Mortal Kombat 1 will offer a completely new plot in which there will be many interesting points

Mortal Kombat 1 will become a kind of rebooting the franchise, which means that there will be many differences in the plot and characters. During the San Diego Comic-Con 2023 producers commented on these changes. According to Ed Bun, the restart will allow the team of the story of the game in a completely different direction that differs from the usual one, using the elements that have already met players in the past.

After making a decision that we want to restart the game, a desire came to do something new. In truth, we looked at the whole wonderful basis that we had before. And then, discussing the details, we came to the conclusion that we need to take that basis, but at the same time give a story from the other side to surprise the players and breathe in it something new. Thus, we were able to beat the history of Sab Ziro, his relationship with Scorpio, the history of Milina’s origin, her relationship with China and Sindel – it was really interesting to make all these changes and give them a slightly different direction.

However, according to Dominic Chanchiolo, the head of the plot department of Netherrealm Studios, the players will still find in the game the details that have already become familiar to them, which have always played an important role in the plot, such as the topic of confrontation between Scorpio and Saba Ziro.

There are hints of what happened before: between Scorpio and Saba Ziro, the confrontation is invariably, but now they are not deadly enemies who are striving to kill each other. Now they are brothers, and this is a fraternal conflict. This is an example of how we change characters, relationships and the whole game. At the same time, Li Kan and Raden in the literal sense of the word changed places. Li Kang – God, and Raden is an ordinary person, and it’s great. For me, this is one of the main features of the plot of the game.

Commenting on the game capabilities on the consoles of a new generation, Tiago Gomez, art director, noted that now the studio "much more opportunities for demonstrating various small details", For example, traces of sutures on Lee May’s costume.

In conclusion, speaking of the new plot of Mortal Kombat, Bun noted that the game will be " very impressive single game". Unfortunately, the developer did not provide any information about it, but, according to him, something awaits us "completely new and very exciting".

The release of Mortal Kombat 1 is scheduled for September 19 of this year, the game will be available for PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S and Nintendo Switch.
