The Predator Joins Mortal Kombat X on July 7th

For those of you still playing Mortal Kombat X, the Predator will be joining the character roster on July 7th if you’ve already purchased the Kombat Pack DLC pass or you can buy the character separately on July 14th. Earlier this week, some X-Box One gamers realised they could inadvertently download the character a little early so there’s been a flood of gameplay footage on YouTube. Here’s one showing the Predator’s Fatalities, Brutalities and X-Rays:

There will be three different Predators to choose from. The Hunter Predator has a nice little gadget that stuns the opponent and hangs them upside down or detonates. The Warrior Predator features a self-destruct mechanism which damages your enemy while dealing a little damage to yourself. Lastly, we have the Hish-Qu-Ten which has the ability to fire plasma shots. The gameplay is actually pretty faithful to the character. The Predator can cloak, has heat vision and has his various signature weapons as well being able to bleed green blood when he’s injured. Look out for the character on July 7th.

Update 6/7/15: Official Trailer has been released:

IGN have got the release specifics:

Predator comes packaged in the Predator bundle, which also includes three skins: Commando Johnny, Infrared Scorpion and Carl Weathers as Jax. These will be available tomorrow, July, 7 for those who have the Kombat Pack, or purchasable for $7.99 from Tuesday, July 14. Anyone wishing to purchase Predator on his own will be able to do so from that date for $4.99, while the accompanying skins will also be available separately for $3.99.

    I'm glad that guest fighters are never canon because the idea of Predator using magic is a terrible idea. It works for MKX since Predator is a guest fighter and his ending can be view as a what if ending.
  2. The Alien Predator
    I want to make sure but the last scene in his ending, is he using an item to shoot that arc of magic or is he shooting it from his hand like a wizard?  :-\

    I think he's shooting it out of his hand like a wizard. Afterall, he did analyse sorcery in the ending. (I like the continuous plasma beam he was firing from his plasma caster, In some of the comics, Predators seem to do that.)

    But hey, it's lightning.  :P Remember when we discussed him shooting lightning out of his hands?

    I just saw a breakdown of the variations of the Predator. Surprisingly there are Yautja references there as well as there is an ability called Yautja Strike in the Warrior variation. So... we maybe getting both versions of the species in some way after all.

    There is a massive variety in characters/species. And every game makes a point of showing that the variants between the Aliens/Predator tend to have different styles so it's hardly a problem that's never been faced and dealt with before.

    There's a lot of material available to make a fun fighter.

    I doubt we'll see one but it'd be fun if there every was one.
  6. The Alien Predator
    entirely new and original characters, so I don't see what the problem is.
    What sense would make that?

    Besides, most MK characters have the same basic move set.  They're ALL just variations of the same character, and that series has endured for decades.

    Identical fighters like Ken, Ryu, and Akuma are pretty much mandatory for all Street Fighter games, the most successful fighting series of all time.
    What I'm saying is that every xeno and every Predator is pretty much the same, in terms of being a character. Ken and Ryu and Akuma can be seen like variants of the same moveset and fighting style, right, but their background and personalities are unique for each one of them.

    All xenos and predator have pretty much the same background, personality, history, they ARE all the same, just variants.

    Even the characters from that hypothetical Batman vs Superman video game based on 'Elseworlds' Superman and Batman, will have more differences.

    The same I wouldn't support the idea of a "Dragon Ball Z vs Street Fighter" video game, because, well, how interesting can the roster be if saiyans account for like 85% of their popular characters and all of them have like a 90% same fighting style. But at least DBZ characters have their own and distinct personalities.

    How about actually sharing some ideas instead of being a needless smartass?
    My only idea is that no one would want that video game, very little appealing outside of the hardcore Alien and Predator fan.


    That said, I have nothing else criticize further your idea, I think everyone has a right to have your own ideas :)


    Engineer, River Ghost, Reapers, four armed red tribal aliens (not Xenomorphs), technological bug things, some armoured technological alien, Dog-Aliens from Titan Book trilogy, some combat Synthetics, especially the huge robots that shoot plasma to destroy hordes of Xenomorphs.

    The EU is RICH with additional characters, even if many have a one time appearance, nothing stops them from making a comeback in this hypothetical game.

    Xenomorphs and Predators aren't the only alien life forms in the AvP universe. Imagine some of the trophy skulls in the Predator collection as brought back to be in this roster, you could make loads of interesting characters.

    There's plenty of uniqueness among the characters I listed, and there's no rule prohibiting entirely new and original characters, so I don't see what the problem is.

    I don't think you have a good handle on what "most people" would like.

    Petition time!  lol

    Stages:
    Derilect jockey room/ fall into egg chamber
    Queens lair on LV 426

    Lead works of fury
    Auriga
    Jungle w/ hanging skinned bodies on map
    Predator 2 ship trophy room

    Mr. Black's hunting site

    Just what I was thinking.

    The Pilot Chamber could be a level without corners; you just keep circling the chair. And falling to the egg chamber is an awesome idea.

    Right on.

    Space Jockey, Stickman, Newborn, Queen, Powerloader, Deacon, Ripley 8, an Android, a couple of different Aliens, a couple of Preds, and new characters derived from the trophy skulls seen in the films.

    There's your starting roster right there.  It shouldn't take a damn epiphany to realize this game is begging to be made.

    Big chap
    Cameralien
    The dragon
    AR warrior
    Newborn
    Engineer
    Trilobite (playes like shuma-gorath)
    Queen boss battle

    Jungle hunter
    City hunter
    P2 elder
    Mr Black
    Falconer
    Tracker
    River ghost

    Ripley in power loader
    Ripley 8
    Hicks w/ shotgun
    Dutch
    Vasquez
    Dillon w/ axe
    Royce

    EU
    Jeri
    Dean
    King alien
    Combat synthedic
    Berserker mech
    Ahab
    Red alien strain
    Herc mondo
    Machiko
    Broken tusk

    Stages:
    Derilect jockey room/ fall into egg chamber
    Queens lair on LV 426
    Lead works of fury
    Auriga
    Jungle w/ hanging skinned bodies on map
    Predator 2 ship trophy room
    Mr. Black's hunting site

    Oh the possibilities

    Perhaps this new MK will light a bulb over someone's head.

    You guys just jumped too early to conclussions... Hish Qu Ten, yeah, it contains the word "Hish" but otherwise we had no idea what that meant. Maybe Hish Qu Ten means "Not a Hish"  :laugh:
  13. RakaiThwei
    Can't see the video.  :-\

    That's because Netherrealm Studios and Warner Bros are on a crackdown on videos.

    Here is another video featuring the Hish'Qu-Ten style.. Doesn't seem to fight like a Hish. If anything, this variation is suited towards Hunter, which happens to be melee oriented. Methinks they mis-titled the styles.



    And here is a Predator fatality. A little disappointed with this one. Doesn't seem very Predator in that a good trophy was ruined.

  14. RakaiThwei
    The Hunter variation game play is now online. The Hunter is the opposite of what everyone expected it to be. Seems melee oriented and there are some AvP movie references there..

    Let's wait to see Warrior and the Hish'qu-Ten variations.
