The new video features a first look at story elements and gameplay for Shang Tsung (voiced by Alan Lee) and his ominous destiny in the reborn Mortal Kombat Universe created by Fire God Liu Kang. The scheming sorcerer’s moveset is on full display, including his fireball projectiles, devastating combos, and signature ability to morph into rival kombatants. The trailer also showcases gameplay for General Shao’s second-in-command, Reiko, the savage warrior with a fighting style that matches his fierce persona, as well as bone-krushing highlights of other launch roster fighters.
Additionally, Mortal Kombat 1 will feature an extensive set of accessibility options for players, including audio descriptions and cues for on-screen action that plays contextually during gameplay. For the full list, click here.
