Mortal Kombat 11 is already one of the best fighting games on the market with an impressive roster of fighters. Now, the roster is growing even bigger and crazier with an assortment of interesting crossover characters and old-school Mortal Kombat favorites.

In an announcement made today by developer Netherrealm, the full line-up of characters coming to Mortal Kombat 11 via the Kombat Pack has been revealed. Two of the character, Shang Tsung and Nightwolf, are both available now, with the other four coming out over the six months or so.

Fans of the Mortal Kombat franchise will immediately recognize Queen Sindel, who was first introduced into the series in Mortal Kombat 3. Sindel is the mother of Kitana, and the ruler of an otherwordly realm known as Edenia. This marks her return to the franchise after being absent from Mortal Kombat X, in which she only appeared as a non-playable character.

The biggest additions, however, are from different worlds entirely. First up is the Terminator T-800, which will come in the form of the older Arnold Schwarzenegger from the upcoming film Terminator: Dark Fate. His appearances is incredibly faithful to the source material, complete with the classic leather jacket and a glowing red eye that shines through his battle-damaged face.

Next up is the Joker, who has a notably different appearance than his Injustice counterpart. This version of the joker is a bit more grounded in reality–as much as a clown-makeup-wearing psychopath can be grounded in reality–presumably to fit in better with the overall look and feel of the Mortal Kombat universe.

The final fighter to enter the arena is the big bad nightmare of the underworld, Spawn. There were rumors a couple of years ago that he would be coming to Injustice 2, with Ed Boon himself making several hints about the character. Because of the mature nature of the Spawn franchise, its understandable that he made the move to Mortal Kombat 11 instead, since he’s sure to dish out some cool fatalities with his cloak and chains.

Here is the full line-up, along with release dates:

  • Shang Tsung (Out Now)
  • Nightwolf (Out Now)
  • Terminator T-800 (Available October 8)
  • Sindel (Available November 26)
  • The Joker (Available January 28)
  • Spawn (Available March 17)

The release of Spawn will mark the end of the Kombat Pass, though there is always the chance that a second set of DLC is in the works, as well. So far, it’s an impressive line-up, with some awesome crossover characters coming to the Mortal Kombat realm.

It will be especially cool to see their different outfits and gear upon release… maybe we can get Medieval Spawn? Or Gunslinger Spawn? Please?
