Predator MKX not working, can’t download say users

By Alan Ng - Jul 7, 2015

As we told you earlier, today is Predator day for Mortal Kombat X. However, it appears that many users are having problems actually accessing the character, saying that the Predator download is not working on Xbox One and PS4 even with the Kombat Pack installed.

The character is supposed to be available, with a new MKX update unlocking the content after a previous patch already provided online compatibility so that everything would be in place.

However, many users are saying that they can’t download Predator in MKX on Xbox from the Marketplace or PS Store as it is not appearing in the Kombat Pack in-game.

The same issue appears to have also hit community member Maximilian, despite having already installed the new MKX update on Xbox One.

We have heard some say that Predator will be unlocked in MKX once NetherRealm applies a ‘hotfix’ to sync up the character with the MKX July 7 updates.

If so, let’s hope it happens soon as right now there’s a lot of Kombat Pack owners asking why they can’t download Predator. Let us know if this is happening to you at the moment and if you have found a fix.

    I purchased predator for mkx on ps4. The file was downloaded but the character does not appear on the list of available fighters. I do not what is happening and neither how to fix it.

  • ZephySB

    So i THOUGHT i had the same problem, it turns out, for PS4 idk about xbone, that when you get the update, your supposed to “purchase” the charcater, but its free if you got the kombat pack. i feel kinda dumb…

  • Justworking247365

    I feel so bad for everyone that does not have the Predator pack yet. This is very unfortunate. Just as unfortunate as Mr. Iwata dying. My goodness. :_( #ripiwata

  • Jeanette Hancock

    Gotta say i’m really not impressed. I purchased the Kombat Pack the day the game released as it was heavily implied that it’d be immediatly available for access – and I really wanted to play as Pred.

    So here comes Pred day and according to my download list it’s been dl’d and installed, yet still no available to play, just that blacked out shadow face. I’m using PS4.

    Given the amount of cash we spend on these bloody games, I really dont’ think it’s all that much to ask for a purchased product to be available once payment has been made. It’s just plain rude!

  • Jayy

    YOOOOO WHY TF I DNT HAVE PREDATOR I PAID FOR KOMBAT PAK AWHILE AGO I HAVE JASON AND TANYA BUT NO PREDATOR WHT AM I WAITING ON THIS IS REALLY PISSING ME OFF IVE BEEN PAID FOR SO I STILL HAVE TO WAIT????? I IM NT UNDERSTANDING IM ON 100000 RIGHT NW👊

  • Jamie King

    I installed Predator/Prey pack but only skins and on the side of the Kombat Pack it says “Install Predator- 0 GB”

  • Ninji Starbust

    8pm east coast US
    Nothing
    so we all get a buncha new skins and characters for this fail.. right?

    • Montano929

      Haha they would never do that, but it would be amazing

    • Teevintv

      They have screwed us since day 1 release of this game, pay for a pack that you had no avaible characters until weeks later. Its all about the $ now since Ed Boone has teamed with WB

  • Teevintv

    Still not even showing a predator/prey pack either wtf WB I know u can fix a easy glitch. Doesn’t take game designers hours to fix a glitch in a character you have had ready for months.

  • tremorx

    Seriously why give people the run around and knowing fans are already pissed that the majority of the good characters from mk9 are gone and give us a shitty roster and then taking too long to release predator and tremor. Wtf ed Boone your literally making dislike mk all around.

    • Justworking247365

      Don’t MK. Hate the lazy MK team!

  • Jr hunter

    I have the predator / prey pack, but not predator. I go to my kombat pack on the “manage game” tab and predator is nowhere to be found. He’s not even on the kombat pack in the xbox marketplace. And when i go to the character in-game it says “available now through the kombat pack” yet when I select it, he’s still not there…. It’s about to be nighttime here in Colorado. I just hope he’ll be available when I wake up tomorrow morning. I was really looking forward to playing him today.

  • Joe

    So, yea predator not working on my Xbox One

  • Agustin

    There’s no predator in my screen what a sad day😔

  • Dylan Hulen

    I think I may have found the answer to MKX Predator Xbox One not releasing:

    Some idiot at Microsoft maybe set the date to 7/8 to release.

    • Justworking247365

      XD XD XD XD XD Well that would still be considered false advertisement on #warnerbrosgames and #netherrealmstudios side.

  • V.I.C.

