Predator Mortal Kombat X DLC release silence

By Alan Ng - Jun 19, 2015

It has been a long time now, since we saw Predator teased for the Mortal Kombat X Kombat Pack. So far we have had Tanya and Jason release from the pack, but fans are waiting patiently to hear when the Predator Mortal Kombat X DLC release date will be.

Some had hoped that NetherRealm may launch Predator as an E3 surprise, but sadly that hasn’t happened yet. The silence from the developers also means that we don’t even know if Predator will be next to come out for the game, or if Tremor will be next leaving Predator as the final release.

Something tells us that it will be Tremor next, as it makes sense to save the best till last, but hopefully we’re wrong on this and Predator is coming sometime this Summer.

We can see that fans are constantly asking daily when Predator is coming to MKX, but so far NetherRealm are not taking the bait. We haven’t even seen what Predator looks like officially in-game – the closest to this has come from an unofficial render which appeared online recently.

The Predator should be coming with the MKX ‘Prey Pack’ DLC, which will also include the Carl Weathers skin as Jax among other items. Hopefully NetherRealm’s silence is an indication that they are hard at work to make Predator the best DLC character from the pack yet.

We know there’s a lot of anticipation for the Predator and NetherRealm won’t want to risk criticism given how famous this character is.

Are you getting bored waiting for news on when the Predator will be out for MKX? Let us know your thoughts on this and don’t forget to take a look at a potential Predator move set.

    Play Arkham Night instead…. Lol…. But seriously can we get less of a wait fit the DOC you had no problem gutting from us gamers when it first came out…. Hell The Witcher 3 has been out about a month on consoles and has already released 10 free dlc packs….

    I was going to get this game anyway, but was super excited about Jason and Predator. By now, I have everything else in the krypt, and am no longer excited about Predator, and after seeing this article, I don’t care anymore. I paid extra for this game to get the ‘big’ edition. The only thing I can say is that with games being dissected, and special offers being made to every big box retailer with exclusives so they can get some kind of a leg up on sales, I’m done with this. I will wait until a year later and buy game of the year editions off craigslist. I’m tired of game studios dangling rancid, ant-covered carrots and screwing the people that keep them in business.

    • Jake Hunter

      Good damn amen bro

  • Taj Woods-Sutherlin

    Where is Noob? Where is Shang Tsung? Great game. But they’re missing some great characters. I think Noob would’ve looked amazing especially with next gen capabilities. and I agree. It would have been nice to see more skins…

    • Fabian McGee

      Can noob really have enough move types to make 3 variations….plus they have 25 characters do u really need more

      • Jake Hunter

        It’s the xbox one , not the xbox 360 , they should put everyone in it?

        • jake hunter is a homo

          Its better to have 25 plus DLC. They make the game to earn money not to make you happy.

      • Mk1sub

        I agree on missing characters. Noob and smoke and the cyborgs being gone blows. Idc if it’s because of the storyline or not. There just aren’t enough characters I and many other players care enough to want to learn. As of now I only play 2 non dlc characters. If smoke, Noob, cyber sub, sektor and cyrax were in the mix I’d play them too. And I don’t understand why netherrealms didn’t keep all the old dlc characters like rain and freddy. That would have been even better.

      • Taj Woods-Sutherlin

        To be honest, I’d much rather have throwback characters like Noob, Shao Khan, and the cyborgs than these new characters. I don’t mind adding a few new characters to the roster. But when you add them and then exclude so many iconic MK legends in a beautiful game, it makes me scratch my head. I would have loved to see Shao Khan on next gen. Are you kidding me? Noob would look amazing and I never even played with him alot.

        • Handsome, Wealthy and Black

          Couldn’t agree more, we need the old characters, they made MK!!!

          Homo Kung Jin, cassie cage (who’s the hero of mkx wtf!), jackie briggs, are some family sitcom bs characters, if your adding new characters make them demons, cyborgs, etc. not this corny crap! And don’t drop out the old ones I dont care what these little fag fanboys say about the story line, you can keep them in the game without putting them in story mode!

