Mortal Kombat X confirms Jason from Friday the 13th as new character


As you may (or may not) know of the latest to the Mortal Kombat franchise, Mortal Kombat X, has been released for almost a month now (April 14th to be exact). Now, first of all, I’m not a huge fan. But I’ve grown up with this franchise and it comes to a huge shock to me that a game that has embraced the term fatality has finally decided to include Jason from Friday the 13th after over 20 or so years of existence.. What took them so long?

Anyway, for those who don’t know, Jason Voorhees is a very famous (or to some, infamous) masked murderer from the on-going movie thriller “Friday the 13th”. Turns out he’s no longer just chasing camp counselors anymore. He’s been confirmed by Warner Bros’ recent trailer to be apart of the Mortal Kombat roster starting tomorrow, May 5th.

Voorhees will be available in Mortal Kombat X by way of the Jason Voorhees Bundle. It launches tomorrow, May 5, for people who own the $30 Mortal Kombat X Kombat Pack. Everyone else can buy the bundle a week later on May 12 for $8. In addition to a new playable character in Voorhees, the Jason Voorhees Bundle comes with the Horror Pack, which introduces three horror-themed skins to Mortal Kombat X. The characters are Vampiress Mileena, Kraken Reptile and Pharaoh Ermac.

Jason Voorhees will also be sold separately starting May 12 for $5, while the Horror Pack will go for $4.
