Mortal Kombat X – Road to Review
Being the tenth installment in the series, and the first game to be released on next-gen consoles, Mortal Kombat X has gathered a lot of hype and expectations from fans. The newer hardware can, and should, take MK X to a hole new level, leaving all other titles behind in a cloud of dust.
Development started in April 2012, and three years later, Mortal Kombat X is ready to amaze us with its gruesome fatalities and incredible gameplay mechanics.
We're introduced to a new line of playable characters including: Cassie Cage, Jacqueline Briggs (daughter of Jax), Takashi Takeda (son of Kenshi), and Kung Jin (son of Kung Lao). Every new character will be adding some new mechanics to the game, alongside a new set of abilities and fatalities. Everyone has the same purpose, saving Earthrealm.
As always, Mortal Kombat X's story is mixed in with short gameplay elements. Every cutscene ends with a fight, and every fight ends with a cutscene, making the perfect loop. Rumors indicated that the story mode of the game will only last four hours, showing where NetherRealm's focus is directed to, the multiplayer.
The prequel comics under the same name reveal a bit more information about the game, and at the same time gives us the first taste of Mortal Kombat.
More than a handful stages are available in Mortal Kombat at launch, with more to come via the DLCs/ Season Pass.
