DC's Clown Prince of Crime, the Joker, is now officially available in Mortal Kombat 11. At this point, just about everything about the DLC fighter has been revealed, from his fatalities to his ending and so on, but that doesn't really compare to actually playing him yourself, of course. There is, however, just one tiny catch: he's not available for every single player.
See, the Joker is available as part of an "early access" release available to Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack owners. For folks that have purchased the DLC, the Joker is available now, whereas he will be available to purchase for everyone else at this time next week. If you are not a Kombat Pack owner, that is plenty of time to decide whether you want to bother with the character or not.
Still not convinced? We've included 15 minutes of Joker gameplay footage from Mortal Kombat 11 in this post! If that doesn't sell you on the new character, maybe he's just not for you.
The Joker will be released for @MortalKombat Kombat Pack owners tomorrow at 10AM PT for most countries and regions. PS4 users in the SIE-Asia store can begin downloading him at Noon JST on 01/29.
