If you’re the least bit squeamish, you may want to cover your eyes — the iconic fighting series is back, along with its wince-inducing collection of finishing moves.
Mortal Kombat X storms onto PS4 this week with eye-popping graphics (in some cases literally), a new style variation system, and a huge roster of fighters. Like its 2011 predecessor, Mortal Kombat X retains many of the elements that gamers fell in love with back during the original run, but with enhanced control and new bone-crunching X-ray attacks. And by enabling players to select between three different styles for each fighter, the already sizable collection of combatants just about triples.
If Mortal Kombat X is a little too graphic for your tastes, consider the retro-inspired Titan Souls. In this ambitious indie project, players only have a single arrow to defeat monstrous bosses and explore a strange and wondrous world.
For a full list of games coming to PlayStation this week, read on. And enjoy The Drop!
