The release of the 132-second official launch trailer of “Mortal Kombat X” on April 6 formally paves the way for the roll-out of the fighting game on the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 on April 14! It shall also be released incidentally on the last gen gaming consoles, the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3.
And as expected, in addition to the fighting, there’s a lot of blood and guts that is featured on the trailer, following the “Mortal Kombat” fighting game tradition. There are also the classic gory and brutal fatalities, notes Slash Gear.
Developed by NetherRealm, “Mortal Kombat X” is the 10th installment to the very successful bloody fighting video game franchise.
“Mortal Kombat X” is one of the most anticipated video games among gamers who crave for the unique kind of excitement and gore that the game brings forth.
The fighting scenes, the blood and guts spilled, and the brutal fatalities are featured on the trailer accompanied by the metal rock gem “Toxicity” by the rock band System of a Down. It no longer came as a surprise that the System of a Down soundtrack was chosen since Shavo Odadjian, who belonged to the same rock group, directed the official launch trailer.
Pulling no punches
“Mortal Kombat X” is certainly pulling no punches with its launch trailer. The teaser is mostly comprised of scenes from the game’s long story mode, which takes place 25 years after 2011’s “Mortal Kombat 9,” with some shots of actual gameplay included too.
Gamers will surely recognize many familiar faces, but also see scenes of new blood added to “Mortal Kombat X.”
The official launch trailer of “Mortal Kombat X” is definitely NSFW (not suitable for women), and is also a no-no to young audiences. Admittedly, some of the scenes are the most gruesome yet in the franchise.
The game will feature more than 100 fatalities including the familiar characters like Sub-Zero and Scorpion, to go along with some new characters and they will battle it out with one another.
The improved graphics of “Mortal Kombat X” has made the bloody game even bloodier and gruesome. The gameplay trailer also showed that the game is gory but beautifully brutal, especially among gamers and avid fans of the franchise.
Gamers who have pre-ordered “Mortal Kombat X” also have the brute Goro as bonus playable character.
It is likely that NetherRealm will be selling Goro as a purchasable character, along with several others, after “Mortal Kombat X” is officially rolled out on April 14, 2015.
After viewing the gameplay trailer, one gamer gave “Mortal Kombat X” praises, saying that it is looking better and better every time a new edition is released. He hopes that “Mortal Kombat X” shall also have a good story because a fighting game must also strive on a decent story.
Correction- there are over 100 BRUTALITIES. Each character only has 2 fatalities, so that’s only about 50 fatalities
Nevertheless though that is still a ton of ways to kill someone lol
