Mortal Kombat is no stranger to guest characters and Mortal Kombat X looks to continue that trend. Jason Voorhees is expected to appear as DLC in the Kombat Pack which is included in the Kollector’s Edition and Premium Editions of the game, or can be purchased separately for $29.99. The pack will contain three other characters, including two classic fighters and another special guest — which may or may not be Predator. But hopefully it’s not, because Alien is definitely better and can kick Predator’s ass.
Mortal Kombat X is set to release this April 14th on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.
What do you think of this reveal? Does Jason’s inclusion make you any more excited for the game? Are you ready to ch-ch-ch-ah-ah-ah all over the competition? Let us know in the comments!
