Cowboy Erron Black revealed for Mortal Kombat X

Erron Black is the hot new Clint Eastwood-like character revealed in the above trailer for Mortal Kombat X. He's like a cooler gun-slinging version of Stryker, the silly cop character from earlier Mortal Kombat games. So when do we get to see Nightwolf appropriately kill Erron Black? Because that needs to happen stat, you hear me Netherrealm Studios!?

Mortal Kombat X's TV advert channels the schoolyard spirit

Who could forget those special playground moments as a child? Maybe you're shootin' hoops are playing kickball, when you hear some kid scream "FIGHT!" at the top of his lungs. You drop everything immediately, because if you ...

Yup, it's official, Predator will be in Mortal Kombat X

Earlier, we told you that Predator was likely to be included in Mortal Kombat X -- but only if you were willing to pay the extra price for the Kombat Pack. Now, confirmation has come that not only will Predator be included w...

Mortal Kombat X punishes quitters with head-exploding Quitalities

Mortal Kombat X recently showed off an Ermac fatality that is actually pretty dang icky. Do check it out if you're not the squeamish sort. Less visceral -- and, wow, isn't it great when a series is so over the top an explodin...

Xbox Store slip confirms Predator for Mortal Kombat X

I've watched Predator, Predator 2, and Predators in the last week at the behest of people who've felt these were good ideas (the first idea was a fine idea, the subsequent decisions less fine). Predator 2 is a mess and Preda...

Mortal Kombat X has a giant spider and nope nope nope nope nope

Mortal Kombat X has simply gone too far this time. Look, we've put up with Scorpions and Reptiles for decades because they aren't actual scorpions and reptiles. They're just bipedal dudes fixin' to rip someone's spine ou...

Uh, ew: Ermac's Mortal Kombat Fatality is disgusting and visceral

Congratulations, Mortal Kombat X. I didn't expect to be briefly surprised and grossed out by a Fatality this side of Y2K and JNCO jeans, but you've done it. This is pretty gnarly. Look at all that viscera. I'm calling PETIO (people for the ethical treatment of inner organs: let's keep our insides inside). It's even better in enormous GIF form.

Warner Bros. Interactive has just confirmed that Jason Voorhees, classic Friday the 13th horror icon, is in Mortal Kombat X as DLC. You'll be able to buy the Kombat Pack at launch for $30, which allows access to four characters, including Jason.

The publisher hints that the rest of the pack will include two "classic" characters, as well as one other "guest" character.  The Predator, perhaps? Hey, that "Komplete Edition" down the line is sounding pretty sweet right about now.

Mortal Kombat X doesn't lose any brutality in its mobile version

Just because it's running on devices that aren't as powerful as PC or consoles, doesn't mean that Mortal Kombat X tones down the violence for its mobile version. No, judging by this gameplay video, all the skull-crunchi...

Mortal Kombat X brings back some familiar faces for Story Mode photo
Mortal Kombat X brings back some familiar faces for Story Mode
by Alessandro Fillari

It's been less than a year since its reveal, and we're already rapidly approaching the release of Mortal Kombat X. After its predecessor essentially rebooted the franchise with a return to 2D-style combat, many fans got a newfound love for the series. And though Mortal Kombat (2011) took some liberties with the lore, as it was both a reboot and sequel simultaneously, it left off in a place that had fans anxious to see what could happen next. Lucky for you, Destructoid just got a taste of what's in store.

During GDC week, Warner Bros. Interactive held a special hands-on session with the first chapter of Story Mode, along with a sampling of the versus mode and upcoming mobile game app. Though I've played quite a bit of this series in my time, I knew I could use some help discussing the franchise's lore and history. So I decided to bring along Dtoid's resident Mortal Kombat expert Abel Girmay, who's already played quite a bit of MKX, for a back-and-forth discussion about the game and how Johnny Cage has still got the stuff.

Brutalities revealed for Mortal Kombat X

Brutalities are back in Mortal Kombat X, and there will be "well over 100" according to series creator Ed Boon, a fact that makes me wonder just how many characters the game will have. Originally, brutalities were long ...
