Mortal Komabat X is coming soon, that’s for sure say sometime around April so we got a few more months to wait but before then, MK fan-boys are super-interested in hints that the next-generation series of the hugely popular video game would feature Predator (yes, you remember Predator) and comic villain Spawn as playable characters.
The major gists is coming from VideoGamer’s unnamed source, who says “the DLC pack will include the sci-fi villain and Colonel Al Dillon, the CIA agent killed in the original movie. Carl Weathers, the actor who played Dillon, has allegedly offered his likeness for use in the game, too.”
Though currently, Warner Bros is yet to debunk or make a clear announcement for DLC plans for Mortal Kombat X. However, in July last year, creative director Ed Boon retweeted an image (pictured above) of Predator superimposed onto the Mortal Kombat X key art, along with the words “Oh snap!!”.
Moving on to Spawn; the comic book anti-hero’s creator has revealed that developer NetherRealm Studios has a deal in place to include him if they wish.
Todd McFarlane revealed to GamerFitNation that he has made a ‘short deal’ to allow the character to be added to Mortal Kombat X.
“It’s up to their discretion. I gave them a window of time, so I’ll just leave it to them to do what it is that they want,” he said.
“Eventually, they’ll phone me and they’ll go, ‘Hey, we want to use him here. Is that OK?’ Well, technically, it’s OK because we’ve already said yes. They just are letting us know.”
While it sounds far from concrete, we hope the folks behind the new game seal the deal. Predator and Spawn fighting the likes of Sub-Zero and Liu Kang is a dream come true for MK fanboys.
2011’s Mortal Kombat also featured guest characters from other universes, including God of War’s Kratos and Nightmare On Elm Street’s Freddie Krueger.
Mortal Kombat X launches on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on April 14th.
