Mortal Kombat X's second downloadable special guest is the Predator, according to a description of the game's season pass on the Xbox Games Store.

Jason Voorhees will be released as a DLC character as part of the Kombat Pack, the game's $29.99 season pass, publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced last week. The company also teased a second "special guest character."

The Xbox Games Store description of the Kombat Pack reads, "Kombat Pack grants early access to 4 new playable characters and skin packs. Stalk and slash your opponents as Horror Icon Jason Voorhees, or play as Predator, the Ultimate Hunter." We've reached out to Warner Bros. for comment, and will update this article with any information we receive.

The Predator debuted in the 1987 film Predator, which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as the leader of a group of ex-Special Forces soldiers who are hunted by an alien lifeform known as the Predator.

Mortal Kombat X will be released April 14 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. Last week, Warner Bros. delayed the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions to this summer.
