If you know your biology and a bit of evolution history, you should also be knowing that us humans evolved from a certain species of killer apes. And hence we have this certain affinity towards blood and anything that's a bit gory. You could take a cue from movies such as the Cannibal Holocaust (leaves an ever-lasting impression in your mind) and Silence of the Lambs.
Moving out the movie scene for the time being, even the videogame industry has played host to a number of gory games like the God of War franchise or Manhunt (now banned), but none have made as big an impact as the entire Mortal Kombat series with intense bone crushing sequences and equally gory fatalities to round it off.
While the previous Mortal Kombat 9 (alongside the DLC-filled Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition) satisfied this thirst of blood for us to a great extent, the upcoming Mortal Kombat X seems like it will build on those factors more with gore re-defined in HD. And going by whatever we have seen off the game via the numerous trailers, it sure will live up to the standards.
But before the final release of the Mortal Kombat X, we are looking at a round-up of all the details we have gathered so far for the game. We are sure there will be more revelations made from the game going forward, but here's everything you need to know about the new game.
The Online Offering Will be Big
Going by what NetherRealm Studios had to day about the game, the new Mortal Kombat will make sure every match you play count one way or the other so as to offer more impetus to the multiplayer side of things. While it's still not clear as to how big this reach-out will be, but it is indeed for certain that the multiplayer for MK X will shine with its help. In fact, sites have spoken about the set-up of a certain global ranking module for players to rank against each other. And since this is the first Mortal Kombat ever to head over to the next-gen consoles, the devs may be inclined to introduce newer modules of multiplayer that will enhance the overall gameplay.
Characters Come in Multiple Versions
While there are new characters to choose from this time around, also know that you will be able to choose several different versions of a certain character to play with. Sure this might not be the biggest piece of information you may or may not look ahead to, but it still beats the trouble of downloading DLCs for other versions of characters (which are mostly down to just change in costume). We saw something similar to this with the Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition bringing several different costumes for each character, but this time you shall be getting them from the very go.
New Characters, New Fatalities
Every year a new Mortal Kombat comes, we are always aniticipating something new. And to expect new characters may just be the least of those expectations, but you can indeed expect the same from the new Mortal Kombat X. For starters, you shall be getting characters like Ferra & Tor, Kotal Kahn, Cassie Cage (daughter of Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade) and D'Vorah to name a few. Plus, rest assured that all the fan favourites such as Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Raiden and Kano (now old) will be available in brand new avatars.
This new Mortal Kombat takes place 25 years after the event of Mortal Kombat 9, and with most of its roster about the dead in the last game, it will be interesting to see if NRS brings them back again from the dead or will replace them with others. While you can rest assured that those characters will be available in the mano-e-mano roster of things, the story of it could kick off into a newer direction. We aren't sure still, but we have a gut feeling that Cassie Cage might have a role to play in this one as to how the story pans out. Also we want to see a more detailed role for the likes of Kenshi and Sheeva this time around.
