Omni-Man Joins Mortal Kombat 1 Roster In November, Full Kombat Pass Timeline Revealed

Think, Liu Kang!


At the Invincible panel at New York Comic Con this past weekend, NetherRealm Studios revealed that Omni-Man will be the first downloadable fighter for Mortal Kombat 1, and that he will be available in November.

A new gameplay trailer focused on Omni-Man was shown during the panel, which showed a Fatal Blow and two Fatalities ripped straight from iconic moments from the comic book and TV show. The trailer also confirmed J.K. Simmons will reprise his role in the game--as his voice can be heard threatening Liu Kang and Scorpion--while also highlighting Tremor as the first downloadable Kameo fighter.

NetherRealm also confirmed the timeline for the first Kombat Pass, which is set to add six characters including Omni-Man to the roster between November and Summer 2024. The full release schedule is as follows:

  • Omni-Man (November 2023)
  • Quan Chi (Winter 2023/2024)
  • Peacemaker (Winter 2023/2024)
  • Ermac (Spring 2024)
  • Homelander (Spring 2024)
  • Takeda (Summer 2024)

While the studio did not also confirm when the other announced DLC Kameo fighters--Ferra, Khameleon, Mavado, and Johnny Cage--would launch, they did make one notable (and minor story spoiler) change: The Johnny Cage Kameo fighter will actually be Janet Cage, the gender-swapped version who briefly appears in the final chapter of MK1's campaign.

Mortal Kombat 1 is available now on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The Kombat Pass is also available now, either as a separate purchase for $40 or as part of the $110 Premium edition.