    Guys I know how to get the Predator DLC for PS4!!! Make sure you install the Predator/Prey Download pack AND the Predator character itself (I know it sounds dumb, but it honestly worked for me). After you install the PREDATOR CHARACTER (Along with the Pack) then close the application and reopen. It should work then. Also I live in New Jersey, U.S. and the time is currently 7:19pm (incase anyone was wondering)

    • V.I.C.

      Please reply and let me know if it works!

      • Justworking247365

        Are you playing as him now!? :)

    • tremorx

      How do u uninstall the kombat pack?

  • Ed Beauchamp

    7pm in Philadelphia and still no predator, got the other stuff tho. The free fatalities and scorpion without issues.

    • Montano929

      Yeah same here, I have the predator /prey pack but no predator

  • Joe Caron

    4pm in Nevada and still no Pred DLC!!

  • Jamie King

    It’s 7:06 in Western Australia July 8th still nothing

  • Matt C

    July 7 2024 11:59 pm…

    Still no predator…

  • ChazLa

    7:00pm U.S. still nothing.

  • Teevintv

    Very pissed that all these issues since Warner brothers are involved.

    • Justworking247365

      Probably knew about the bugs just like for Batman Arkham Knight and Witcher 3 PC versions lol! What dumba$$e$!

  • Israel Ruelas

    This aggravates me!!!! Im on the Xbox One and the Predator will not install.

    • Montano929

      Same here and it’s horrible because I see him on the load screens

  • fsjal

    7:43 pm in brazil, no predator yet

  • Da Prince

    6:24 pm in Virginia happy to get Predator but it’s not showing up in my kombat pack help plz gamertag is only1kang

    • Justworking247365

      Gamertag is VXXXX!

  • 50KalKruci

    My son went to single player and highlight predator and purchased from there now we have him…….. oh happy day

    • Justworking247365

      So I’m guessing…. sarcasm and no Predator. :(

      • Soldier0fWisdom

        he might be serious, i did the same thing and it worked.. went to single player, highlighted him, and purchased him from there.

        • Justworking247365

          YES!!!

    • Lester Flame Leo Cunningham

      U lucky

      • Justworking247365

        He was being sarcastic.

  • Me

    3:26 in wa state. Got it to download but still cant play as predator

  • Sounami

    00:24 in Holland and still no Predator?!

  • gayboy

    6:23 in NY and still no Predator, this is really letting me down, and making me regret buying the Kombat Pack….

  • 50KalKruci

    Same here just got home from work, ps4 is telling me “no content available or is no longer available for purchase” not to jump ship here but mkx is making for a nice coaster about now

  • baker3001

    6:15 pm in Ohio and still no predator. Xbox1

  • Thtguy89720

    5:12pm in Indiana and still no predator smh.

  • Teresa Warrick-Wilcher

    So…..after paying for the pack specifically for the early release of the characters I feel like we should be given some type of store credit……xbox1

    • Brody

      Damn straight

    • Justworking247365

      $30 credit? HELL YEAH!

    • Israel Ruelas

      For real!!!

  • Dukesv

    I downloaded it, installed it but the Predator is still shady..

    Whats interesting though is that the other two skins from the predator pack (jax as the black dude and infrared skorpio) are available for play..

    Just no Predator…

    (Ps4)

    • Justworking247365

      Please update us.

    • Israel Ruelas

      Same on the One.. At first I thought it was Xbox only having this problem. Now I see ps4 is having the same issue. SUCKS man.

  • Roberto Falla

    And if your having issues going to the Playsation store cause it says it’s under maintenance just keep trying to click on it, you’ll get in after a few tries.

  • Roberto Falla

    So I think I might have figured it out on my Mk X when I start the game and press triangle to access the Playstation store I got a message saying there is no content, it might not be for sale yet, or no longer be for sale. So I closed the game application and went to the Playstation store from my home screen and I went to search and I typed in Mortal Kombat then I scrolled down to Predator and I clicked download and it installed him.

    • Justworking247365

      Are you playing as him NOW!? :)

      • Roberto Falla

        Yes haha

        • Justworking247365

          Awesome! Everyone…LIKE THE COMMENT SO EVERYONE CAN SEE IT!!!

  • Roberto Falla

    Having same issue but I’m trying something to see if it works.

  • Cock_Nose

    Why is everybody trippin so bad over this? JULY 7TH IS NOT OVER YET!!!!!! They never said “predator will be released 12:00am July 7th.” No specific time. I’m positive he will be out today. Things happen in the production world that nobody knows. Glitches, overloads, dlc problems etc. if you want to start crying, cry tomorrow when July 7th is over with. Until then…. BE PATIENT!!

