When a fighting game sequel comes out, players are always anxious to learn whether their favorite characters will be playable or not. The next game from NetherRealm Studios doesn’t come out until September 14, 2023, but they’ve already revealed the first batch of Mortal Kombat 1 DLC characters. Will you be able to play as your favorite MK character in the upcoming sequel? Let’s find out!
Fighting games are going through a bit of a resurgence lately with new installments from well-established franchises like Street Fighter and Tekken. Of course, Mortal Kombat is also set to make a return with Mortal Kombat 1. The numbering may be a bit confusing, but it is the sequel to Mortal Kombat 11.
So, let’s dive in and see who will be included in the first wave of Mortal Kombat 1 DLC characters.
Who are the DLC characters in Mortal Kombat 1?
Mortal Kombat 1’s first DLC bundle will be a nice mix of familiar faces from previous MK installments and guests from other franchises. Here are the characters that will be in the game’s Kombat Pack 1.
- Quan Chi
Fighting game DLC characters is always a fun topic to follow since we end up with some crazy crossovers like The Walking Dead’s Negan being in Tekken or Darth Vader showing up in Soul Calibur. Mortal Kombat has always found guest characters that fit its ultra-violent gameplay and it looks like the upcoming sequel is keeping that trend.
Quan Chi, Ermac, and Takeda are returning Mortal Kombat characters, while Omni-Man, Homelander, and Peacemaker are comic book characters from Invincible, The Boys, and DC Comics respectively.
When will Mortal Kombat 1 DLC characters become available?
Though these characters will be included in one bundle, they will still be released one by one over a certain period of time. Homelander will be the first DLC character to be released, coming sometime in Spring 2024.
Further details regarding this bundle have not yet been revealed, but we can expect at least one more batch of DLC characters in the future since it is labeled as Kombat Pack 1.
