Title: Predator Coming to Mortal Kombat X?
Post by: Darkness on Feb 20, 2015, 05:05:10 PM

The Predator could soon be killing the likes of Scorpion and Sub-Zero in the upcoming fighting game Mortal Kombat X. A report on VideoGamer.com suggests the character will feature in a DLC Pack for the game in June along with Dillon, who was played by Carl Weathers in 1987’s Predator. The actor reportedly allowed them to use his likeness for the game. Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon has been hinting at the Predator’s inclusion since last year.

You may remember the Predator was also featured in DLC for Call of Duty Ghosts last year too. Mortal Kombat X will be released on April 15, 2015 on all platforms (minus the Wii U).

I want this to be true.. I really want this to be true but Ed Boon said that the Predator has a 36.8% chance of actually appearing on the game. Not to mention Maximillion Dood said it right, the Mortal Kombat and Predator franchises are owned by two different competing studios. And with Shane's Predator movie on the way, why would Warner Brothers want to promote for another movie belonging to a competing studio? Some food for thought there.

As for Carl Weathers lending rights to his likeness and Al Dillon appearing in the game.. I will laugh if he actually does appear in the game. Seriously, if he does appear with the two machine guns in hand.. I will laugh! Not in a bad way but rather in a happy and perhaps bewildered manner too.. But there is credibility to that rumor as Dillon sort of made an appearance as an alternate costume for TJ Combo in the Killer Instinct reboot game. So.. it's a possibility.

They apparently had Freddy Kruger as a playable character in the last one. And Jason is also rumoured for this game.

In regards to Freddy Krueger, he is an in-house franchise for Warner Brothers ever since that studio had purchased New Line Cinema. So really, Freddy Krueger wasn't too much of an issue to get into the Mortal Kombat reboot game. It's easier to get an in-house name franchise character than one who belongs to a different studio.

As for Jason Voorhees.. I haven't heard much rumors regarding him. I believe he now once more belongs to Paramount since New Line returned the rights of the franchise to Paramount when they did the Friday the 13th reboot/requel. So again.. different competing studios aren't going to want to cooperate too much with each other when it comes to promoting characters belonging to different studios.

I would think that their renders have gotten better post PS2/XBox era. Not to mention they're making their renders appear more realistic looking, even proportioning the female characters more closer to realism. So I don't think there is a lot to worry about.

Spawn is also rumored for MKX and the Kombat pack mention two guest characters. It's possible that the Kombat pack will have both Spawn and Predator. I doubt Dillon will be a playable character since he would be a solider type of character and won't feel special as a guest. My guess that he will show up in Predator's vs intro before the battle starts.

So far this rumor has no source to back it up. I will believe it until I see it.

I wonder why the Predator still hasn't appeared in any fighting games as a guest. Mortal Kombat, Soul Calibur, and many others where it could have been fun to play as. I definitely hope it'll be one of MKX's guests.

If it does make an appearance in MKX, the Predator needs to mimic the dialogue of other characters. I can already imagine it's intro vs Scorpion, where Scorpion nabs the Predator with his spear, says "Get over here!", the Predator cuts off the spear with it's wristblades, and then says "Get over here!" right back at him.

Agreed. Although while there is a low chance,  I would like the Predator's appearance, assuming the rumor's to be true, to at least be quasi-canon in MK lore. It would be nice to know that there is one more universe where Predators happen to canonically exist outside of the main Alien-Predator franchise. I mean the Judge Dredd universe does have Predators existing canonically speaking. And so does the long forgotten and abruptly ended Agents of Law series which Dark Horse did.

Freddy was awesome. "Fitting in" is so overrated.

Just for detail's sake, I'd really like to hear the announcer say "finish it" when the Predator loses. I also think The Predator should be a sub-boss, along with MK ones like Goro, fought at random like MK: Armageddon's sub-bosses.

All three of the Predator's variants should be based on Predators from the movie, like a "Super" one that adds the hounds and net traps to it's moveset, or one based on the Jungle Hunter where it's armed with nothing but wristblades and the plasmacaster, or a "Serpent Hunter" one that adds Chopper's large dual wristblades and Scar's Shurikens. A pity the Predator could only get three variants.

