Mortal Kombat X players won’t have to wait long to get their hands on more characters and extras. Video game developer NetherRealm Studios has plans to release Klassic Skins Pack 2 for Mortal Kombat X this coming Tuesday. Besides that there’s a new character for the game named Tremor.
NetherRealm Studios’ Ed Boon revealed Tremor and the Klassic Skins Pack 2 upgrade this past weekend in a post on Twitter. The message itself only included a look at the character with the caption “Tremor is Reborn.” Boon didn’t provide any details about availability or pricing. A video posted to the Mortal Kombat X Community fills in the gaps.
The Klassic Skins Pack 2 upgrade will include upgraded looks for three of game game’s classic warriors. Among them is Jax and his cybernetic implants.
Termor will arrive with the Mortal Kombat X Klassic Skins Pack 2 on July 21st for anyone who purchased the Mortal Kombat X Kombat Pack. For $29.99 the Mortal Kombat X Kombat Pack gets users all the latest content for the famed fighting game for one low price. Buying the Kombat Pack makes more sense than purchasing all the Mortal Kombat X add-ons separately. Already there are dozens of different bundles including the Samurai Pack, Predator Pack, Kold War Pack and Horror Pack. Users can purchase the Kombat Pack directly through their console’s online store.
Each of these Skin Packs cost $3.99 on their own. As such, it’s safe to say that Klassic Skins Pack 2 will also cost just $3.99 when it arrives as a separate purchase. Separately, individual character packs for Mortal Kombat X cost $4.99.
It’s when users will be able to buy the Klassic Skins Pack 2 upgrade for Mortal Kombat X that might raise some eyebrows. Like Batman Arkham Knight, add-ons coming for Mortal Kombat X users are pushed out early for those who decide to spend more money upfront and purchase a pass for all of the game’s content. The Klassic Skins Pack 2 release date for those who don’t have the Mortal Kombat X Kombat Pack is July 28th.
In the official Tremor Trailer released on the Moral Kombat Community YouTube Channel we see Tremor in-game. Tremor isn’t a new character to the Mortal Kombat universe, but this is the first time users can play the game as him. As his name suggests, Tremor uses the earth and rock itself as both attack and defense. The battle opens with him using hand motions to throw rock at his opponent. His forearms start become encased in green gems as that trailer progresses.
For a Fatality Tremor has stalagmites grow out of the earth through the limbs of his opponents. He then covers his hands in rock and smashes their head in. Later he is shown making to large pieces of rock crush his opponent. No doubt, that is his other fatality. Tremor’s Fatalities are necessarily any more graphic than what we’ve seen from Mortal Kombat X characters in the past, which will definitely please players.
Mortal Kombat X launched on the Xbox One and PS4 back on April 15th. There are also Windows, iPhone and Android versions of the game. No doubt, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 users will get Tremor as part of the Kombat Pack whenever that version of the game launches. Originally, all versions of the game were slated for release at the same time, but the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions were delayed just before release. Warner Brothers still hasn’t provided a release date for those versions of the game.
