According to IGN, there were six playable character for the Mortal Kombat X E3 build. Those characters include Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Cassie Cage, Kotal Khan, Ferra and D’vorah. The game takes place 25 years after the events of the previous Mortal Kombat. As you can guess by the names, some of the characters are descendents of previous Mortal Kombat characters
Different fighting styles are also returning to the game. Last seen in games like Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance and Mortal Kombat: Deception. However, you won’t be able to change your fighting style on the fly. Players choose which one they want before the match starts.
Characters are also able to run and transition look smoother during gameplay. Gameplay has been borrowed from Injustice, allow for stage interactions that was seen in the trailer. More videos and screen for Mortal Kombat X when they come in.
It’s hard to imagine that almost half of the year has gone by so fast. So far 2014 seems to have suffered from the transition to the new consoles. While there have been a few surprises (Bravely Default, South Park), there haven’t been many big triple A games to talk about. However, the year is not over and with the recent arrivals of games like TitanFall, inFamous: Second Son and Dark Souls, the rest of 2014 is looking pretty exciting. Here are my Top 10 Most Anticipated Games for the Rest of 2014:
I’m generally not one to get scared by horror games. However, the “Horror” element has been missing for a while now. Leave it to Shinji Makami, the father of survival horror and creator of the Resident Evil series, to get me excited again. Makami’s The Evil Within looks disturbingly horrific … in a good way. From all the previews, this game looks to be a technical masterpiece. Lighting that gives off the right amount of dark that leave you not lost but wondering whats around the next corner. The enemies are relentless and powerful. Also, damage is crucial. Limbs stay hurt until they can be patched up, leaving escape difficult.
Look for this one August 26, 2014.
