Following the unveiling of Mortal Kombat X’s latest characters to be added by developer NetherRealm Studios and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, at The Game Awards 2015, players of the ever popular fighting game likely know by now who the latest Kombatants to join the mortal fray in the title’s impending Kombat Pack 2 will be. To reiterate, the next batch of series newcomers will include Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and the Xenomorph from Alien, as well as franchise originals Tri-Borg and Bo’Rai Cho.
The news of the inclusion of such star players from their respective independent properties in the latest batch of new downloadable content for the game is likely to be met with plenty of eager appraisal from players, and the latest gameplay trailer offers plenty of reason to get excited about said fighters.
Who would’ve thought Leatherface or Xenmorph Alien would make an appearance in the Mortal Kombat universe? Probably some especially since Predator made his appearance and the existing rivalry between him and the Alien already happen, so it was inevitable. As for Leatherface, the brutality level this killer has displayed in the movie’s franchise is beyond compatible for the Mortal Kombat series. Then, you have the classic characters, Tri-Borg and Bo’Rai Cho making their appearance. Tri-Borg has a three skin selection of Cyrax, Sektor, and Smoke giving a different yet amazing aspect to the what’s possible in battle. As for Master Bo’Rai Cho his repulsive and agile move set will bring the ancient art of martial arts back to the series.
In addition to the four star players already discussed, those who purchase Kombat Pack 2 will also receive the brand new Apocalypse Pack, featuring series regular Goro as a playable character, and several new character skins to play with.
See the list below for a more detailed summary of the contents of the attendant Apocalypse Pack:
- Goro – The feral, four-armed Shokan warrior will be available as a playable combatant.
- Apocalypse Pack – The Apocalypse Pack features three new character skins, reimagining characters Takeda, D’Vorah and Erron Black with an apocalyptic theme.
- Brazil Pack – The Brazil Pack features three new character skins: Futbol Cage, Capoeira Liu Kang and Gaucho Kung Lao.
- Kold War Pack – The Kold War Pack includes three new character skins: Motherland Sonya, Tundra Sub-Zero and Revolution Kano.
- Kold War Scorpion – Kold War-themed Scorpion character skin.
Even though NetherRealm Studios has gotten some negative reactions for the latest Kombat Pack reveal, but the intrigue of a lot of fans will garner some substantial amount of money for the Mortal Kombat game to play the latest batch of characters.
Despite the cancellation of the game on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, it would appear as though players who own the respective next-gen versions of the game are likely in for a treat with the release of Kombat Pack 2.
Mortal Kombat X is currently available to purchase from all participating retailers on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
