‘Mortal Kombat X’ Ready to Fight in 2015

While Warner Bros. is developing a new film around the “Mortal Kombat” videogame franchise, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced “Mortal Kombat X” as the next installment in the fighting series.

“Mortal Kombat” co-creator and NetherRealm Studios creative director Ed Boon showed off the first trailer for the game, which emphasises the rich visuals players can expect when the game hits next-generation consoles in 2015.

The cinematic sequence shown is a night fight between Scorpion and Sub-Zero in a snowy location deep in a forest, backed by “Can’t Be Stopped,” an original track by Wiz Khalifa.

“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,” Boon said. “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.”

Warner Bros. Interactive will show off the game at next week’s Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.

Featuring an original story starring the game’s iconic characters, a new element to the series will launch players into a persistent online contest where every fight matters in a global battle for supremacy, WBIE said. For the first time, “Mortal Kombat X” will also give players the ability to choose from multiple variations of each character impacting both strategy and fighting style.
