NetherRealm Studios has confirmed when its next DLC fighter will arrive in the game, with Peacemaker now scheduled to arrive in early access by the end of the month.

The date was confirmed by the game’s official X (formerly Twitter account) and it seems he’s coming slightly later than many fans expected. Indeed, an in-game timer that previously was counting down to an earlier release was spotted to have changed by users, and now it seems Peacemaker will now land at the same time as the in-game Season 4.

Here’s what we know so far.

Mortal Kombat 1 Peacemaker release date

As per NetherRealm Studios, Peacemaker is set to be available in early access from February 28, 2024. Bear in mind, this ‘early access’ is specifically for people who already bought the Mortal Kombat 1 Kombat Pack 1 DLC or the game’s special editions, which entitles them to one week’s headstart on everyone else.

He’ll then be available separately from the pack to everyone one week later, on March 6, 2024.

Peacemaker, as portrayed by WWE and Hollywood superstar John Cena, will also be accompanied by his pet eagle, Eagly – who’ll also get involved in the action via his Crushing Blow and Fatality.

Mortal Kombat 1 Janet Cage release window

The first gameplay trailer gave us another little shot of information, revealing that Janet Cage – a female alternative universe version of Johnny Cage – will be arriving as a Kameo fighter “later in March” although a specific date hasn’t been given.

Peacemaker follows the release of the other Mortal Kombat 1 DLC fighters so far, which has included Omni Man from Amazon’s Invincible animated series in Season 2 as well as Quan Chi as Season 3’s character. They’re usually closely followed by a brand new Kameo fighter a few weeks later, with Tremor and Khameleon available so far. We’re still waiting for the arrival of Mavado and Ferra.