        • Taj Woods-Sutherlin

          PREACH!!!! thank u! I’m thinkin, why in the world is cassie cage the hero? I hated story mode. the gameplay is still amazing (and I see room for them to have added a lot more to it) but the story was absolutely horrible. SMDH

  • SephirothduLac

    I see a lot of the same comments here so I’ll try to keep this within their span. First, yes Predator is slated to be next. E3 has delayed any new news from MKX because it’s a week long gaming convention so we have to be patient while people have their fun. Next, that being said I enjoy the thought of having predator and other guest characters in the game PROVIDED that they don’t take away from other characters inclusion. I feel like this MK was disappointing as they didn’t add the amount of klassik and revamped characters from the series. I felt the actual three variations of the character wasn’t that different at all. I’d rather have more fatalities, stage fatalities, brutalities, animalities, friendships, and the like. The fatalities in this one aren’t as good as 9 the body creation for each character wasn’t rendered unique as mk9 was and hence the game suffers from too much similarity and not enough variation. A klassik roster would have sufficed to make the fans happy with a few new characters to round the roster then and only then should guest characters be brought in. Third, Faction Wars… useless. Utterly useless. And that’s disappointing because instead of rewarding only those that have the most people in them they should have factored in other things into the faction War. Faction war exclusive screen backgrounds more than just the one when you pick. Faction War costumes for achieving faction goals with characters. Alternate reality storyline with factions such as Sonya as a Black Dragon member, Kano as a white lotus member and Raiden as Brotherhood of Shadow. Fourth, Bring in some of the new characters they made and old favorites, Mokap and Meat are part of the history so YES don’t be ashamed. hsu Hao and Drahmin and all of them could have been remade into something good. You did it with Stryker now prove it’s not a fluke. Fifth, They have waited too long. My enthusiasm for the dlc is waning and to be honest I’m tired of waiting. I’ll pick up the dlc when it drops play Klassik mode, play a 100 wins with the character and move on. Sadly I think Boon really didn’t do a good job handling it. He should have been releasing something every week even if it was only skins. and finally…. If you can’t recall that Johnny Cage was killed in the events of MK3 then brought back in Trilogy or that his true name is Johnathan Carlton Cage (Legal name change) Or that there are more Shokan then just the “main three” (Goro, Kintaro, Sheeva) or remember Khameleon and Chameleon are two entirely different characters then you have no right to call yourself knowledgable enough with the MKU to have an opinion on who should be in it. You haven’t been here from the beginning you maybe a fan but you aren’t a diehard so keep your arguments to yourself. I’ve probably forgotten more about MK than all of you cause I’ve been here since the first one. I love MK but the fact is the game is good but it could have been better. I just wish WB would let them do MK then add more characters later in DLC Guest Packs.Guests for DLC MK characters for regular game and much MUCH more of them. Plus they don’t even give the new people skins? What’s up with that?

    • Ian Sieben

      what do you mean by “new characters”? because the “new characters” i’m thinking of is characters like cassidy cage. also this one was supposed to be the start of a new era of fighters, so don’t be bashing until you know the whole story. if you’re as old as you clam you would know this. but over all I agree with what you are saying.

      • blastedRasta

        *Cassandra Cage

        • Ian Sieben

          pretty sure its cassidy, I haven’t heard anyone in MKX call cassie cassandra. but i’m not gonna argue over something so dumb like this, also I was making a point.

        • Jake Hunter

          It’s Cassandra

        • Nathan ‘Dubbage’ Palmer

          it is Cassandra Cage ffs play the story

        • blastedRasta

          pretty sure your wrong. ur saying dont bash til u know the whole story… u dont even know character names

        • Ian Sieben

          For the last time I AM MAKING A POINT AND I AM NOT ARGUING OVER THIS, Something that’s pathetic. here’s something for you to answer though, why can’t anyone make a point anymore on the internet without people like you and the others below commenting?

        • blastedRasta

          Sounds like ur arguing to me lol. Just admit ur wrong

        • Ian Sieben

          Still waiting for an answer to my question, and no i’m not arguing. its hard to tell over the internet but I’m actually smirking at this “conversation”.

        • blastedRasta

          u been smirking for like 3 days? good for you lol dont know how its relevant still. I just corrected you on ur mistake. n ur question is stupid, ur basically askin me why ppl correct u when ur wrong… its cos ur wrong. u must be pretty dumb not to have figured that out for urself. but we knew that when u started schoolin sum1 on the story when u didnt even know character names. and say ur not arguin all u want, but u keep replyin and ur the only one usin capital letters…

        • Ian Sieben

          how is my question stupid? and yes I keep replying because you keep responding that’s how a conversation keeps going, duh. I use caps when I’m pointing something out. plus you point out that I’m stupid but you aren’t spelling the words out fully so your point is invalid. also Yes I have been smirking for 3 days because I go back through and read the comments that people are replying with (especially you). now you’re probably wondering why I go back through and reread the comments, answer is simple so I can see if anything I said didn’t make sense. another thing if I’m so stupid then please do explain why I’m an All A and B student in college and have been like that since I was in high school?

