MAXIM Russia and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment earlier today (March 26) revealed a new official gameplay trailer for Mortal Kombat X. The Official Shaolin Trailer is available in the player below.
The new video spotlights returning franchise characters Kung Lao and Liu Kang; along with the series newcomer Kung Jin, who I imagine is among the new generation of characters and is probably related to Kung Lao. Liu Kang was already previously revealed because as a playable Kombatant because the full details of the Kombat Pack Season Pass listed an alternate skin for the character.
The trailer also provides a lot more insight into the upcoming story for Mortal Kombat X. It seems the warriors for Earthrealm who were killed in the last game have been revived as undead revenants who have fallen under the control of the Elder God, Shinnok. Raiden holds great regret on the souls of the heroes falling to the evil of NetherRealm. Kung Jin, who favors a bow and arrow over Kung Lao’s bladed hat, looks to be an aggressive smart aleck.
Mortal Kombat X is due out on April 14 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions hit the shelves on June 30. Fair warning for viewers. The new trailer is very bloody, gory and violent. It is very over-the-top, CG animated violence, but still click at your own risk.
