changes, all you have to do is connect Mortal Kombat 11 online. It's a big one for Sheeva and Cetrion, significantly nerfing key moves and reducing their health to 950. Sheeva's now got a set delay on Dragon Drop, while Cetrion's Deadly Winds issues less damage on block.