    • theTruth

      are you really going to play that idiotic notion? look at pretty much EVERY OTHER DLC EVER. the DLC always drops when it hits 12:00 AM everywhere in the world (or nation, depending on how large the game is). the fact that the community paid 30$ for a late releases is just UNACCEPTABLE. people have a right to be pissed.

      • Jb King

        I know i do and i have abused that right today

        • 50KalKruci

          I want to abuse rights too!!!

      • Montano929

        Very true

      • Cock_Nose

        Look, dude I’m just as pissed as the next guy because I was looking forward to playing as him more than any other character. But the “we need compensation” or the “I’m never buying from netherrealm again” is a bit immature and over reacting. I’m assuming those who said they stayed up til 12 or 2:30am don’t have a job and have ALL the time in the world to play him when he comes out later today. I’m positive it will be out today. When the 8th comes then you may start with your “demands” and crying. I’d rather get him later on today than on the 14th. Just sayin

  • Elliot Mullen

    I hate this, have been waiting since day one, and now i have to watch people play as him that could actually get him.

    • Jb King

      Same

  • flyboyE

    Did anyone try deleting and redownloading the kombat pack for xb1

    • Montano929

      Yeah it didn’t work

      • flyboyE

        smh this is rediculous 4:50 p.m. in michigan

    • Patrick Springer

      No joy as of 6pm eastern. In my opinion, the problem is probably around the dependent fix already released to use Predator. I bet most of us are missing one of the patches with XBox and is why some of us can see him and yet not use or download him since it appears that parts of the Predator release for XBox spans multiple patches. Who knows, this crap could be on the Microsoft / XBox Live side of things; hard to say. Regardless, it still sucks.

      • Justworking247365

        Can’t blame Microsoft this time. This is all Warnerbros games and Netherrealm studios doing. Even PC users are having issues!

    • Justworking247365

      Doesn’t work sadly. :(

  • Lisa stewart

    Same problem in OK. Its 3:46 pm and no Predator.

  • Tabiaus Russell

    I can’t download him either on the PS4. But i think it’s the PSN store that is under maintenance or something. That’s some bs. Cause what sense does it make to have bought the Kombat pack to get them early but u don’t get them cause u can’t download the content because of some maintenance bullsxxx….

    • Jb King

      Dude NRS needs to get their crap together

      • flyboyE

        amazing how i only had this problem with predator alone

        • Jb King

          Same here all other characters i couldnt care less abt worked perfectly fine

        • flyboyE

          this is really frustrating i dont understand this BS

        • Jb King

          Me either

      • Justworking247365

        You would think they learned after filing for bankruptcy at Midway in 2008!

  • Flabergasmic

    Ah, so this is the special treatment us Kombat Pack holders recive? BuggyBroken pack realeses? Even after we give them 30$ ontop of the original 60$, and our loyalty, we still have to deal with this unexusable mess. Some sort of compensation needs to be given as an apology to the fans who purchased the Kombat Pack and had to deal with these pathetic inconviniances. Along with an imediate patch or “hot-fix”, so that we can play the long-awaited character we have been waiting for.

    • Jb King

      LOL

    • Gam3ovaries73

      Uhmm I don’t know if you know, but these aren’t bungie’s forms, so take the complaining somewhere else, they’ll eventually fix it soon

      • Justworking247365

        You got to be kidding me lol!

  • Montano929

    Lucky few were able to get him I know SevereEnergy was streaming predator last night, he lives in California

    • Jb King

      And trU3Ta1ent was also usingnhime and hes from UK

    • Justworking247365

      Well…. are these Youtubers telling gamers how they got him!? Any work arounds?

  • Luke Keller

    This is literally the only reason I got the Kombat pack! To play predator EARLY!!! This is annoying!

    • Jb King

      Indeed

      • Luke Keller

        This is crazy

        • Jaylen Montgomery

          Agreed

        • Luke Keller

          I was up all night waiting on that thing and he never came!

        • Jb King

          Me too

        • Luke Keller

          Don’t see the point in getting it early now! I hope it comes out soon

        • Hunter Empey

          He comes out the 14th without the kombat pack

        • Jb King

          Yea

        • Luke Keller

          Ik I have the Kombat Pack. When they say he will be here on the 7th with the Kombat Pack he should have been here at 12:01 am!

        • Jb King

          I literrally no kidding checked at 12:01 on psn last night

        • Luke Keller

          Same

        • Luke Keller

          So it’s not working on both ps4 and Xbox one?

