NetherRealm Studios has been enjoying the successful launch of Mortal Kombat 11 . Earlier in June, they the complete DLC roster, and last month they showed off gameplay for Nightwolf . This seems to be the year of the Terminator with the new film releasing, the franchise having a cross-over with the successful Gears 5 , a coming soon, and the latest DLC fighter for Mortal Kombat 11 .
Physically, the character looks like famous mega action star Arnold Schwarzenegger and captures his look from the new film. Gameplay is excellent, brutal, and well researched with how the character moves and attacks. I particularly like the small attention to detail that the developers have put into the game. For example, the opening introduction sees Arnold hiding his shotgun in a box that’s very similar to what he did in Terminator 2, but instead of a box of roses, it’s a box of Johnny Cage action figures.
When it comes to gameplay, the Terminator primarily relies on his shotgun, but other aspects of the lore of the franchise have been adapted for gameplay purposes, one of which is the time sphere that he uses to teleport to the past in the movies; it can now be used to teleport from one side of the screen to another. The character also has grenades, a machine gun, and hand-to-hand combat with more grapple options than I thought he would get.
One of the more interesting aspects of the character is this mechanic where, when he is burned, his clothing and flesh disintegrate and he’s in full metallic skeleton mode. It’s here that it looks like his defense has raised and some attacks won’t work on him, like Scorpion’s chain pull move. The one area that fans will be disappointed with is the voice acting. For whatever reason, NetherRealm Studios couldn’t get Arnold Schwarzenegger to voice the fighter. They did find an actor who tries to capture how Arnold speaks, and it’s serviceable; I didn’t mind it. Out of everything the character will be doing, talking is least.
The Terminator becomes playable for season pass owners on October 8th. Those without the pass will be able to purchase him a week later. The Double Feature skin pack will also become available, and Cassie Cage mains will be happy to see that the character will get an exclusive Harley Quinn skin in time for the next DLC fighter.
Mortal Kombat 11 is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and it will be coming to Google Stadia at a later time. As someone who loves Mortal Kombat, and with fighting games usually getting more than one season of content, I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on NetherRealm Studios and their social medias. Make sure you do too and follow them on , , and their official website .
