You can scope out the listing on the official Xbox website for yourself, assuming it hasn't been changed already.

They note that the Kombat Pack grants early access to 4 new playable characters and skin packs.

It also includes Jason Voorhees, Predator, whom they refer to as "the Ultimate Hunter," along with, "Two Klassic Mortal Kombat characters."

Each playable character will come with a themed skin pack including three new skins for select fighters, and also includes The Samurai Pack.

You'll probably never look at corn on the cob or skewers the same way having seen Mileena's new Mortal Kombat X fatality...

We're less than a month away from Mortal Kombat X's April 14th release date and the final pieces of the puzzle are being placed as the character select screen portraits are filled in with faces new and old.

The recent NetherRealm Studios stream focused on game play for Mileena, Takeda and Kung Jin, also showing us their gruesome new fatalities.

Kung Jin's kill move was actually featured in the story trailer from about a month ago, though we didn't know it was his in-game fatality until now.

Hit the jump to see Mileena's gnarly ender, Takeda's fatality and the game play videos for all three kombatants.

Earlier: Today's Kombat Kast stream has been packed with new information about NetherRealm Studios' upcoming fighter -- Mortal Kombat X.

The NRS crew announced on stream that MKX on PlayStation 4 will support last-gen fightsticks.

This means that if you have a PlayStation 3 fightstick (such as the Injustice: Gods Among Us special edition stick), you will be able to use it on the next-gen system for MKX.

More information is set to drop later.

New fighters in action, a new '-ality,' and more: Kombat Kast Mortal Kombat X live stream

Updated: The stream is now live.

The NetherRealm Studios team returns today to bring us another installment of Kombat Kast.

Over the past few days, we've been getting hints at what is set to be shown on stream today. This broadcast is looking to be jam-packed with content, so you definitely won't want to miss it.

We can expect to see the reveal of a new "-ality" today, along with some of the new characters in action for the first time.

The stream will begin at 1 p.m. PST (about 30 minutes from when this was written).

Check out the live video feed after the jump.

Updated: Kombat Kast airs tomorrow, will show new '-ality'; Boon further hints at Spawn, and has Mortal Kombat X gone gold?

Updated: Ed Boon just sent out a tweet saying that the Kombat Kast is indeed scheduled for tomorrow. We can also expect to see another new "-ality."

Eariler: NetherRealm Studios' own Ed Boon has been very active on Twitter these past couple of days. Whether it be his own original tweets or simply addressing questions from followers, Boon has said some interesting things over on social media.

One of the first things you may have noticed in this story is the gold Mortal Kombat X logo in our banner. That wasn't a result of our awesome image editing skills, but rather, Ed Boon's new Twitter profile picture. This is leading his Twitter followers (us included) to believe that Mortal Kombat X has gone gold (meaning development is complete and the game is ready to ship out to retailers). With the game's release date now less than a month away, we feel that's a fair assumption to make.

If that news isn't good enough for you, though, you may be happy to hear that more reveals could potentially be dropping as early as tomorrow.

According to Boon, he and his team are currently attempting to prepare another Kombat Kast stream for tomorrow. During the last broadcast, it was mentioned that the next stream would show off the three newest characters in the Mortal Kombat universe: Jacqueline Briggs, Takashi Takeda, and Kung Jin, who are the daughter of Jax, the son of Kenshi, and a descendant of Kung Lao, respectively.

Perhaps we'll see the MK spawn in action tomorrow. And speaking of spawn...

Moral Kombat X lead designer: 'We have some exciting announcements specifically related to the competitive community coming very soon'

We're now less than one month away to the release of the new-gen editions of Mortal Kombat X (PS4, XB1, PC).

That should be reason enough for Mortal Kombat fans to start getting very excited; after all, it's the first new Mortal Kombat fighting game in about four years.

But just in case the release of their new game wasn't enough to get the hype going, Mortal Kombat X lead designer John Edwards has just said in an interview with GamesBeat that there will also be some very exciting community-centric announcements coming very soon.

GamesBeat: NetherRealm Studios’ fighting games are enjoying major support among the competitive scene. As just one example, between Mortal Kombat 2011 and Injustice, Evo [Evolution Championship Series] has officially run one of your games for the last four years straight — not including Mortal Kombat X in 2015 and Mortal Kombat 2011 as a side tournament in 2014.

Is NetherRealm Studios doing anything to help support this growth?

Erron Black, Baraka, Shinnok, Goro and Jax surface in Mortal Kombat X screen shots

Updated: We've added a ton of new Mortal Kombat X screen shots into this story, forming a gallery of 60 images. A few of these pictures have previously been shown, but the vast majority are brand new.

