Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack - Nightwolf release date, Spawn, Sindel

Wait for them!

Mortal Kombat 11 has a pretty big roster if you don't include the unlockable Frost and preorder bonus that is Shao Kahn. However, there is a Kombat Pass available for the game and NetherRealm Studios has revealed which familiar faces you'll see out of six additional characters that you'll be able to play as later this year. A few days before EVO 2019, we got a bigger look at Nightwolf, including his release date.

Whether you're a newcomer or a veteran kombatant, there's plenty of things to know about Mortal Kombat 11. Head on over to our hub for everything you need to know which you can find in our Mortal Kombat 11 guide. I'd also recommend looking at our Mortal Kombat 11 farming guide for everything you need to know about farming resources to unlock stuff in the Krypt - which you can look at our Mortal Kombat 11 Krypt guide to learn more about. Finally, there's also our Mortal Kombat 11 fatalities and Mortal Kombat 11 brutalities for all those nasty finishers.

Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack guide

In this guide, we will explain what is in the Kombat Pack for Mortal Kombat 11, as well as how to purchase it if you are so inclined to buy it. You can purchase it directly from Steam for £32.99, €39.99, or $39.99.

Nightwolf release date - Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack characters

There are six characters confirmed to be in the pass. While not all of them have been revealed so far, there have now been four who have been identified and the other two are heavily implied in the trailer through some sound effects. These characters will also be individually sold when they're released, though the pricing for each one is not confirmed as of yet. Below are the confirmed characters in the Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack.

  1. Shang Tsung - 18th June 2019 (Early Access)/25th June 2019
  2. Nightwolf - 13th August 2019 (Early Access)/20th August 2019
  3. Sindel
  4. Spawn - yes, that Spawn from Todd McFarlane's comic series that appeared in Image Comics.

The other two characters are speculation, so we'll give the reasoning behind why we think this is the case:

  • Ash from The Evil Dead - There is a chainsaw sound effect and we've already had Leatherface in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre in Mortal Kombat X. That and Bruce Campbell's been tweeting about the game, even if one tried to quash the rumour.
  • Terminator - The drum beat towards the end of the trailer is eerily similar to the one from Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Whether it's Arnold's T-800 or the T-1000, that's unclear, but my money is on Schwarzenegger.

Note that one more character - Shao Kahn - is available separately and does not make up part of the Kombat Pack. He was previously a preorder bonus. Frost is also available to purchase separately but can be unlocked by completing Chapter 4 of Mortal Kombat 11's story mode.

Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack contents

In addition to the six new characters, you'll also get the following items. It's not clear how you'll be able to purchase the other

  • A week's early access to the DLC fighters. This is exclusive to Kombat Pack owners.
  • Seven exclusive character skins. This includes:
    • "Ninja Mime" costume for Johnny Cage which is available upon purchase.
    • "Klassic" Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Noob Saibot Skins (releasing with Shang Tsung).
  • Seven exclusive sets of gear.

Sadly, there are a couple of skins that are only available outside of the Kombat Pass, but are purchasable in-game. These are:

  • Scorpion - Gold Demon (Kollector's Edition only)
  • Skarlet - Kold War

This concludes our Kombat Pass guide, but there are plenty of characters that you can play as in the game currently. For everything you absolutely need to know about them, go to our Mortal Kombat 11 characters guide.
