Risen from the dead: Mortal Kombat’s back!

Risen from the dead: Mortal Kombat’s back!

No more speculation. No more waiting. The new Mortal Kombat game has finally been announced. After days of leaks and teasers, the series creator Ed Boon officially announced the next instalment in the fight series yesterday.

The 10th game in the series will be titled Mortal Kombat X and is due for release next year. According to a leak from Amazon (thanks guys) we can also assume that it’s coming to Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC. It’s not official yet so bear with us!


The description for the above YouTube trailer states the game is "Fueled by next-gen technology, Mortal Kombat X combines unparalleled, cinematic presentation with dynamic gameplay to create an unprecedented Kombat experience,".

A later announcement has again highlighted the cinematic element in the presentation and hinted that online will be huge focus, delivering a fully connected experience" where players are involved in a "persistent online contest where every fighter matters in a global battle for supremacy."

To switch things up a bit, X will be the first Mortal Kombat game where you can choose character variations, giving you a different fighting style and ultimately strategy to the way you play.

That combined with the original story mode…. I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve nearly wee’d with excitement.

Can't wait to get out there and... FINISH HIM
