As many fighting game fans will attest, Mortal Kombat X is without a doubt one of the grimmest, bloodiest, and most addictive titles on the market. With its intuitive controls and fast-paced action, almost any player can pick the title up on the fly, and find themselves spending an entire weekend bringing the pain. On top of all that, NetherRealm Studios has been keeping Mortal Kombat X stocked with fresh content and new characters to master, with the recent release of Predator being most notable.
Since NetherRealm Studios has been overhauling MKX with more updates and DLC than one could shake a stick at, many have been speculating which fighters of the franchise’s past might become a part of the roster. So far, Tanya’s inclusion to the game has been the only instance of a klassic character joining the vicious tournament via DLC, but now, thanks to new screenshots of the fighter’s fatalities and brutalities, it’s been confirmed that the fan-favorite Tremor will officially be added to the cast of Mortal Kombat X.
A while back, the only hint leading us to the presumption of his addition was an image of Tremor’s character render, but as we all know, certain aspects of games and their DLC can sometimes get dropped or changed during the development phases. However, the gruesome shots below definitely confirm that NetherRealm Studios has been done more than simple preliminary work.
As one could expect, all of Tremor’s finishers are rock-related, with one brutality called “Krystal Khaos” causing him to glow green and solidify his opponent into geode-like material just so he can obliterate them into tiny bits of rubble, while another entitled “Rock Head” seemingly does just what the name implies, as a boulder crushes a rival’s skull. The fatalaties are a little bit more imaginative and elaborate, as Tremor’s first one called “Stone Tomb” smashes enemies in between two giant obelisks, and “Stalag-Might” turns his hands into rock-based hammers to ostensibly batter adversaries to death.
Should fans of the incredibly popular fighting game still not have found their preferred character yet, Tremor may be right up their alley. However, with Mortal Kombat X already having a huge cast from which to choose, it would be far-fetched to suggest that there isn’t at least one fighter that gamers haven’t mastered by now. For example, there are a lot of players that would attest to Kung Jin not only being the best selection in the title, but also the easiest to master. Not to mention, should folks be looking to quickly eliminate the kompetition with surprisingly quick and extremely powerful kombos, Jason Voorhees could be the brawler of choice.
Mortal Kombat X is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
