Who’s ready to perform some bone crushing x-ray finishers and gruesome fatalities? The 10th installment of Ed Boon’s Mortal Kombat, developed by NetherRealm Studios, is right around the corner and gamers are ecstatic to play one of the most serious fighters made for this generation.
It is stated, for the most part, the storyline of Mortal Kombat X will pick up after the events of the previous game, then will transition 25 years into the future when Elder God Shinnok and his army attacks earth. This will explain why some of our favorite characters like Johnny Cage, Liu Kang & Kung Lao appeared to have aged significantly.
Mortal Kombat X will introduce handful of new characters including Cassie Cage (Daughter of Johnny Cage & Sonya Blade), Ferra & Torr, Kotal Kahn, D’Vorah, Erron Black, Jacqueline Briggs (Daughter of Jax) and Takashi Takeda. So far, DLC characters include Predator, Jason, Tanya and Tremor. All default characters in Mortal Kombat X, will have three variations of themselves with unique and different move-sets.
The gameplay looks similar to past NetherRealm fighters but still incredibly fun. NetherRealm studios have added more brutalities and interactable stages where the environment can be used in fights similar to 2013’s Injustice: Gods Among Us.
The visuals in Mortal Kombat X are set to impress. NetherRealm did a great job adding color and light to a game with a very dark tone and atmosphere.
I’m very excited for Mortal Kombat X and can’t wait to start practicing for the battles that await me online. Are you excited for the game? What are you opinions on the new characters?
Soo…you coppin’ it?
