In a move not many saw coming, At Comic Con 2011, Warner and NetherRealm studios have announced the fourth downloadable character for the acclaimed Mortal Kombat as Freddy Krueger, the scissor-handed, dream-invading villain from the Nightmare on Elm Street movies.

Of course Mortal Kombat is still refused classification here in Australia, but we know that plenty of you have imported the game from less-censored shores so look out for Freddy in August at a US$5 price point or as part of the season pass bundle.

It's somewhat surprising to see a Warner film character in the game as the DC Comic characters (Superman, Batman and co) featured in the previous game were largely criticised due to the absence of the franchises signature fatality moves. Obviously WB doesn't have the same qualms about letting poor old Freddy get eviscerated.

The bad news is that Freddy is reportedly the final DLC character for the game. If more Warner licenses could make the cut who would you like to see? Beetlejuice, Shrek, Bugs Bunny?

Holy shit that's awesome. Really need to read through that other thread about how to gain access to MK DLC.

Steve, if you get an Xbox UK version, be sure to purchase UK Microsoft point cards over there, as you will have to activate online/DLC via a UK Live account.

Dunno if that's the same for a PS3 version. & the PS3 version also has Kratos & his awesome stage which has 3 stage fatalities :)

Dunno about this, feels a little bit like jumping the shark to me =\

Plenty more good MK characters they could have added

I have 1 copy left on me for ps3, and 1 for 360. Hit me up.

Edit: These are UK PAL copies by the way. I created a UK account to get Kenshi and it works perfectly on my Aussie account.

Paveway, the game's AI is cheap. To beat it you just gotta be just as much cheap and dirty as teq's mum.

Try jumping over him to cause him to do his jump uppercut thingy then just punish him when he lands. Spam, rinse, repeat.

Yeah, same.

This is like Batman popping up in a Garfield cartoon.
Sure, you can do that crossover, but does he really belong in there?

Posted 07:17pm 22/7/11
yeah i do that and tackle straight back into him, you can't always get over him and he fucks you up if you don't make it

i also teleport and tackle when he does the hammer throw

but fuck he's just a ridiculous cunt

Yeah, Boss AI is cheap, I beat Shao Kahn by just staying at range from him to try and lure him into throwing stuff at me, then when he'd start to throw something I'd teleport behind him and torpedo him. Pretty much just get him to create as many openings as possible then punish with teleports/torpedos. But yes, he was a cunt.
