Following on from the rather dark and brooding reveal of the game last week, Warner Bros. and Netherrealm Studios have revealed the first ever gameplay of the new Mortal Kombat game, Mortal Kombat X. Apparently, it’s pronounced X, not “ten”, so there’s that too.
The trailer shows pretty much what you’d usually expect from your standard Mortal Kombat game – a lot of blood, gore and some vicious special and finishing moves. New to the fold are interactable pieces of the environment – and while these were somewhat broken in Injustice, Ed Boon has promised that they will all be blockable and a large majority of them are for more mobility options rather than attacking ones.
The trailer also featured three new characters. We saw two of them in some detail, while the third was shown in a blink and you’ll miss it fatality montage at the end of the footage.
