Mortal Kombat X video is all about story mode, new characters

After promising a new Mortal Kombat X reveal "soon", NetherRealm Studios has made good on said promise by releasing the story trailer.

The video shows parts of the story mode featuring Mileena, which takes place 25 years after the events of 2011's Mortal Kombat.

Outworld has become a larger threat and new fighters joining the ranks to battle Mileena's rebel army are Jax's daughter Jacqueline Briggs, Kenshi's son Takashi Takeda and Kung Jin who is a descendant of Kung Lao.

  • Goro
  • Mileena Ermac
  • Scorpion
  • Sub-Zero
  • Cassie Cage

  • Reptile
  • Kitana
  • Kung Lao
  • Quan Chi

Rumored fighters:

  • Sindel
  • Shang Tsung
  • Cyrax
  • Sonya
  • Rain
  • Shinnok
  • Jax
  • Johnny Cage

Mortal Kombat X is coming to PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on April 14.
