So for those of you that don’t play the game (shame on you), Mortal Kombat takes place in a universe of 18 realms which was created by the Elder Gods. The Mortal Kombat tournament has Earthrealm (the good guys) and the Netherrealm (the bad guys) fight for control and power. By defeating the other realms greatest warriors, the winner gains control and conquers the realms.
Mortal Kombat X is amazing for a couple of reasons: first it jumps ahead into the future, introducing us to a bunch of new characters (such as Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade’s daughter) and second, it takes us into a new Mortal Kombat universe, which is awesome.
