The Cyber Lin Kuei returned with a vengeance in Mortal Kombat 11! The initiative was reactivated in story to serve Kronika under the leadership of a newly converted Frost. The return treated us to the Lin Kuei Cyber Assembly arena, and non-playable appearances by Sektor and Cyrax. Take a closer look at the story mode fighters in recently discovered concept art:

The designs were posted to ArtStation by Warner Bros Games Montreal Concept Artist Emmanuel Julian. His concept art shows various designs for Sektor, including one emblazoned with the glowing blue symbol of the Lin Kuei clan. Julian also revealed closeup face plates designed for both Sektor and Cyrax.

The klassic cyber-assassins were non-playable characters in Mortal Kombat 11, but data-mining has produced some evidence within the game code of potentially expanded roles. This concept art does not prove a future full release for the characters, but if they were to be included as downloadable content, additional customizable designs would likely be a feature of their playable expansion.

Similar design art showing Ermac's Krypt cameo design was recently unearthed from the portfolio of another contributing artist from Warner Bros Games Montreal.

Sektor and Cyrax debuted in Mortal Kombat 3, where they pursued Sub-Zero as part of the original plot of forced automation by the Lin Kuei clan. Their origin story was repurposed and elaborated upon in the 2011 reboot, but the characters were subsequently killed off in sequel tie-in comics, leading to the invention of a variation-based hybrid character for Mortal Kombat X called Triborg.
