Netherrealm Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive have officially announced Mortal Kombat X, with a release coming sometime in 2015. The announcement was made with the stunning trailer seen above, which we are currently unsure if it represents actual gameplay on the new generation of consoles. Neither Warner Brothers or Netherrealm have commented, so it’s safe to assume it is a CG trailer.
It does give fans a good idea at how the gameplay will be though. Series regulars Sub-Zero and Scorpion square off in a fight that looks absolutely stellar. Many key features were shown off, like X-ray attacks that showcase the gruesome power of your moves with bones and muscles snapping, personal weapons, and environment interaction similar to Injustice: Gods Among Us. Warner Brothers confirmed that the game will be on display at E3 next week, and will release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
Netherrealm Studios told IGN the following about Mortal Kombat X today “(MKX) launches players into a persistent online contest where every fight matters in a global battle for supremacy. For the first time, Mortal Kombat X gives players the ability to choose from multiple variations of each character impacting both strategy and fighting style. Players step into an original story showcasing some of the game’s most prolific characters including Scorpion and Sub-Zero, while introducing new challengers that represent the forces of good and evil and tie the tale together.”
