Mortal Kombat X fans got the news they’ve been waiting for since it was hinted at during NetherRealm Studio’s latest Kombat Kast stream.
Today, the studio revealed that more Mortal Kombat X DLC will be released in the near future via a press release statement from WB Interactive Games:
“Today Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment confirmed that NetherRealm Studios is developing new downloadable content (DLC) for Mortal Kombat X, the best-selling game of 2015 to-date according to US NPD. The new content will include four new playable characters, skins and a new environment, all of which will be available in the first half of 2016.”
Despite having to wait a few months for new content, which has yet to be revealed, series co-creator Ed Boon dropped a few of his usual cryptic hints on what’s to come:

The first hint is quite obvious. It’s the infamous “The Pit” stage that’s been featured in numerous Mortal Kombat games over the years. The second hint shows silhouettes of who the four new playable characters will be. Though speculation on who is featured in the teaser above is running pretty rampant throughout the MK community, most people generally agree that the silhouette on the far right strikes a very close resembles Bo’Rai Cho’s updated character model from MKX’s story.
