Final Mortal Kombat 11 Guest Characters Revealed, Release Dates for All DLC Fighters Announced


by in Fighting Game News | Aug, 21st 2019

NetherRealm Studios released a new trailer today that revealed the identity of not just one but two fighters that are coming to the Kombat Pack DLC pass that players can purchase right now. With this announcement, we now know the identities of all of the Mortal Kombat 11 guest characters.

Terminator T-800 Guest Character Announced

The first of the guest fighters to be revealed is none other than Terminator T-800 who features the likeness of the actor Arnold Schwarzenegger himself. This reveal comes as, ultimately, no surprise since there is a highly anticipated new movie in the Terminator franchise on its way later this year.

The official reveal trailer for the full roster of Mortal Kombat 11 guest characters

Terminator: Dark Fate is the latest entry in the series of movies and looks to bring the series back to its roots in a way. It releases this November so it comes as no surprise that Skydance and Paramount Films would want to promote the character as much as possible and in as many ways as possible.

In fact, the announcement of Terminator T-800 being playable as one of the Mortal Kombat 11 guest characters isn’t the first announcement of its kind. A Terminator crossover with another video game Gears of War 5 was announced earlier this summer as well.

Terminator T-800 is described in the official press release from NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. as a cyborg assassin sent back in time from a post-apocalyptic future. He is nearly indestructible and possesses superior technology, fighting abilities, and artificial intelligence capabilities that make him the ultimate killing machine.

But the Terminator T-800 announcement wasn’t the only one to be released today as part of the new trailer. We also know the identity of the final guest fighter who will be joining the roster and he is yet another crossover character but one that fighting game fans will likely know very well.

Joker Mortal Kombat 11 Guest Fighter Announced

The final member of the Mortal Kombat 11 guest characters is none other than the Joker himself from the DC Comics franchise. This is far from the first time that the Joker has been in the Mortal Kombat series or a NetherRealm Studios game in general but his announcement is welcome nonetheless.

The general look of this Joker incarnation is, unsurprisingly, a little different from what we’ve seen from him before. Of course, we only got two shots of him in total in the trailer so it is possible that he will look different in the game itself. Regardless, he has a more youthful look to him and a more back-to-basics style.

The Joker is also wielding a cane in the trailer that is featured prominently for a moment so there is a possibility that the cane will serve a central focus for the crazed super villain when he joins the roster. He is described in the press release as ruthless, incredibly dangerous, and reveling in creating chaos.

The Joker will bring a deadly and unpredictable combat style to the latest entry in the Mortal Kombat series when he releases as one of the Mortal Kombat 11 guest characters. This is far from his first appearance, too, as he was a playable fighter in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe and the Injustice games.

Full Mortal Kombat 11 DLC Fighters List

The Joker and Terminator T-800 join the likes of the other four DLC fighters that have been announced previously for the Kombat Pack. The full roster of all six fighters include:

  • Shang Tsung
  • Nightwolf
  • Sindel
  • Spawn
  • Terminator T-800
  • The Joker

Shang Tsung was the first fighter to release for the game as DLC, releasing several months ago in the game. Shang Tsung, like Terminator T-800, also featured the likeness of an actor and in his case, featured the likeness of the actor and voice who portrayed him in the 1990’s film adaptation.

Nightwolf is another classic character from the series like Shang Tsung who already released in the game. The Native American warrior is also available to play right now. Beyond those two already released fighters, we didn’t know when the others would release.

Thankfully, we do now as NetherRealm Studios didn’t just announce the final two Mortal Kombat 11 guest characters but also the release windows for all of the characters that will be joining in the game as part of the Kombat Pack. Interestingly enough, the newly announced Terminator is up first.

All Mortal Kombat 11 DLC Fighter Release Dates

Mortal Kombat Sindel Transparent

Terminator T-800 was just announced but that doesn’t mean he’s going last as he will be the next fighter to join the game’s growing roster. He will release in all of his Schwarzenegger glory on October 8, 2019 in early access period.

After Terminator releases, it will be about a month or so until the next fighter is released in the game and that will be the final classic character Sindel. Sindel is an original character from the series past introduced in the third game and the last time she was playable was in the 2011 Mortal Kombat reboot. Her release date is November 26 for early access.

The game will then take a break for a couple of months until the Joker is ready for release. The mad clown prince will be releasing in 2020 on January 28 in early access. From there, fans will have to wait another two months or so for the final DLC fighter release date.

Oddly enough, despite being the first guest character announced in the Kombat Pack, the popular comics character Spawn will be the final character to release in the game. Spawn will release on March 17, 2020 in the early access period.

If you are looking to get some of these fighters or all of them, there are a couple of different options that you have at this time. If, for some reason, you’re interested but don’t have the game yet, you can just buy the Premium Edition of the game for $99.99 suggested retail price.

That Premium Edition comes with the base game itself plus the Kombat Pack that comes with all of the six fighters listed above. Otherwise, if you already have the game, you have two options available to you. You can purchase the Kombat Pack for $39.99 SRP and get all six at a discounted price overall.

But if you’re only looking for one or two fighters like Joker and Terminator or Spawn, then you might be better off purchasing them individually. However, if you want like half of the DLC fighters, you might be better off just buying the whole pack so that won’t be wasting any money.

The difference between the Kombat Pack and buying them individual beyond price difference is that the Kombat Pack also gets the early access period to each fighter. Everyone who wants to buy them individually will have to wait a week after those release dates above to play as them.
