Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios announced today that Mortal Kombat X will launch worldwide on April 14, 2015. The game is coming to Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC.

It was also announced today that Goro, a four-armed Shokan warrior, will be playable in the game for people who preorder Mortal Kombat X. You can see an image of Goro above. Presumably, Warner Bros. will release Goro publicly sometime after launch for people who did not preorder, but this was not confirmed today.

Mortal Kombat X is the next entry in the longrunning fighting series, following 2011's Mortal Kombat, which was also developed by NetherRealm Studios. Warner Bros. says the new game will deliver the "most brutal Kombat experience ever." For the first time in the history of the series, players can choose from multiple variations of each fighter, which impacts what strategies you'll use.
