According to our source, the DLC pack will include the sci-fi villain and Colonel Al Dillon, the CIA agent killed in the original movie. Carl Weathers, the actor who played Dillon, has allegedly offered his likeness for use in the game, too.

Warner Bros. has yet to announce DLC plans for Mortal Kombat X. However, in July last year, creative director Ed Boon retweeted an image (pictured above) of Predator superimposed onto the Mortal Kombat X key art, along with the words "Oh snap!!".

2011's Mortal Kombat also featured guest characters from other universes, including God of War's Kratos and Nightmare On Elm Street's Freddie Krueger.

Warner Bros. declined to comment on the rumour when contacted by this afternoon.

Mortal Kombat X launches on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on April 14. You can pre-order Mortal Kombat X at
