Mortal Kombat X Goro

Warner Bros. announced this morning Mortal Kombat X will be released on April 14, 2015 for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. Those of you looking to rip your opponents from limb to limb will finally get to do so with the power of next-gen graphics. I guess I should quit calling the PS4 and Xbox One next-gen consoles now that they’re available for the world to enjoy. Regardless, it’s exciting stuff!

NetherRealm Studios has slowly released new fighters to the game’s ever growing roster. Kano was the most recent reveal during Gamescom a few weeks ago. However, those of you that pre-order the Mortal Kombat X will get to play as Goro. That’s right folks. The four-armed giant has returned to Mortal Kombat as a playable character. It’s time to pound face with your enormous yellow fists. This is happening.

During E3, we had the pleasure of watching a 20-minute demo featuring some truly brutal fatalities and x-ray moves. Afterward, we walked out of the demo cringing in horror from the death of Sub-zero at the hands of Scorpion. Trust me when I say it was gross, but in a good way.
