Just when you thought Mortal Kombat X couldn’t get any better. BAM! NetherRealm gave their latest gore-fest another blast from the spice and dropped a reveal so insanely awesome that 9 year old me in the past just got chills!
Although the awesome revolves around DLC- insert mandatory boo hisses here- the additional characters that have been announced couldn’t fit this over the top, world of violence any better!
We’ll get the ones nobody cares about out the way first. Sarcastic yay. You can play as Tanya and Tremor. Who are they, you ask? Nobody. That’s who. Moving on.
Alright! Only good stuff from here out. Just like we had Freddy grace the annuals of MK9, it looks like MKX has gone one step further and thrown the unstoppable, machete wielding, hater of horny teens into the mix. Of course I’m talking about the one and only, Jason Voorhees! If the fatalities aren’t call backs to his classic- sorry- klassic kills throughout his 20 year career, shame on you NetherRealm. Shame on you.
And finally- although it’s no suprise as it’s the title of the article- the ugly motherfucker / alien hunter known as the Predator is also bringing the pain in MKX! Now that’s cool and all but I think it overshadows the much more bad ass inclusion in this pack, a Carl Weathers skin for Jax! That’s right! You can play as Dillion, the solider that’s more bicep than man!
Other than what the characters in game models look like, we’re very much in the dark here. No move sets, play styles or- and I’ll avoid the spoilers at all costs- fatalities. How do you think these characters will play? And that will their signature moves be? Tell us in the comments or on Twitter!
Mortal Kombat X releases on April 14 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