        • blastedRasta

          no1 cares about ur grades kid. u dont know nethin about mkx thts obvious. i corrected u cos u were wrong, u cudve jus said thanks for teachin u somethin. n u need a hobby if u spendin ur time lookin back thru comments smirkin. n dont try school me on grammar when u dont start ur sentence off with caps. and bad spelling doesnt make a point invalid, thats like sayin dyslexics opinions dont count. and if u keep replyin with a point tht contradicts mine, by definition u are arguin with me. u shud know tht as an A grade student.

  • Ninjitso

    Why don’t they release MK Armaggedon pack and then everybody’s happy

  • Jon Frey

    Can’t wait to play predator in mortal combat x

    • jon frey is god

      TIGER UPPERCUT

    • Justin

      Oh you will be waiting alright

  • assface

    Cant wait for predator

  • El Landron

    Ok I know this is a bit extreme but hear me out here… How about we make Jesus as a dlc character? I mean in this generation we are currently living in, what extreme has not been done already?

    Seriously put Jesus in a toga with wooden slippers I want Jesus.!!!!

    • od3

      His fatality could be he buries you up to your neck in the sand and stones you to death for adultery.

  • mrjoeyloke

    I want tremor actually! I hope he doesn’t play like goro though…

    • assface

      You mean jax

      • ASSFACE2

        You eat FLAX

  • Jeremy Dean Chism

    There are quite a few warriors missing from this roster but if they would add all the originals along with the current roster then this truly would be the tightest MK game ever.Dont get me wrong though cause I’m definitely not dissapointed.Great game.

    • Fabian McGee

      Ya but its a lot of work for making characters too

  • Ray Ameer Flowers

    Shang

  • Isaiah Mata

    Early in july is my. Guess

  • Rob Landrum

    I stopped playing mkx over.a month ago . They took to long . Off to better things keep your dlc. Lol

  • Non Sequitur

    I bought the game in large for the Predator. But releasing it after 3-4 months in a simplistic fighting game such as this, no one’s going to care.

  • Happy James Hussein

    the thing is this happend with Evolve they teased and teased and teased the new maps to hunt on as dlc for months and by the time they finaly did release it after far to long id Platinum Trophied the game and when they added it i havnt even botherd looking at it they made us all wait far to long and since way better games have come out, they need to hurry the hell up with Preditor before we all get bored of waiting and move onto Batman Arkham Knight ! otherwise its just wasted DLC !

  • Matthew Castillo

    They need to have a cyber pack with all the cybernetic ninjas

    Cyrax, Sektor, Smoke, Sub Zero, Hydro, and Unit 5

    • Happy James Hussein

      yes mate i am soo down with that i was gutted when i found out Sektor and Cyrax wernt in MKX

      • Matthew Castillo

        Yeah me too its a shame because they were so awesome and I was looking forward to seeing their brutalities

    • Ian Sieben

      the only reason why they weren’t in this one is because it takes place AFTER the events on MK9, an <> they all (smoke (whose NOT a cyber), sektor, cyrax, cyber sub zero. not sure about hydro or unit 5) died in the campaign.

      • Matthew Castillo

        Smoke was a cyber in MK3 and if that’s so why is Johnny in this one he died several different ways throughout Mortal Kombat stories he’s not even supposed to be in this one since he’s “dead” so Cassie cage shouldn’t even exist your logic is invalid man

        • blastedRasta

          MK9 was a reboot and ignored all previous games, but MKX picks up where MK9 left off

  • thedevil

    Next Kombat Pack needs to have Smoke and Noob Saibot.

    • Ian Sieben

      they are thinking about a story dlc pack after they finish with the other 2 new characters.

    • Nathan ‘Dubbage’ Palmer

      smoke is needed

  • Bane Hardy

    Only real reason i’m holding out on this game is because Freddy Kruger and classic MK characters isn’t in it. Not saying Jason is a badass slaser but would be awesome to see tons of Jason vs. Freddy fights. Predator is a pretty cool fighting character and I do agree that it adds variety to the game. But I would like to see more classic MK characters return hopefully in a future DLC.

