The Predator isn’t even the star of its own Mortal Kombat X trailer


Mortal Kombat X’s biggest new addition (due tomorrow) had its debut trailer, featuring plenty of nasty blade and laser-based gore, but some other cameos killed it in the new trailer. Read on for more info!

Hi all! Dave here. While I’ve resisted the allure of Mortal Kombat X for some time now, I’m afraid I might have to bite the bullet and buy it, thanks to the new trailer above (and the fact that the game’s apparently getting a deep discount on Xbox Live this week). Yes, I knew that the Predator would be a part of NetherRealm’s new fighter, but now that I’m seeing it in action alongside the newly skinned characters it’s going to attempt to de-skin, I’m excited. Namely, the fact that CARL WEATHERS AS JAX IS IN MORTAL KOMBAT X. Look!


That’s not me making a very obvious reference there, NetherRealm and WBIE even state in the trailer’s description text that the DLC will include “Commando Johnny, Infrared Scorpion and Carl Weathers as Jax.” There’s a quick glimpse of the other two (though I wish they’d change Cage’s shades to normal specs so that he can spout some of Shane Black’s jokes). And even though he’s been a playable character since launch, seeing Jason Voorhees tangle with another horror icon is a welcome sight.

  1. Wow Carl Weathers is alive? Very legit but what about Billy? He basically looks like a Mortal Kombat character and could roll with Nightwolf. May have to pick this up. “Long tall sally!”

  2. Good for Carl for lending his likeness… I wonder if he knows all of the horrible stuff that will happen to it though? There are plenty of face related fatalities alone, yikes.

  3. But what about Mac? MAC?! MAC!!!

    But yes, I can’t wait to play as the Predator and kill all my favorite Mortal Kombat X characters.
