While some Mortal Kombat X players already have access to noted serial killer Jason Voorhees, others will have to wait until next week to wield his trademark machete. To make that wait a little easier, renders of the other three announced DLC characters have made their way onto the Internet.
We’ve known for some time that there are big plans for the game’s DLC offerings, with the long-rumored addition of the Predator being confirmed as well as the addition of classic kombatants Tanya and Tremor. Tanya features in the game’s story mode, but thus far we haven’t had a good look at what these fighters will look like in-game.
Now, what looks to be the remaining trio’s final character renders has been leaked to the web. Since we know what all three look like normally, there are no great surprises, but there are a few interesting design flourishes that will be of interest to hardcore fans.
Tanya’s appearance is very close to how she looks in story mode, which might suggest that her render is slightly outdated — she was advertised in-game over the past couple of weeks, and the model used for that was given a few tweaks, like glowing eyes and slightly different attire. It’s unclear at this point which version will be used when the character is released.
Her fellow returning character Tremor looks quite different from his early appearances as a simple palette swap with the other ninjas. As well as his affinity with rocks being represented in his design, he also seems to have put on quite a bit of muscle mass since we last saw him as a bonus character in Mortal Kombat: Unchained.
Finally, the Predator looks almost exactly how you would expect if you’ve seen any of the movies the character appears in. However, it’s worth noting that it’s one of the skinnier members of the species — this might suggest that we’ll see a fast-paced fighting style from the alien warrior.
This first DLC pack looks set to keep the Mortal Kombat X community afloat through the summer — but fans will soon move on to the question of who’s next? Downloadable versions of story mode characters seems increasingly likely, but it wouldn’t be surprising at all if NetherRealm Studios has even more in store.
Mortal Kombat X is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game are expected to release later this year.
