Although not the largest change detailed wise, there is still enough to shake up the meta a little bit.

Alongside the release of Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate, which combines all previous DLC for the base game, new changes came into spicy up the competitive scene. These changes were not massive. But they can still affect a lot of the high-end competitive developments in the scene. Here are all the changes coming to the game and we have highlighted the ones that are likely to send waves through the scene. These are also only the PC changes, though pretty much all platforms had the same balance changes. If you want to find the changes for specific platforms, you can see them on NetherRealm Studio's official changelog site here.
