Also in a bombshell that surprised the community, Goro was announced as the Pre-Order Bonus. Yes folks, he’s a playable character in Mortal Kombat X. Rejoice. While it doesn’t mark the first time Goro has been a playable character, it is still a first for the series. The Mortal Kombat franchise has never delved into pre-order bonuses as big (literally!) as this. Sure, costumes have been used as DLC-carrots before but never a whole character.
So I tweeted a couple of images Goro & then THIS happens. What are the odds? pic.twitter.com/UBBw4Sn0fs— Ed Boon (@noobde) September 5, 2014
This begs the question – for those that DON’T pre-order, how do they get access to Goro? Is he unlockable through normal gameplay or is this a timed release? Stay tuned for more!
