After I played a bunch of 2011’s Mortal Kombat 9, I had wondered where NetherRealm Studios could go next. Mortal Kombat 9 had successfully used through the beloved characters and story from the original trilogy as the base for that game, so it was hard to see where they could go given that the games after the original trilogy were not as well received.
GOG.com is happy to announce that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is the newest addition to the GOG.com family of partners.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today confirmed that Mortal Kombat X, in development by NetherRealm Studios, is scheduled for release worldwide beginning April 14, 2015. The game will be available for the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC.
When Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection was originally released for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network it was plagued with several issues: music & sound bugs, a cropped screen, and online play that barely worked were just some of the issues. And it unfortunately took until mid-December for a patch to finally arrive to fix the most egregious issues. I refused to review the game at all up to that point just because it was so broken that it would have received a 1 Star rating at best at the time. But now with the release of the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection on Steam, I revisited the title on all platforms once again, and was much more satisfied with what I saw.
