Here is a list of every fatality code in Mortal Kombat X for both Xbox One and PS4. Keep this saved for Tuesday!
Mortal Kombat has always been my favorite fighting game series, it’s not your hardcore fighting game like Street Fighter. Mortal Kombat was always that fighting game that you could pick up and play with almost no experience and have crazy fun with it. Mortal Kombat 9 was a huge step forward for the series with the gameplay improvements which saw the series move to a 2.5d style. MK9 also boasted by far the best story mode in a fighting game. I’m happy to say Mortal Kombat X is even better!
First of all I have to applaud just the sheer amount of kontent (see what I did there?) as well as the replay value you will get with Mortal Kombat X. The content includes, living towers, traditional towers, story mode, fraction wars, test your might and luck minigames, and the Krypt were you can spend your hard earned koins on extras like fatality codes, alt costumes, concept art, brutalities and much more!
Living towers is similar to a classic tower, were you move up a tower after beating other combatants until you reach the final boss although there isn’t a final boss in living towers. In living towers there are three different towers, one which is updated hourly, daily, and premier which is longer than a day. Each tower has “dragon challenges” that rewards you with koins if you complete them. Challenges range from not using an X-Ray attack and win to win with over 30% of health left.
Each tower also contains modifiers that are added to all tower battles. Modifiers include Rain using his bubble attack move to damage fighters, health lowers throughout a fight, tilting arena’s, Smoke’s smoke attack, or a mix bag of all kinds of modifiers. There are of course a lot more modifiers with those few just being an example. Upon completing any of the three towers you will be given a final score depending on a few variables like how long was taken to complete the tower, amount of fatalities/brutalities executed, flawless victories, and more.
With the enhanced graphics from MK9 to MKX with the PS4/Xbox One, you now get the most brutally realistic fatalities to date. On the subject of fatalities, easy fatalities have been added to the game for the first time ever which only requires two simple button commands to execute a fatality. This has been done to help people who can’t execute fatalities, so everyone can enjoy the gruesomeness! You can only do easy fatalities if you have an easy fatality koin which you can earn throughout the game. Brutalities which first appeared in UMK3 also make there long awaited return to the franchise after almost 20 years!
The Krypt has even been revamped, before all you did in the Krypt was click to open tombstones up using koins which got you a reward. Now it’s almost like a small adventure as you have to unlock doors to get in new areas were other tombstones are located. These doors can only be opened using certain items that can be found inside the Krypt. There are also monsters and beasts hiding in the Krypt waiting to attack you, so be prepared as killing these enemies gets you a nice koin bonus. The new Krypt is a small but great addition to Mortal Kombat, and gives the Krypt some more depth rather than being just click and get your reward.
Added to the gameplay with Mortal Kombat X is character variations. When choosing a character in MKX you have a choice of three different variations, each variation comes with its own unique abilities. For example, my favorite character in MKX is Erron Black, and his three variations are Gunslinger, Outlaw, and Marksman. With Gunslinger you gain a standoff stance and revolver tricks shots, with outlaw you get a unique Tarkatan arm blade attacks, and finally with Marksman you gain special long rifle attacks. Perfecting each character variation will take time because with different variations comes totally different special moves and inputs for combos so essentially it’s kind of like having three different characters with just one character.
Also new to Mortal Kombat is stage interactions which was introduced in Netherrealm Studio’s Injustice: Gods Among Us. Stage interactions allows players to use parts of the stages environment to their advantage. The parts that are interactive will be glowing, and by pressing the R1/RB button near the glowing object it will cause the player to interact with the object. These interactions include jumping off objects to get away from an opponent, swinging off branches, throwing objects including an old lady (seriously) it’s just a shame Mortal Kombat X didn’t also include the stage transitions from Injustice too or Stage Fatalities which were included in MK9. The disappointment with arena’s doesn’t end just there as there are only 13 arenas in Mortal Kombat X which is much less than Mortal Kombat 9’s 25 arenas.
Mortal Kombat X’s story mode is similar to Mortal Kombat 9’s story mode. You watch a cutscene and then you have a fight, watch a cutscene and then a fight, and so on. There are some new additions to the story mode though, Quick-Time Events take place during cutscenes which are pointless as failing QTE’s doesn’t have any effect at all other than a slightly altered scene, there are no game overs which is kind of a shame as it would have been cool to have “death scenes” for failing a QTE similar to Resident Evil 4. There are 12 chapters in story mode, and shouldn’t take more than 5 hours to complete.
The Final Verdict
Mortal Kombat X is another solid entry into the Mortal Kombat series, I thought it would be hard to top Mortal Kombat 9 but Neatherrealm Studio’s proved me wrong with this excellent game. The story mode is good, the amount of content will keep you coming back for months, the finishing moves are as brutal as ever! It’s everything I wanted Mortal Kombat X to be and then some. If you are a fan of Mortal Kombat then this is the easiest purchase of the year for you, if you aren’t a fan of fighting games then I’d still recommend it because of how fun the game is. To sum this all up… Go buy Mortal Kombat X on Tuesday you won’t be disappointed.
