Well, lookey what we have here. It seems like nearly everyone who was a goodie who died in the last MK game has a evil Shinnok-serving version of them in this game! Think about it. Jax, Kitana, now Kung Lao and Liu Kang!
Batman™: Arkham Knight will now launch worldwide on 23rd June, 2015. We're a developer that hates to make any compromises, so we are sorry to say this means it's going to be just a little bit longer until you can play the epic conclusion to the Arkham trilogy. As a reward for your patience and understanding, and to make the wait even more unbearable, we are pleased to whet your appetite with a new gameplay video of Batman™: Arkham Knight.
Thanks so much from everyone at Rocksteady for your continued support. We are working as hard as we can to make you proud.
First of all the Kombat Pack DLC was detailed... and as quite a few folks had guessed jungle hunter Predator is the second movie tie-in character alongside teen slasher, Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th. Tanya and Tremor round out the 4-character DLC pack.
Here's the reveal!
Along with the characters though, there are a lot of character skins! Below is a breakdown of what each pack contains:
Full Kombat Pack details are listed below: ● The Ultimate Horror Pack: o Playable character Jason Voorhees o Horror skins Vampiress Mileena, Kraken Reptile and Pharaoh Ermac ● The Klassic Pack #1: o Playable character Tanya o Klassic skins for Kano, Sonya and Liu Kang ● The Predator / Prey Pack: o Playable character Predator o Predator-themed skins Commando Johnny, Infrared Scorpion and Carl Weathers as Jax ● The Klassic Pack #2: o Playable character, Tremor o Klassic skins for Quan Chi, Jax and Kung Lao
Maximillian Dood covers all of this in his latest MKX video!
so that puts the total so far of playable characters up to 29, each with 3 style variations!
Returning: Ermac Goro Jax Johnny Cage Kano Kenshi Kitana Kung Lao Liu Kang Mileena Quan Chi Raiden Reptile Scorpion Shinnok Sonya Blade Sub-Zero Tanya Tremor
New Fighters: Cassie Cage D'Vorah Erron Black Ferra/Torr Jacqueline Briggs Kotal Kahn Kung Jin Takeda Jason Voorhees Predator
So that brings the amount of Returning characters to 19 and new fighters to 10... Contradicting Ed Boon's previous promise that the majority of the roster would be comprised of new blood.
Baraka and Rain have also been seen in the game, but we don't know in what capacity, whether they're playable or not - Fingers crossed we see more MK4 characters like Reiko though, he was cool!

The year is 1946 and the Nazis are on the brink of winning World War II. In an effort to turn the tide in the Allies’ favour, B.J. Blazkowicz must embark on an epic, two-part mission deep within Bavaria. Part one of Wolfenstein: The Old Blood - Rudi Jäger and the Den of Wolves - pits BJ Blazkowicz against a maniacal prison warden as he breaks into Castle Wolfenstein in an attempt to steal the coordinates to General Deathshead’s compound. In part two – The Dark Secrets of Helga Von Schabbs – our hero's search for the coordinates leads him to the city of Wulfburg where an obsessed Nazi archaeologist is exhuming mysterious artefacts that threaten to unleash a dark and ancient power.
