Nightwolf follows the release of the first Mortal Kombat 11 DLC character, Shang Tsung who was released in June.

Shang Tsung was revealed as the first DLC character in Mortal Kombat 11 before the game was released. Nightwolf, on the other hand, was revealed as part of the Kombat Pack that includes the two aforementioned fighters, Sindel, and Spawn from Image Comics. There are also two mystery guest characters. One of these characters was teased when the sound of a chainsaw was heard. Many believe this is a nod to Ash, the protagonist of the Evil Dead series.

The release of Nightwolf will also bring the Klassic Arcade Fighter Skin Pack featuring Jax, Kung Lao and Kano, as well as the new War Games Sonya Blade skin.

EVO 2019, the largest fighting game tournament of the year, takes place the weekend of August 2 and the event usually has announcements and reveals from the top fighting games. There's a possibility that Mortal Kombat 11 fans will get to finally see Sindel's gameplay as her character model was shown before even Nightwolf's.

Fans can also get the confirmation of the mystery DLC character, whether it be Ash or someone else.

Mortal Kombat 11 is available now for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
