From the official press release:
Mortal Kombat X combines cinematic presentation with all new gameplay to deliver the most brutal Kombat experience ever, offering a new fully-connected experience that launches players into a persistent online contest where every fight matters in a global battle for supremacy. For the first time, Mortal Kombat X gives players the ability to choose from multiple variations of each character impacting both strategy and fighting style. Players step into an original story showcasing some of the game's most prolific characters including Scorpion and Sub-Zero, while introducing new challengers that represent the forces of good and evil and tie the tale together.
A trailer for the first entry in series since the 2011's reboot "Mortal Kombat" was also released and features a brutal fight between Scorpion and Sub-Zero. Series co-creator Ed Boon has been teasing the announcement for a week and confirmed the rumors earlier today about the game.
"Mortal Kombat has always been about over-the-top, visceral fighting and with Mortal Kombat X we wanted to utilize the power of new-gen consoles to give players our most intense game yet," said Boon, who is NetherRealm's creative director. "The team has worked hard to make sure Mortal Kombat X delivers everything fans expect along with new characters, new game modes and an all-new graphics engine."
The title will be coming to Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PC when it debuts sometime in 2015.
