The retail version of Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition for PC has landed on store shelves. The digital version was released early last month, and now gamers who prefer the physical route can try the High Voltage Software-adapted release. The Komplete Edition includes all of the DLC previously released for the 360 and PS3 versions: four character packs (Skarlet, Kenshi, Rain, and Freddy Krueger), 15 Klassic Skins, and three Klassic Fatalities (Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Reptile). Multiplayer features one-on-one combat and King of the Hill Mode, and gamepads are also supported, including the Tournament Edition Fight Stick.
Larian Studios’ latest action strategy-RPG title, Divinity: Dragon Commander, has launched online and in stores. As the Dragon Commander, players will control a struggling emperor as he strives to battle back usurpers and unify his fractured empire. From their headquarters onboard of a massive airship, players will recruit units, build structures, mobilize their troops, and consult with representatives from the world’s five races. To top it off, players can lead the charge personally by morphing into a jetpack-wearing dragon during combat. (Insert a dragon roar, the sounds of flames scorching earth, and the screams of the fleeing enemy here.)
The Tales series continues today with a brand-new entry, Tales of Xillia. The PS3 exclusive follows medical student Jude Mathis and Milla Maxwell, a shadowy figure who is followed by four invisible creatures, as they venture about Rieze Maxia in a quest to restore mana to the world. The game is played from both perspectives until the two cross paths and join forces after finding out the cause of the disruption. The series’ real-time battle system returns, but it now allows characters to link together for support and linked artes attacks.
