If the recent gameplay trailer has left you thirsty for more Mortal Kombat 1, then the launch of the video released today should be especially rewarding for you. Around seven minutes of gameplay are shown.
After during the Summer Game Fest opening show a four Minute longer Gameplay-Trailer “Mortal Kombat 1” was shown, followed by a gameplay presentation lasting around seven minutes, which can be started on the IGN YouTube channel and is also available for viewing below these lines.
In addition, the co-creator Ed Boon spoke up again and emphasized that the new game is more a reboot than a remake. So the NetherRealm team wanted to include important existing characters but tell a brand new story.
The canon ending of 2019’s Mortal Kombat 11 was a perfect stepping stone as the main character was able to gain influence over the universe. “And then,” Boon says, “of course something goes wrong.” The result will be familiar characters who could be in very different circumstances.
Classic villains return
And who is the baddest villain? Boon did point out that “a number” of classic Mortal Kombat adversaries will return in some form. But he didn’t want to reveal who the big bad is. “Just like the heroes, the villains will start out very differently…they’ll take different paths and have different relationships with each other,” Boon says.
Boon also took the opportunity to comment positively on the PS5 generation. She was “obviously insanely efficient”. And then there’s the fast SSD. “We can load these crazy detailed backgrounds that used to take so long to load,” the co-creator continues.
