Mortal Kombat X Release Date & Pre-Order Announcement!

It's official: Mortal Kombat X is coming to home systems April 14, 2015! The Tuesday launch will see the worldwide release reach PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 & PC. [Related Article: MOREtal Monday: Mortal Kombat X Box Art]

The long awaited release date was announced today with an even bigger bombshell attached - pre-orders will receive bonus playable DLC character: Goro! Take a closer look at the grizzled four-armed Shokan by clicking the image below:

Introduced in the original Mortal Kombat as a mascot sub-boss -- Goro is a 2000 year old half-man, half-dragon powerhouse from the realm of Outworld. For nine consecutive tournaments he reigned as Mortal Kombat Champion, before being dethroned by the fighting monk Liu Kang.

Goro is still well remembered within gaming circles for his intimidating rule over the original arcade cabinet. The hulking digitized character was achieved through stop-motion animation and articulated models. John Tobias explained in an interview with Mortal Kombat Online, "We wanted to have a brutish character as our boss and I remember thinking of the old Ray Harryhausen films like Jason and The Argonauts and their use of stop-motion animation as being the perfect remedy."

The original model was exhumed from series co-creator Ed Boon's basement in 2013 [full story], when the Chicago area succumbed to storm flooding. The same maquette appeared in a series of Goro Twitter teasers leading up to the recent announcement:

The download bonus will be Goro's first player controlled appearance since 2006's Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. He's been a rare inclusion in the main roster without cheat or hack options -- a Nintendo exclusive for Deception (2005), and part of the all-in gimmick of Mortal Kombat Trilogy (1996).

MK4 memorably brought Goro back to prominence as the sub-boss of that game. It is not presently known if Goro exists only as downloadable content, or will have another in-game role of a different kind.

Story implications remain wide open. Mortal Kombat X will boast a 25 year timeline, which we know will include the rise and fall of new Outworld Emperor: Kotal Kahn. Could the Shokan Prince Goro be one of several competing powers in the wake of Shao Kahn's death? It is unknown how pivotal the Outworld Throne is to the overarching story, or who the new arch-villain or boss will be.

Goro joins other klassic characters confirmed for an MKX return: Kano, Raiden & Scorpion. Cassie Cage leads the next generation of familiar fighters, with father Johnny Cage confirmed to be in the game, in some capacity.

Release date is also 4-14-15



Does that mean Goro will be the first DLC character, and those who pre-order get early access?

Yay release date!

And holy fuck Goro looks MASSIVE. This makes me wonder if he'll be ridiculously OP Goro or balanced character.

RE: So GORO is a pre-order exclusive character!

I, in general hate pre-order DLC but I do not think this is the time or the place to bring up that particular discussion.

On Goro, he looks more ruthless while keeping his personage intact. I think it looks great. Waiting now for a gameplay trailer to see him in action. Would be interesting to see how big he is in the game and if he has some special bonuses.

Does Goro have a claim to the throne of Outworld?

RE: So GORO is a pre-order exclusive character!

Well I already have it preordered, been waiting to see what the bonus would be. Now wondering if/when they will release contents of the collectors edition. And glad we finally have a date now. Its still coming out in a crowded Spring( because everything got pushed back)
Goro looks great. I would also assume, he will be the firs DLC kharacter

As Mr. Sloan always says, there is no "I" in team, but there is an "I" in pie. And there's an "I" in meat pie. Anagram of meat is team... I don't know what he's talking about.

So Boon definitely hints at characters on his twitter, Kano and now Goro...

I wonder what that means for Reptile, Kitana and Ermac, he seems to purposely retweet/mention those 3 characters the most, often back to back...

Pre-ordering adds no additional cost...

It is a great way for games to secure sales, I wholeheartedly agree with the move from a fan and a business standpoint.

And out comes the pre-order bait.

Still, I could think of worse returning characters than Goro. I'll have to see more of the cast to make a call on whether to pre-order or wait for the Komplete Edition.

Now, release the gameplay/variation video. :D

RE: So GORO is a pre-order exclusive character!

What's most interesting is the wording: "Pre-order now to FIGHT AS Goro". This makes me think that he'll already be in the game as a boss character, but that the DLC is just making him playable. I could be wrong though.

Either way, he's looking epic. Never seen him look so awesomely ominous!

Someone else would have to do it for me like they did last time

If only I was able to be good at not being bad at making sigs.

I'd be excited... but i can't see. This image has too much in shadow, perhaps the monitor i'm using needs adjusting but i can't do that i'm on a public use computer.
