MKX GAMEPLAY INFORMATION THREAD
06/10/2014 12:33 AM EST

CHARACTER INTROS:

There are specific character intros for every matchup, which means more than 600 different variations given how being player 1 or 2 affects them (confirmed by Boon and seen on Cassie vs. D’Vorah and D’Vorah vs. Cassie). Mirror matches are covered too.

SCENARIO INTERACTIONS:

You can interact with multiple scenario elements, which will be highlighted when you get close to them. Some of these interactions include:

- Throwing an element, like a bucket, a branch, a floating corpse or an old lady (yep, you can throw an old lady flying towards your opponent).

- Performing an special attack with a tree branch or using a crane to propulsate towards your opponent.

- Using certain elements like the scenario borders, a stump or even a giant tiger to jump higher.

There are a lot of elements you can use and it seems you will have to learn about each different scenario and how to use its elements on the fight.


STAMINA:

There is a stamina bar under your health bar. This bar is used to dash and run and you will have to carefully administrate it if you want to be able to dash out of a bad situation or use it to continue some combos.

As a personal note, I like all the micromanagement on this game given how you need to pay attention to the scenario, your stamina and the power bars and carefully plan with them.

BLOCK BUTTON:

The block button is making a return.

THROWS:

Apparently characters now have the ability to combo after throws, so you will have to be carefully with blocking too much on the same place as the punishment is greater this time.

X-RAY BAR:

The X-Ray bar is making a return too and works like the previous iteration (enhanced move, combo breaker and X-Ray move).




COMBAT STYLES:

Each character now has the option to choose between 3 different playstyles before the fight. Every characters have a few standard special moves that they will keep but then each style will give new ones, which means you have to choose which ones are better for your strategy as you can’t use the powers you renounce to.

Right now the combat styles are the following:

Scorpion:

- Ninjutsu: Adds unique attacks utilizing dual swords. (2 swords will appear on Scorpion’s back.)

- Hellfire: Adds Hell Ball, Demon Fire and and Flame Aura special moves. (Scorpion’s arms will glow with fire.)

- Inferno: Adds the ability to summon a demonic minion (seen on gameplay: a grab opening a portal under your opponent’s feet, a diagonal attack from above and another attack from behind). (A small skull amulet will be added to Scorpion’s belt.)


Sub-Zero:

- Cryomancer: Adds the ability to summon ice weapons (seen on gamplay: sword attacks, daggers combo and a hammer attack). (Sub-Zero’s arms look frozen.)

- Unbreakable: Adds frozen aura and barrier of frost. (Sub-Zero’s mask skin will resemble the cryo-mask and will glow blueis white.)

- Grandmaster: Adds ice clone that can be thrown or used as a shield. (Sub-Zero will get a second emblem on his chest.)


Cassie Cage:

- Hollywood: Adds air akimbo and nuts kracker (note: yes!!!). (Adds sunglasses.)

- Brawler: Adds air power slam and take down. (Her hands glow.)

- Spec Ops: Adds air assault and the american way. (Adds a microphone headpiece.)


D’Vorah:

- Brood Mother: Adds krawler and bug blast. (Removes the hood.)

- Swarm Queen: Adds vortex swarm and wasp grenade. (Insects fly around her.)

- Venomous: Adds bug burst and ovipositor based attacks poison the opponent. (Venoms pours from her body.)


Ferra/Torr:

- Ruthless: Adds pain and gain ability which increases Torr’s damage output.

- Vicious: Adds boss toss, little kutter and increased Ferra damage.

- Lackey: An enhanced Torr fights solo as Ferra watches from the sidelines. (Ferra will be running like when she’s knocked out, but this doesn’t change the X-Ray or the Fatality.)


Kotal Kahn:

- Blood god: Adds crystal, obsidian and blood totems.

- War god: Adds Macuahuitl based special powers. (This is a 2 handed aztec style weapon.)

- Sun god: Adds sun god choke and soul scorch. (The body paint glows yellow.)




X-RAY LIST:

Scorpion:

Scorpion holds a stance with flames on his hands and when released he throws himself like a torpedo, M. Bison style, engulfed in flames. On impact the sequence starts: He hits his opponent's jaw with his knee, producing a first X-Ray look, sending him into the air and then throws 2 spears at him, one hitting the chest and the other the head with a new X-Ray sequence and pulls the chains so the body smashes the ground and we can see how this breaks the bones on his neck.

