Mortal Kombat 11’s Kombat Pass has slowly been building out its roster over the summer. Shang Tsung and Nightwolf are already out, but now we know the full list of characters coming through the end of 2019 and into 2020.
Image Comic’s Spawn is officially joining the roster after Netherrealm Studios released a new teaser trailer for Gamescom 2019. This information had leaked several times since the game’s initial release.
Mortal Kombat veteran Sindel is also making her return to the series after being relegated to an NPC in Mortal Kombat X.
One of the earliest rumors was proven correct as The Terminator is about to make heads roll when he finally joins the roster. Instead of the classic Terminator 2: Judgment Day appearance most people expected, we’re getting Arnold Schwarzenegger’s older appearance from the upcoming Terminator: Dark Fate as his default look.
The most surprising of the roster additions was Batman’s most formidable foe, The Joker. With a unique new look that screams crazy and dangerous, the Clown Prince of Crime rounds out a stacked cast for the first Kombat Pass.
Unfortunately, for many fans, these cool announcements were ruined nearly four months ago by data miners. They discovered various pieces of code for each of these characters in the Nintendo Switch copy of the game. However, noticeably absent here is Ash Williams from the Evil Dead, who data miners also confirmed in those leaks.
The rumor floating around right now is that Warner Bros. stepped in and swapped Ash with Joker as to help market the upcoming Joker movie, which releases on Oct. 4. It doesn’t line-up with the movie’s release, but Warner Bros. wanted to lean into the character, somehow. This change means Ash is likely going to be included as the first fighter for Kombat Pack Two next summer.
Here’s the current release window for all of the fighters in the Kombat Pack.
- Shang Tsung: Released
- Nightwolf: Released
- Terminator: Oct. 8
- Sindel: Nov. 26
- Joker: Jan. 28, 2020
- Spawn: Mar. 17, 2020
For fans of the different iterations of the characters getting included, there is a high chance WB and NRS have taken that into account. They have likely added some of their iconic looks as alternate costumes. Now whether or not you have to collect the parts or purchase them is yet to be seen.
