Mortal Kombat 11: When is the Terminator Gameplay Reveal?

Last week, NetherRealm Studios revealed the release dates of four upcoming Mortal Kombat 11 DLC characters, the Terminator T-800, Sindel, the Joker, and Spawn, by way of an MK11 Kombat Pack 1 trailer. Indeed, this trailer confirmed that the Terminator will be the next fighter to join the MK11 DLC characters list, and he will do so on October 8. That said, NetherRealm has not announced when the first Terminator gameplay trailer from Mortal Kombat 11 will be shown, but the developer's pervious actions may provide a hint on this matter.

Specifically, Shang Tsung, the first MK11 DLC character, released in early access on June 18 , and the first Mortal Kombat 11 Shang Tsung gameplay trailer was revealed on May 31. When it comes to Nightwolf, the second MK11 DLC fighter, his early access release occurred on August 13, and the first official Nightwolf gameplay was shown on August 1. This means that there were 18 days between the Shang Tsung gameplay reveal and his release and 12 days between the gameplay reveal and launch for Nightwolf.

Thus, if NetherRealm continues to follow a similar schedule, fans may be seeing the first Mortal Kombat 11 Terminator gameplay footage around September 20 - 26.  As with Shang Tsung and Nightwolf, this is likely to come as a MK11 Terminator gameplay trailer, and indeed the release of this trailer may be just around four weeks away.

Furthermore, Shang Tsung and Nightwolf both were featured in dedicated Kombat Kasts, which gave in-depth looks at their gameplay prior to the release of these Mortal Kombat 11 DLC fighters. The Shang Tsung Kombat Kast occurred 14 days before his release, and the Kombat Kast that focused on Nightwolf's gameplay in MK11 took place 6 days before his launch. As such, it is possible that a Mortal Kombat 11 Terminator Kombat Kast will occur around September 24 - October 2.

While this is certainly not definitive, it stands to reason that NetherRealm will continue the trend established by the gameplay reveals for Shang Tsung and Nightwolf. These reveals not only gave a look at these MK11 DLC fighters' standard combat styles, they also showcased their Fatal Blows and Fatalities. Almost certainly, the Mortal Kombat 11 Terminator gameplay reveal will focus on these aspects as well, which many fans will definitely be excited to see.

Mortal Kombat 11 is out now for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One, with a Stadia version in development.
