Try out Mortal Kombat X’s Jason Voorhees DLC for free this weekend


If you’ve been on the fence about picking up the DLC kombatants in Netherrealm Studios’ Mortal Kombat X, now’s your chance to take Jason Voorhees out for a test run. Over this weekend, players will be able to select and play as the machete-wielding horror icon free of charge.

In order to access Jason, players will need to visit his personal themed Premier Tower in the Living Towers. Once there, Jason will become playable and can be used to face off against other kombatants on the roster using all three of his fighting styles.


The Jason Voorhees DLC was first made available earlier in this month. Since then, the downloadable character has been promoted by developer Netherrealm on their official Twitch channel. Jason’s move sets, fighting styles, and fatalities have all been demonstrated on the stream.

Fans can expect to look forward to the arrival of more DLC characters in the near future, including the previously-teased Predator. Mortal Kombat X is available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions are also scheduled to arrive this summer.
