Warner Bros. face stiff competition from fellow category nominees: Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Call of Duty: Ghosts & Watch_Dogs.
The announce trailer is the work of Emmy Award winning effects house Digital Dimension. Although comprised completely of CG animation, initial speculation about the gameplay it implied has turned out to be mostly accurate! The trailer features a soundtrack by Warner Bros. recording artist Wiz Kkalifa.
In July, Variety reported two of the nominated trailers topped YouTube's 2014 Q2 viewership: MK finished #3 with 11 million hits, behind #1 trailer Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Live-action webseries Mortal Kombat: Legacy II enjoyed digital success with a win in last month's Streamy Awards [full story].