New Mortal Kombat X images have surfaced on the interwebs this evening showing Erron Black, Baraka, Shinnok, Goro and Jax in action in the new game, check them out.

Johnny Cage's full X-Ray attack, Fatalities galore, and more - over 20 minutes of new Mortal Kombat X footage from Smosh Games

The folks over at Smosh Games managed to get some hands-on time with NetherRealm Studios' upcoming fighter -- Mortal Kombat X.

Their team sat down to play over 20 minutes of MKX, showing off a number of characters: Johnny Cage, D'Vorah, Sub-Zero, Scorpion, and more.

Speaking of which, we actually get to see Johnny Cage's full X-Ray attack in action.

There are also a slew of Fatalities shown off here, including Ermac's stomach churning finisher.

Hit the jump to check out some fresh Mortal Kombat X footage.

One of the most painful to watch in Mortal Kombat history, you might not be able to stomach Ermac's second fatality...

Awesome puns aside, this is one of the more gruesome enders we've ever seen in the Mortal Kombat series, and that's saying something.

We saw the beginnings of this fatality back when Ermac was first announced, but all we saw was the semi-misleading contortion half.

Ermac telepathically suspends his opponent for a brief time before twisting their body not once, but twice, effectively breaking their back.

We've seen telekinetic contortion fatalities in the past and they usually just involve pretzeling, which is now a word, your victim in 300 different bone-crunching poses and eventually allowing them to fall to a heap on the floor.

This one starts that way, then takes a pretty gross turn. Hit the jump to check it out.

Mortal Kombat X on mobile (video preview) - yes, there is multiplayer; lets you contribute to your Faction Wars score in the console version

While at the Game Developers' Conference (GDC) last week, mobile gaming sites TouchArcade and DroidGamers were able to get their hands on a demo build of Motral Kombat X for mobile devices, and they've got plenty of good things to say about it.

Both sites were very impressed, first of all, with the visuals in the game. TouchArcade commented that the graphics were several notches above that in the mobile version of Injustice.

Meanwhile, DroidGamers gave it much higher praise, writing: "visually this game is probably one of the best games we have seen on Android and that is saying a lot considering there are some pretty stunning games available."

Read on to see a video preview of the mobile game app, as well as other comments both sites had for the title.

Mortal Kombat X's online play will be region-locked on PlayStation platforms, just like with Injustice and MK9

Update: EventHubs reader Juanito Calvicie notified us that the region locks for online play only apply to gamers on the PlayStation 3 versions of NetherRealm Studios fighting games; online play for Mortal Kombat 9 and Injustice is region-free on the Xbox 360 version.

Earlier: The online play in Mortal Kombat X will be region-locked, just like it was in Injustice: Gods Among Us and Mortal Kombat 9, NetherRealm Studios's Studio Head Shaun Himmerick confirmed today via a tweet.


This means that the online servers you'll play on in Mortal Kombat X will depend on if you purchased a North American edition of the game, or a European one -- there are separate servers for US and Europe. Edit: This is only true for the PlayStation versions of the game.

And until further notice, players on the US server will not be able to play with those on the EU server, and vice-versa.

Generally speaking, this isn't a big problem, unless you have friends from across the ocean that you'd like to play with (in which case you may want to think about importing the game), or if you live outside of the United States and Europe, like I do.

Fireballs, ice swords, telekenisis, explosions and helicopters - These seven minutes of the Mortal Kombat X storyline are action packed!

Today's NetherRealm Studios stream revealed nearly a full seven minutes of the story mode for Mortal Kombat X.

If we've learned anything from Mortal Kombat 2011 and Injustice, it's that NetherRealm knows how to make an entertaining story mode for its fighting games.

As aesthetically pleasing at it is exciting, Mortal Kombat X's story mode looks like it could NRS' best work yet.

Check out Johnny Cage in action as NetherRealm Studios developers show off the mouthy actor in their latest stream

Update: Stream archive has been added to this story.

Earlier: Kenshi, Shinnok, Jason, the Cage family, what else could NetherRealm have in store for us?

With so many reveals in recent days, the hype is building like mad and it shows no signs of slowing. Today at 1pm PST, NetherRealm is going to do a live stream wherein we hope to hear all the details on the extensive list of recent reveals.

We wouldn't put it past NRS to present us with even more new content for Mortal Kombat X, but we'd also be just fine with them giving us some time to process all this new information.

As of now, they've titled the stream, "A story 25 years in the making..." so it sounds like we're looking at a historical recount and how it has shaped NRS and MK into their current enterprises.

Whatever they have in store for us, you're surely not going to want to miss it. Hit the jump below to tune in.
