As promised by NetherRealm Studios earlier in the week, a new trailer released for Mortal Kombat X shows us the four-armed Goro in brutal action.
This is the first time that we’ve seen actual gameplay footage of him, and Goro’s come a long way since his debut in the first Mortal Kombat game.
Goro will be playable in the latest installment and is currently available as a pre-order incentive. Those who purchase the game early will be able to wreak havoc with him from day-one. As customs dictate, pre-order bonuses seldom remain exclusive and you can expect Goro to be made available later as part of a paid DLC package.
While that specific DLC has still to be verified, NetherRealm Studios has gone ahead to inform us about the schedule of some of the purchasable content packs.
The first batch – MaskMurder Pack – will release on April 26, after which a new pack will go live every two weeks. It will include Jason Voorhees, the masked machete wielding character from Friday, the 13th movies.
Next to follow is the Klassic Pack #1 on May 10, which will add Tanya as another playable character. On May 24, NetherRealm Studios will release the HunterPrey Pack, bringing the Predator to the roster. Finally, the Klassic Pack #2 will add Tremor on June 7.
Each DLC pack will also include several new character skins. Those who wish to purchase the Kombat Pack Season Pass will receive all of this content for a cheaper price tag.
Mortal Kombat X is scheduled to release on April 14 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game has been delayed for the last-generation consoles and will arrive later on June 2 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
