Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermath DLC Teases Femme Fatales
Klassic skin pack coming soon!

The Summer DLC schedule for Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath has been updated with a first look tease at the highly anticipated Klassic Femme Fatale Skin Pack! Take a closer look yonder:

Coming August 25th in early access for owners of Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath; the Klassic Femme Fatale pack draws retro inspiration from the palette swap designs introduced in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. These klassic skins will be available to Kitana, Jade, and Skarlet!

Skarlet was never actually in any of the original arcade trilogy, but her origins, much like Ermac's, come from a tradition of arcade fan rumors of a fabled red tinted palette swap. She replaces absent fighter Mileena in the traditional UMK3 lineup.

A majority 58.3% of MK Online users voted the Klassic Femme Fatale pack their most anticipated Aftermath DLC skins. 33.3% look forward to the still to-be-revealed Halloween offering of the All Hallow's Eve skins. You can buy the Masquerade Skin Pack now for $5.99. Aftermath packs will also be available for individual purchase.

What do you think now that we've seen the Klassic Femme Fatales? Who do you hope to see for All Hallow's Eve? Leave your thoughts and speculation in the comments below and find more in the Mortal Kombat 11 forum!

NetherRealm Previews Upcoming MK11 Kombat League Skins
Rewards inspired by Reptile & more!

NetherRealm Studios has released a new preview for a variety of skins coming soon to the Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath competitive online mode. The unlockable Kombat League rewards include themes inspired by D'Vorah, Kano and more. Take a closer look:

It looks like a Black Dragon event will outfit Johnny Cage, Cassie Cage, and Sindel in lightly armored red and pink gear, while Baraka and Kabal are one with the hive in Kytinn yellow and black -- camouflage inspired by the insectoid D'Vorah. Sure to cause the biggest stir is a green Scorpion skin clearly inspired by missing cult favourite Reptile.

Fans who found Reptile hiding throughout the Mortal Kombat 11 Krypt will have already unlocked Scorpion's green tinted Forest Ninja skin, but this design goes all-in on the Reptile reference, adding exposed scaly Zaterran flesh to green, palette swapped attire inspired by the first Mortal Kombat.

Fans will remember Reptile as the definitive secret character first introduced as a non-playable Scorpion palette swap. He joined an expanded playable roster in Mortal Kombat II, becoming a mainstay of the series until his surprise omission from MK11.

Zaterran Scorpion is pictured with the Kytinn skinned fighters. It's unclear if they will appear in the same Kombat League event, or if there may be a Reptile or Klassic based theme also coming down the line.

WB Interactive Unchanged in WarnerMedia Corporate Shuffle
Internal memo address WBIE status.

The fate of Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment remains the subject of intense speculation since reports that parent company AT&T may be interested in selling, but an internal memo released to WarnerMedia staff has addressed stability amidst a major corporate shuffle.

CEO Jason Kilar sent the e-mail on August 7th, which has also been made available via the corporate press room. It addresses a drastic streamlining of divisions within the company, centered around the elevation of the HBO Max streaming service. This includes passing reference to WB Interactive, which will remain under the purview of WB Chair & CEO Ann Sarnoff. The relevant excerpt appears below:

The Warner Bros. Motion Pictures Group continues to be led by Chairman Toby Emmerich. Warner Bros. Television Studios group continues to be led by Chairman Peter Roth. Warner Bros. Interactive remains part of the Studios and Networks group, along with our Global Brands and Franchises team including DC led by Pam Lifford, and our Kids, Young Adults and Classics business led by Tom Ascheim, all focused on engaging fans with our brands and franchises through games and other interactive experiences.

The restructuring has seen massive layoffs at DC Comics and DC Universe streaming, both directly impacted by the prioritizing of HBO Max. DC Direct in-house merchandising has also suffered significant cutbacks according to a report by The Hollywood Reporter.

With the focus of the memo chiefly on HBO Max, few conclusions can be drawn regarding the future of Warner Bros gaming divisions. It is unclear if no news is good news, but business appears to continue as normal for now, with Rocksteady Studios announcing a Suicide Squad game, and NetherRealm Studios continuing to hire for key positions.

Ed Boon is scheduled to appear later this month at the DC FanDome 24-hour virtual fan event, which included Mortal Kombat 11 in a promotional hype trailer. MK11 is releasing new downloadable skins this month. The Injustice series also made a recent return with a new comic book series.

Will the release of this information settle things down before the convention? Share your thoughts in the comments below. Discuss these stories more in the Future MK and DC Universe Injustice forums.

Ed Boon Confirmed for DC FanDome Event
Game developer to appear at virtual event.

It will be a star-studded event when the DC FanDome virtual convention goes live for 24 hours on August 22nd! We spotted Baraka in the teaser trailer, but a new guest list released by DC Comics promises a whole lot of special celebrity guests, including NetherRealm Studios Creative Director Ed Boon! Take a look:

NetherRealm Studios has established close ties with DC Comics as the team behind a franchise launched with the Injustice: Gods Among Us fighting game. DC also published comics based on Mortal Kombat X, with a subsequent ambitious comics project rumored to have been explored for a time.

Boon's name can be spotted scrolling through at the 6 second mark, confirming the developer's involvement in the massive multimedia celebration. We've isolated a still shot below, just in case you had trouble seeing it:

Boon already joked about rubbing shoulders with Dwayne Johnson in the alphabetical list, quipping to Twitter: "That's right, I'm on a panel with Dwayne Johnson! #NotTrue #AlphabetListing" He may've ruled out a panel with the upcoming live-action Black Adam star, but he hasn't revealed what we should expect from the fan event appearance.

It could be a good time to reveal some upcoming skin packs: The Klassic Femme Fatale Pack will be released just three days after the event, with All Hallow's Eve skins to follow shortly after for Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath owners.

Injustice has also just returned with Injustice: Year Zero: a digital-first prequel comic that will reveal the fate of the Justice Society, and the reason for The Joker's infamous attack that drove Superman to establish his Regime. Series writer Tom Taylor is one of the names confirmed in the guest list released to social media. Take a closer look below:

Ed Boon will make his appearance even as rumors of a potential sale of WB Games casts an uncertain future. Mortal Kombat and the Chicago based development studio became part of the Warner Brothers empire -- which also owns DC Comics -- in a 2009 purchase. Microsoft have reportedly expressed interest.
