Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has officially announced Mortal Kombat X, the next installment of the iconic Mortal Kombat fighting game series. Mortal Kombat X will bring the series to the next generation of consoles when it debuts on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 – as well as PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows PC – in 2015. Mortal Kombat X will be developed by NetherRealm Studios, who developed the most recent Mortal Kombat - which rebooted the franchise - and Injustice: Gods Among Us, the highly successful DC Comics fighting game. "Mortal Kombat is our acclaimed, world-renowned franchise and we are now advancing the fighting genre with Mortal Kombat X," said Martin Tremblay, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "NetherRealm Studios is best in class at delivering games fans love and they are taking their iconic brand to the next level with Mortal Kombat X." "Mortal Kombat has always been about over-the-top, visceral fighting and with Mortal Kombat X we wanted to utilize the power of new-gen consoles to give players our most intense game yet," said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios. "The team has worked hard to make sure Mortal Kombat X delivers everything fans expect along with new characters, new game modes and an all new graphics engine." Mortal Kombat X seeks to combine cinematic style and new gameplay to create the most visceral and brutal Mortal Kombat yet. The game will offer a new "fully-connected" experience that places players into persistent online competition so that every match matters. Mortal Kombat X will, for the first time in the series, allow players to choose between multiple versions of the same character, altering strategy and style. Mortal Kombat X will also have an original story that features series stalwarts like Scorpion and Sub-Zero while also introducing new combatants.
