‘Mortal Kombat X’ Reveal Trailer Asks: Who’s Next?

MKX_1

Fighter fans and gorehounds rejoice! Mortal Kombat X is official, it’s coming in 2015, and its reveal trailer, which you can find below, is teasing some intriguing changes to the series.

For one, it looks like the fighters will be able to interact with the environment, as Sub-Zero rips a branch from a nearby tree and turns it into a melee weapon mid-fight, then he swings on another branch to kick Scorpion in his ugly, vengeful face. We’ve seen a bit of this in past entries in the series, but never to this extent. Knowing your way around each environment could be very important.

Another change they’re teasing is the option to choose between multiple variations of each fighter. According to the press release, this will impact “both strategy and fighting style.”

Mortal Kombat has always been about over-the-top, visceral fighting and with Mortal Kombat X we wanted to utilize the power of new-gen consoles to give players our most intense game yet,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director at NetherRealm Studios. “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.”

Mortal Kombat X is slated to release on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2015.

    It’s hilarious to me that most of the comments on youtube mainly center around people being pissed that Scorpion beats Sub-Zero’s ass again in the new trailer.

    • Waveboy

      The rap present in the trailer is the only real issue here. ;)
      Talk about selling out to these new generation of ghetto brats.lol

      • ThunderDragoon

        Agreed. They’re catering to the disrespectful kids who play Call of Duty and talk trash to other people.

      • Chandler Of-Adelaide

        I’m not a fan of rap at all but so what if they used rap? Generalising people that listen to a certain genre is ignorant to say the least and it’s far from selling out.

    • Chandler Of-Adelaide

      It’s because Sub Zero is way cooler than Scorpion.

      • VictorCrowley

        That is an irrefutable fact. He is very cooler.

    I’m just hoping this game doesn’t feel like another repeat Mortal Kombat. I’ve always been excited about the MK games, but not nearly as much as me racing to the arcades back in the day to play Mk1, MK2, MK3 and UMK3. Me and my game pro magazine with the list of moves.

    Was exciting when the characters looked less animated and the excitement of which characters returned for the new installment. Now it’s just lets put everyone in there to make everyone happy. They need to change the formula and not just make a new MK game just because of next gen systems.

    Why in the fuck did they add rap to the trailer?….. what a nice way of selling out to the 14 year cool kids these days huh? Throw in some gore, some unfitting rap. that will get the insecure gangster tweenies attention. FAIL of a trailer, but i’m still looking forward to this.

    • Hurst_Finest_TR3

      Why not add rap in the trailer? The lyrics match the concept of the trailer and the instrumental went perfect with it. I don’t understand why people are so close minded, tired of hearing metal/rock every trailer, nice to see a change for once. Looking forward to this game!

    I love Mortal Kombat, The last game was amazing! If these were indeed snippets of gameplay- as it looked like it – you can incorporate elements of your environment for graphic and constant combos! Well done!!!

    aside from the shitty rap music they play in this trailer, which does not fit the game in any way shape or form, this looks pretty sweet. Nice to see Scorpion whooping Sub-Zero’s ass. Scorpion has always been my favorite. I really enjoyed Mortal Kombat 9, I got the special PS3 edition with Freddy Krueger and Kratos from God of War. Too bad they didn’t include Jason too. (Why’d they give Freddy two gloves though?)
