Mortal Kombat 11 has been steadily adding new content to the game since it’s release earlier this year, but the game doesn’t have any sign of slowing down yet. Along with the new characters that have been making their way into the game, NetherRealm is launching a big Halloween event next week that is going to bring a bunch of cool changes for fans.

The event officially begins on October 25th and will last for a full week, ending on November 1st. Throughout the event, players will be able to take part in four new boss fights, each with new Halloween-themed modifiers that will change up the way you play. So far, no information has been given about the actual bosses, but details about the modifiers have been released, and they sound pretty crazy.

During fights, you’ll not only have to deal with your opponent, but spooky obstacles like rising gravestones, flying witches and bats, falling pumpkins, and even unlucky black cats that run across the screen will all make things even more complicated.

Along with these changes to certain fights, you’ll also be able to unlock new in-game rewards, including new player modules, a bunch of Halloween-themed consumables, and even some cool new Brutalities. There is a lot of new content to be had in this week-long event, and it seems like a perfect time to jump back in if you haven’t played Mortal Kombat 11 in a while.

If you just can’t wait for the event to start, there are some great new skins that you can purchase in the online store starting today. The DLC, which is called the Masquerade Skin Pack, is available for $5.99 and contains skins for three fighters; Wicked With Jade, Psycho Killer Kabal, and Calavera Liu Kang. You can check out the outfits in the official trailer posted above.

All of the new content is arriving just weeks after the release of the game’s newest competitor, the T-800 Terminator. There are still several more characters on the way, as well. Sindel is going to be arriving toward the end of November for those who have purchased the Kombat Pack, with the option to purchase her separately most likely coming a week or so later.

In January, Mortal Kombat 11 will be getting its own version of DC Comics’ The Joker, which has already sparked some controversy over his new look. Last, but not least, Todd McFarlane’s Spawn is entering the fight in March of 2020.

You can pick up Mortal Kombat 11 on Nintendo Switch, PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 now.
