Mortal Kombat 11 Spawn Trailer: See The Comic Character In Action
Image Comics' infamous anti-Superhero Spawn unleashes his skills in the latest DLC trailer for MK11.
During the livestream for NetherRealm's Final Kombat tournament, Ed Boon and actor Keith David took to the stage to reveal the first gameplay trailer for Spawn, the final character for Mortal Kombat 11's Kombat Pack. As another character based on a comic book series, Spawn's brutal combat style and demonic abilities make him a great fit Mortal Kombat 11's roster. As one of the more anticipated characters from fans to make their debut in the game, the latest fighter will be playable on March 17 in early access for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
In the new gameplay trailer (which features two brand-new Trivium songs), we see Spawn--voiced by returning actor Keith David from the short-lived HBO animated series--take on the various MK11 fighters with his unique brand of devious powers and tactics. Formerly a government assassin, Al Simmons met his death after a betrayal and was reborn as a hellspawn after making a deal with the devil, imbuing him with demonic powers and an organic suit that can summon tendril-like chains and a massive cape that can attack his enemies. In addition to his hellspawn powers, Spawn also has an arsenal of conventional weapons such as grenades and machine-guns, allowing him to mix up his attacks--seen in glorious detail during his Fatal Blow attack.
Just like in the comics, Spawn is a no-nonsense character who's straight to the point, and that's certainly reflected in his pre-match dialog with Scorpion, a similar revenant from the underworld. During the livestream, Ed Boon stated that the developers at NetherRealm have wanted to bring Spawn into Mortal Kombat for quite some time.
Spawn's debut will come with a set of new costumes for other characters as well. Once Spawn goes live on March 17 for owners of the Kombat Pack DLC, a Matinee-themed costume pack is also included, allowing Kotal Kahn, Jacqui Briggs, and Erron Black to wear costumes inspired by 1930s pulp-adventure films. Moreover, Jacqui will also get a bonus costume letting her wear a hellspawn costume inspired by Spawn, likely in reference She-Spawn, one of the anti-hero's allies from the comic.
With a new Kombat Kast scheduled for March 11, we'll be seeing more gameplay of Spawn soon. This character is also the final addition in the current Kombat Pack, which introduced Shang Tsung, Nightwolf, Sindel, The Joker, and The Terminator. With rumors and data leaks of other characters like Ash Williams and Sheeva making an appearance in MK11, we could potentially hear more about another Kombat Pack for Mortal Kombat 11 sometime soon.
