Mortal Kombat 11 roster reveals Terminator and Joker (for real)
Earlier this year, eager fans rooting around in the Mortal Kombat 11 executable found evidence that seemed to reveal all the upcoming characters. Aside from classic Mortal Kombat characters like Nightwolf, the list also featured a few notable guest characters.
Now, following a leak on the official MK YouTube channel, Warner Bros has – finally – confirmed the line-up for the first Kombat Pack.
It includes Shang Tsung and Nightwolf, who have already been released, as well as a character release schedule stretching well into 2020. The Terminator will make his appearance on October 8th, Mortal Kombat veteran Sindel arrives on November 26th, Joker is turning up on January the 28th and finally Spawn will join the fray on March 17th – and that’s not even all!
Put on a happy face
The most interesting new additions are the T-800, based on the old-school Terminator model, complete with the likeness of Arnold Schwarzenegger. His appearance coincides with the launch of the latest Terminator movie, Dark Fate, which is out in October.
Batman’s old nemesis Joker is also starring in his very own film, but his Mortal Kombat apperance doesn’t seem to have anything to do with Joaquin Phoenix’ more clownish interpretation of the character. It looks closer to Heath Ledger’s character from The Dark Knight, or the Injustice 2 version.
The previous leak and the last trailer also hinted at Ash from Evil Dead making an appearance. Ash recently showed up in the multiplayer horror game Dead by Daylight, and should be out in 2020 unless he fits into one of the gaps in the release schedule.

Secret dinosaur levels in Command & Conquer Remastered
There’s a remake of the original Command & Conquer coming next near, and the developers just shared a screenshot of the mission select screen on Reddit. While that might not sound terribly exciting in itself, fans quickly noticed the dinosaur icon.
The three first icons represent the GDI, Nod and Covert Operations missions – while the fourth one seems to confirm that the spectacularly silly dinosaur missions are included too. Mammoth tanks versus dinosaurs? Whoever wins, we have already won!
The two main Command & Conquer series were supposed to be connected
The Command & Conquer series features two distinct stories: The tiberium wars were fought in the future, while Red Alert was set in an alternate history where Hitler never rose to power, and the Soviets started World War II instead.
The two storylines were always separated, but did you know they were supposed to cross over? Command & Conquer introduced the enigmatic villain Kane – the leader of the Brotherhood of Nod – while Red Alert was launched a year later and featured Stalin as the villain.
The Soviet ending of Red Alert revealed that the USSR was controlled by the Brotherhood of Nod all along, and Stalin is murdered by Kane. This unexpected twist was occasionally referenced in later games, but no more attempts were made to merge the timelines afterwards. Probably because the second and third Red Alert games really, really messes with time.