    • YungStar Jc

      Stop talking the classic characters are in the game all of them

      • thedevil

        Not all of them: Smoke, Noob, Kabal, Baraka, Sindel, Cyrax, Sektor…Of course out of those 7 Smoke, Noob, and Kabal are the only decent fighters.

        • Crona Gorgon

          I agree, but being a person who started with Deception (still have it, too!) , characters like Baraka and Rain should too:) I also like characters like Nightwolf, they should make him playable as well as the others;) I was so happy to see Kenshi back, he’s my favorite!

        • Crona Gorgon

          I agree that they should be added, maybe also make the dark characters playable:) I started with Deception, so being the Kenshi user I am, J was very happy:D A story pack would be nice, also one like what you are saying

    • thedevil

      Freddy DOES NOT need to be in MKX, this isn’t a f**king horror game!

      • Madara HxH

        Smoke is technically in the game as Eninma or Eninra whatever be is.So is Sindel,kabal,Baraka.Not playable but they are in it.I would assume Rain,Baraka,Sindel would be part of the next pack as they were fightable in Story mode.

  • King William Da III

    Fuss all this…..WHEN WILL WE SEE A FULL LENGTH MORTAL KOMBAT MOVIE???! Like that trailer we seen or webisodes years ago??? Its time.

    • Handsome, Wealthy and Black

      They have a pretty awesome series on youtube 2 seasons deep so far – but each episode’s only 10 minutes :/

      They should defo make a full length series of the entire timeline, if its done right it’d end up much better and detailed then a film could be

      • King William Da III

        Yeah i watched both seasons….loved them both,especially season 2 with the fatalities in them

    • thedevil

      Not until they get a decent director and screenwriter. Someone like Wilson Yip would be good, they need a Game of Thrones meets Ip Man type of movie, with some Blade Runner Earthrealm thrown in.

      • King William Da III

        DAMN THAT SOUNDS EPIC! And i dont toss that word around alot.

  • VenomMelendez

    Actually, they already said Predator is next. Tremor comes last.

  • Handsome, Wealthy and Black

    Any true MK fan will want to see Baraka, Rain, Sindell, Nightwolf, Stryker, Kabbal, Sheeva, Kintaro,Motaro with (centaur version), Shao Khan, Noob Saibot, Shang tsung, Smoke, Cyrax and Sektor, who cares about Tanya and meat really? What’s next, Mokap and that inside out guy with the spiky club??

    Give us old school brutalities, animalities, friendship, babality, arena fatalities, ability to knock opponents onto alternate stages.

    Mortal Kombat had so much more to it then it does now

    • David Grimm

      You call yourself a true fan but you don’t like Tanya and you can’t spell Sindel or Kabal? Get over yourself. The only DLC we’re getting is character packs and costume packs, so don’t hold your breath for any of that.

      Mortal Kombat 9 came out 4 years ago but it’s practically identical to MKX. We should have tons of modes, tons of mechanics, and tons of characters yet somehow we’re left wanting.

      The fact of the matter is Ed Boon has become greedy. We’re getting a fraction of the content found in older games for the same price. Warner Bros. is going to milk this series to death and he won’t do a damned thing about it.

      • Handsome, Wealthy and Black

        So because I dont like shitty Kitana knockoff Tanya and spelt some names wrong I’m not a ‘true’ fan? Lol go suck a fat one Mr Grimm choke on it.

        I do however agree with the rest of what you said

        • Chris

          You coudnt even remember drahmins name

        • David Grimm

          No, but it implies you’re an idiot and destroys your credibility, as does your petty insult. Tanya has always fought differently than Kitana, so I’m left wondering why you would call her a knockoff. I think you may be confusing “true fan” with “elitist moron” when you describe yourself.

        • Handsome, Wealthy and Black

          Lol elitist? I just come from the generation where games came with a lot more bang for buck so am a little disappointed, MKX gives us hardly anything in comparison especially if you aren’t willing or able to purchase the DLC.

          I turned 25 the other day so maybe i’ve finally hit the ‘your games/music/etc. is all a joke, nothing like it was in my day’ age lol

    • thedevil

      Meat is NOT coming back, it was a joke Ed made on Twitter, but the dumba** game news feeds bought into it. Meat is one of their worst fighters and Ed hates him, no way he would make him DLC. It was a joke hinting about another Kombat Pack.

      • Jerry Celotto

        You can’t trust anything Ed Boon say these days even if Ed Boon hates Meat?

