The arrival of Tanya had been teased and now a release date has been announced. Ed Boon, Mortal Kombat X’s creative director, made the announcement via Twitter that Tanya will be playable on June 2nd as part of the Kombat Pack DLC. One week later, she will be available to all Mortal Kombat X players for individual purchase.
Tanya will become the second character released for the Kombat Pack, following Jason Voorhees. Two more additional characters, Tremor and Predator, are still to follow.
Mortal Kombat X is easily one of my favorite games this year. It is gorgeous and so much fun to play. I currently have no immediate plans to purchase the Kombat Pack or Tanya, but could see myself getting it down the road. The fighters already present in the game appeal to me more and I prefer the older design of Tanya to the current one. Warner Bros. aren’t the best when it comes to depicting female faces and Tanya is further evidence of that.
