The next phase of the Kombat Pass is here, bringing plenty of new characters to Mortal Kombat 11. And the new addition is none other than the legendary Joker. The DLC character from DC Comics will be released on Jan. 28, 2020, bringing the madness in whole new ways to the already insanely violent franchise. Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios have been pretty consistent about adding new characters and content to the game. Other characters include Spawn, Terminator T-800, Sindel, Nightwolf, and Shang Tsung.
The legendary DC Comics villain is arguably the most well-known of all the various bad guys the Dark Knight has ever faced. Joker is described as “Batman’s most formidable foe” in the press release announcing his inclusion in the MK11 roster. As the press release says, “With a unique new look that screams crazy and dangerous, the Clown Prince of Crime rounds out a stacked cast for the first Kombat Pass.”
To coincide with the ringing in of the new year and 2020, the trailer, which can be seen below, features fireworks and has a very celebratory atmosphere. Though if this guy ever shows up for you New Years party, you’re probably in for a very bad time.
Aside from the new character, there are a few other things going on in Mortal Kombat 11. Kombat League, the seasonal ranked mode in Mortal Kombat 11, is currently in its sixth season, ‘Season of Konquest,’ and now available for all players to participate in until January 7. The next season of Kombat League begins on January 14th.
The developers also kicked off a New Year’s event for the fighting game, called Ring in the New Year Tower. This new addition to the Towers of Time mode allows players to test their might for experience, character skins, player module pieces, consumables, and more. Champagne Bottles, Party Poppers, Fireworks and so much more are all up for grabs as gameplay addons for taking part in the mode. Each of these
