Mortal Kombat has long been the stuff of horror. Especially if you were a concerned parent who just wanted people to think of the children, dammit! Heck, the previous Mortal Kombat even dipped its bloody shoes into classic cinematic history, by allowing players to assume the role of the Springwood Slasher himself, Freddy Kruger. Fast forward a few years, and it’s time for another notorious slasher to make a bloody splash in the game. So stay away from Kamp Krystal Lake, because Jason is coming to town.
Here’s the latest trailer for Jason’s debut in the game, which features the talkative bastard puling off Danny Trejo levels of Machete violence:
Just like every other Mortal Kombat X character, Jason will have access to three variations. Variations which I’ve broken down below for you, because I’m such a swell fella:
- Slasher – Machete heavy attacks and Jason at his classic best. Slasher allows Jason to focus on hacking and bleeding his opponents dry.
- Relentless – Jason drops the machete and goes for a more hands-on approach that opens up grapple options. Jason can also “flip” the attacks of his opponents so that countering becomes more difficult, and gains a teleport where he always pops up behind you for extra chills.
- Unstoppable – Jason can regenerate his health bar, while also significantly buffing the damage of his moves. As an added bonus, if Jason is knocked down, he’ll either recover using energy from meter bar, or if that’s empty, he’ll resurrect with 5% left on his health bar.
Kombat Pass owners get a taste of Mama Voorhees’ favourite boy from today. He’ll be available as a standalone purchase on May 12 for £3.99 or a fistful of dollars.
