Update: Warner Bros has let loose some more details about Mortal Kombat X, including how it will release for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. They then gave out some information regarding the gameplay and characters:
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.
Ed Boon added:
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. 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.
Mortal Kombat X will make its first public appearance at E3 2014.
Original Story: After weeks of not-so-subtle teasing by Ed Boon, the Mortal Kombat Co-Creator has confirmed that the next game in the series will simply be known as Mortal Kombat X. In the trailer announcing MKX, a 2015 release date is also given, but oddly, platforms aren’t listed (Amazon said it’s coming to PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC):
Here’s the description from the video:
Fueled by next-gen technology, Mortal Kombat X combines unparalleled, cinematic presentation with dynamic gameplay to create an unprecedented Kombat experience.
Featuring an original track by Wiz Khalifa titled “Can’t Be Stopped.”
With E3 right around the corner, we should be hearing more about Mortal Kombat X next week, so stay tuned.