    • Chris

      You are right I don’t know why they hold back

    • Don_Yeetle

      Baraka isn’t diverse enough to have 3 variations, neither is Stryker(my favorite character) or Kabal. Sheeva would be a waste since Goro is already on the game and she’s just a cheap copy of him. Goro already has a Kintaro variation. I think Rain and Sindel are confirmed as later dlc. Shao Khan is dead, as is Noob Saibot. Sektor is confirmed dead in the campaign. I’m surprised Cyrax wasn’t included though. Shang Tsung might be dlc based on his mentions in dialogue and character endings. Old school brutalities wouldn’t fit in with this game, they would look too out of place to have a character explode from a chain combo. Babalities should have returned, I thoroughly enjoyed those. Friendships would be a nice troll touch. Stage fatalities should have returned. I’m fine without stage transitions, they add nothing imo

      • johnnyboy

        Dude brutalities are in the game what u talking about

        • Don_Yeetle

          He said the old school brutalities and I’m saying they wouldn’t fit in this game

      • Ray Ameer Flowers

        Stage transition was great when midway was creative. It’s like they put all their eggs in mk9 and injustice and mkx pale in comparison

        • Don_Yeetle

          The old mk stage transitions was just uppercutting someone to a different stage and I personally can do without them because they don’t add anything

      • Handsome, Wealthy and Black

        Loads of characters in MK have died but are back, if they wanted to they could’ve used their imagination and made it work, it wouldn’t even need to go with the story line, just characters to play with. As for Diversity, I kinda see your point, but that shouldn’t be an obstacle for the makers of the game they just need to be creative.

        I have no idea why you think old school brutalities won’t work, unless you mean because the newer gen combos have been so easy in comparison to MK1/2/3 that not many would be able to pull them off. The new brutalities are still a nice addition but they should’ve been called something else and left brutalities as they were.

        Stage transitions were the smallest point and they don’t add much but they do add a little to the fun for me, they could have developed it deeper then just the uppercut and made it sort of like DOA or bloody raw where you can knock them through walls, etc.

        Remake of bloody raw, that would be decent lol 😀

  • Humphrey Felemenga

    Away from the characters coming soon, how possible is it that ‘WB’ can update the android version with more missions for MKX?

  • Erik Verse Borgen

    “The Predator is rumored to be coming with the MKX ‘Prey Pack’ DLC, but we’re yet to get confirmation on this.”

    Actually, that is not a rumor. Impeccable game journalism we have here. All these “Harold” sites are whack.

  • Jerry Celotto

    I think Predator should have not been in the game at all it would not be Mortal Kombat X It would look more like a Predator game within itself and if you are playing as Predator you would not see his Physical form unless you were fighting against him than you would see his physical appearance.

    • Italiano810

      Just like Spawn and Kratos presumably? Predator is going to be badass. Hes the ONLY reason i bought the kombat pack!!!

      • Badbitch

        Um… You could have just bought him separately. So shut that excuse up.

        • Italiano810

          I had no i dea they came separately so piss off. Go suck start a .45

      • Ben Fuller

        Predator is the only reason I brought the game lol. Wish I had waited til he was released lol. Thought when I re ordered he was gonna be in at launch lol

      • Jerry Celotto

        Spawn, and Kratos should had not been added in the Mortal Kombat franchise either nor should Predator because once he is release you will be looking through Predator eye’s to fight your opponent but when you fight against Predator than and only than you will see his fighting style. unless you had a mirror match than you will see both Predator body before the fight begins once it starts you be looking through Predator eye’s only. Oh sure every now and than you might see Predator body while fighting but that to be expected.

        • Italiano810

          Your english sucks!!! Lol cant even make out what you’re trying to say

        • Ray Ameer Flowers

          Are you stupid.

    • MVPREME

      This comment hurt my head. People are dumb.

    • David Grimm

      ….What?

      • Jerry Celotto

        Look Mortal Kombat was an original game before they started putting in Movie Character’s That was until they started to put Freddie Krugger into Mortal Kombat 9.

        • David Grimm

          The reason why they started doing that is because of Warner Bros. Every movie character they’ve added had a film coming out. For MK9 a Freddy movie came out the same time he was added to the game.

          A Friday the 13th movie is coming out soon and so is a Predator movie. They are basically added to the game as an advertisement.

          I really believe NetherRealm would rather add other Mortal Kombat characters instead but they don’t have a choice since WB owns them.

        • Jerry Celotto

          I respect what you said Just that games & Movies are not the same that all.

  • Fabian McGee

    Predator IS actually coming next…dont misinform people
