Mortal Kombat X is hitting store shelves in just a few weeks, so of course the markers of the game want to get you hyped up. In order to do this, Mortal Kombat X creators Netherrealm released a brand new video that shows off the first 30 minutes of the game in story mode.
Polygon got the first look at this particular video and also got to play a little bit of the massive fights that are mixed in between the story. In this Mortal Kombat X video, players will see Johnny Cage and Sonya take center stage, along with Raiden and other well-known characters from the long-running Mortal Kombat series.
The “good guys” will have to take on an elder god Chinook as he invades the Earth for a second time. Not only will our Mortal Kombat heroes have to take on this most powerful god, but they’ll also have to take on some fallen friends, who have returned as evil versions of their former selves.
This video is hardly the first to show off a good deal of the story mode, but it certainly gives the deepest look at what Mortal Kombat X actually offers fighting game fans. Still, other than a little bit more of the story. the video isn’t showing off anything that hasn’t been seen in other Mortal Kombat games. One has to wonder whether or not allowing this much of the story mode out to the web is going to actually backfire a bit.
There are people right here at Inquisitr that are definitely on the fence about Mortal Kombat X. One has to think that gamers are also not quite sure whether they should be excited or disappointed by what has been shown so far.
At the very least, it seems as though fans of the long running series will be excited to see a version that is playable on the Xbox One and PS4. Those same fans will have to decide whether or not being able to play the game on the newest generation consoles is worth the money. Those who haven’t played the game in a while will at least derive solace from the fact that characters they remember from the original game have been confirmed as being unlockable throughout this new version.
Mortal Kombat X will officially launch for the Sony PS4, Microsoft Xbox One and PC on April 14. Will you be playing or sitting this one out? Let us know in the comments below.
