Mortal Kombat is all about the gore and that’s why many fans flock to the fighting franchise. The famous fatalities and brutalities in Mortal Kombat X were already a little rough to handle, with Mortal Kombat 11 promising to be even more gag-inducing and gore-filled.
Looking at the few dramatic fatalities and brutalities already shown off in Mortal Kombat 11, we know we’re going to be experiencing some seriously sick violence. If you’ve ever wondered if the violence portrayed in the upcoming Mortal Kombat 11 game can be backed by science, then your questions will be answered.
This cool video from the creators of Mortal Kombat 11, combines real-life fighting with CGI x-ray shots (just like in the game) to show viewers what sort of physical damage is being dealt during these combats. Let’s just say, we’re glad that Mortal Kombat 11 is just a game and people don’t possess the power to really fight like the characters in the game.
The most intense thing shown from this video, is the signature move from one of the most popular Mortal Kombat characters – Sub-Zero’s famous head shatter. We love how much work went into recreating the famous move from Sub-Zero, with the end result not only looking great, but also teaching us some things about physics and biology. Who said video games don’t teach you things?
In the video, the team is assisted by MMA champion, Daniel Cormier, as well as Allen Pan from Sufficiently Advanced – a science meets entertainment show. So, is it possible? We’re not going to spoil it for you, check out the cool video explaining the science behind this intense fighting move from Sub-Zero.
Mortal Kombat 11 is set for release on Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC on 23 April 2019.
