8:03 AM CST -
Co-creator and Creative Director Ed Boon just tweeted the announcement that the next game's title is Mortal Kombat X.




If we go along with yesterday's Amazon leak it would imply that the game will be available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Windows PC. But we've not yet received a press release confirming this.

And as promised, Ed had more. Here's the Announcement Trailer, which includes an original song "Can't Be Stopped" by Wiz_Khalifa and reveal's the game's release date of 2015.



This isn't gameplay yet, but it looks fairly close to in-engine graphics so it may give you a good idea what is in store. It's also possible it's teasing usable weapons in the stage, hopefully they take the old game's weapon systems with some Injustice style refinements.

There are many questions that remain.

1. Is the "X" pronounced as "Ten" or "Ecks"? I'm going with "Ecks" since it'd be silly to call this "Mortal Kombat Ten" after the last game was simply "Mortal Kombat". Confirmed via Twitter, it's "Ecks".

2. Why is Sub-Zero not a cyborg? He appears to have some cyborg features though, with the eyes glowing like that. Time will tell, we have a long way until 2015 and a lot of information yet to be revealed.

3. How much of that trailer is in-game assets? It looks glorious and hopefully indicative of what the game looks like but it's all CG and not gameplay at all according to Digital Dimension the company who did the CG work for the trailer.

4. Will there actually be stage intractable weapons? Looks possible, time will tell on how much of that is part of the game.

Nice! Finally a confirmation. Was hoping something more than that though like a trailer, hopefully we get one later today.

Man, Ed boon is such a tease. I hope there's more, because I've got blue balls right now.

Well I hope he gives us a trailer or something. We need a trailer!

LOL, he retweeted a guy saying he can't wait any longer after the "link coming" tweet. Boon's seriously teasing us too hard.

I wonder if the trailer will show Scorpion beating the crap out of Sub-Zero again, like most MK9 media did. EDIT: My theory was correct!
June 2nd, 2014 8:24 AM CST - Xenon
Haha Sub-Zero got rekt again. (the music was just godawful)
June 2nd, 2014 8:24 AM CST - Taj Gill
Well then, that trailer was something... Those outfits for both Sub-Zero and Scorpion... AMAZING
June 2nd, 2014 8:25 AM CST - Flying Jinko
That trailer.....wow! Was hoping Subz to win this time though lol.

As per usual, the under-dog gets killed by the NRS favorite, but SUB-ZERO is pretty much konfirmed, so I could give less than a shit if Scorpion wins again (as usual).
June 2nd, 2014 8:27 AM CST - Kzaoo
It's been a while since I've been excited for a game. Although, I'm not surprised to see Subz get shat on by Scorpion again, lel. So hype.
June 2nd, 2014 8:27 AM CST - Gouki
Still fukin up SubZero... -_- lol Like the costumes though. I wonder if that was Bi Han SubZero
June 2nd, 2014 8:27 AM CST - Taj Gill
I was watching it at work, with no sound, Scorpion obviously says GET OVER HERE, correct? And is it the same soundbyte used for the last 10 years, or is it re-recorded? AND THANK GOD FOR HUMAN SUB-ZERO!!! Seriously though, love the outfits for both, makes them look more sinister and assassin like. Basically more Ninja overall.
June 2nd, 2014 8:29 AM CST - Flying Jinko
Loving the design choices overall, Scorpion's double spear being an example can't wait to see more.

He says it when the MK logo shatters into an X like pattern. Not sure how to make out the difference, but it does sound like it used to in the earlier games.

I wonder seeing Scorpion and Sub Zero use their surroundings (Scorp swinging from the branch, and Subz using the branch) means we'll get to use our surroundings in this game like it was in injustice... im thinking so.

Awesome ;D. The trailer is pure win.
June 2nd, 2014 8:37 AM CST - jkbaylor
The hood on Scorpion is so amazing!! Perfect design choice!

Great trailer ! This new MK seems darker, which is excellent for me ! Also, i've seen some MK4 stuff in this trailer : weapons in the background that you can use, the axe of Scorpion... do you think we'll see Jarek, Shinnok and Fujin playable again in MK X ??

As long as Ed is around, Subby will never win.

I'm loving the appearances of these two, especially Sub-Zero's. That mask of his just looks sick. I can't wait to see more for this game as time passes by!
June 2nd, 2014 10:14 AM CST - apoklyps3
Why sub-zero has human form? Well that's simple , ain't it? There are two sub-zeros and as far as I know not both of them got turned into a cyborg.
June 2nd, 2014 10:20 AM CST - poptdp
I just LOL'd when I saw sub zero get owned by scorpion yet again as in all media. especially after all the discussion we've had on this site regarding it. smart play would've been to actually let sub win this time. change it up NRS jeez

1. I say Ecks too, given our recent conversation of FB, and how MK9 reset a lot of stuff in the story. It'll be MK, but not all of the stuff from MK4 and onward may appear, given the HUGE timeline change. 2. The only explanation I have is: When Nightwolf kicked Noob Saibot into the Soulndao in MK9, Bi-Han and Noob split from that 1 body. Ed did say on Twitter, a while ago, that "1 was Noob and the other was Saibot," (to paraphrase Ed), which would imply 2 souls in 1 body (similar to Ermac having 1,000 souls within 1 body). 3. In game assets, I would predict: - X-Ray - Modified costumes - Modified special moves (Scorpion's double spear) Considering that all of it was CG, and not gameplay though, I guess we'll find out at E3. 4. Possibly, but that's another thing that could either be or not be (due to CGI), given that Sub-Zero also swung off of the tree branch.

I loved this trailer i loved their look I lov.......like the music somewhat. Now i just need to know if Kang is in the game then ill be happy as a dog with a bone

@commander the way I see it with the return of shinnok the elder gods may be the reason sub zero is back following mythologies bi Han foiled the fallen gods original plans so the May have personally pulled him out of the soulnado and purified him expelling saibot who can easily be his own character and have sub zero be there improvised champion Also it was confirmed at least by playstation every character will have unique variations to them and that there will be new characters as well

So nice! Sub-Zero is back but just to get killed again. Lol Anyways, by the looks of the trailer, we can possibly say that we might be able to use the environment.
June 2nd, 2014 12:40 PM CST - Commander
@ByrdBrain - That's true too. @Nasty - Scorpion also killed Sub-Zero in the MK9 cinematic trailer. It doesn't really mean anything. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o00-MspCacs It just means that NRS has a favorite, and that favorite is Scorpion.

I know. If I created the game, it'd be A female character killing off a male character in perverted ways. Lol Johnny Cage would mostly be the victim. Lol I'm talking about trailers.
