Four years ago, NetherRealm Studios Creative Director Ed Boon revealed that Jason Voorhees was considered for the guest characters spot in Mortal Kombat. Ultimately, Freddy Krueger came for Mortal Kombat players, but Boon never forgot about Jason. Beginning this week, Kombat Pack owners will will be able to download the horror icon in Mortal Kombat X.
You can see Jason expertly wield his machete against Cassie Cage, Jacqui Briggs, Sonya Blade, Reptile, and Jax in the trailer above. There’s also a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it glimpse at one of his Fatalities.
If you didn’t spring for the Kombat Pack, the Jason Voorhees Bundle will be available to download on May 12 for $7.99. The bundle also includes the Horror Pack, three horror-themed costumes for Mileena (Vampiress), Reptile (Kraken), and Ermac (Pharaoh). The bundle can also be purchased piecemeal with Jason by himself available for $4.99, while the Horror Pack has been priced at $3.99.
Future downloadable characters planned for Mortal Kombat X include Tanya, Tremor, and The Predator. NetherRealm plans to share more about those three characters at a later date.
