Predator is here! Well, officially Predator will become available in July. Mortal Kombat X fans have been waiting patiently for the Predator DLC pack to drop since the kombat Pack announcement was made earlier this year.
A trophy hunter by instinct! As Predator enters the fray will the other Mortal Kombat X fighters be seen running for the hills? There are some serious trophies to be had from the Mortal Kombat X character roster.
The Predator joins Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th movie series) as part of Mortal Kombat X's add-on characters which is included in what's known as the 'Kombat Pack.'
NetherRealm have been dropping hints though, have you noticed any in the run up to Predators release?
In a recent download, Jax becomes privy to the Carl Weathers skin. When you apply the skin you will see this awesome Predator homage / Bromage sequence.
And check out this insanely cool Predator easter egg hidden within gun-toting Erron Black's arsenal.
Over the course of the past 3 months fans have flooded the internet with Predator related speculation. What will he look like in MKX? What Brutalities will he have? Will he come fully equipped with shoulder cannon and spear?
Well today, some of those questions will be answered as well as the age old question of who would win in fight between Predator and Friday the 13th's slasher Jason Voorhees.
Watching the gameplay I found myself jumping for joy every time I saw the Predator perform one of his famous movie moves or display one of his iconic traits. I had my check list and thus far NetherRealm have ticked every item.
We saw the cloaking ability being used and the Predator was not shy about using those wrist blades. We even get the see the classic spinal cord being ripped out.
The fatality that we were privy to even included the use of the Predators smart disk. Hopefully further gameplay will include full decapitations and heads placed on top of his Pred spear. Watch The Gif fatality on our Facebook page.
Of course Predator wouldn't be Predator without his Pred roar! I want to start all my fights in Mortal Kombat X in exactly the same way he initiates the fight with Arnie in the first movie!
In my opinion, Predator is the best addition to the game thus far, from the gameplay we can see that Predator is now one of the most dynamic fighters Mortal Kombat X has to offer.
Come the official release, Predator will come equipped with three variations: Warrior (no mask), Hunter and Hish-qu-Ten. The DLC will also include new skins and costumes for some of Mortal Kombat X's other iconic characters.
Brutalities & Fatalities
Predator will come with 5 mighty gory brutalities and 2 killer fatalities. Each brutality is brilliantly named after some iconic movie moments from the Predator movies.
Time to Bleed - Jesse Ventura: "I ain't got time to bleed"
"If it bleeds" - If it bleeds, we can kill it - Dutch
"Anytime" - "Turn around! ... Anytime ..." - Mac (Scorpion moment)
This is surely going to be a messy affair. Spoiler alert, In the original Predator, fuelled by anger and still mourning the loss of his best bud Mac chases the Predator through the jungle and into the deep undergrowth. Mac crawls through the shrubbery when he notices the tri optic laser sight on his arm. He watches as it moves up his arm and train onto his head. The snap of the shoulder cannon follows.
"Ghostin us" - "You're ghostin' us, motherfucker."
This is the only fatality that we have been able to get our hands on. Predator impales the other fighter on his wrist blades, lifts them into the air then pulls out his smart disk and plants it deep within their brain!
