The Predator has been confirmed as the latest addition to Mortal Kombat X's vast character roster, according to an official listing on the Xbox Store.

While no official art or character details have been revealed, the listing shows that the Predator will be available first to those who buy premium edition of the game, along with the horror icon Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th series.

The Premium Edition offers early access to four new playable characters, publisher Warner Bros said. Though the details of the other two characters remain undisclosed, Warner Bros said these would be "Klassic Mortal Kombat characters."

Meanwhile, during a live gameplay demonstration on Twitch, developer NetherRealm revealed a new finisher called the "Quitality," which affects players who decide to exit online games mid-fight. If players prematurely quit an online match, their character's head will explode, giving the remaining character an instant win.

According to NetherRealm developer Derek Kirtzic, the concept of a Quitaity is to reward players who have been abandoned, as opposed to punishing those who abscond from online duels.

"It's really more [about] making the winner look better," Kirtzic said, as quoted by Polygon.

The Quitaiity is added to the game's Fatality and Brutality maneuvers, which you can see below.
