Apparently, the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot will include not one, or a dozen, or even a hundred missions. In fact, we can expect a 300 mission long tower challenge that should give us plenty to do long after we’ve grown tired of tearing our opponent’s spine out. But really, when does that ever get dull?
The tower challenges start off simple enough with really basic missions that act as tutorials before getting progressively more difficult. The more difficult missions really test your skills in the form of different versions of familiar foes, removing some of your abilities or even giving your enemies extra abilities. Head past the break for a few extra details on what you can expect from the later tower challenges. If you’re able to make it near the end your mastery of Mortal Kombat’s controls and combos will really be tested as the fights become more complex. For example, there’s a mission later on that has you control two characters, Sub-Zero and his nemesis Scorpion, and pits you against another duo with the catch that Sub-Zero can only damage the enemy highlighted in blue and Scorpion can only hurt the orange highlighted opponent.
If you can complete the final mission, dubbed “End Game”, you’ll be rewarded for your efforts. As someone who’s never been terribly adept at fighting games I’m positive this isn’t something I’d ever be able to complete, so to everyone who tries I can only say good luck.
