Mortal Kombat X is exactly a week away, so we have the official launch trailer for the game for you watch. As you can see, the trailer is as brutal as you’d expect it to be, but that’s not why I like it. I like it because it is obvious that they had fun making it. Watch it below and see just how well the soundtrack and the visuals fit together.

The trailer was directed by System of a Down’s bassist Shavo Odadjian, so now you know why the song goes so well with all the beating, breaking, maiming and mutilating we see on-screen.

Mortal Kombat X is out April 14 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
