Jason Voorhees Joins Mortal Kombat X on May 5

NetherRealm Studios has revealed that the first DLC character, Jason Voorhees, will join the Mortal Kombat X cast this week. The Friday the 13th villain is available for Kombat Pass holders starting May 5 with the character releasing for everyone else on May 12.

Jason Voorhees is a large, lumbering character that deals a ton of damage, though is slower compared to the average fighter. His primary form of attack will be his machete, though Jason isn’t afraid to throw in a few punches. Overall, it looks like NetherRealm Studios has done a solid job of adapting Jason Voorhees for Mortal Kombat X. Releasing the same days is the Horror Pack, which contains three new skins; Vampiress Mileena, Pharaoh Ermac, and Kraken Reptile.

The Kombat Pass, which contains four DLC characters and skin packs, is available now for $29.99. The Jason Voorhees bundle, which will be available for those without the Kombat Pass, will cost $8. In addition, Jason Voorhees will be available individually for $5, and the Horror Pack for $4.
