Synergy! Mortal Kombat X has a F2P version on mobile, and playing it will net you some goodies in the main game.
Mortal Kombat X will have an official fightpad for those who prefer that to an arcade stick, and regular controller.
However, those in the UK and want to buy the pad for the PS3 and PS4, will have a tough time getting one, sadly.
Franchise creator Ed Boon also confirmed that the PS3 fight sticks will work with the PS4 version of MKX.
At gamescom 2014, studio boss Ed Boon confirmed that Mortal Kombat X will be a "direct continuation" of MK9; and that it will span 25 years.
While Mortal Kombat X is set for release on April 10, there's already a day one 1.8GB update out now.
From the PS4's update history, here's what NetherRealm changed:
There's a few more changes (allegedly) that the patch did, and you can read more about it here.
Can't wait next week? We have a lot of gameplay videos to whet your appetite!
Spoiler? Nah, not really...well, it might be for some.
Nope, no demo for anyone, sadly.
In order to be focused "100 percent" for next-gen, Warner Bros. has tapped High Voltage to develop MKX for PS3 and Xbox 360.
High Voltage has worked on Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition for the PS4 and PC, and a few other games.
Mortal Kombat X will have a Season Pass, which its predecessor also had.
The "Kombat Pack" will include four full characters, and five new skin packs.
In an interview, NetherRealm Studios Marketing Manager Brian Goodman let slip that the company was not “yet” prepared to discuss micro-transactions, hinting that they could be present in the game. He then noted that a future announcement would be made on the subject.
First the good news: players can try the DLC characters without buying the content in the "Living Towers" mode.
However, even so, there's a lot of DLC stuff planned for MKX, and you might balk at it if you're not used to that sort of thing
The Predator has also been confirmed to make an appearance
Remember Spawn? He might also make an appearance, too.
Finally, another bit of good news! NetherRealm has confirmed that MKX will not have platform-exclusive characters. That's good, right?
Spicing things up in MKX are the Living Towers and Faction Wars. It's kind of hard to explain, so I'll let this video do the talking.
If you like collecting various stuff, Mortal Kombat X will have a Premium, Limited, and Kollector's edition available at launch.
Ranging from $90-$180, the content included varies a fair bit.
