Mortal Kombat X Story, Exclusive Characters and More Explained by Ed Boon

Ed Boon, the director of the upcoming title Mortal Kombat X has shared some new information about the game in an interview with IGN.

First of all, he talked about the game’s story that is going to take place 25 years after the events of previous entry as the game follows the rise and fall of Kotal Khan.

A lot of the new characters are those that came into power after MK9. Kotal Khan is one of them. He was one of the rulers of Outworld during that 25 year period, and the story mode basically follows his rise and fall. D’vorrah works with him, but there’s twists there. I won’t give away the story, but a lot of these characters come in and out of power over the course of the story.

In addition to game’s story, Ed Boon also confirmed that there will be console exclusive characters coming to Mortal Kombat X post release, which is becoming a trend nowadays.

In the end, he teased that there is going to be a “New-atilty” added to the game, which developers will reveal to the public really soon. He said:

There’s a New-ality that we’re going to reveal soon. So yeah. That’ll be fun.

Mortal Kombat X is the latest entry in the popular series and we will see how it does when it releases for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC sometime next year.
