NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. recently announced a Mortal Kombat charity event named Kombat for a Kause. The 16-player tournament will help raise money to support the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

The week-long event will begin tomorrow, April 20, and run exclusively through Facebook Gaming. Ending on April 26, the raised funds will be donated to the United Nations Foundation, trading the brand's hyper-violence for a peaceful cause.

Kombat for a Kause will feature some actors associated with Mortal Kombat 11 and other celebrities, like famous American wrestler and actress, Ronda Rousey, and Jason Mewes of Jay and Silent Bob fame. In a tweet, the former MMA star mentioned that she would be playing the character she voiced for the game, Sonya Blade, and is being coached by unCAGEDgamez's David Cage. 

The tournament will also feature a pro player single-elimination bracket. Players in attendance include the likes of Alexandre "Hayatei" Dubé-Bilodeau, Denom "A F0xy Grampa" Jones, and Ryan "Dragon" Walker, so expect some high-level play.

The Kombat for a Kause stream will run each day from 11 AM - 2 PM PST.
