For Honor Player Spots Mortal Kombat Easter Egg Hidden in Plain Sight
Now that For Honor is upon us, we’re sure you are all chomping at the bit for that next brutal kill. One might even say you are aiming to rack up a fatality or two. While doing so, you may want to keep those peepers of yours wide open. One eagle-eyed Reddit user, who goes by the name Lacront, spotted something a bit familiar while playing the open beta of the game. It appears that they found a Mortal Kombat easter egg. Also, it may be outlined in red and zoomed in on, but go ahead and try to guess what this is in reference to before continuing to read. Check it out:
During the opening of a PvP map, the Mortal Kombat easter egg can be seen off in the distance, as is exhibited in the screenshot above. In the upper part of the screen, two fighters are shown to be fighting on a bridge. Well, they are in a fighting stance, at least. When you take a closer look, the duel appears to be between none other than Blaze and Hornbuckle, two fighters “featured” in Mortal Kombat II.
These two never actually fight in the classic title, but are rather seen in the background of the popular Pit II arena. Both Blaze and Hornbuckle were originally named by fans of the fighting series. However, the man fighting Hornbuckle was named Torch until later games showed that his actual name is Blaze. It’s a pretty clever easter egg from the new Ubisoft title and is a great nod to one of the greatest video game franchises in history.
What do you think of the Mortal Kombat easter egg, gamers? Do you believe more will be found in For Honor? Do you plan to pick up the new title that was released on February 14?
