Mortal Kombat 1 Leak Reveals Kombat Pack DLC Characters, Including Several Guests
If true, the first Kombat Pack packs some serious superpowers.
Barely 24 hours after the first reveal of Mortal Kombat 1, details of the game's first downloadable Kombat Pack may have been leaked by Amazon Italy, and the list is evenly split into half returning fighters and half guest characters with a superpowered edge.
The Amazon Italy listing for the Premium Edition of the game is the specific culprit, as among the known details of early access and premium currency, the site lists the following six names as playable characters included in Kombat Pack 1:
- Quan Chi
- Omni Man
Neither NetherRealm Studios nor Warner Bros. have addressed this information. A developer livestream with Ed Boon and Tyler Lansdown of NetherRealm is scheduled for May 19 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET.
Three of these characters--Quan Chi, Ermac, and Takeda--are known characters in the Mortal Kombat Universe, but the other three names are major guest inclusions. DC Comics' Peacemaker and The Boys' Homelander have been rumored for some time, but this is the first instance of Invincible's Omni Man being mentioned for the game.
The listing also lists five new Kameo Fighters--a special roster of fighters which can only assist a player in battle--that will also be included in Kombat Pack 1, with Tremor, Johnny Cage, Khameleon, Mavado, and Ferra making up that list. Johnny Cage is set to receive a Jean-Claude Van Damme premium skin in the pack as well.
Mortal Kombat 1 will release September 19 for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Those who preorder the Premium or Kollector's Editions will be able to access the full game early on September 14.
