Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios have revealed a new Mortal Kombat 11 gameplay trailer debuting Todd McFarlane’s world record-breaking comic book character, Spawn. He will join the Mortal Kombat 11 roster on March 17 as part of the early access period for Kombat Pack owners, followed by wide availability on March 24.

The new video shows off the latest playable fighter’s iconic look, including his signature cape, chains, battle axe and more, which can all be used against opponents. The trailer also features two unreleased music tracks from a heavy metal band, Trivium, entitled “IX” and “Scattering the Ashes.”

Spawn was formerly Al Simmons, the U.S. government's greatest soldier, and most effective assassin, before being mercilessly executed by his own men. Resurrected from the ashes of his own grave in a flawed agreement with the powers of darkness, Simmons was reborn as a creature from the depths of Hell – a Hellspawn. Now, he is thrust into the world of Mortal Kombat 11, where he will fight for supremacy against all Kombatants.

Spawn is voiced by actor Keith David, the original voice actor from “Todd McFarlane’s Spawn,” the Emmy award-winning HBO animated series.

Kombat Pack owners will also have access to the new Spawn-inspired character skin, “Hellspawn” Jacqui Briggs, on March 17, alongside the Matinee Skin Pack featuring “Osh Tekk Vandal” Kotal Kahn, “Swashbuckler” Erron Black and “Space Marine” Jacqui Briggs.
