ESL Mortal Kombat X Pro League kicks off Season 2 with $100,000 Prize Pool

The ESL Mortal Kombat X Pro League Season 2 preseason event over the weekend kicked off the biggest ESL MKX Pro League season to date! The upcoming season, which begins November 1st, will see competitors from Europe, North America and CIS battle it out for US$1,000 per region each week, over a period of eight weeks. The best competitors will earn themselves a spot in the Grand Finals, which will pay out a total prize pool of US$100,000 in early 2016.

Making its debut this season is the all-new Mortal Kombat X game integration, set to fully automate aspects of ESL competition, once players sign up for the ESL App on Xbox Live. The game integration will be available in time for the beginning of ESL MKX Pro League Season 2’s regular season November 1st.

“Integrating Mortal Kombat X into our online infrastructure is one of the many things that we are working on at ESL. It has been a pleasure to work with NetherRealm Studios on making it a reality,” said Andreas Hofmann, Software Developer at ESL. “Previously players had to struggle with multiple devices and manually submit their results. Now, ESL’s competitive solution seamlessly pairs you with an opponent connected to the Xbox Live servers and will automatically submit the match outcomes to the ESL Play website.”

“ESL MKX Pro League Season 1 showcased a lot of incredible match-ups and the team at NetherRealm Studios is happy to be working with ESL for Season 2,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios and co-creator of Mortal Kombat. “It will be great to see how the competition pans out.”

PS Vita version of Mortal Kombat out in May

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has scheduled the PlayStation Vita version of Mortal Kombat for a May 1 release in North America, followed by May 4 in Europe.

While most handheld games would skimp on the good stuff, Mortal Kombat is a very accurate port, with all the costume and character DLC, as well as new outfits, modes, and Vita-specific controls to make this the best MK for the kombatant on the go. Why play Poker when you can rip your opponent’s head off of their spine and bathe in the blood of your fallen foe?

Mortal Kombat, which has been given positive reviews thus far, comes with all the DLC from the next-gen console version, which features four characters, eight retro costumes, Kratos, and Sub-Zero’s MK3 costume, all unlocked from the start. Players are not required to complete story mode to unlock Cyber Sub-Zero or Quan Chi, as they are also playable from the beginning. There is also a “Challenge Tower” that includes 300 missions to collect koins to unlock further items (I think an going to stop using the letter “c” in all my articles and replace them with “K’s”).

The game is looking pretty great so far, and this writer is tempted to grab a PS Vita just so he can start playing this game. In other words – “Get over here!”

MMM… toasty!
