‘Mortal Kombat X’ Predator Posters & Gameplay Details

Back in March, just before Mortal Kombat X debuted, it was announced that the monstrous Predator from the 1987 action classic of the same name, will be available for fans to play in a download pack. Jason Voorhees and Tanya are two new downloadable characters that fans can already play. As fans get ready for the Predator pack, Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon has released new posters through his Twitter page, featuring the title creature himself along with original Predator character Dillon, portrayed by Carl Weathers in the first movie.

While fans will have to wait a few more weeks before the download packs are available in July, footage from the video game, which has since been removed, offers new details about the expansion. Each of these Predator characters have three different variations, which have their own unique designs, with one of the Predator's fighting without a mask. The Predator will also be able to hurl his discs at opponents, set off mines, use his wrist-blades, fire his shoulder cannon, and even initiate a self-destruct sequence, which destroys everything around the killing machine, except him.

Watch the Story Behind Jean-Claude Van Damme as the Original ‘Predator’

Watch the Story Behind Jean-Claude Van Damme as the Original ‘Predator’

Before Jean-Claude Van Damme had his breakout role in the martial-arts drama Bloodsport, the Muscles from Brussels was originally set to play the title character in Predator. At the time, the creature design was much different, with the actor spending a few days on the set running around in a red, lobster-esque suit, which we can now see thanks to The Monster Show, a web series put on by the Stan Winston School of Character Arts. Steve Johnson, who worked on Predator and a number of iconic movies such as Ghostbusters and The Abyss, explained how unhappy Jean-Claude Van Damme was with the suit, how he thought he would be able to showcase his martial arts skills in this movie and much more, along with footage from his early days on the set, and images of the original costume design.

Of course, after the 5'9" Jean-Claude Van Damme left the project, they considerably reworked the Predator design and brought in the 7'2" Kevin Peter Hall to play this massive alien creature. The movie went on to earn over $59 million domestic in 1987 (the equivalent of $127.5 million today) from a $15 million budget, and also served as the acting debuts for both Jesse Ventura and filmmaker Shane Black.
