Spawn, Joker and Arnold Schwarzenegger are joining Mortal Kombat 11… and more will likely follow.
After ample speculation, NeatherRealm Studios has pulled the curtain back on the DLC characters in Mortal Kombat 11’s Kombat Pass. The studio did so in a star-studded trailer that finally gave us a glimpse of Spawn in Mortal Kombat 11. The two biggest reveals were saved for the end of the trailer, though. After a closeup of the Todd MacFarlane’s Spawn, we were treated to the confirmation that both Joker and Terminator T-800 are joining the fray.
You may recognize this version of The Terminator since he is being portrayed in Mortal Kombat 11 by none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger. This deal marks the second gaming crossover with the upcoming film Terminator: Dark Fate, following in the steps of the preorder DLC for Gears 5. The T-800 and Spawn look to be perfect fits for Mortal Kombat, but seeing Batman’s clown prince of crime enter this setting still feels odd. I’m sure he’ll have some horrific Fatalities that (in)justify his inclusion, though.
According to NetherRealm Studios, The Terminator will join MK11 on October 8th. He’ll then be followed by Sindel on November 26th. Joker will proceed to crash the party on January 28th. Finally, Spawn will escape hell and join the chaos on March 17th.
Could more characters be on the way for Mortal Kombat 11?
While these guest combatants should be enough to appease Mortal Kombat fans, their reveal indicates that more is still to come. Back in April, Redditor LeoNatan datamined the Switch version of MK11 and found a long list of DLC fighters. Namely, all six characters that have been revealed thus far, as well as three additional alleged roster members.
Based on the report, the characters still missing are Mortal Kombat veterans Fujin and Sheeva, as well as Evil Dead’s Ash Williams. The latter is a character that fans have wanted to see join Mortal Kombat for some time now. Fans even believed that Ash would be amongst this first wave of characters after a chainsaw was teased in the Kombat Pass reveal trailer–a signature weapon of the character. Evidently, that’s not the case, but the accuracy of the datamined list suggests that there’s more DLC to come.
