Mortal Kombat 11
- Hype about story mode
I played Mortal Kombat X a few times. I did not spend many hours with it even if I combine the occassions. But it was something I felt I had to try. I played the story mode. It is the first story mode I have played in a fighting game since one of the early Tekken games. Back in the days when multiplayer meant split screen. There was no online multiplayer available.
Since the possibilities to play against other players were limited. You might think that the story modes would have been a big part of those games back in the day. I can't say that it was. It was often about entering a tournament and facing off against different enemies on the road to the final.
Nowadays, you can always find an opponent to play against. All you need to do is to go online and hit a button. It is easy, it is simple. So how come there are such hype regarding the story mode in the next Mortal Kombat game?
I hear people say that Mortal Kombat has the best story mode in their games. I feel that I have to point out that they are not comparing the story to Zelda or other games. We are talking about story modes in the fighting genre.
Personally I am not a big fan of the genre, I don't spend enough hours with the games to feel comfortable with the attacks and combos. But that is not the point. The point of this text is to make you aware of a fighting game arriving soon that will most likely have a solid story mode if that is something that intrests you.
Have a look at the trailer below. There are several trailers on Youtube. Some are more violent than others, and I mean it. Some are really graphical.
It is probably a clever move to create something that is unique within a genre. A solid story mode might attract players that want to have a connection with the characters that they are using to fight with in multiplayer. When you play a story mode you get to know the characters, see what is their story is. If you have played Mortal Kombat games in the past, perhaps it is even more fun to play through a story mode since you recognize a lot of names.
