Peacemaker, Janet Cage, Krossplay and Free Trial Weekend coming to Mortal Kombat 1

Do you love peace so much that you’ll commit all sorts of violence to protect it? If so Peacemaker is the character for you! The breakout character from James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad and the HBO Max series of the same name is coming to Mortal Kombat as the next kombatant in Mortal Kombat 1’s first Kombat Pack. Sporting a chrome helmet which features a variety of tricks, plenty of firearms to keep the peace and a Eagle named Eagly he can summon to really put the hurt on those looking to oppose him. The character will be voiced and look like John Cena, the man who has portrayed the character in both film and TV. Peackeeper will be available for owners of the Kombat Pack on February 28th and a la carte purchasers on March 6th.

Backing up Peacemaker in his gameplay trailer is the alternate universe, genderbent version of Johnny Cage, Janet Cage (or is Johnny the genderbent version of Janet?)! But whatever universe they hail from Cage is plenty cocky and can definitely back it up. She’ll be a great addition to the Kameo Fighter pool and will be available for Kombat Pack owners in March 2024.

The universe of players you can take on will get wider when Krossplay will be enabled allowing fighters of the realms of PC, Xbox and PlayStation to take each other on to determine who is the strongest amongst them all. Krossplay will be enabled for 1v1 Kombat League and Kasual Matches. Leaderboards will also be merged. This change is set to go live on February 28th.

For those who have not tasted the fruits of Fire God Liu Kang’s hard work, fret not! You will have an opportunity to try out Mortal Kombat 1 when the game gets a free trial during the weekend of March 7th to the 10th. Try all the characters in the base edition of the game, experience the first 2 chapters of Mortal Kombat 1 and try the Invasions mode. If the trial has piqued your interest the game in its base and deluxe versions will be available for 40% off its regular price. So don’t out on a chance at picking up the latest edition of Mortal Kombat.

Mortal Kombat 1 is available now on PC, PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X|S.
