The last Mortal Kombat game brought the series back from the brink of death, and showed that MK could still hold its own in today’s fighting game market. Now Kombat has returned with Mortal Kombat X.
The announcement showcases the classic feud of Scorpion and Sub Zero as they do battle in the forest. “Mortal Kombat has always been about over-the-top, visceral fighting and with Mortal Kombat X we wanted to utilise the power of new-gen consoles to give players our most intense game yet,” says NetherRealm Studios chief Ed Boon.
“The team has worked hard to make sure Mortal Kombat X delivers everything fans expect along with new characters, new game modes and an all new graphics engine.”
Looking at the trailer and the use of environments makes us wonder if players will be able to make use of the stage in a similar way to last years Injustice: Gods Among Us. The trailer is below:
Mortal Kombat X is due out on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox One and Xbox 360 sometime next year.
