Gamespot Posts Kratos Gameplay Trailer!

03/23/2011 :: Posted at 11:21 AM by ~Crow~

Following months of speculation, God of War's famed hero Kratos was confirmed as a guest character for the Playstation 3 version of Mortal Kombat at the 2010 VGAs. A few months later, we are now treated to the first high quality footage of this anti-hero in action.

Gamespot has released a gameplay trailer showcasing many of Kratos' special moves and general gameplay style. True to rumors, Kratos possesses a large variety of weapons harkening his days from the God of War series. Unlike other characters in the game, he fights with a weapon out at all times as he holds his dual Blades of Exile during general combat. He is seen using them for some jabs into Ermac's (who seems to be in an alternate costume) ribs before hurling him across the arena floor. Kratos also makes use of the Bow of Apollo, firing several flaming arrows. He still has the decapitated Head of Helios which he uses to temporarily stun enemies to gain a free hit. He also has a fiery dash move that slides under the opponent.

Kratos also seems to have a unique gameplay mechanic borrowed from his home series, as he uses a QTE (quick time event) which calls for players to press buttons within a certain time limit to further perform maneuvers, presumably resulting in higher damage if successfully executed. His X-ray move is shown to be a combination of weapon strikes beginning with a hooking slide, continuing with a blow to the ribs with his blades before a powerful strike to the skull with his Nemean Cestus. Only a portion of his fatality was shown, as he was jabbing his blades into Sindel.
