Mortal Kombat: Onslaught is an upcoming role-playing game in the Mortal Kombat series, scheduled to be released for mobile platforms in 2023 and If you're a mortal Kombat fan and you love AFK mobile games then Onslaught is right up your alley. Mortal Kombat Onslaught is the newest addition to the mortal Kombat lineup and this time I'm a bit 50/50 on if I like it or not.
I'm a huge Mortal Kombat fan and nerd of the series indulging myself in plentiful amounts of lore and played every title in the franchise and when i see that there's another title to grind through and bust out new fatalities it gets me psyched like a kid in a candy store. Introducing Mortal Kombat Onslaught a brand new RPG coming to mobile as a gacha AFK arena skin in 2023.
The core gameplay of onslaught sees it as a new RPG mobile game releasing in 2023 and goddamn it the game is an auto battler. It honestly feels like AFK arena but with a mortal Kombat skin slapped over it. Which makes me upset since one to the cooler android/iOS mobile game for mortal Kombat was an actual fighter for the console variations. I don't have a problem adding RPG elements but the gameplay is a auto battle and just make sure you have a strong team. Which of course you gather that team through the gacha system.
There are currently 3 modes (Story, Arena which is your PvP and you can form a team and go against other players and boss battles which is similar to the towers in the console port of Mortal Kombat but you pick a character to fight against in which my case I chose either Quan chi or Goro and you face them in increasing difficulty which it hits a major spike in difficulty so definitely make sure to upgrade your squad prior before jumping into the game. There are elements in the game or as the game refers to as Affinity Which is the mind, body and spirit.
The graphics will remind a lot of players of Mk11 and Story feels like its in between Shinnok rise in power MK10. The story gets a bit confusing and probably some time paradox or a whole new story using MK10 and MK11 as the basis. The story is told in cutscene format and as well as text format in which the cutscenes feels like replaying MK11 all over again
This game isn't for you if you're not a fan of auto battler mobile games but if you don't care about it and you're a fan of the Mortal Kombat Series then it's definitely worth checking it out with it's limited modes to play and auto combat and gacha system.
