While the base Mortal Kombat 11 character roster is fairly extensive, featuring 24 new and returning fighters, players are still excited to expand their combat options with additional DLC characters. Indeed, the Mortal Kombat 11 DLC fighters are of great interest to many, and even though there are still a number of them to be revealed, several MK11 DLC characters are now officially confirmed.
To note, a Mortal Kombat 11 DLC character leak, which occurred before the game was even released, looked to confirm nine of the MK11 DLC fighters. Since this leak surfaced, the Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack characters that have been revealed by NetherRealm Studios suggest that this leak is, at least in part, accurate. That said, only the characters that have been officially confirmed by NetherRealm will be included in this list.
Shao Khan was a Mortal Kombat 11 pre-order bonus, and thus players that purchased the game prior to its launch were given immediate access to this fighter. That said, fans that that did not pre-order can still add Shao Khan to their MK11 rosters, as he is now available as a purchasable DLC character.
Shang Tsung is the first MK11 Kombat Pack DLC character, and he has been available in the game since mid-June. Prior to his release, a Mortal Kombat 11 Shang Tsung trailer showcased the DLC character's ability to transform, and now players can experience his powers firsthand.
Nightwolf was confirmed as an MK11 DLC character at the end of May, and, since then, Mortal Kombat 11 director, and series co-creator, Ed Boon, has made several references to Nightwolf on his official Twitter account. This has led some to believe that Nightwolf will be the next Mortal Kombat 11 DLC character, but that is not confirmed at this time. Update 8/22: The early access release of Nightwolf occurred on August 13.
The Terminator T-800 was confirmed by way of a Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack trailer that released on August 21, 2019. His release date is set as October 8.
Sindel was confirmed to be forthcoming DLC for Mortal Kombat 11 at the same time as Nightwolf. A release date for Sindel is not currently known, but a recently revealed render of the MK11 Sindel gave fans their first look at how the character will look as a Revenant. Update 8/22: The Sindel release date has been confirmed as November 26, 2019.
The Joker was confirmed by way of a Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack trailer that released on August 21, 2019. His release date is set as January 28, 2020.
Spawn is the first officially confirmed Mortal Kombat 11 guest fighter, and many fans are certainly excited to see this legendary comic book character as MK11 DLC. While no renders or information on Spawn's release date have been made available, he was announced with Nightwolf and Sindel, which may mean that more information is coming in short order. Update 8/22: The Spawn release date has been confirmed as March 27, 2020.
As previously mentioned, a number of these characters were accurately included in the Mortal Kombat 11 leak from earlier this year. As such, fans may be able to look forward to seeing the likes of Fujin, the Joker, and the Terminator in MK11 as well. However, without official word from NetherRealm, players should continue to consider these potential Mortal Kombat 11 DLC characters as unconfirmed at this time.
Mortal Kombat 11 is out now for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One, with a Stadia version in development.
