This time around, each character comes with a number of variations, which can change not only your look, but your fighting style and strategy as well. This just adds to the amazing visuals for the game – we’re promised “cinematic presentation” – to make Mortal Kombat X one of the most brutal games in recent history.
There’s also an online component for the game – a “persistent online contest where every fight matters in a global battle for supremacy” – keep an eye out for more on that one shortly.
Mortal Kombat X (that’s “ex“, not “ten“) is currently in development at NetherRealm Studios (where else?), and is headed to Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. The studio – and gamers in general – are hoping the new game doesn’t run into the refused classification problems the previous one did.
