Mortal Kombat has a rich back story, that new players, like myself, should know before jumping into Mortal Kombat X.
Mortal Kombat X – The Lore for Newbies.
It can be daunting to jump into a new game, especially a fighting game as a player new to the genre, mechanics and story. Mortal Kombat, a pop culture icon is no different and in fact may be even more intimidating.
If, like myself, you are planning on jumping into MK X and have no background then these are for you.
First… read this: Mortal Kombat Storyline . It’s an excellent piece, that gave me a great insight into why I’m actually fighting in MK X. I never realized how much story a fighting game could have. As an ignorant neophyte to this genre I thought it was just show up, punch, kick… win. How wrong I was.
OK, I knew it was much more than that, but I didn’t realize how much more. The Mortal Kombat backstory and lore are incredible.
If you are more of a video guy, I can’t recommend the following video highly enough. Nothing that I could write, could explain it better than the video below. It’s long, but well worth watching before you jump into Mortal Kombat X.
