Mortal Kombat X: How To Play As The DLC Characters For Free

Mortal Kombat X has some DLC characters that are locked out of the main game until you get their DLC. These characters are actually not entirely paid as you can play with them under some certain conditions. This was also confirmed by Mortal Kombat X developer Ed Boon, who revealed this interesting info over at Twitter.

According to Ed Boon, you can test the DLC characters even if you don’t have them purchased by playing the premiere towers in the game.

He gave an example of Jason Voorhees, who is a DLC character, and revealed how the players can play him without getting him from DLC.

So what’s the catch here? Since this sounds too good to be true. It seems like that it will basically work as a rotation of a particular DLC character by the developers, as Ed Boon stated that they can have Jason Voorhees in one of the premiere towers in the game, and this means users can play him for free. So it will depend on what the developers decide for the premiere towers, and it is not something that is up to the users. Want to play as Predator? Better wait until he is in the premiere tower.


This could be a good way to test each of the DLC characters before you fork over the cash to buy their DLC.

Mortal Kombat X will be released on the PS4, PC and Xbox One on April 14 2015.
