Mortal Kombat 11 is getting a new kind of co-op mode for a fighting game, developer NetherRealms revealed during a livestream on Thursday. The mode will let up to three players work together to take down a larger enemy.

This new mode, called Team Raids, pits three players against their own individual opponents that all work toward taking down the big enemy as a team. During these individual fights, players will have the chance to do specific challenges that could give the entire team power ups, or do extra damage to the main boss.

Each of these fights are timed so everyone on your three-person team will have to pull their weight. As their name implies, this new mode takes inspiration from more traditional MMO raids and is intended to be one of Mortal Kombat 11’s most difficult challenges.

According to the developers there will be several of these new co-op raids rolling out with Mortal Kombat 11’s next patch, although no specific date was given.
