Thank you Warner Bros. Warner Bros. interactive and nether realm studios have officially announced that the latest of the long-running fighting game series Mortal Kombat is due to release in 2015 on all gaming console in the form of Mortal Kombat X. So what’s new in this recent installment of the Mortal Kombat franchise? Well, it’s kind of hard to tell the debut trailer shows us some of the more familiar moves and classic Mortal Kombat brutality but other than that the details are slim it’s also clear that the trailer is not game graphics.
In a press release some notes that the new game might include “a new fully-connected experience that allows players to tear each other apart in an online contest where every fight matters in a global battle for supremacy.” I sure hope that doesn’t mean it’s an “always online” kind of gameplay. Mortal Kombat X will also include variations to all of the character that will presumably change their move sets.
This is good news for gamers. Let’s hope the controversial fighting game franchise can live up to our gore requirements and not make it too PG-13. As we all know Mortal Kombat has had a rough go over the past decade, it made a big comeback in 2011 with Mortal Kombat reboot. Critics loved the game, and it sold more than 3 million copies.
Hopefully we can learn more about Mortal Kombat X at the E3 2014 conference in Los Angeles.
