Mortal Kombat Kombat Pack 2 release for Xbox One, PC and PS4 in early 2016; Ed Boon teases new characters


NetherRealm Studios is giving fans of Mortal Kombat X even more reasons to be excited about the game as it officially announced that it will be releasing the Kombat Pack 2 DLC by early 2016.

“Today Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment confirmed that NetherRealm Studios is developing new downloadable content (DLC) for Mortal Kombat X , the best-selling game of 2015 to-date according to US NPD. The new content will include four new playable characters, skins and a new environment, all of which will be available in the first half of 2016,” the official statement read.

The Kombat Pack 2  follows the original Kombat Pack that added four additional characters skins and costumes to the game.

There has been no final announcement yet who the four new characters will be but there is a wide pool of characters to choose from espcailly after MKX kicked off with the inclusion of iconic characters like Predator, Jason Vorhees, Tremor and Tanya, reported  iDigitalTimes.

Not one to let the fans down, NetherRealm Studios head Ed Boon tweeted an image of a silhouette of the four new characters bearing the question “Whose Next?” to encourage avid gamers to rack their brains for possibilities.

A ScreenRant article has already made a fearless forecast as to who the silhouettes could belong to .

One of the contenders on their list is Baraka, a minor character in the game’s story mode that had a decent set of moves and animations. Fans have reportedly been jailbreaking him for years just to get to play the character.

Another guess is that The Joker could be part of the new lineup after an earlier interview with Boon had him dismissing the idea of a Marvel character. The Joker is most definitely a DC character.

The third figure, according to the report, could belong to either Cyrax, Smoke or Sektor, one of the cyborg characters from the Mortal Kombat franchise.

The last in the list is another character from Mortal Kombat’s Story Mode, Bo’ Rai Cho who is a master of the drunken fist mode which could be a lot of fun for fans of the game.

Other guesses include Noob, Saibot, Rain, another ninja, Sindel, Elvira, Kabal, Kylo Ren, Indiana Jones or Neo. At this point, anyone is possible.
