Midway has released an exclusive trailer to GameSpot that provides a better look at its upcoming multiplatform fighting game, Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. The fifth installment in the series, the game marks the first all-new installment of the fighting series to be released exclusively on home consoles. The plot revolves around an alliance between the evil Shang Tsung and Quan Chi. The roster of fighters will include returning favorites Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Raiden, Jax, Sonya, Kitana, Reptile, Shang Tsung, and Quan Chi as well as new characters, such as a vampire-like character named Malvado and a demonic creature called Moloch.
Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance will also feature a number of new gameplay elements ranging from varied fighting styles and the use of weapons to interactive elements in the various fighting arenas. The details released on three arenas in the game--the acid bath, Kuatan Palace, and the lava shrine--reveal that they feature hazards that players must be conscious of during battle. While the hazards do pose a threat to both fighters, they can also be exploited to allow one player to gain the upper hand in a fight.
Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance is currently slated to ship this fall across all platforms. Look for more on the game here at GameSpot next week from E3. You can also check out Midway's official Web site devoted to the game for further details.
