We'll be getting a look at Tremor, the upcoming character for Mortal Kombat X, this Sunday, series creator Ed Boon has teased. And although he's the last confirmed character to be coming as DLC, more may still be on the way.
Boon announced on Twitter that a Mortal Kombat livestream next Tuesday, July 21, will feature a gameplay breakdown of Tremor. Subsequently, he's sent out a number of tweets all but confirming that, with Evo 2015 taking place this weekend, Tremor will first be seen this Sunday.
The images above and below were both sent out with references to Sunday. The one above reads, "Seismic activity is predicting something could be happening on Sunday..." The other states, "Is that a flaming ground buzz saw?" and is accompanied by Tremor and Sunday hashtags.
Additionally, in response to a tweet asking if Tremor would be playable on Sunday, Boon responded, "PLAY? No… SEE?"
Tremor will be the fourth DLC character released for Mortal Kombat X, and is the final part of the game's Kombat Pack season pass. However, in his tweet about next week's livestream, Boon describes Tremor as the "Kombat Pack Final? fighter." Given his propensity for teasing announcements on Twitter, the question mark after final could be taken to mean that Tremor won't, in fact, be the last DLC character.
Prior to the game's launch, many Mortal Kombat fans were disappointed to learn that series mainstays like Noob, Smoke, Baraka, Sindel, and Nightwolf wouldn't be playable. Some of these are included in the game, but only as non-playable characters with limited move sets for you to see or fight against. This led to some speculation that these characters could be more fully developed in the future and released as DLC.
That remains a possibility, but for the time being, there's no indication of what future DLC might consists of. Let us know who you'd like to see added to the game in the comments below.
