Kick-starting right after MK11 final boss battle, Aftermath DLC debuts of two returning series character; Shokan warrior Sheeva, God of Wind Fujin and cybernetic cop from a distant future, officer Alex Murphy AKA Robocop from 80's movie.

Though story premise of Aftermath may not suit Robocop much, players are still very much intrigued to see how everyone's favorite android police character plays out and eventually fares against greatest protectors of Earthrealm.

Often assisted by peacekeeping machine ED-209, majority of RoboCop's moves are mostly shooting-based including Fatality and Krushing Blows. Fujin specializes in aerial attacks and Sheeva excels in stomping over her opponents.

Just like any other guest fighters, RoboCop had a gray suit in first film and it was much bluer in RoboCop 2. MK11: Aftermath expansion will feature both of them to choose from and a Cyber Ninja RoboCop variant, which is NetherRealm version.

Mortal Kombat 11 has already added The Joker from DC Comics and Terminator T-800 from The Terminator franchise. RoboCop is their latest inclusion to DLC character roster from non-Mortal Kombat media for upcoming Kombat Pack 2.

When Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath finally launches, how these fighters interact with existing roster will be worth looking forward to. Purchasing early on PS4 gets you a free MK11 dynamic theme of Raiden and Liu Kang as pre-order bonus.

Hollywood superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger will join as Major Dutch Schaefer for Predator: Hunting Grounds in May 26, 2020.

Recreating legacy of a classic space alien, online asymmetrical shooter title Predator: Hunting Grounds by developer IllFonic and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment has debuted back in April 2020 for Windows PC and PlayStation 4.

IllFonic was heavily inspired by '87 original Predator movie while working on Hunting Grounds and bringing back Arnold in one of his most iconic role is a truly wholesome experience for entire dev team as well as player community.

First free update is set to release on May 26, which will revive Dutch's story and integrate into in-game universe. Anyone who owns base game can learn where Dutch has been for all these years and hear it in voice tapes as you progress.

A paid DLC will follow on same day that gives you playable version of Dutch, alongside his early access to his QR5 "Hammerhead" Rifle and knife. All players will receive these weapons later in June for free though another monthly update.

Dutch has aged up over time and getting his image right by working with Arnold himself is no child's play. Since Schwarzenegger has never appeared in any related media franchise since 1987, these add-ons will be canon in Predator universe.

Though there are no details on whether Dutch will have any unique gameplay traits, it is safe to assume that Schwarzenegger will surely drop some of his catchy one liner jokes as he and his fellow Fireteam members give chase to lone Predator.

Predator: Hunting Grounds revealed its initial DLC roadmap as part of post-launch support with more to arrive soon. In coming months, IllFonic will be offering more free and paid content to players featuring game modes, weapons and more.
