Mortal Kombat X screenshot bonanza

2 min read


Mortal Kombat X is coming next month, and as you know, we’re all rather excited to bash some heads in and rip out intestines. When we’re done with that, we’d also like to play some Mortal Kombat. 20 of the apparently set cast of 25 base characters have been revealed as playable to date – and one of my perpetual  favourites, the Tarkatan warrior Baraka is not one of them. In a batch of fresh screenshots (via Eventhubs), there appears to be a warrior who looks a heck of a lot like him…or like any other Tarkatan. Is Baraka in Mortal Kombat X?

It looks like it! Or it could just end up being a generic warrior for the hero to face up against in the game’s expansive story mode. Also seen in the screenshots? Erron Black, Shinnok, Goro and Jax. You may notice a complete lack of Liu Kang, who’s only been shown as a statue – which makes me sad, as I may soon owe Darryn some cash.

To recap, here’s the list of confirmed characters:

  • Scorpion
  • Sub-Zero
  • D’Vorah
  • Kotal Kahn
  • Ferra/Torr
  • Raiden
  • Cassie Cage
  • Kano
  • Ermac
  • Reptile
  • Kitana
  • Kung Lao
  • Quan Chi
  • Jacqueline Briggs
  • Takashi Takeda
  • Kung Jin
  • Johnny Cage
  • Sonya Blade
  • Mileena
  • Goro(DLC pre-order bonus)
  • Jason Voorhees(DLC)

The guys are almost certainly confirmed as playable:

  • Jax Briggs
  • Kenshi
  • Shinnok

These guys are looking more than likely to be confirmed:

  • Erron Black
  • Baraka

This lot have been seen in the game’s story trailers and cut-scenes, or as statues:

  • Rain
  • Sindel
  • Smoke
  • Nightwolf
  • Fujin
  • Stryker
  • Kabal
  • Liu Kang
  • Shang Tsung
  • Shao Kahn

The following characters are hinted at, or rumoured to be coming:

  • Cyrax
  • Sector
  • Bo’ Rai Cho
  • Tanya
  • Reiko
  • Tremor
  • Predator
  • Spawn

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
