Warning: This trailer features blood, gore, and even a ruptured eyeball. Do not watch this if you can’t handle the violence.
Ewwww, controlling the powers of earth is apparently a pretty good method of doing away with a Mortal Kombat X opponent. Why hasn’t Tremor gotten in on the action sooner? My guess is because earlier consoles couldn’t handle these bone-crushing fatalities.
Tremor is a relatively unknown Mortal Kombat character, but this is not the first time he has appeared. Cameo appearances in Mortal Kombat: Special Forces and the previous 2011 Mortal Kombat game have hinted at the existence of an earth-elemental ninja, and Mortal Kombat X brings those cameos full circle. His DLC pack, available this week, will mark his first appearance as a playable character.
And yes, his fatalities are absolutely devastating. Much more so than a typical “I leaped through your body” or “I ripped your head off” that others use. This man can raise giant rocks from the ground and crush opponents between them or puncture their skulls with stalagmites that pierce up from the ground. Oh yeah, he controls the power of lava to great effect as well.
Tremor will be available as Mortal Kombat X DLC this week for those with a season pass, and he will be sold separately next week on July 28.
