During a recent IGN E3 livestream, Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon showed off some new gameplay footage from the latest entry in the series, Mortal Kombat X.
The footage shows fights between D’Vorah, a winged female fighter with the ability to control insects, and Cassie Cage, the daughter of Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade; Aztec warrior Kotal Kahn and Ferra & Torr, a combo of a little girl riding on a giant warriors back; Sub-Zero and Scorpion, and finally cassie Cage and Ferra & Torr.
During the fights you see the characters making use of the environment to give them an advantage, just like in Injustice: Gods Among Us. Examples include jumping off posts, grabbing a dead body out of the ocean to use as a weapon, and swinging off a branch for extra momentum.
Mortal Kombat X is in development for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC, and is set to launch in 2015.
