More MORTAL KOMBAT X Details and Artwork Revealed; Will Hit Current and Next-Gen Systems

Now that a new Mortal Kombat game has been officially announced, we have a few details thanks to a Warner Bros. press release, stating that Mortal Kombat X will arrive on next-gen and current systems and will feature "new characters, new game modes and an all new graphics engine."

After weeks of not-so-subtle teases, NetherRealm Studios officially announced a new game in the Mortal Kombat series today, titled Mortal Kombat X. After Amazon leaked that the game would arrive on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC, Warner Bros. Interactive issued this official press release, confirming the platforms and revealing a few more details on the game. Expect more to come at Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in LA next week, but here's an extract from the press release:

“Mortal Kombat is our acclaimed, world-renowned franchise and we are now advancing the fighting genre with Mortal Kombat X,” said Martin Tremblay, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “NetherRealm Studios is best in class at delivering games fans love and they are taking their iconic brand to the next level with Mortal Kombat X."

“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,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios. “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 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.

For once can we get a trailer where Sub Zero is not always getting his ass whooped by Scorpion. I love playing as Sub Zero and Noob Saibot.

i hope theres no wiz kalifa music in the game.

No Wii U?! Oh well, can't say I'm surprised after Arkham Origins (Wii U) not getting the DLCs and MK9 not being on the Wii U.
OpticBlastWins - 6/2/2014, 6:19 PM
SUBZERO needs some wins
TheBuoyWonder - 6/2/2014, 6:20 PM
MK9 came out way before the wii u.
Why would it be on it anyway?
OpticBlastWins - 6/2/2014, 6:23 PM
and im done

Damn sounds promising, MK9 was awesome. I'm sure this one will deliver the goods as well.

At this point it's news when a 3rd party game DOES come on the Wii U. If it's not Ubisoft, SEGA, or Capcom just don't even bother hoping.

Game looks beautifully brutal. Yeah, Subby got his ass kicked but he did put up a good fight and he'll be at the front of promotions with Scorpion regardless. Frankly I feel more bad about Liu Kang. He was originally the main protagonist of the games and he's become near irrelevant since Deadly Alliance.

Agreed. Sub Zero is my guy on MK.

Man that trailer looks so good. Why cant they get a movie like this?
Wiz verse is nice but the trailer would be better if it was just the instrumental.
MecoBoy - 6/2/2014, 7:33 PM
Se ve perron, pero no mamen, dejen que gané Sub-Zero por al menos una ves. Se están pasando de verga

Scorpion dominating as usual, I expect nothing less from my top main in Mortal Kombat (With Reptile being secondary). Loving his design, keep it classic yet respectfully updated for this new generation of gaming. If the trailer is anything to go by, environment weaponizing interaction looks like it is going to be a very promising mechanic within this upcoming game.

Looks great but they ruined it with the music choice.

TelaVizion - 6/3/2014, 3:46 AM
Bullshit, Sub would soooo kick his ass. Music went great with that clip
Enphlieuwince - 6/3/2014, 3:53 AM
Both characters look awesome. Can't wait to see more.

That scorpion suit would be the ultimate carnaval/halloween outfit. Someone make that happen!
IronRuhail - 6/3/2014, 4:29 AM
Looks amazing but I doubt it'll look anything like this on any of the consoles
Luminus - 6/3/2014, 4:33 AM
What's with the horrible music? What happened to actual score's? Adding rap to your video game does not make it cool, so stop it.

"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,” said Ed Boon

Then why is it being released on Xbox 360 & PS3?

I never understand these comments from developers. If you truly want us to move on from a video game console, how about you solely make it ON the new console your trying to sell it too.

I understand you want to keep generating money and all, but if you don't switch over, then will gamers learn to just stop all together. Mortal Kombat X already looks like it only deserves to be on next-gen, just like Arkham Knight. In the process you are just downgrading the quality in the end like Watch_Dogs did, which I always knew for a fact Watch_Dogs was going to be disappointing. It's like Assassins Creed, with computer tech and new names.
