Mortal Kombat X "launches players into a persistent online contest"

Mortal Kombat X “launches players into a persistent online contest”, Warner Bros. has revealed.

The game has also been confirmed to be releasing on both next and last-gen formats

The story is too old to be commented.

I really hope this game has good netcode.

It won't. The trailer and promotion already screams "downgrade" compared to the last game. You have garbage music promoting the game, poor CGI animation (hate to see how it is in-game), and it will likely have gimmicks from injustice crammed into it.

the CGI was "poor" because it tried to represent what they want the game to be like, not because they can't do better.

Also I think the persistent online thing could potentially be a great feature

Yes, because you can tell how good a game's netcode will be just by watching a CG trailer. Your comment has nothing to do with the comment you are replying to.

Suddenly the trailer music and CGI affects a game's netcode.

Oh yeah man. MK9 had terrible net code. But still, I had over 1200 wins and 200 losses ooh yeah.

Pray you don't run into me.

Online only??.....I'll pass

The year is 2014 and I think we can count on our internet connections to not suddenly disappear overnight.

Persistent online features have done wonders for games like Dark Souls or Starcraft 2, and I'm sure it'll be great for a very competitive game like MKX. I'm convinced this can bring new life to the franchise

You may be able to trust your internet connection but not everyone can.

Timesplitter141451d ago

I seriously doubt it will be online-only either way. You can still play games like Dark Souls when you're offline

lnfiniteLoop1451d ago (Edited 1451d ago )

hope it will have offline single and offline two player as well… if not that will be the deal breaker for me and possibly others… personally I thought the trailer looked very good and if they got the game to work like that the way the camera changed angles, I thought wow that would be good...

of course it will have offline modes man. its a fighting game.
