The latest character highlighted for Mortal Kombat 11’s epic DLC Kombat Pack is none other than Queen Sindel, a longtime fan favorite in the Mortal Kombat Franchise.

Sindel’s mind-blowing gameplay was shown off in a special trailer released on November 14.

You can view the trailer in its entirety below.

“The Scream Queen has returned with a thirst for Kombat,” the official PlayStation YouTube account writes in its description for the video.

Sindel made her first appearance as a playable character in Mortal Kombat 3 and has remained a staple of the franchise ever since. She is the mother of longtime Mortal Kombat hero Princess Kitana and the wife of the ultimate Mortal Kombat antagonist Shao Khan.

Sindel has always been known for her signature scream, which can we weaponized and used to fling enemy combatants across the fighting stage.

In the official storyline of the games, Sindel was the wife of the king of Edenia, and together they had Princess Kitana. Edenia lost 10 straight Mortal Kombat tournaments to Shao Khan, and the evil emperor conquered the realm, remaking it into Outworld. Khan took Sindel as his wife and adopted Kitana shortly thereafter. Eventually, Sindel died.

When the warriors of Earthrealm defeat both the sorcerer Shang Tsung and Shao Khan himself, a plot is enacted to forcibly take control of Earthrealm, using Sindel as the main instrument of the conquest. The queen is resurrected on Earth, which means that Shao Khan is able to cross the portal into Earthrealm in order to claim her.

Sindel serves Khan throughout the series, which often puts her at odds with her daughter Kitana and the warriors of Earthrealm who follow Raiden.

Sindel gained some infamy for her role in the widely despised film Mortal Kombat Annihilation, uttering perhaps one of the worst lines in cinema history, “Too bad you….WILL DIE!”

Check it out in the above video at 1:15. It’s truly horrid.

Sindel regained some of her good reputation in Mortal Kombat 9, a 2011 soft reboot of the franchise released on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation Vita, and PC.

The game recreates the events of the first three Mortal Kombat games with different outcomes. Sindel is once more resurrected on Earth, but this time she single-handedly takes down the majority of Earthrealm’s warriors in one of the game’s most epic cutscenes.

The Kombat Pack includes Sindel along with longtime Mortal Kombat favorites Shang Tsung and Nightwolf. It will also include the comic book hero Spawn, DC’s villain The Joker, and even Arnold Schwarzenegger’s iconic Terminator T-800.

The full Kombat Pack releases on December 3, but players can get Sindel through Early Access on November 26.
