Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios have just released a new game play video. This video showcases Raiden, who you will see beating the crap out of Kotal Kahn at his finest. This game play video will also showcase Raiden's character variations. (If you are unsure what a character variation is in Mortal Kombat X, check out another piece I have done explaining them here.)
Raiden's variations consist of "Thunder God," "Displacer" and "Storm Lord." Each variation gives Raiden a different offensive or defensive advantage. Check out the video below narrated by NetherRealm Studios creative directed Ed Boon.
Thunder God - Gives Raiden the potential to do more damage by enhancing his lightning skills. Includes combos only unique to this variation.
Displacer - This variation enhances Raidens teleport ability allowing him to teleport to multiple attack zones. This ability is good defensibly to escape rush downs and also offensively allowing you to do combat from up close or behind, making Raiden harder to contain.
Storm Lord - This final variation allows Raiden to have a sense of control over the battlefield by setting lightning traps. These traps come in handy when trying to corner opponents and when trying to effect wide areas.
Mortal Kombat X is set to release in 2015 for the Playstation 4, Playstation 3, X Box One, X Box 360 and Windows PC.
