Mortal Kombat X Characters: Jackson And Jacqueline Briggs Show The Family That Slays Together, Stays Together [VIDEO]
The list of Mortal Kombat X characters keeps growing, a fact I don't think you'll find many fans complaining about.
A new video shows off the Briggs family as playable characters--all-American fighters Jackson Briggs and his daughter Jacqueline. These 'Who's Next?' trailers remain pretty cool ways of introducing the roster one piece at a time, and the full list has grown to more than 20 fighters.
The end of the trailer shows off the Kombat Pack DLC characters, a pretty exciting list that includes Predator, Jason Vorhees, Tanya, and Tremor. It can be purchased as part of the Mortal Kombat X Premium Edition, or separately.
The Briggs--especially Jackson--take on a brute force style of fighting if the trailer is anything to go by. The pair go fist-first into combat with what appear to be mechanically augmented arms, allowing the sort of brutal blows you see below.
Just yesterday we saw a video with all of the game's known fatalities, a gruesome (and awesome) parade of violence and destruction. Some of the finishing moves are quite creative--the developers are not lacking for imagination. Also in that video is a selection of the x-ray hits, which zoom in with slow-motion on body parts and bones as they receive crushing blows. This is Mortal Kombat after all, so why not?
Mortal Kombat X will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on April 14.
