One of the more memorable scenes from the original RoboCop involved the part-man, part-machine, all-cop action hero saving a woman from an assailant who was using her as a human shield. RoboCop, using a cybernetic tracking system, shoots through the woman’s skirt and squarely into the groin of the perp, protecting the innocent through high-caliber castration. New gameplay footage of the Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath expansion, which will add RoboCop to the game, shows that we’ll be able to relive that dick-destroying scene in the game in the form of a Fatality.

RoboCop will also get some back-up from ED-209 in his other Fatality, and Alex Murphy apparently doesn’t feel bad at all about shooting other people’s hands clean off, based on NetherRealm’s new gameplay trailer.

The Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath gameplay reveal also shows newcomers Fujin and Sheeva in action, with all the limb-severing and spine-ripping we’ve come to expect from fighters in this series. And we get a peek at a RoboCop vs. Terminator battle, evoking the Dark Horse comic book series and 16-bit video game from the early ’90s.

Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is coming as a paid expansion on May 26. In addition to including three new playable characters, Aftermath will continue the single-player story of MK11. An update to Mortal Kombat 11 will also add new stages and Friendships, which are the silly, non-violent finishing moves introduced in Mortal Kombat 2.

Aftermath will cost $39.99 as a stand-alone upgrade for Mortal Kombat 11. For players who are jumping in fresh, there’s the $59.99 Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Kollection, which bundles the base game, the Kombat Pack (which includes characters Shang Tsung, Nightwolf, Sindel, Terminator T-800, The Joker, and Spawn, plus 25 character skins), and the Aftermath content.
