After being teased relentlessly by NetherRealm Studios Creative Director Ed Boon, “Mortal Kombat X” was finally made official Monday. The game received a release date of 2015 with no platforms specified for now though the trailer released suggests it is aiming for the new PS4 and Xbox One consoles plus the PC with the possibility of PS3 and Xbox 360.

“Fueled by next-gen technology, ‘Mortal Kombat X’ combines unparalleled, cinematic presentation with dynamic gameplay to create an unprecedented Kombat experience,” the official description on the announcement trailer reveals.

While the trailer does look highly detailed, don’t expect it to necessarily be reflective of the final product. It’s a CGI trailer produced by Digital Dimension and not an in-engine gameplay trailer. However, it does tell us several things to expect when “Mortal Kombat X” is finally released.

Like “Injustice: Gods Among Us,” the 2.5D stages will feature weapons or objects that players can use against their opponent. There’s also indication that there will be some environmental destruction.

Running may be back but the X-Ray vision that occurs during particularly punishing blows is definitely returning along with Fatalities. Fatalities are always a given with a “Mortal Kombat” game but NetherRealms appears to have stepped up the brutality as witnessed by the finishing move that Scorpion pulls on Sub-Zero in the trailer.

The game will also feature an original track by rapper Wiz Khalifa called “Can’t Be Stopped.” The track is featured in the announcement video that was released.

The 2011 “Mortal Kombat” successfully rebooted the franchise after a number of hit and miss sequels. “Injustice: Gods Among Us” further established the revitalization of NetherRealm’s fighting style in the ultra-competitive genre. How the developer will continue the story and evolve the gameplay will be interesting to witness but expect more over the coming days and post- E3.
