Mortal Kombat 11’s next character, Nightwolf, revealed

Next Kombat Pack character drops mid-August

The next combatant coming to Mortal Kombat 11 is Nightwolf, who will be available as downloadable content starting Aug. 13. In a new gameplay trailer, we get a peek at Nightwolf in action, bludgeoning his opponents with his signature tomahawks and summoning energy from wolf, bear, and eagle spirits.

Nightwolf retains his classic moves, like his shoulder charge, projectile reflector, and spirit arrow, from his debut appearance in Mortal Kombat 3. According to his official description, “Nightwolf possesses extraordinary magic that allows him to manifest weapons created from spirit energy to fight for the Matoka’s future and defend all of Earthrealm.”

Nightwolf is also not afraid to straight-up murder a fool with that tomahawk, as the fatality shown in his Mortal Kombat 11 gameplay trailer proves. The fighter first relieves his opponent of his jaw, then the front half of his torso, and finally adds a little tomahawk flourish to chop his heart in half. Gotta confirm that kill.

Mortal Kombat 11 players can get Nightwolf as part of the game’s $39.99 Kombat Pack, which includes the already available Shang Tsung, and will deliver DLC characters Sindel, Spawn, and two additional guest characters (likely Ash from Evil Dead and the Terminator) in the future. Kombat Pack owners get one week of early access to Nightwolf; he will be available for everyone else on Aug. 20.
