“It has begun!”
After years of rumors and speculation (and one wild countdown), WB Games and NetherRealm Studios have officially announced Mortal Kombat X. The tenth game in the long-running fighting franchise will be released sometime in 2015 for next-generation platforms.
According to NetherRealm, Mortal Kombat X will “[combine an] unparalleled, cinematic presentation with dynamic gameplay to create an unprecedented Kombat experience.” You can get your first taste of this cinematic presentation in the game’s debut trailer, which features Sub-Zero and Scorpion (who else?) battling in a snowy forest. The trailer is scored with an original track from Wiz Khalifa titled “Can’t Be Stopped.”
A more in-depth official announcement will likely be released later today and we’ll surely hear more about Mortal Kombat X at this year’s E3 Expo.
