Mortal Kombat: Armageddon
The Motal Kombat fighting game series are hugely popular and Mortal Kombat: Armageddon is the seventh title in the series. Mortal Kombat is known for its exciting, and sometimes weird, storyline so dive right into it.
The main story of the Mortal Kombat series revolves around the warriors of the realms fighting the kombantants. At the beginning of this title, it is shown that the kombatants have grown too numerous and vigorous for the realms to keep defeating. Their powers are so strong that the entire universe of Mortal Kombat is under threat from them. In this title, every hero and villain of the series have made a comeback, somehow.
The villains form a temporary alliance to get rid of the heroes of the realms. These villains include all the big ones, from Shao Kahn to Onaga and the Deadly Alliance. The Elder Gods are also seen helping ‘Team Evil’ by resurrecting Scorpion. Scorpion rejoined the ranks of the villains, and the Shirai Ryu were resurrected the Elder Gods as mindless ghouls. For someone who isn’t familiar with the Mortal Kombat storyline from the beginning, this is a lot of confusing twists in the story! But every Mortal Kombat fan knows that this time the villains are clearly stronger in numbers and their powers.
As the game progresses, Taven is shown to be finally awake from his slumber. Unfortunately, he discovers that his intended fight against Daegon has not turned out to be what he had hoped; Daegon is a crazy mass murderer. Taven starts traveling to different location and fighting evil, as heroes do. Eventually, he reaches battle royale, that is, the Battle of Armageddon.
The Battle of Armageddon
The story reaches its climax as the forces of the good and evil face off in the epic battle on the desert wasteland that threatens to bring down the Apocalypse. As the fighting continues, a pyramid rises from the ground and its tip bursts into flame. Naturally, the fighters are distracted by the burning pyramid, and Blaze is revealed to at the top of the pyramid. Entranced by Blaze and the fire people fight each other in the race to the top. Blaze, the fire spawn, had been created by the Elder God to destroy as many warriors as possible so that the realms could be saved from Armageddon. So each warrior has to prove he is worthy of surviving.
With such an important battle, you would expect the hero of the story, Taven, to win, right? Unfortunately, the hero does not live up to our expectations and perishes with countless others. The only one left is Shao Kahn. He defeats Blaze and considers himself the victor of all, but it is soon revealed that Raiden is also alive. And the story of the battle of Armageddon ends here.
The story continues in the next game in the series, Mortal Kombat (2011).
