The latest trailer for Mortal Kombat X is for TV, and it’s one of those live-action thingies that the kids like so much.
Before you get excited by the prospect of a live-action Scorpion fighting a live-action Sub-Zero (or horrified by the memories of the Mortal Kombat movies), I should warn you that it’s not that sort of live-action trailer. It’s just lots of people running around to find out where the fight is going on, followed by a cut to some very fast-moving snippets of gameplay footage. So yeah, it’s not exactly Dying Light‘s live-action parkour stuff.
It’s also set to the uplifting strains of System of a Down’s Chop Suey, which nearly made me replace the video with this for comedy purposes.
Mortal Kombat X is due out on 14 April.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
