Free Sub-Zero Skins Ice-Sliding To Mortal Kombat Next Week

By Ishaan . August 5, 2011 . 1:32pm

Warner Bros. released a trailer for even more Mortal Kombat DLC this week. Next up on the DLC platter are additional skins for Sub-Zero…both of them. There’s Sub-Zero without his mask from Mortal Kombat 3 and a “retro” Cyber Sub-Zero re-design:



Both skins are free downloads, available in the game’s fourth compatibility pack DLC. They’re also included in the Fredd Krueger DLC pack, which you have to pay for. You’ll be able to grab them on August 9th.

        … i think the math may be off a bit there.

    look like the unmask sub-zero have the same move lists in this game

    • HistorysGreatestMonster

      Well, yeah, because it’s only an alt character skin, not a new character.

  • Capcom could really learn a thing or two from this…

      It’s just to get people to download the compatibility packs. IMO, most people wouldn’t unless there was an incentive. A lot of people probably wouldn’t even know what they were.

         What I don’t understand is why they went this way, with the compatibility packs, as opposed to forcing mandatory patches for these packs like other games do with online content updates.

        Sure it’s more convenient for Single Player-only people, but that means much more troubles in the online community because of people who don’t get the compatibility packs.

        • Selaphiel

           “On-Patch DLC”? lol

          • Chow

            Well, mandatory patches for online-multiplayer DLC makes sense, since the people who play online have to have the latest patch in order to sign into PSN/XBox Live anyway.

            I think this is the first game I’ve played (I’m sure there’s others too) where they went this route as opposed to those mandatory patches.

          • HistorysGreatestMonster

            Super Street Fighter IV also, for some odd reason, chose not to go with a patch for the last set of alternate outfits.

        • HistorysGreatestMonster

          This I completely agree with. I still don’t understand why it wasn’t a mandatory patch.

  • HistorysGreatestMonster

    Nice to see that Sub Zero is Asian, this time. Always thought it was odd that he was suddenly a white guy in MK3.

  • Chow

    Just to nitpick,  MK3 Sub-Zero doesn’t have the black T-shirt (among other things I won’t bother mentioning).  It just sorta looks weird.  I hope they fix that before the compatibility pack goes live.

    Though, I would’ve preferred a full MK3 Klassic Sub-Zero suit.

    • HistorysGreatestMonster

      Honestly, I like it better with the shirt. Always thought it looked silly that he was wearing this neon blue outfit with no shirt.

  • NTyron52

    This is kinda ironic, when I first saw the retro Cyber Subzero DLC costume, I immediately thought about Hydro from that Mortal Kombat MUGEN game.

    Even more ironic, in the lastest episode of Mortal Kombat Legacy, there is a robot called Hydro who fights against Cyrax and Sektor.

    It sounds like they acknowledge that MUGEN game, I might be wrong though.
