NetherRealm Studios have been dabbling with many iconic characters from Hollywood movies in their games. We’ve seen Alien, Predator, Jason Voorhees, Freddy Kruger and more memorable characters making an appearance in the series. Now it’s time for the one and only Terminator T–800.
Due to it being based off the Terminator 2 movie you can expect several trademark moves from that particular movie to be included. The Arnold Schwarzenegger lookalike is on point with his tank-like presence being real intimidating. Hard thumping punches is his style of choice, though he’s quite handy with a shotgun or machine gun in hand too. He can teleport and comes with some of the most amazing features yet seen in a Mortal Kombat game.
Should he be incinerated by fire (that would be Scorpion), his exterior will melt away and transform into his endoskeleton form. In the video Scorpion shoots out his spear to no avail. Thanks to the endoskeleton it can’t attached to anything and just bounces off it, making that move null and void. It also seems that once he’s in that form that he can absorb more attacks.
Get your first look at him below:
The Terminator T-800 arrives on 8 October. The other DLC characters (part of the Kombat Pack), Sindel, Joker and Spawn will show up on 26 Nov., 28 Jan., and 17 March.
