The highly customized Unreal 3 Engine graphics of Mortal Kombat X have made some folks who've had a chance to play it or see footage of the game uncomfortable with the amount of realistically rendered graphical violence. Not us!

Scroll all the way down for the PAX-streamed Twitch video of a Mortal Kombat X match between Kano and Raiden and one between Sub Zero and Scorpion. And just because we like you - a post-PAX updated list of tidbits we know about the game so far:

Returning characters:

- Scorpion

- Sub Zero

- Raiden

- Kano

- Kitana uncertain (a fan tweeted to Ed Boon she was dead and therefore couldn't return, to which he said "you know this is Mortal Kombat, right?")

Which Pieces Of Eden And Historical Figures Can We Expect In AC: Rogue?

New characters:

- D'Vorah, a woman who controls insects.

- Cassie Cage, the daughter of Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade.

- Kotal Kahn, an Aztec-inspired blood god.

- Ferra and Torr, a Master-Blaster like duo of a little person woman riding an armored giant dude.

Every character will have three outfits, emphasizing different fighting styles. Wear a different outfit? You'll be playing a different character almost.

Raiden's variants

Master Of Storms: set electricity based traps on the battlefield

Displacer: various teleportation and mobility powers.

Thunder God: increases hits to some normal attacks and adds Enhanced Lightning.

Kotal Kahn's variants

Blood God: you can plant boosting totems

War God: macuahuitl based special moves

Scorpion's variants:

Hellfire, Ninjitsu, Inferno

Sub Zero's variants:

Cryomancer, Grandmaster, Unbreakable

Kano's variants:

Cutthroat, Commando, (third unknown)

There will be NO DC characters as bonus downloads, nor will Kiefer Sutherland have any involvement in the game. Freddy Krueger, a popular MK9 bonus character, is still up for debate. There will be no Street Fighter cross-over.

The game uses the Unreal 3 engine, highly customized. 60 fps, 1080p promised even on last-gen consoles.
