Midway offered the folks over at GameSpot a sneak preview of the E3 build of Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. The two-paged hands-on preview touches almost every aspect you would want to know about the game. The preview also reveals that the "new game mode" that the MK Team was promising in place of the Kombat Chess and Puzzle Battle modes was not revealed in the E3 demo.

As if the one-on-one combat didn't offer enough ways to murder your opponent, the team is packing the backgrounds in the game will all manner of deadly elements. Besides having the opportunity to check out newly made-over classic stages such as Goro's Lair from the original MK, the subway from MK3, and the wastelands from MK II, we were able to see the various death traps and weapons that are being tossed into the mix. The old stages seem to be getting some of the cooler updates at the moment; a catapult in the wasteland stage is fatal fun when you're able to launch a foe at a wall. At the same time, some of the familiar hazards from the old stages are getting a nice refresh, such as the train in the subway stage.

In addition to the hands-on, GameSpot also features a video interview with Mortal Kombat co-creator, Ed Boon. Boon details what to expect with Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, Mortal Kombat: Unchained for the Sony PSP and the future direction of the Mortal Kombat franchise.