        • Jb King

          For psn users the maintenance is supposed to be over by like 7PM i think i read but dont hold me to it

        • Jaylen Montgomery

          Wow that’s a long time

    • Jb King

      Indeed

  • Tony

    Does anybody know if they had to delay it … Again ?

    • Jb King

      No they didnt because i was watching a stream earlier of a guy playing with predator

      • Tony

        Ah ok

        • Jb King

          But, he was in the UK

        • Tony

          Oh that sucks for them

        • Jb King

          Yea

    • Justworking247365

      It wouldn’t surprise me. Shoot… if this continues… I will just get a credit and buy something else.

  • Jaylen Montgomery

    Psn store is under maintenance is anybody having this problem

    • Jb King

      I am

      • Jaylen Montgomery

        So it’s not just me. Netherrealm always messin up

        • Jb King

          Ikr this crap is soo annoying

        • Jaylen Montgomery

          Yeah it is

        • Jb King

          Netherealm studios had one job and the screwed it up

    • Tabiaus Russell

      Yes

  • Montano929

    Hopefully we get compensation for this

    • Jb King

      Yea hopefully even if its like 20 easy fatalities we need something

    • Hunter Empey

      We probably won’t

    • Justworking247365

      XD Nope. Its not happening. :(

  • Tony

    It is almost 4:00 still no predator

    • Jb King

      Same here in GA

      • Tony

        This is crazy they need to get it fixed

        • Jb King

          Indeed, how can they have such a popular game and when the most anticipated DLC of the year arrives we cant even download it

        • Tony

          Exactly they knew it was the most anticipated character and then that day comes when it comes out and they have issues

        • Jb King

          Yea, as Montano929 said we need some kind of compensation.

        • Tony

          Yeah at least something to while we wait it has been hours and I got the kombat pack day one and this is what I’ve been waiting for at they just butchered it

        • Jb King

          Same here i they also took away tanya from my roster so i cant play as her anymore until they fix it

        • Tony

          Wow this is honestly getting out of hand there are going to be people who just straight up sell it or even just not buy anything of netherealms again so if they don’t want that to happen they definitely need to fix it

        • Jb King

          Do u have PS4

        • Tony

          No Xbox one

        • Jb King

          Oh i have a ps4

        • Tony

          Nice I keep see ads for the kombat pack get predator early and it feels like it’s teasing me

          Lol me too predator is in my roster and it says press x to purchase and when i do it gives me the same crap

        • Tony

          #the struggle is real

        • Jb King

          Indeed

        • PancakeBatter98

          No there’s a fix for that part of it. Did the same with my Jason. Just Uninstaller Tanya, then reinstall and restart the game.

        • Jb King

          I cant i cant access the PS store

        • PancakeBatter98

    • Jb King

      And i try to go into the store through the game it says “There is no content. It might not be for sale yet, or might no longer be for sale.”

  • Lloyd Baker

    I have the Predator/Prey skins such as infrared, commando & carl weathers however do not have the Predator character itself.. however I did get my skins the day before so that is also glitched :S

    • Justworking247365

      Very blessed indeed. I lost my skins lol after I downloaded them through some weird glitch. XD

  • Bebe

  • Damien Hollowell

    I have the Kombat pack since day 1. Its july 7th 2:30pm. New york city time. All it let me do is get the new scorpian skin and easy fatalities. No predator or the 3 skins that come with it. Plus its saying on home screen that original scorpian skin is available too but nothing.

  • Tommy Unrated Dawkins

    It says to get predator download the kombet pack now but I already have it

  • jugglaj91

    The skins pack showed up for me but not the character itself. Then my game started freezing every few seconds on xbox one. Moving it all to my internal drive now. Also tried uninstalling and reinstalling and got nothing. Jason worked fine when he came out Didn’t bother with Tanya. Was really looking forward to this and even had a couple friends lined up to come over and check him out.

    • Focus wF

      Same thing with me. I’m on Xbox One and I was only able to download the Predator/Prey Pack but not Predator. Every time I try to play the game, it starts freezing. This better get fixed soon.

      • CubeAGoober

        At least you guys can download the skin pack, the only thing I can download is the scorpion kill skin

  • Rolando Santiago

    Not letting me download predator and i have kombat pack its really pissing me off that i bought the pack at shits not working right like WTF

  • Ramon Soto

    The same thing happened to me

  • Jr hunter

    Yeah, I own the kombat pack and for some reason I can’t download predator. Hope it gets fixed. I was really looking forward to playing him today.

  • James

      You shouldn’t have done that unless you have a hyper fast internet connection. Its the servers from Warnerbros games.
