BGS 2014: Ed Boon Talks Fatalities & More in Brazil

True to the old saying: Mortal Kombat X is serving up something borrowed, something new, and a fan-favourite something blue. Music to the ears of fans at Brasil Games Show 2014 where Ed Boon and NetherRealm Studios are continuing to take the MKX message to the globe!

Speaking with Baixak Games; the series Co-Creator/Creative Director offered the tiniest of tantalizing new teasers about what's in store. Watch the full video below:

Finishing moves have been the talk since a new "-Ality" was first alluded to back at E3. While there's still no concrete information, an image emerges with each new discussion. Boon discussed the addition of an enhanced version of a classic fatality type, designed to take advantage of major progress in hardware and graphics engines. There will also be some form of tributes to classic finishers, as well.

Anecdotal accounts from live demos have players choosing from between 6-7 finishers, with Stage Fatalities given favourable odds back in June. Just as key special moves will be shared amongst Character Variations - Ed confirms each style will be able to access all fatalities.

Confronted with the ever contentious issue of Online Modes- Ed offered one of his most emphatic responses: "... Much more robust netcode in Mortal Kombat X!"

It isn't the first time improving online function has been talked up. The team will be taking lessons learned from Mortal Kombat (2011) & Injustice: Gods Among Us to make further improvements. This will be the first Mortal Kombat developed without GameSpy or GFWL, since their closures.

On the fond tradition of secret characters in Mortal Kombat - a drawn out, less than convincing "yes". While Mortal Kombat (2011) included unlockable fighters and skins, the secret aspect was not well served, utilizing a more forthcoming, perfunctory chase and unlock system.

While hidden secrets may have pleased die hard fans everywhere, the BGS host nation was given a little something else to look forward to. In acknowledging Brazil's rampant fandom -- (something Mortal Kombat Online can attest to) -- Ed discussed the possibility of incorporating a fighter or element that gives back to South American fans. Even more amazing - Ed gave local fan-favourite Sub-Zero a rare win in an either/or scenario against Scorpion!

MKX will have more fatalities than any other MK game

Here! I guess that's good news to most of you, but i'd rather have other finishers over more fatalities. We don't need Kung Lao showing 3 different ways of slicing an opponent in half with 3 different fatalities :-/

That's cool and all, but I don't put much importance into that personally. 2 each is good enough for me. Anything more is gravy. I'm guessing it'll be similar to MK9, except maybe 1 additional for some, and a new -ality that they've hinted.

2 Fatalities (3 for the more popular characters)

There won't be a new finisher, the one they've been hinting at is a returning one- most likely brutality.

We are not getting a new "-ality". We are getting a returning "-ality".

RE: MKX will have more fatalities than any other MK game

Most fatalities ever? Well, that is a surprise given the size of the roster. Which seems to be 24.

Quality over quantity is what I want. More finishers seems really cool. But not if they are bland. We already have seen two vertical slice fatalities. That's fine, I just don't wanna see many more. Variety is the word and I want them to be NOT bland. Yup, I'm asking for a lot. I rather have less finishers with quality over more and more which end up being bland.

When you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground.

That's not my concern- i meant in general- a lot of fatalities in previous games have been generic and very similar (Kitana slicing her opponent bodies with her fans in 2 different ways, Kung lao using his hat in 2 different ways to slice his opponent in half, etc)

Ah, I seem to remember them saying something about a "new -ality".

I believe it was here: http://www.mortalkombatonline.com/content/forum/showmessage.cds?id=152576

But I'm guessing that was never confirmed.

Cool News Fatalities are what made MK famous so i say the more the merrier. Im not gonna lie there is a apart of me that wishes they bring back Create a Fatality. They can probably do some amazing things now with there new fatality engine.

RE: MKX will have more fatalities than any other MK game

That is great news in my opinion. I liked fatalities way above any of the other finishers. I hope we see each character use different sets of their powers to do them. The ones that I have seen are really well done because of the more ways to cut the characters and the engine of the game. The camera angles also do a great job making them look more dramatic.

I only ever have done babalities of the top of my head with Noob Saibot in Mortal Kombat Trilogy since it was so easy to win with him and you just had to tap forward about five times and press LP. I do not like any of the other finishers so I prefer more fatalities.

Tell that part of you to keep quiet.

*Shivers* That was probably the most horrendous part of Armageddon. The amount of choices you could pick from were not even fatality-worthy, (mainly the actual killing moves).

At least I managed to find a way to get Ultimate Fatality with twelve moves... it was really lackluster.



To the topic, cool, more finishing moves so I don't have to get stuck watching the same ole' same ole'!

RE: MKX will have more fatalities than any other MK game

Gotta say, I'm intrigued. With the new engine, new system and everything else being used, I wanna see just how far they can push the technology, what limit they hit from adding everything they want to add. From that standpoint, it's going to be very interesting watching how this game unfolds.

From what we've seen and heard thus far, a few years ago, wouldn't have believed any of it possible. It's nice to see the team continue to go above and beyond.

We can do fatalities on them in Mortal Kombat 11?! That is great news! Made my day. Nothing like super news to put you in a happy frame of mind half an hour before the football match.

Create a Fatality was the worse thing this series has ever produced. I never want to see that awful shit again.

Also, 100% sure that Kitana is in, Boon has been dropping hints left and right about her inclusion. So all the haters can kindly you know what.

I am a fan of Kung Lao, but, I just don't see him returning in this game, at least not in the initial roster.

RE: MKX will have more fatalities than any other MK game

Lovely, another thread is turning into a Kitana vs anti-Kitana shitstorm.

Why was she even brought up again? Right, because someone did not agree with another user and decided to sh*t on their favourite character.

And to you AgentK and Thracian_Tsar. A friendly reminder: Quit being so damn hostile.

yours faithfully, a fellow Kitana superfan (you make us look bad).
