E3 2014: A look at Mortal Kombat X

The world’s biggest video game expo has come and gone for another year and obviously we’re super excited about Mortal Kombat X. Here is part 1 of DMK’s thoughts on Mortal Kombat X so far.

Holy Grail:

The look.

Reportedly the engine is a re-coded version of the same Unreal 3 engine as used in Mortal Kombat (2011). When I heard this I was concerned. But once you see the footage, that concern disappears. It looks GORGEOUS. However within that, let’s consider that the game is going cross-gen meaning it will be out for X-Box One, PS4 as well as their older cousins in X-Box 360 and PS3. I am under no illusions that the footage we’ve seen is from a ‘next-gen’ console. The older consoles simply wouldn’t be capable of that level of fidelity while maintaining the high frame rate fighting games demand. So if you haven’t upgraded and are rejoicing the cross-gen move, be aware, your experience may differ from what we’ve seen so far.

10) DLC 2.0

While we got some with 2011’s Mortal Kombat, NetherRealm Studios’ other fighting game Injustice showed just how downloadable content should be done. Season Pass, 6 additional fighters and so many costumes it was hard to keep track. I’d like to see Mortal Kombat X go one step further with additional Stages, bonus fatalities and maybe even an extra game mode (Mortal Kombat Karts anyone?)
