Blood flies in these new Mortal Kombat X new-gen screens

Wednesday, 11th June 2014 12:40 GMT By Dave Cook

Mortal Kombat X has received a batch of incredibly detailed screens out of E3 2014. As you’d expect, there will be blood, and lots of new character shot too.

It follows the first Mortal Kombat X gameplay footage, which was shown on Sony’s E3 2014 stage earlier this week. Battles are fast as you’d expect, but now throw in a new degree of stage interaction, similar to Injustice: Gods Among Us.

The screens below showcase new fighters, starting with Ferra & Torr. The duo are essentially a young girl riding on the back of a hulking warrior.

Then there’s D’Vorah, a winged female character capable of controlling insects, along with Aztec badass Kotal Kahn.

Although she’s not pictured, Mortal Kombat X will also feature Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade’s daughter Cassie.

Check out the screens from CVG and let us know what you think.

Mortal Kombat X will hit PC< PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2015.

    @Dark
    It is really shocking how both female characters are rather well dressed compared to MK9 ones. Kudos for making them at least more sensible.

    Well yes because they are not the attractive female charters of the Mortal Kombat world.
    Lets hope Kitana will be wearing a g-string! YAY!!!

    The game looks absolutely amazing and must say this is my most anticipated game right not cause Zelda ended up being cel shade rubbish : (

    Kotal Kahn, eh? Sounds like an offshoot of Shao Kahn, and also an impending explanation for Mortal Kombat killing Shao Kahn off but possibly being able to bring him back again in the future.

    After looking at the select screen and comparing it to MK9, it looks like many of MK9′s characters won’t be returning unless there’s a whole extra row planned that hasn’t been added yet. I counted 28 slots (26 if you exclude the two extra character slots) in MK9, but only 24 for MK10. Combine that with knowing 4 of those slots are new characters and that MK9 had 3 more DLC playables, and you have to wonder which characters are about to get left out of the game.

    I’m definitely hoping Kitana gets in. Mainly because I like that character above all others, but also because I think too much promotional emphasis went to Mileena for the last game. Sindel would also be great, she was quite the badass mature woman in MK9 (though that’s slightly undermined by having to be mind-controlled into it).

    @The_Red I’m honestly surprised by that. I expected that if anything, the team would make the women even more sexually explicit, and I don’t think I would’ve personally faulted them for it purely because of the kind of franchise Mortal Kombat is.

    @salarta
    That was actually one thing that annoyed me in MK9.
    Even for a semi-campy, soap opera-ish game like MK, some of the female designs had gone too far (I liked a few such as Kitana’s masked costume but others like Sonya were really questionable).

    They hurt the mood of story because as campy as it was in parts, I found the darker aspects and more canonical nods to be immensely enjoyable and even moving in parts. That may be due to the fact that I’m a sucker for MK1-8′s mythology but still, most of the scenes with Jade and Sonya felt badly out of place (Especially given their relatively strong personalities).

    The only ones that made sense were Mileena (Because she was manufactured and crazy) and Skarlet (The story / character explanation about need of blood on her skin or something). If there is no narrative justification, then don’t do it. As outlandish and crazy these characters are, they deserve a little more respect.

    Here’s hoping that the rest are also like this and aren’t ruined by terrible alt costumes and other things that belong to a Dead Or Alive beach spin-off.

    @The_Red It’s definitely a good thing that they’re providing women that have more reasonable attire, a woman like Sonya wearing the clothing she did while supposedly being part of a U.S. military force is just odd and doesn’t fit. Yet, unlike other franchises, I’m lax about sexuality in that one because the whole franchise was built on attempted shock factor and going to extremes. It used to be mainly about blood, but these days sex is more prevalent as a shock factor.
