It’s been a busy couple of weeks for Mortal Kombat X, NetherRealm Studios’ latest entry in the long running fighting franchise. With the game just a few weeks away from release, fans have already seen a lot from the title including a varied list of new and returning characters, another compelling story mode, and a brutal new game engine to power it all.
As leaks and rumors continue to circulate around the internet on a daily basis, there’s apparently more that gamers don’t know. Recently, the game had its full achievement list posted online which featured screenshots of the game revealing some previously unannounced characters and modes. With another Kombat Kast Twitch stream planned for later today, a brand new finishing mode is also being teased from a reliable source.
Series creator Ed Boon, known to troll his followers over social media prior to a big announcement, has once again begun to stir the pot with a recent tweet. The focus this time appears to be around a new ‘-ality’ move for the game to go along the already revealed Brutalities, faction kills and Fatalities.
Posted yesterday on Twitter, Boon goes on to hint:
Not content to stop there, Boon also goes on to tease the name of the stream:
To further entice fans, NetherRealm has mysteriously named the stream “Whips, Sais, and a little surprise” in an attempt to leave its audience to speculate on what that may mean. If the leaks are to be believed, the reference could point to fan-favorite character Mileena being involved somehow as those are her weapons of choice.
While the final roster hasn’t yet been publicly revealed, the team at NetherRealm Studios has been busy with character announcements like Friday the 13th killer Jason Vorhees being added through a new DLC season pass, releasing new story mode details with Sonya Blade and Johnny Cage, and even going so far as to deconfirm secret joke character Mokap. It would appear that a couple more character announcements are coming later today based on the title of the stream.
If recent events are to be believed, there’s still a lot that isn’t known with Mortal Kombat X so it’s not surprising that we’re getting so much information in such a short amount of time. As we’re only a few weeks away from release, fans should expect to see much more as the final roster spots are revealed along with the various modes that will be accompanying the game on release day.
The latest Mortal Kombat X stream is scheduled to kick off on Thursday, March 19 at 3 p.m. CST, so fans will definitely want to ensure they check that out. In the meantime, however, stay tuned to Game Rant for more details on the upcoming and utterly gruesome fight title.
What kind of ‘-ality’ do you think NetherRealm is adding to the game? What finishing move would you like to see in the game?
Mortal Kombat X launches on April 14, 2015 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. It was recently delayed into the Summer for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions.
