Spoilers: IGN Host 25 Minutes of Mortal Kombat X Story Mode

Mortal Kombat X is less than two weeks away - but if that's still too long to wait, IGN have a 25 minute preview of the story mode. Note: The preview is a walkthrough of Chapter 1 and will contain extensive spoilers! Continue at your own risk:


[Related Article: GDC Previews Paint Picture of Mortal Kombat X Story Mode]

Mortal Kombat X: Chapter 1 centres around returning playable kombatant Johnny Cage, and his comrades in the Special Forces: Kenshi & Sonya Blade.

Their mission - join Raiden at the Sky Temple and defend the world from the forces of Shinnok and his demonic Netherrealm hordes. The plot loosely picks up from the epilogue of series do-over Mortal Kombat (2011), and covers the expected territory that was originally the premise for Mortal Kombat 4.

With a storyline spanning 25 years, questions about the relevance and representation of Shinnok's invasion have been frequent. It's difficult to conceive of the fallen elder god Shinnok leaving the saga in its first chapter - but even if that were the case - the MK4 plot is well serviced by the opening episode!

Scorpion & Sub-Zero feature as the initial antagonists of the piece - getting a "hero" entrance that makes beautiful use of the tropes of Scorpion's "get over here" attack. The undead ninja is in his 2011 design, maintaining some semblance of continuity between games, while Sub-Zero appears as the first of an army of revenants controlled by Quan Chi. By the time the fight moves to the Sky Temple, those revenants include other fighters killed in the last game: Sindel, Jax, Stryker, Kabal, Nightwolf & Smoke.

Jax shines as one of the fight opponents. His revenant look amps up the basics of his design, jacking up the classic look of the cyborg arms to become something spikey, menacing and unnatural. With the exception of Sub-Zero; Smoke has undergone the most decisive stylistic change between games. He insists on being called "Enenra" during the fight: a reference to mythological Japanese smoke monsters - which he was revealed to in fact be, in MK2011. Gone is the wispy white hair of the last game, in favour of a dark cowl more in line with his alternate attire. Fortunately, he wasn't the only cult favourite to make a substantial appearance.

DIE WILL YOUNo Loyalty

Defending the Sky Temple beside Raiden is the wind god Fujin. He's a welcome return to the plot that originally introduced him as a boss character in Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero, and a playable fighter in Mortal Kombat 4. If you've been reading the comics, you've already seen Fujin back in action sometimes after this part of the story - but is he playable? The new design offers hope to fans, but it's tough to shake the suspicion that he could held back for later DLC, similarly to Martian Manhunter in Injustice.

Shinnok -- who is confirmed playable -- remains a somewhat unintimidating presence, but bucks MK4 level criticism with a fight sequence that shows moments of brilliance. His upright, effortless defense against punches is a highlight for a character who should feel above the inconveniences of physical exertion. A state he might achieve if he could keep hold of the notorious amulet at the centre of many recent MK games.

If you've seen the Cage Family Trailer, you know Johnny & Sonya eventually make their way to the stand-off with Shinnok. Theories about any dramatic end for our heroes can be dashed. Johnny discovers his inner power and goes toe-to-toe with the fallen elder god, helping secure the amulet so Raiden can suck his nemesis into it. Sonya's left to heal, and we're left to ponder the significance of Shinnok's fate and the presumption of his eventual return. For the full experience - check out the video [embedded above] or wait to play yourself!

Good ol' NRS. No one spoils their own games quite like they do. And I say they are responsible because this isn't a leak IGN has, it's NRS-sourced.

Well, you all got your Tremor now. Can we finally move on?

Where did the "new costume for Smoke" info come? That one isn't new, so I guess his chances for DLC are on par with Sindel or the other non playable revenants. The enenra remark was cool though.

Yeah, I think it's Kitana's first fatality and the other one shown in the trailer was her second fatality

Oh, man.

Twinge of pain in my chest to see Smoke just wearing a very slightly modified version of his MK9 alt. I was still holding out a little hope from the early descriptions that said he was wearing a bit of new stuff, but nope. Not at all. He straight-up looks like Noob in Deception with that black shade, haha

Oh, well. I guess I can rest easy, now. He had a good showing last time, and there's always next time.

Shinnok's got like 50% more Palpatine and 5% Frieza. Love those one-handed blocks. Stylin'!

"She called me Johnny". D'awww....

How is this spoiling the game? You don't have to watch it if you don't want to. And the video of the story just sets te mood. Nothing really spoiled there. Just some extra cameo's.
Even more, that video just showed how much they improved on the story mode, even though MK9's was good. In the stream a while ago, you the sense how it improved. With this video, you really feel just how much more it improved.
I atleast don't mind, because I'm waiting for a Komplete Edition.

Just watched the story mode video. Now looking to the rest of the video's.
But the story so far... Wauw!!

Why Johnny Cage's awesomeness gotta come at the expense of Sonya? God she keeps getting knocked down needing saving.

RE: Tons of New Video on IGN Including all of Chapter 1

Watched the whole story mode video now:

- Fujin HAS to be playable, there is too much detail thrown on him.

- Only the known playable ex-revenants seem to be playable, the others are all slightly modified versions of their older MK9 selves (though there is a glimmer of hope considering Scorpion got his MK9 costume).

- Shinnokh was pretty badass, I'm sure there is a segment of his fight with Johnny that is frame by frame exactly like chosen one Neo against agent Smith in the first Matrix film.

- Being so badass, Shinnokh was imprisoned too soon (3rd battle of story mode and he's already dealt with). It looks like Quan Chi will lead the way the rest of the NR war arc now until the heroes are returned to the good side.

- I liked the quicktime events, but I was missing them on the Shinnokh fight, it felt weird that we got multiple command inputs in the helicopter fight and then none at all in the Shinnokh badass fight.

- Looking forward to play the whole story mode, if the first chapter alone lasts for 25 minutes wil multiple fighting cinematics, the rest must be sooooooo cool!!

Smoke's costume isn't new, sorry Smoke fans. Nor Kabal, Stryker, Nightwolf or Sindel. The Kavern picture that was deemed to be fake by mostly everyone including The Leaker is a setpiece in story mode. What could this mean for Frost? She was included alongside that picture Fujin is a glorious looking badass make him DLC Shinnok looks and sounds great. Good Entrance, Neo dodging, And he's a talker.

Best morning ever.

Story mode is incredible. Though, it does kinda debunk that leaker. Didn't he say the revenants would be fightable and just use their MK9 move sets? Looks like that didn't play out.

Story is fantastic. Fujin looking to be playable if not now via unlock, then certainly as DLC down the road.

Shinnok looking to be the antagonist of the entire game. That intro sequence set him up hardcore.

I can't wait.
