Ermac breaks Sub-Zero's bones in latest Mortal Kombat X gameplay video

Crank it up to 1080p60.

Ermac - the now-established Mortal Kombat fighter who originated as a fan-fabricated character who was sparked into life by an alleged glitch in the original 1992 game - is playable in Mortal Kombat X - and developer NetherRealm has released a short 1080p60 gameplay video showcasing his special moves.

Ermac is a soul-harbouring ninja who uses telekinesis to chuck himself about and break his opponents' bones from afar. You get a good sense of this with Ermac's X-Ray move. Warning, it's not for the faint of heart.

We also catch a glimpse at Ermac's Fatality, although in true Mortal Kombat X trailer tradition, the video ends before the gruesome payoff.

Here's the list of confirmed characters for Mortal Kombat X:

  • Goro
  • Ermac
  • Kano
  • Kitana
  • Kung Lao
  • Quan Chi
  • Raiden
  • Reptile
  • Scorpion
  • Sub-Zero
  • Cassie Cage
  • D'Vorah
  • Ferra/Torr
  • Kotal Kahn
