Mortal Kombat X will launch in 2015 for Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, Warner Bros. and developer NetherRealm have announced

"Mortal Kombat has always been about over-the-top, visceral fighting and with Mortal Kombat X we wanted to utilise the power of new-gen consoles to give players our most intense game yet," said Ed Boon, creative director, NetherRealm Studios. "The team has worked hard to make sure Mortal Kombat X delivers everything fans expect along with new characters, new game modes and an all new graphics engine."

A debut trailer has been released, showing off what NetherRealm promises to be "unparalleled, cinematic presentation with dynamic gameplay".

Mortal Kombat X claims to offer a new fully-connected experience that launches players into a persistent online contest where every fight matters in a global battle for supremacy. Players will have the ability to choose from multiple variations of each character impacting both strategy and fighting style.

In addition, an original story will showcase characters including Scorpion and Sub-Zero, while introducing new challengers that represent the forces of good and evil.

The game will make its first public appearance at E3 next week.

MKX is the first title in the Mortal Kombat series since 2011's unnumbered Mortal Kombat.
