Mortal Kombat: Onslaught gameplay
Unlike other entries in the Mortal Kombat franchise, Onslaught will not be a traditional 2D fighter. Instead, it will be a free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena game. That means players will control multiple characters and use RPG mechanics to take down hoards of enemies from an aerial view. Expect fast-paced gameplay and combat with familiar melee attacks.
“We are pushing the boundaries of Mortal Kombat to allow players to experience the franchise in new ways, while still staying true to its core visceral nature. With Mortal Kombat: Onslaught, we reimagined Mortal Kombat into a strategic team-based collection RPG with fast-paced, group melee combat that both new and existing fans can enjoy.”– Ed Boon
Players can collect, customize, and level up over 30 iconic Mortal Kombat characters, including veterans like Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Johnny Cage, Jade, and Kitana. Each character will have unique fighting skills and specialized abilities to provide strategic advantages in four-person teams.
