“The black dragon rises.”
It feels like only yesterday I got bored with Predator and went back to playing as Scorpion. Predator is awesome, of course, and that in no way reflects on him – rather, how good I am with Scorpion. It appears I’ll be hanging up my spear once more starting tomorrow, as the newest DLC character is making his debut in Mortal Kombat X – Tremor.
For those of you who dished out the $29.99 on the Kombat Pack, Tremor will be available tomorrow. Anyone who wants to buy him separately will have to wait until next Tuesday, July 28th.
The Kombat Pack includes four different DLC packs, with playable characters Jason Voorhees, Tanya, Predator, and Tremor each being available with one pack, along with extra skins.
Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon told Gamespot in March that Tremor was added to the roster due to fan demand.
“Character roster stuff has been a big one. There’s a really big push for the obscure character we have, Tremor, which I got so many tweets from players wanting that character,” Boon said. “It actually stood out to me as odd, but there was this swell of people pushing for it with petitions online and all of this crazy stuff, so we included him, and a big reason was because of fans yelling loud enough.”
Tremor originally appeared in 2000 in Mortal Kombat: Special Forces as the brown palette-swapped ninja.
