How many DLC kharacters...
02/06/2019 11:34 PM EST

With each NRS game released, the number of DLC characters increases. I think 10 would be a good amount and realistic. With 3 spots likely given to horror icons Michael Myers and Pennywise and the other to Spawn, that leaves a lot of room for 3D era fan favorites to make an appearance. With MK11 likely being NRS's last game on this generation of consoles, DLC could potentially go on a bit longer than usual, until they inevitably announce Injustice 3 for next gen. Leaves me excited for all the potential this roster can deliver.

The first Kombat Pack is 6 characters. I'm guessing 2 will be guests, and some of the other 4 will be prominent figures in the story who weren't playable in the starting roster.

I imagine the second Kombat Pack will also feature 6 characters, just for consistency. It'll take a longer time to develop, but having 6 in the first pack coming out in a slow drip should buy them some time. Whether it's 6 or only 4, I figure 2 will be guests either way.

They might release two packs of three characters instead of one pack of six, to keep the hype and mystery up and more easily project the demand for additional characters -- not to mention, a more digestible price tag for each pack that will still make them more money put together.

Regardless of how they strategize it, I'm predicting 12 characters total with 4 being guests. The final pack may once again be home to one of their more experimental character builds, like Triborg and the Turtles were in the last two releases.

Yeah my guess is two packs of six, with two characters in each pack being guests. They hinted that one of the DLC characters will be rather mind-blowing, so I’ll call it right now and guess Onaga.

I hope 12 characters, only 2 guests at most, but 0 guests would be a dream, 12! new MK characters! The dream is true!

The description from the Battlepass is that the first Kombat Pack comes with 6 Battlepasses, each Battlepass last for 2 months, so judging based of that, I think there will be a year's worth of additional content. I think there will be another Kombat Pack as well for 2 years of content that can lead nicely into their next game.

We know guests are going to be a thing and I think it will be split evenly with 6 guests and 6 returning characters.

This is the most reasonable response. We're likely getting 50/50 guests/MK or close to it. MKX was 4/4 and Injustice 2 was 4/5. DC has a much larger library than MK does and they still had 4 guests. If it's 12, 6/6 makes a lot of sense. 3 packs of 4, 2 guests 2 MK each.

that would be awesome, 12 dlc characters, all of them pure MK :)

anyway, i also hope for 2 packs of six fighters, some of them guests, max 4 no more and Shao Kahn as day one dlc, not counting for the packs.

So 2 six-packs? Beer or abs? :D

But seriously, does the Premium edtion contain a complete season pass or is it just for the first 6 pack?

I'm wondering about DLC characters now... Will you be able to fight them in STORY MODE? As Boon said there will be no NPC fights in story mode, but does that also count for DLC character that WILL come to the game at one time?

I really hope you can at least fight the non-guest DLC characters in storymode!

2 Kombat packs containing 6 characters would be the smart money. I’m hoping we get more, but that’s a pipe dream at best. Also, I’m willing to bet we see a lot of skins for sale this game. I’d also like to see a classic stage or two for dlc.

You work with what you got...not what you hope for.
