"Mortal Kombat X" is still going strong after one year in the market, and what better way to maintain that momentum than by releasing a brand new Kombat Pack to its fanbase? The second Kombat Pack released by developer NetherRealm Studios adds four new playable characters and a whole set of new skins to the PC version of game, which released on October 4.

(Before you read, please take note that things might get a little confusing from here. This is due to all the different versions of the game released earlier for the other platforms.)

Kombat Pack 2 was released for "Mortal Kombat X" and mostly added new characters to the PC version of the game. The update added drunken kung fu master Bo Rai Cho, who originally debuted in 2003's "Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance." He is from the lore and new character Triborg, a combination of all the cyborg characters from the franchise.

From the cinema world, the Xenomorph from the movie "Alien," and Leatherface from the movie "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" are also added. Fans on other consoles already know that you can play them on the other versions of "Mortal Kombat XL," according to Game Rant.

In addition to new playable characters, there's also the inclusion of themed skin packs for the preexisting "Mortal Kombat X" characters. There are new looks from the different skin packs for Erron Black, Takeda, D'Vorah, Ermac, Reptile, Scorpion, and a lot more.

In addition to that, the Kombat Pack 2 also brings in a number of gameplay and balance changes to "Mortal Kombat X." According to the official patch notes from the Warner Bros. community page for the game, energy costs for various moves and things have been slightly increased, frame tricks have been fixed, among many other things. The Kombat Pack 2 is available for PC players on Steam for only $9.99, and expect a brand new Kombat Pack for other versions of the game soon.