You know, if we actually did get Dillon as a guest, here's a variant idea for him: Single-handed, where he fights with only one arm. He use his severed arm as a melee weapon.

Dillon as a guest makes no sense since he won't feel special as a guest. He will likely have a cameo in Predator's vs intro similar how Moloch's head is in Quan Chi's intro. I wonder how the battle intros with Predator would work? I can see Predator vs. Reptile working like this:

Dillon is stand still then the Predator, cloaked jumps down onto the battlefield, then uncloaks himself and kills Dillon.
Reptile: You too can turn invisible huh?
The Predator raises it clawed fist into the air and roars into battle

or Predator vs. Kano:

Predator, cloaked jumps down onto the battlefield then removes his mask
Kano: You are one ugly motherf**ker!
Predator begins to roar into the battle.

Post by: DUB1 on Feb 23, 2015, 11:58:47 PM
I was being facetious when I suggested Dillon, Hellspawn28, though I really wouldn't mind him with my suggested variant.

I don't think Reptile would talk like that. Here are some ideas for Predator vs Reptile intros.

1) Reptile drops from above, behind the Predator who turns around, and Reptile decloaks. The Predator cloaks, then decloaks, to which Reptile snarls in shock.

2) The Predator decloaks, so does Reptile, who snarls, and the Predator roars as if to say "Come on!"

3) The Predator, already decloaked, pops out it's wristblades. Reptile says "You're not the Predator, you're the prey" and the Predator replays "You're the prey" on it's recording device.

The Predator vs Kitana
Predator: "This will be easy" (from Jade's MK9 intro).
Kitana: What?! How dare you use my friend's voice!
Predator: "Too easy"

The Predator vs Scorpion
Predator: "Get over here!"
Scorpion screams in rage and throws his spear, which the Predator dodges.
Predator: "It's official, you suck"

Just one more: Predator vs Goro.

The Predator shows off a trophy to Goro. Goro grabs the trophy with one hand and crushes it to powder, and smirks at the Predator while flexing his arms. The Predator roars with fury and pops out it's wristblades.

Well Predator did inspire things from MK like Sub-Zero's spine rip, both Cyrax and Sektor are inspire by the Predator design. Predator won the guest character poll next to Jason and Spawn. At least we get to see Predator fight Jason!

Post by: JungleHunter87 on Mar 21, 2015, 01:41:42 AM
I hope this information is true. If it is, then my question would be: which predator are we going to see in-game? Will it be Jungle Hunter, City Hunter, Scar, Celtic, Wolf or an MK X universe predator design? I know that it has been rumored that Carl Weathers gave rights to his likeness too NeatherRealm Studios or at least WB games. So that leads me to believe that we'll see a Jungle Hunter inspired design at the very least.

I was worry that they would be using Scar from AVP or Mr. Black from Predators. I'm glad that they went with the classic look from the first Predator movie. Also Predator theme outfits are plan too.

There's three Predator variants: Warrior, Hunter, Hish-Qu-Ten.

Not too pleased with the decision to use the Hish and not Yautja. I would not have minded if he didn't use either, as much as I prefer Yautja but I wouldn't have minded if the named the last one as Bad Blood or something.

Not too pleased with the Hish.  :-\
Title: Re: Predator Coming to Mortal Kombat X?
Post by: Magegg on Jun 26, 2015, 05:40:50 PM
Honesty I think Hish fits much better with the MK concept than Yautja. They're evil, they're conquerors and they use black magic? Sounds like a perfect fit for me. Also, who wants to see a Yautja suffering? I better behead a goddamn Hish, ha ha.

But I still think Boon is retconning/refunctionalizing/tweaking the term "Hish" for this one...

Maybe Yautja = Jedi, Hish = Sith, ha ha ha.

But at the end of the day it's not a serious effort. Nor an actual Predator entry.

I thought you didn't like either when compared to the films. If anything, you liked the South China Sea interpretation best. At least from what I remember. I haven't read that version but I know a lot of people liked it, and I know I would like that version too.

