The new premiere trailer showed off Mortal Kombat mainstays Raiden and Scorpion fighting each other using weapons, painful melee attacks and everything in between.

Not much was revealed about the game, but those who played Mortal Kombat X would know that Raiden isn't himself and the new trailer shows that. His blue and white lightning as well as his white eyes have turned red. There are dead bodies strewn all over the battlefield.
