Story appears to be a rather important part of Mortal Kombat X, if this trailer is any indication.
Netherrealm appear to like their fighting game stories. Mortal Kombat 9 had a big (and rather decent) one interweaved throughout, and Injustice managed a fairly entertaining yarn alongside its BIFF KAPOW shenanigans. If this trailer – revolving around a rebel army, a mystical amulet, and a whole lot of violence – is any indication, then Mortal Kombat X seems like it’s carrying on the tradition.
Mortal Kombat X is due to hit (and possibly decapitate, or use its spine as dental floss, or something) the PC on 14 April. Trailer below!Related to this article
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.
