NetherRealm Studios has recently unveiled a thrilling sneak peek of the much-anticipated downloadable content (DLC) fighter for Mortal Kombat 1. Omni-Man, the formidable character from Robert Kirkman and Ryan Ottley’s ‘Invincible’, is poised to be the first DLC fighter to join the MK1 roster, set to make his debut in November 2023. The renowned studio confirmed the impending arrival, keeping fans on the edge of their seats with an exact release date still under wraps. Notably, the iconic character will be voiced by the talented and esteemed actor J.K. Simmons, reprising his role from the hit animated Netflix adaptation.
A formidable brawler with a lethal edge
With a sneak peek into his combat style, it’s evident that Omni-Man is set to bring a bone-crushing experience to Mortal Kombat 1. Exhibiting a powerhouse of devastating and dominating moves, Omni-Man’s gameplay is marked by a slightly slower pace, compensating for his relentless combos that can swiftly deplete any opponent’s health bar. Notably, his arsenal also boasts a formidable counter-attack move, enabling him to utilize super speed to deliver lightning-fast strikes and knockdowns, leaving adversaries reeling in the wake of his unstoppable force.
Gruesome fatality showcase
The unveiling also offered a glimpse into Omni-Man’s merciless and ghastly finishing moves, showcasing the dark and visceral nature of the character. The first fatality paints a gruesome picture as Omni-Man seizes his hapless victim, thrusting them onto a relentless subway track. Despite the impending destruction, Omni-Man remains unaffected, while the unfortunate adversary bears the full impact of the subway’s unforgiving force, resulting in a horrifying demise that tears them asunder. The second fatality, paying homage to a pivotal scene from the animated adaptation, demonstrates Omni-Man’s sheer brutality as he ruthlessly crushes his opponent’s head between his bare hands, leaving nothing but a chilling reminder of his overwhelming power.
An exciting DLC lineup to anticipate
Omni-Man’s impending debut marks just the beginning of an exciting lineup of DLC fighters set to grace Mortal Kombat 1. The six already announced combatants, including Ermac, Peacemaker, Quan Chi, Takeda, and Homelander, promise to bring an exhilarating mix of combat styles and unique abilities to the acclaimed title. With the anticipation building, fans can expect the arrival of the remaining DLC fighters throughout the course of 2024, further expanding the rich tapestry of the Mortal Kombat universe.
