The news of the character reveal follows the game’s first trailer, which depicted long-time series favorites Sub-Zero and Scorpion fighting each other in a battle to the death. Be sure to watch that here. The trailer itself is scored with a new original song by Wiz Khalifa, so that alone makes it well worth the watch.
According to the developers at NetherRealm Studios, 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.”
More than just a follow-up to the long-running series, players will have 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.
