Mortal Kombat X launch trailer

Mortal Kombat X launch trailer

Mortal Kombat X will be released next week on PS4, Xbox One and PC, and a nice reminder of that fact here is the game's launch trailer, along with a BTS video!
Update: Added the making of (whoops) and also changed the trailer video file to one that should work better on all types of players (quality is unchanged)

I LOVE "Chop Suey"! They should play another System of the Down song on MKX's next trailer two days from now.

WTF... SoaD doesn't fit at all to MK, srsly why they used it here, it's like made by some amateur on YT who wanted to put fav song over random MK clips. This trailer is bad.

I'm with you. Love SoaD but it's a total mismatch.

Wow, that really didn't work. Worst trailer I've seen in a while.

+5 to respect for SoaD :)

ehhh, yeah...I thought the "fight" trailer matched the SoaD...but this one...ehhh, kind of a miss. Nevertheless, still stoked for this game!

Why have fighting games not moved to physics based games? Were basically playing the same game we were playing 20 years ago.

So getting this... They also need to hurry up and release more movies/series. Btw, I also love SoaD, but I still think that the old trailer with Adema back on PS2 felt much better.

I don't care of SoaD, I love other kind of music, and trailer is nicy to me (at least it's a fun). Music associates with your inmost thoughts and mindset. It may or may not correspond to something. That's probably why you guys think that it doesn't match MK. Fine to me, though ;)

I absolutely agree with You. But still love this MK. Can't wait to try it.

Why haven't they moved to something more advanced already. Another Unreal 3 engine game and its 2015 :(
It would never be able to move to a "physics based game" if its still on that engine for a start.

You guys talk about physics based games.... Anyone have a video of a physics based fighting game ?

With all the fondness I have for SoaD's Chop Suey this trailer is probably the worst GMV crap I've seen. This is the best one - http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6wx4_soad-amv-ch...

Unreal Engine 3 version of Mortal Kombat 9 and the Injustice game both used Nvidia Physx elements.

Are you asking for a completely new 3d engine? NetherRealms has a contract with EPIC Games's Unreal Engine tech, they no longer do in house 3d engine for fighting games.

Does CryTek and EA/DICE have any competing fighting games using their latest and greatest 3d engines?

Maybe you aren't buying or actually buying fighting games when they release and therefore not helping fund the advancement of the technology development because it costs man hours and money...

The other factor is why Microsoft chose to rush out and by default force Sony to rush out the Xbox 360 and PS3 hardware gen with DirectX 9.0 based GPU hardware instead of waiting until 2007 where DirectX 10.1 GPUs would have been available and feasible...because after all if you go back and read up on DX10 hype you will find that it boasted Geometry Shader which was supposed to handle physics on the GPU and would have pushed physics effects to new levels...

Or you could wait the approximate 3 to 4 years it takes to make and build a completely hardware specific 3d engine to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One...which is likely not gonna happen due to devs citing cost woes.

Gameplay is cool... video sequence sucks imo.
