Mortal Kombat 11 DLC Leak Teases Surprising New Character

Many Mortal Kombat 11 gamers are already aware many new characters are on the way to the game, but a leak just indicated a rumored mystery character being added to the roster in the next DLC update. NetherRealm is already including Rambo, Mileena, and Rain, but now there's the possibility that the developer is sneaking in another character for the latest update to the game's expansive roster.

Over on Twitter, user "Skarlet Golpista" revealed that Mortal Kombat 11 on Steam has been updated, and within the files is a brand new and mystery DLC slot. Now, as the user points out, this could be for an unannounced skin pack or something less exciting than a new DLC character, however, this doesn't explain the four different character slots.

Unfortunately, for now, there's no way to know what this new DLC slot is for. If it's for a surprise or hidden DLC character, then it would presumably be someone from the franchise, as any guest character would certainly require marketing.

Like any leak, take everything here with a grain of salt. While the leak itself appears valid, it doesn't reveal anything of the concrete variety, leaving fans with nothing but speculation.


At the moment of publishing, neither WB Games nor NetherRealm Studios have commented on this latest leak, and it's unlikely either well, as both not only have a strict "no comment" policy when it comes to leaks and speculation, but because both have declined to comment on the plethora of previous leaks relating to the game.

Mortal Kombat 11 is available via the PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia, and soon it will be available via the PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S.
