Skarlet is the 1st of 4 new Mortal Kombat characters that you will be able to buy and kill with. The cost (per character) is going to be $4.99 on the Playstation 3, or 400 Microsoft Total Bullshit Points on the Xbox 360. June 21st the characters will be released, so expect to see the rest quite soon.
Also coming out June 21st are 2 klassic skins for free. Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, inspired Cyrax and Sektor. Mortal Kombat is out now on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, and you should probably pick it up seeing as it’s the best MK game ever. (UPDATE) Rather than try and explain this to you any easier than it was laid out, here it is!
The first Mortal Kombat downloadable warrior, Skarlet, will be available for download starting June 21st and will be followed by Kenshi, Rain, and an unannounced new entrant to the Mortal Kombat tournament! Each warrior will come with a full move set, a ladder arcade story ending and two fatalities.
Available for purchase starting June 21st, the Mortal Kombat Season Pass will allow users to buy all four downloadable warriors as a package for 1200 Microsoft points. Each individual warrior can be purchased when they release for 400 Microsoft points. Each warrior will become unlocked for download as they become available throughout the summer.
Further, in order to allow for seamless online play with the new downloadable warriors, free compatibility packs will be required to download with the release of each new warrior. As an added incentive, each compatibility pack will come with two FREE klassic skins – the first of which are being released with Skarlet will be Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 inspired Cyrax and Sektor. Gamers who purchase the Mortal Kombat Season Pass (or individual Add-on content) will automatically get the free klassic skins when they download each warrior. Those who do not purchase the Mortal Kombat Season Pass or the Add-ons, will be able to download the compatibility packs for free and have access to the klassic skins as well.
Please note: The Mortal Kombat Season Pass is only available for purchase on Microsoft’s Xbox LIVE. PlayStation users will also have full access to the individual DLC warriors (for $4.99), the compatibility packs, and the FREE klassic skins.
