NetherRealm Studios has been on a role with their line-up of guest characters for Mortal Kombat 11. To put it simply, it’s nostalgic badassery with every guest fighter that’s added to the roster. Characters like Mileena and Shang Tsung (with Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa’s likeness to boot!) were awesome already, but guests like Spawn, The Terminator, and Robocop transcend games as they’re pop-cultural icons in their own rights that can spark so much nostalgia for their long time fans, especially if those same fans also like Mortal Kombat.
The nostalgia remains strong as John Rambo, voiced by the one and only Sylvester Stallone himself, was recently revealed to join Mileena and Rain in the upcoming Kombat Pack 2. And a few days after, we finally get a Gameplay trailer revealing what the man, who can kill as easily as breathing, can do.
Bringing his brand of warfare into the Mortal Kombat arena, Rambo wipes the floor with his opponents using an array of weapons from his iconic survival knife, and bow and arrows, to landmines and booby traps. Rambo strikes fast and brutal with precision and ferocity that only the man who survived war by becoming war can do. A total badass that throws a grenade at you and will look away because cool guys don’t look at explosions.
He can even get around with a pretty long slide attack and can crawl towards you ala Solid Snake, avoiding projectiles and getting in a sneaky knife swipe to the foot. Of course we didn’t forget about the machine guns. They’re as much a part of Rambo as his signature sweatband. And that iconic winning pose just has to be seen.
Become the hunter as Rambo is included with Kombat Pack 2, along with returning MK veterans Mileena and Rain. Or if you haven’t gotten Mortal Kombat 11 yet, there’s also Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate which includes both Kombat Packs 1 and 2, as well as the Aftermath Expansion for that full MK11 experience.
