Jason Voorhees, the hockey-masked murderer from the Friday the 13th movie franchise will arrive in Mortal Kombat X as a playable character on May 5. Developer NetherRealm Studios announced Jason’s arrival in a livestream earlier today. The DLC character will be made available to players who bought the Kombat Pack DLC first.
If you didn’t pick up the Kombat Pack, you’ll be able to grab Jason separately a week later and even if you don’t pony up for him, he’ll still be a playable part of the game’s Premiere Towers with or without a purchase.
Jason is the first of four confirmed DLC characters on the way to Mortal Kombat X. Other entrants are MK characters Tanya and Tremor and the Predator from the film series of the same name will also be arriving further down the track.
