Mortal Kombat brutalities make a return, story focus on Mortal Kombat warrior’s kids.


NeitherRealm studios released two awesome trailers for Mortal Kombat X this week showing off the improved Brutality system and the trailer for the game’s story mode.

Starting with the Brutalities which were first introduced in the console version of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, in which players would preform a long combo which resulted into the character exploding into a thousand pieces. In Mortal Kombat X, the developer has hinted at the possiblity of over “100 brutalities, each with varying levels of difficulty.” To pull off a Brutality, players will have to complete a goal such as win a match with a throw or don’t block during a match.

According to NeitherRealm, the brutalities are meant to bring back “the Humiliation factor” and was designed to be something that was “much more accessible and fit with the gameplay” of MKX.

The big part of what made Mortal Kombat 9 awesome was its story mode. MKX looks to be no different. Taking place 25 years after the events of MK9, the story follows new comers Cassie Cage, who is the daughter of Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade; Jacqueline Briggs, daughter of Jax; Takashi Takena, son of the blind swordsman Kenshi; and Kung Jin, a descendant of Kung Lao (also the character who was mistakenly listed as Kung Lao) as they battle Mileena and her Outworld rebel army.

Several other characters shown in the trailer, however it is yet to be seen if they will make it into the roster, those characters included MK4 Boss Shinnok, and Sindel. Mortal Kombat X is still set for an April 14th 2015 release on PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