Quote from: Corporal Hicks on Jun 27, 2015, 08:17:08 AM

I was personally hoping that the Hish stuff would be buried long since after it's release. You'd think it would be considering that a lot of current EU material such as the NECA toys, the miniature game, AvP: Evolution even use the term Yautja. Even Fox used the term Yautja in a featurette for PREDATORS. So Fox endorses that version and told Dark Horse to stop using the Hish.

Unless there is something going or it could be that Boon just grabbed whatever book had a Predator on it and he just happened to get the Hish version by chance.

But.. I know it seems like I'm ripping on the Hish stuff, and Hicks.. I want you to hear me out here.. I know you see me often ripping on PREDATORS a lot, as I intensely with all my being hate that movie but I think you will be pleasantly surprised to hear this. So hear me out.. I wouldn't have minded it if they went with calling the third variation "Berserker" or something along those lines. It would've stuck more with the films, and leave things more ambiguous to what this Predator is.

Yes.. I'm saying I wouldn't have minded if they referenced THAT movie with the third variation.. I'd be okay with that. A lot more than this Hish stuff. Mrrph.

Exactly. It's just there for fun and to promote an iconic character.

Just like in the Call of Duty map with Predator. It doesn't add anything to the Predator franchise. It's just there for the fans that like the character.


And Rakai, that's a good idea with the Berserker. But I think that Boon needed a "species name" as an excuse to show a Predator with no mask. He was strictly avoiding the new Predators and going for the classics.

I think you would have been much happier if he did "Hunter, Warrior, Classic" or something but he used "Klassik" a lot in the game so that too is out of the picture. Maybe "Unmasked".

But whatever, what's done is done. It's Boon's game afterall and you don't have to agree with his choices. Look on the bright side though, I'm sure you still like the Predator's other two variations right?

True. South China Sea's interpretation of the Predators is my favourite from the novels. But next to that, the Flesh and Blood Hish are my favourite. They're very different to how Forever Midnight did the Hish and are far more in line with my vision of the Predator - being in it for the hunt, the thrill, the kill. But none of the bollocks from the FM.

Just pick a different one and get on with it. It has absolutely no bearing on the franchise or the game.

I haven't seen the gameplay yet, so I really can't say. I'm surprised a trailer hasn't been released yet.

I will say this, Warrior and Hunter.. I'm fine with but if the Hish mechanics show a reference to a Kill Gland, or the moves are referencing a kill gland, I'd probably say so. But until then, I have to see the gameplay.

I've only heard speculation. Most speculation is that Hunter will be focused on long range attacks, kind of like how the Predator in the first movie seemed to rely on the shoulder caster, and would be stealth oriented. Close quarters would be downplayed. Warrior is speculated to involve more melee type weapons such as the wristblades and combi-staff, and close quarters would be more focused.

But this is all speculation and until we see the gameplay and trailers.. That's all we can do.

Funny that you mention your dislike or Yautja.

Because like I told Rakai, the description describes this Predator as fighting for the "honour and thrill".  :P

I think both interpretations offer something interesting to Predator lore.

Yautja expand on a culture and language while Hish adds some cool technology such as mind control and ships with cannons powerful enough to destroy all life on a planet.

Now combine those traits (leave out the slavery and gender changing), and you have one scary Predator race that is not interested in conquest, but killing just because it can... got a problem with them taking trophies out of you and wanna go to war? Say hello to Exterminatus.

That's something I love about Preds, when they get serious, they are real scary.  ;D All that hunting's just for fun, God forbid they wage war on you...

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..

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.

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:

Hish-Qu-Ten means "people who take territory".  :P

Look above where it says Predator. It's the Hish variation.

Fair enough. Didn't notice that.

Honestly, why can't someone just make a straight up 1 on 1 AVP fighting game?  Seems like a no brainer.

Introduce other aliens like the Engineers and some others from the comics.

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.

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

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.

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.

How about actually sharing some ideas instead of being a needless smartass?

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.

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

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.

Quote from: Kelgaard on Jul 03, 2015, 09:35:58 PMHow 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 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.

QuoteWarner Bros. has revealed new details about how Mortal Kombat X players will be able to download and play as Predator.

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 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'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.
