During the ESL Mortal Kombat X Pro League season 2 finals over the weekend, NeatherRealm Studios teases fans with a quick look at Triborg’s fourth variation: Cyber Sub-Zero.
After going dark for a few months, NeatherRealm Studios surprised fans with a trailer for Kombat Pack 2 during the Game Awards, which includes four additional characters for their popular fighting game, Mortal Kombat X. One of the characters, Triborg, is actually three legacy robot characters from various past games all rolled into one. Thanks to its three variations, fans will be able to use fan favorite characters Cyrax, Sektor, and Cyber Smoke through the three different variations of Triborg.
This past weekend during the ESL Mortal Kombat X Pro League season 2 finals, NeatherRealm community specialist Tyler Landsdown and designer Derek Kirtzic teased the crowd with a surprising and very brief look at a fourth variation for Triborg which is none other than Cyber Sub-Zero. Like the other variations, this frozen robot does feature moves from his human counterpart, including an ice slide along with the ability to throw the famous ice ball. New to the character however is a deployable ice drone, ice bomb, and a move which shoots an ice laser from his chest.
While it’s not known how players are able to access Cyber Sub-Zero at this point considering all characters feature only three selectable variations, many are speculating that this new form can be selected from a special character skin. Until the game and downloadable content launch in March, fans will have to continue to speculate.
Even with four variations now in tow, the now oddly named Triborg joins Bo Rai Cho, Leatherface, and the Tarkatan Xenomorph in the upcoming second Kombat Pack for Mortal Kombat X. This is more than likely the last bit of downloadable content for the game, as players can either choose to purchase just the pack or grab everything that has ever released for the game in the Mortal Kombat XL complete edition.
Unfortunately, both Kombat Pack 2 and the XL version, which includes all released content, won’t be arriving on PC. So far, a specific reason hasn’t been given as to why the PC version is being skipped, though considering the rough state in which the game launched on PC, and that a different developer was brought on to handle that version, things start to make a little more sense. In addition to Mortal Kombat X, Warner Bros had a rough 2015 in terms of their PC offerings, which includes the abysmal launch state and current version of Batman Arkham Knight.
Are you excited to see Cyber Sub-Zero return as a fourth form of Triborg? Let us know your thoughts below in the comments.
Mortal Kombat X is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC players. Kombat Pack 2 and the XL version of the game arrive March 1 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
