(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – The next installment in the Mortal Kombat franchise is set to be released next year, and co-creator Ed Boon has revealed some details about the technology used in the new fighting game.
When asked by a fan via Twitter on what engine Mortal Kombat X will use, Boon replied,” Using our highly self-customized version of Unreal 3. 60 fps 1080p!”
According to the game’s official website, the game will be “fueled by next-gen technology” for “unparalleled, cinematic presentation with all new gameplay to deliver the most brutal Kombat experience ever.”
“For the first time ever, Mortal Kombat X gives players the ability to choose from multiple variations of each character impacting both strategy and fighting style. And with a new fully-connected gameplay experience, players are launched into a persistent online contest where every fight matters in a global battle for supremacy.”
Mortal Kombat X was announced last Monday by Chicago based developer NetherRealm Studios, and is currently available for pre-order from BestBuy, Walmart, Target, Newegg, Amazon, and GameStop for $59.99 on the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, and PS3 consoles.
