NetherRealm Studios Bringing Mortal Kombat X to PC and Consoles in 2015
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has officially announced the next entry in the critically acclaimed fighting series Mortal Kombat, unsurprisingly entitled Mortal Kombat X. NetherRealm Studios is once again performing the development duties following the success of Mortal Kombat (9) in 2011 and last year's Injustice: Gods Among Us.
"Mortal Kombat X combines cinematic presentation with all new gameplay to deliver the most brutal Kombat experience ever, offering a new fully-connected experience that launches players into a persistent online contest where every fight matters in a global battle for supremacy. For the first time, Mortal Kombat X gives players the ability to choose from multiple variations of each character impacting both strategy and fighting style. Players step into an original story showcasing some of the game’s most prolific characters including Scorpion and Sub-Zero, while introducing new challengers that represent the forces of good and evil and tie the tale together."
Mortal Kombat X will be coming to PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 in 2015. While the actual gameplay hasn't been discussed or shown, there is one instance in the cinematic trailer above that implies the interactive environmental objects featured in Injustice will be coming to Mortal Kombat X. But I'm sure we'll find out for sure next week during E3. It'll also be interesting to see if one (or more) of the new characters is a DC character from Injustice, as Scorpion crossed over into that.
