Mortal Kombat X: Next Trailer
The latest Mortal Kombat X gives us a peak at some of the innovations coming to the latest installment of the long-running series.
One of the key points is the Factions system. The faction system adds another level of community to the online experience. Choose between the Black Dragon, Lin Kuei, White Lotus, Special Forces or the Brotherhood of Shadow. From there on in, everything you do in Mortal Kombat X will affect your faction.
Each week sees a new Faction War, where factions compete to be crowned the victor.
There's also a ranking system within your chosen faction, giving you special abilities and rewards as you progress.
To add another twist, for a random 24 hour period each week, the whole faction system can be invaded by a more powerful realm, forcing factions to fight a common enemy.
According to the developers, the kombat and feel will be pure Mortal Kombat, but the extra sizzle will add to fans' enjoyment.
Mortal Kombat X is due on the 14th of April 2015 for PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4
