Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack DLC will add the Terminator, the Joker, and other iconic characters to the game.
The Terminator‘s appearance seemingly comes courtesy of a crossover between Mortal Kombat and the upcoming Terminator: Dark Fate. That means this will be the T-800 model of Terminator, which means that it will also resemble Arnold Schwarzenegger (though it doesn’t appear that Arnold has lent his voice to the game).
The Terminator is described via press release as “nearly indestructible” and a character who “possesses superior technology, fighting skills, and artificial intelligence capabilities, making him the ultimate killing machine.” It’s not entirely clear how those skills will translate into the game, but we’re expecting some awesome fatalities.
The Joker appearance doesn’t seem to be tied into any specific promotion. Actually, the version of the character featured in the trailer doesn’t appear to resemble any popular versions of the character that we’ve seen in other mediums. He’s described as having a “deadly and unpredictable combat style,” and we certainly wouldn’t be surprised to hear that he’ll play similarly to the version of the Joker seen in NetherRealm Studios’ Injustice 2.
The Terminator T-800 will be added to the roster on 8 October (via early access) while the Joker is set to be released on 28 January. That same Kombat Pack will see classic Mortal Kombat character Sindel join the game on 26 November, while the iconic Spawn will join the roster on 17 March. Shang Tsung and Nightwolf have already been added to Mortal Kombat 11 as part of this post-release pack.
It’s an interesting time to be a Mortal Kombat fan. Mortal Kombat 11 has stumbled somewhat, but it’s turned out to be a pretty great overall entry into the franchise. There’s also that new Mortal Kombat movie in development which will hope to live up to the legacy of the ’90s classic. We’ll keep you posted as we hear more…
