As one of the edgiest comic-book characters from the 1990s, Spawn isn't your average superhero. Complete with an incredibly dark origin story that ties his fate to the demons of hell, his no-nonsense attitude, vulgar language, and brutal methods made him a far cry from other heroes like Superman or Batman. With such a dark background, and set of bizarre and violent powers to use on his enemies, this makes Spawn an excellent addition to the Mortal Kombat 11 roster. The titular character feels right at him in the grotesque violence and over-the-top action on display in Netherrealm Studios' latest fighting game, and we've got plenty of gameplay to show of him in action.
Ahead of his debut in Mortal Kombat 11, we went hands-on with Spawn and put him through his paces against many of the seasoned fighters. In this gameplay video, we show off a battle with the hellspawn facing off against Mortal Kombat's stalwart fighter Liu Kang. It makes for an exciting contrast seeing a gritty and hyper-violent comic-book character coming to blows with MK's fireball slinging, kung-fu brawler. Yet, it all made for a fun and thrilling fight, which of course, ends in gruesome fashion.
As the last character of the current Kombat Pack, Spawn introduces an extraordinarily bizarre and violent fighting style into the mix, which should make for a fun time experimenting with his demonic powers. Along with the new character, Mortal Kombat 11 will also get new Matinee-themed costumes for Jacqui Briggs, Kotal Kahn, and Erron Black inspired by 1930s pulp-adventure serials. Moreover, Jacqui Briggs will get one more outfit inspired by Spawn, giving her the appearance of a hellspawn.
Spawn in Mortal Kombat 11 will be available to current owners on March 17, while non-Kombat Pack owners will be able to play as him on March 24.