Sub-Zero:

Sub-Zero freezes himself waiting to be hit (this is a parry move). Once hit, the opponent will be frozen for a moment and then we will see on X-Ray mode how Sub-Zero takes his entrails, then he freezes them to form a stalagmite and then uses it to pierce his enemy's eye with great force as we're shown the internal damage on the victim's head.

D’Vorah:

D'Vorah flashes (very fast starting animation, hard to see what happens exactly) and on hit initiates the sequence. She sends a swarm that makes the opponent fly, then she herself flies to take position over him, from his back and uses her insect limbs to impale first the back and then the head from behind, with the tip reachen the mouth and X-Rays showing it. She takes impulse using those 2 points as support and landing on his back shattering multiple bones before releasing him and letting it fall to the ground.

Ferra/Torr:

Torr charges agitating his arms and on hit starts the sequence. Grabs the target and easily smashes his head against the floor as we can see how the skull gets serious damage. He then puts the body in front of him and punches the torso, shatering his ribs and sending it flying so then Ferra can climb over Torr's back and jump charging against the flying opponent, using her hand blades to pierce his head and eyes with more X-Ray showing the injuries.

Cassie Cage:

Not shown yet.

Kotal Kahn:

A burst of light from the ground impacts the opponent starting the animation. Kotal Kahn then charges forward with a flaming knife and stabs the target's throat showing us the internal effect as the knife completly impales the neck. He then uses the the knife to twist his neck, causing more internal damage and finishes throwing his knee against the face of his kneeled opponent for a third X-Ray sequence.





FATALITY LIST:

Scorpion:

Throws a fireball oppening a hole on his opponent chest, then the heart is seen clinging on the hole. Scorpion then uses a sword to cut half of the opponent’s face causing serious damage to brain functions as seen by the opponent not controlling his tongue.

Sub-Zero:

Freezes the opponent’s chest and then uses a hand palm strike to remove the frozen flesh leaving the spine, which he then uses his hands to tear, and then helds him over his head and rips his torso.

D’Vorah:

Summons a swarm and makes it go through his opponent tearing multiple holes on his flesh. Then commands the swarm to eat the flesh on his head, the skull falls to the ground and D’Vorah smash it with her foot.

Ferra/Torr:

As Torr helds the enemy’s arms, Ferra slices his head and climbs to his back, letting the blades fall with her weight, slicing him so that Torr can easily separate his body in 2 pieces vertically.

Cassie Cage:

Shoots both knees of her target and then shoot his head. Cassie proceeds to walk closer to him and puts her chewing gum on the bullet’s hole which is inflated by the blood and explodes.

Kotal Kahn:

Uses a ritual knife to perform an horizontal cut on the opponent’s chest, then introduces his hands and takes the heart, which he then squashes letting the blood fall over his face.

Awesome thread, I've been wanting something like this for awhile now, all these videos left to right...more gameplay and stuff.

You could however, make a tidbit about what each interviews explains.

Awesome post.

I am wondering if there is footage of scorpions full fatality? Ive heard Boon speak about the ending, but every video I have seen it cuts off before he actually .... cuts off his face.

I think it is time to add motaro back in the new mk and not that 2legged sh*t, dont make him playable just a boss give him all the specials u want but in the case of x rays he shouldnt have one but if a player tries to x ray him he counters them but not a set counter make it individual for each character. For example when sub zero tries to grab his internal organ motaro stops him hand and gives him a head but (like he did in previous game adding insult) and the head but will show in xray

The stamina seems to regen after 2.5-3 seconds afternoon combat sequence has been initiated from what I can tell from the videos.

A few questions for those that may know gameplay details and are not focused on shitty guest characters and how sexy the chicks are in this game:



1. is there projectile collision in this game or do they pass right through each other like other MK games (retarded)?

2. If i buy the edition with the Kombat pack does this mean I get ALL future DLC characters free/discounted/ or do I have to buy a second Kombat pack at full price to get more characters at a later date?

3. Have they (NRS) stated how focused on balancing the game they are or will it end up like MK9 (A broken POS)?

Whoever runs these sticky threads should probably keep them updated. Otherwise what's the point of sticking up 8 month old info.

Ethereal, ravenous, piercing. It's Mileena bitch.

Yeah that's my fault as originally I had some personal stuff that didn't let me give the OP enough time and at this point the gameplay grew so much that it's literally impossible to keep all of it on a single post and that's why I abandoned it.

It was originally meant to keep players informed about the initial new features as everyone was guessing about the new mechanics and thinking variations were alternate costumes, so it was useful back when the game was announced at first, but not anymore so I'm ok with it being unsticked and I apologize for not putting too much attention on it lately.
