Blood-Soaked Mortal Kombat X Trailer

Readers of a nervous disposition should really have known better than clicking on an article with 'blood-soaked' in the title.

Still, we only felt it polite to warn you that the latest trailer for Mortal Kombat X (that's ten, not an ugly misuse of the letter x) is really, quite impossibly violent. 

From circular saw hats to bladed fans, every surface on display is either razor sharp or covered in pints of blood. The combat animations look so fluid you'll find your thumbs mapping out combos memorised in the mists of your youth. 

And don't skip out early - keep watching the trailer to the end to see which classic character makes a return for the tenth title. 

Mortal Kombat X arrives on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PCs on 14 April
