As fight fans continue to enjoy the only recently released Mortal Kombat X, additional content has begun dripping in thanks to the Kombat Pack – which adds new characters and costumes. The first newcomer to join the game was horror movie icon Jason Vorhees, with plans for three more combatants to join the roster over the coming months in the form of Tremor, Tanya, and guest entrant Predator.
While fans salivate over the potential these fighters bring to the table, many still want to see axed veterans (or even additional guest entrants) added to the fray. By the sounds of it, that could very well be a possibility for Mortal Kombat X fans.
The longstanding director of the Mortal Kombat franchise, Ed Boon, was recently given a question on Twitter about whether or not he could officially “de-confirm” a Kombat Pack 2. Much to the delight of gamers that have been itching at the possibility to see more fighters added to the game, Boon simply stated that he could make no such claims.
While this certainly isn’t a confirmation that more downloadable content will be coming to Mortal Kombat X, it’s a the sign that many fans were hoping for. Given the fact that hackers have been able to suit up as previously unplayable veterans that appeared during the course of the game’s campaign, it’s looking likely that access to more characters could very well be en route.
As for whether or not a second Kombat Pack would be built up of solely established brawlers or feature yet another guest fighter is up for debate, but there’s certainly no shortage of potential candidates for inclusion. Fan-favorites like Baraka, Smoke, and Rain have been given the cold shoulder this time around – setting aside their appearance in MKX‘s story – so there’s little question that they could be considered front-runners.
Still, with only four characters making up a Kombat Pack, it’s hard to determine which beloved deliverers of obscene violence would make the cut. Only time will tell if NetherRealm Studios plans on offering more DLC for its latest fighting game, but given how well Mortal Kombat X has sold thus far it would be surprising if Warner Bros. Interactive didn’t plan on cashing in on its recent success.
Mortal Kombat X is currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game is currently scheduled to arrive for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 later this year.
