Midway's beat 'em up returns with online kombat, plus new modes, characters and fatalities.
After a pleasing return to form in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, Midway's veteran beat 'em up series takes its deadly art to new levels in Mortal Kombat: Deception. New characters join old favourites in Mortal Kombat's deadliest roster of fighters to date and, thanks to the addition of online play, you can now inflict savage fatalities on friends and loved ones all around the world.
Offline, the main single player mode is Konquest, which once again sees you journeying into the MK universe, encountering fighters old and new, acquiring new skills and collecting bonus items as you go.
Each MK character now has two individual fatalities and one new Hara-Kiri move; with a roster of 23 fighters (that we know about), that makes 69 unique and brutal ways of dying. MK Deception's multi-tiered environments feature deadly traps, so stage fatalities provide even more ways of instigating your opponent's grizzly demise.
Once you've honed your skills, there's a huge range of multiplayer options available. Online, take on a friend in a single match or, better still, prove your supreme fighting skills in a full tournament. Other multiplayer modes, which can be played online or off, include Puzzle Kombat (classic puzzle gameplay with a deadly twist) and Chess Kombat, a blend of carefully-considered strategy and extreme violence.
