Mortal Kombat 4 featured new characters, gameplay, graphics, and a new villain and storyline. Also, the game has some elements from Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub Zero. In this game, players can also draw the weapons of every fighter, which is cool.
Plot. Thousands of years ago, during a war against the fallen Elder God Shinnok, and the Thunder God Raiden was responsible for the death of an entire civilization. To avoid such mistake to be repeated, Raiden banished Shinnok into the Netherealm. Before the first tournament, the original Sub Zero helped Quan Chi in obtaining Shinnok's amulet, the source of Shinnok's power. Now, Quan Chi has allied himself with the fallen Elder God, and rescues him from his confines. With the help of an Edenian traitor named Tanya, they kill most of the gods. Knowing the threat they pose, Fujin and Raiden gather Earth's greatest fighters to fight against the evil trio.
