New “Mortal Kombat X” Characters Revealed In “Kombat Pack 2” Gameplay Trailer

Mortal Kombat X reveals "Kombat Pack 2" gameplay trailer.

Nine months after its initial release, Mortal Kombat X still has some more fight and added replay value left to offer gamers. Last week, NetherRealm Studios creative director Ed Boone announced that a second Kombat Pack for the latest Mortal Kombat game is on the way. The trailer for the next round of downloadable MKX content has now arrived, revealing four brand-new characters that players can use to fight to the death with an arsenal of attacks.

The expansion of new Kombatants includes the cyborg ninja Tri-Borg, fan favorite Bo’ Rai Cho, Texas Chainsaw Massacre’s Leatherface and Alien’s Xenomorph. There’s one more addition to the roster that a lot of players will be psyched for. Those who didn’t pre-order MKX before its April 2015 release date will finally have access to the four-armed brawler, Goro, as a playable character.

Along with the new MKX characters, the latest Kombat Pack will also let gamers give several classic characters a makeover. The Kombat Pack will feature new character skins for Kombatants like Johnny Cage (see below), Liu Kang, Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Sonya Blade, Kung Lao, and Kano.

Don’t start imaging bloody combos with Leatherface’s chainsaw just yet. While we now know everything that the second Kombat Pack has to offer, an official release date has yet to be revealed. The pack is set to drop sometime in 2016 though, and judging from the arrival of the trailer, we can’t be too far from seeing some fresh faces kicking the snot out of each other.

Factoring in the addition of previous bonus characters like Jason Voorhees, the new Kombatants bring the roster of playable MKX characters up to a total of 33.

Mortal Kombat X is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox OneMac and PC.
