Along with the release date and trailer of "Mortal Kombat X Kombat Pack 2" DLC, it has been revealed that the game characters will all be released at once.
On Jan. 29, NetherRealm Studios creative director and "Mortal Kombat" co-creator Ed Boon tweeted that all the new fighters in "Mortal Kombat XL" and "Mortal Kombat Pack 2" would become available on the same day, which is on Mar. 1.
Some Twitter fans asked Boon about the Cosplay skins for the upcoming "Mortal Kombat" game format. As per Boon's response, the Cosplay skins are set to be free to those who pre-ordered the "Mortal Kombat XL" game version.
The crew at NetherRealm opten to release the characters one by one when "Mortal Kombat X Pack 1" was announced. As suggested by Ubergizmo, releasing the characters at once would favor some gamers, even though a gradual character release would make the DLC feel longer.
The publication added that the release of the characters on a single date is linked to the release of the "Mortal Kombat XL," which basically stands as a "Mortal Kombat X" game infused with DLC bundles in it. Thus, it is assumed that those who have not had a copy of the game may practically save up for "Mortal Kombat X Pack 2."
According to Major Nelson, "Mortal Kombat XL" includes the main game, as well as playable characters like Bo'Rai Cho Tri-borg, Leatherface, and Xenomorph from Alien. It also features previously released characters like Goro, Tanya, Tremor, Jason Vorhees, and Predator.
Bo'Rai Cho uses his huge built and being overweight to his advantage. With his body frame, he is able to immobilize them and knock his opponent down. He can also use his flatulence and vomitus as secret weapons to defeat his opponents. Debuting in "Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance," Bo'Rai Cho makes a return in the upcoming "Mortal Kombat" game iteration.
From horror film franchises like "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," Leatherface also makes an appearance in the "Mortal Kombat" game. Similar to how he, as one of the first film slashers, managed to kill characters in Toby Hooper's classic 1974 horror film, Leatherface can also make the same attacks to the other "Mortal Kombat" characters with his brutal slashing moves.
Extraterrestrial creatures are very common in sci-fi stories in films and books. In "Mortal Kombat," Xenomorph is set to make his way to brawl against other in-game characters. From the "Alien" film series, the character can swipe and deal damage to its opponents with its sharply bladed tail.
Triborg is known to be the newest to the "Mortal Kombat" franchise. Recognized as the fusion of cyborgs Smoke, Cyrax, and Sketor, it is assumed that Triborg can do missile firing, buzz sawing, and teleportation as his attacks, in addition to his android tentacles.
Also, the game includes new skin packs, such as the Apocalypse and Medieval Pack, along with a new setting, the Pit Stage. It has also been added that the Cosplay Pack revitalizes "Mortal Kombat X" characters including Jacqui Briggs and Cassie Cage.
With the latest reveal, it is assumed that fans are set to wait for the characters to arrive at game consoles in March.
"Mortal Kombat XL" for the Xbox One can now be pre-ordered for $59.99.
