Mortal Kombat 11 may have another DLC character reveal incoming, thanks to an odd sequence of events surrounding a case of grand theft auto during E3 2019. NetherRealm boss Ed Boon offered to show off a new fighter as a reward for helping a friend find his apparently stolen car, and now that it's been located, the community is waiting to see if it leads to a DLC reveal after all.

Boon first made the offer in a tweet on the afternoon of June 13, seeking help to locate the car of his friend, Shane Satterfield. Satterfield requested help with more details about the make and model of the car with his own tweet, plus a partial license plate number. Satterfield added that he had already checked with the police and the car was not towed. Boon specifically recruited E3 attendees to help out since the car was stolen in Los Angeles.

Now Playing: Mortal Kombat 11 (Almost) Strikes A Tricky Balance

Hours later, Satterfield announced that the car had been found with a picture of it in a parking garage. He said he found it with his wife, but thanked the community for helping to keep his hopes alive throughout the ordeal.

Technically, Boon's offer was to reveal a new fighter if E3 attendees helped find the car. It's unclear if fans played any role, but the car was found, and Satterfield was grateful for all the help, so that would seem to fulfill the requirement. Boon didn't specify when or how the reveal would come. He did, however, acknowledge that it had been found on Thursday night, tweeting, "Great news!"

So far NetherRealm has officially revealed Shang Tsung, Spawn, Nightwolf, and Sindel as DLC fighters. The first MK11 Kombat Pack will include 6 DLC fighters in all, plus one-week early access to them.
