Mortal Kombat X's Kombat Pack 2 essentially gives you seven characters for the price of four, here's what we think of the new content

Mortal Kombat XL was released just last week, and with it came the option for players to purchase Kombat Pack 2 -- a new batch of DLC featuring additional characters and costumes.

This new set of content can be acquired for $19.99 -- for those who already own MKX (like me) -- or can be obtained by purchasing the full Mortal Kombat XL package.

So, how do the newest fighters fit in with the rest of the roster? And is Kombat Pack 2 worth the money?

Mortal Kombat X's Kombat Pack 2 was released earlier this month, featuring Bo Rai Cho, Tri-Borg and guest characters Leatherface and Xenomorph.

Xenomorph seems to have some quite nasty stuff to offer, as evidenced in this video from Apolo Loussalier.

In this video, you'll see a variety of different combos to use with Xenomorph's 'Infection' variation, as well as a bunch of different setups and what characters they work on. Here's a gif of the 51% combo to get you started.

Mortal Kombat X's Alien has some insanely damaging combos, and just the cutest little Chestburster babies you ever did see

Alien has made its way into Mortal Kombat X, and excitement is exceptionally high amongst EventHubs readers, as we've received quite a few tech videos for the iconic movie monster.

We have showcases for Alien's Acidic and Tarkatan variations, as well as a basic combo video for the character in general.

We also have a collection of Chestburster Brutality Easter Eggs. For those unaware, Aliens often take certain traits from their hosts, and NRS developers had some fun with this.

My personal favorite was the Jason alien, which, if you think about it, has to be one of the most messed up entities conceivable. I should mention, because of MK gore, things are pretty NSFW. Check it out below:

You'll need to use an old school Mortal Kombat trick to access Cyber Sub-Zero in MKX

Kombat Pack 2 is officially available for Mortal Kombat X players, and while everyone is exploring the game's new online experience and characters, you may have forgotten about the Cyber Sub-Zero tease for Triborg.

Click image for animated sequence

Triborg's fourth variation is the cyber version of the Lin Kuei ninja, but aside from tease above we haven't heard much at all about him. To access him you'll need to input a secret sequence on the character select screen, very reminiscent of older MK games.

Select Triborg, and when you're prompted to choose a variation, press up on the D-pad twice, followed by 2. This should grant access to play as Cyber Sub-Zero. You'll see gameplay footage below.

Watch Alien perform a Fatality, Brutality, X-Ray and more in our Mortal Kombat X character breakdown

We recently got to see Mortal Kombat X's fourth and final character reveal for Kombat Pack 2. NetherRealm's latest Kombat Kast gave us a full breakdown for Alien, and he looks really strong.

His normal attacks have some ridiculous range, and are amongst the best in the game. He's got three very different variations that allow him to greatly mix up his play style, meaning we'll likely see a wide range of players with different styles trying him out.

If you don't have the time to watch the whole Kombat Kast, we've gone through and noted the basics for each of Alien's variations. We also found a video from Maximilian showcasing a few of the character's kill moves.

Rumor: New Mortal Kombat X stage fatality potentially uncovered in 'The Kove' stage

It must be stressed in advance that this has still not been officially confirmed by NetherRealm Studios, so this stage fatality might not be the real deal. Even so, we're inclined to report on it based on how authentic it looks from the images released.

This stage fatality would be a part of the stage 'The Kove', and features an appearance by a sea creature we'd prefer to avoid, if possible.

One reason we've chosen to believe this is the real deal is that Mortal Kombat XL is coming up soon, and new content like this would certainly not be that surprising.

Check out the images below.

Ed Boon actually did comment on this fatality, but he neither confirmed nor denied it.
