Mortal Kombat 11 Reveals When DLC Characters Will Be Announced

mortal kombat 11 dlc character reveal

5/30 Update: An exact date for this Mortal Kombat 11 DLC character announcement has seemingly been confirmed. Original story follows.

Certainly, the Mortal Kombat 11 character roster is extensive, featuring 25 new and returning fighters. That said, some fans have definitely been eager to expand this roster with Mortal Kombat 11 DLC characters, and a number of rumors have fueled speculation about who these MK11 DLC fighters will be. While no official announcement was made about the Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack characters during tonight's Combo Breaker 2019 top 8, there is now indication of when such an announcement will arrive.

Specifically, Mortal Kombat 11 director, and series co-creator, Ed Boon has put out a tweet indicating that, "if all goes well," the MK11 DLC characters will be revealed "next week." Presumably, this means that the Mortal Kombat 11 DLC fighters will be announced before this last week of May is through, though the tweet being issued on a Sunday night could push the reveal to the following week.

For clarity, Boon's tweet states that NetherRealm Studios "will be announcing the fighters that will be joining Shang Tsung in Mortal Kombat 11’s DLC." This seems to suggest that the entirety of the Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack, which will consist of six DLC characters released over time, will be revealed, and this is certain to be exciting news to those that have been awaiting details on the DLC characters for MK11.

That said, there is no current indication of who the Mortal Kombat 11 DLC characters included in the reveal will be. A supposed MK11 DLC character leak, which occurred just before the game's release date, hinted at nine fighters, including Shang Tsung, but it remains to be see if these characters will be part of the of the MK11 Kombat Pack. To note, this Mortal Kombat 11 DLC character leak has recently been complicated further by a statement from the actor behind one of the rumored guest fighters.

Fortunately, it does not seem that fans will have to wait much longer to have definitive word on all of this, and the Mortal Kombat 11 DLC character release dates may follow soon behind their reveal. Until then, fans can enjoy continuing to speculate about what the future MK11 character roster will look like.

Mortal Kombat 11 is available now for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
