Mortal Kombat X is a fighting game that runs on Unreal Engine 3. It was developed by NetherRealm Studios for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, and will be released on April 14, 2015. The game will also arrive on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms later in 2015, with those versions developed by High Voltage Software.

In case you haven't picked up the game yet, read Bryan Dawson’s in-depth review of Mortal Kombat X. Also known as DrDogg in the competitive Mortal Kombat scene, not only did Bryan write the official strategy guides for different Mortal Kombat games, but he also placed high at the Evolution Fighting Game Championships and many other regional and national tournaments for MK and various fighting games.

Mortal Kombat X Tips

  • Spend time in the Mortal Kombat X Training Mode. Doing this will help players adjust to the various characters before they venture into the game's multi-player.
  • Training mode is also required in order to unlock the Mortal Kombat X story mode, so it's basically mandatory.
  • Each character has three variants that greatly alter their fighting styles. Make sure you check out each variant before selecting a character. We have them listed below.
  • In addition to your standard meter in MKX, there's also a stamina meter that controls things like Breakers and running. Keep an eye on these so you know what moves you can do and when.
  • Brutalities require that players accomplish certain tasks during the match. Only then will they become available for use
  • Even if you're not a fan of some of the new characters, make sure to spend some time playing as them in order to understand their strengths and weaknesses.

    Mortal Kombat X manages to bring in a balanced way everything that is needed for a successful formula: good quality graphics, very well produced sound, balanced fighter cast and, above all, a gameplay that has evolved over the years and is now over Solid than ever. Fighting games are often crueler to newcomers as they require good training. Fortunately, in the learning curve of Mortal Kombat X, if you do not have much experience, you will learn quickly. Mortal Kombat X shows that even after more than twenty years there is still time to learn from the mistakes and successes of the past. Many of the game's ideas vale a pena comprar um ps4 are not original, but their near-perfect execution deserves recognition. Some of the highlights are for story mode and for live towers that now score points, increasing the players' competitiveness. The netcode is not yet perfect, but now it's more vale a pena comprar um ps4 robust and allows for epic combat over the internet, of course, if you have a stable connection and lucky enough to find another player like that. The biggest vale a pena comprar um ps4 disappointment is due to the PC version and its numerous technical problems, something that has not happened on the consoles, fortunately. The hype around that vale a pena comprar um ps4 game was great and has increased a lot in the last month with almost daily news about the secrets of adventure. Fortunately, he survived the enormous expectation vale a pena comprar um ps4 he had created and succeeded in supplying most of them, which is not always the case - see The Order: 1886, who promised a lot and showed little. From the end of the era of the arcades, the world was asking for a more competitive fighting game in the series and finally it arrived. Mortal Kombat X is the best Mortal Kombat ever made and without doubt one of the best fighting games ever developed.
