Mortal Kombat X ("X" pronounced "Ex" not "Ten") is an upcoming fighting game currently in development by NetherRealm Studios. It is the tenth main title in the Mortal Kombat series, with a release scheduled for 2015. The game is being developed for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and is expected to be ported to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 by a third party.
Like previous entries in the series, Mortal Kombat X is a fighting game in which two players fight against each other using a variety of attacks, special moves, and gruesome Fatalities. The energy meter, first introduced in the previous Mortal Kombat game, once again allows players to perform techniques such as X-Ray moves, with some refinements made to the system. Similar to NetherRealm Studios' previous title, Injustice: Gods Among Us, fighters can now interact with the environment, bouncing off areas to reposition themselves or using parts of the environment as weapons. Each fighter now has three different variations, each featuring a different set of moves they can use during the match. For example, Scorpion can use the Ninjutsu variation, in which he wields dual swords, or the Hellfire variation, which relies more on fiery special moves. There are also plans for fully connected online functionality.
