Scorpion Vs. Predator? Sci-fi Monster Rumored as Mortal Kombat X DLC

Carl Weathers' Colonel Al Dillon is also a reported character for the Mortal Kombat X Predator DLC.

Who is the greatest sci-fi monster of all time? If you answered, Alien or Terminator, you're wrong. The Predator is obviously the universe's most deadly, fearsome, hunter. The dudes bred a race of horrifying, species-destroying Aliens just so they could have worthy prey to hunt. So why aren't they in more fighting games? Good question, and it's one that Warner Bros. is reportedly going to answer. According to a report received from Video Gamer, a Predator DLC bundle is coming to Mortal Kombat X some time in June.

The report states that alongside the legendary hunter, Colonel Al Dillon - portrayed by Carl Weathers in the original film - will also be added as a playable character. The pack will reportedly launch in June, though we don't have any more details on pricing or even what else it may contain. No word on Arnie's inclusion yet, though it seems a bit strange to include Dillon without Dutch.

To add some credibility to the rumor, in July last year, creative director Ed Boon tweeted the Scorpion/Predator mash-up image you can see above, with the caption "Predator in MKX would be so sick!"

If true, it won't be the first time characters from other universes have featured in Mortal Kombat. 2011's Mortal Kombat, for example, featured God of War's Kratos and Nightmare On Elm Street's Freddie Krueger as guest characters.

It would certainly be quite sick to be able to play as the Predator in Mortal Kombat. And you know what? While we're on the topic of sci-fi monsters, having Alien and the Terminator in there also wouldn't be too bad...
