Mortal Kombat 1 Omni-Man Release Date Confirmed, Gruesome Gameplay Trailer Revealed

Mortal Kombat 1’s first DLC character, Omni-Man, is available to download from November 9, Warner Bros. Games and developer NetherRealm have announced.

The announcement comes alongside a gameplay trailer for Omni-Man, who is lifted from the Invincible franchise complete with voice work from J. K. Simmons, who plays the character in the Amazon Prime show.

The gameplay shows off a number of Omni-Man’s moves, which are as hard-hitting as you’d expect for such a powerful supervillain. One highlight is Omni-Man’s dodge ability, which sees Nolan Grayson move to avoid multiple attacks from his opponent. We also get to see Omni-Man’s Fatal Blow, which is lifted from Invincible, as well as his train Fatality, which is also lifted from an infamous Invincible scene.

Onni-Man is joined in the gameplay trailer by new Kameo fighter Tremor, who we assume launches alongside Omni-Man himself.

Omni-Man is the first playable character in Mortal Kombat’s Kombat Pack 1 and will be available as a standalone fighter or as part of the Mortal Kombat 1 Premium Edition. Other DLC characters set to come out as part of Kombat 1 are Quan Chi, Peacemaker, Ermac, Homelander, and Takeda.

In August, Mortal Kombat development chief Ed Boon told IGN Omni-Man and Homelander from The Boys won’t just be clones of each other, despite striking similarities in power and abilities.

Mortal Kombat 1 has proven to be a somewhat controversial release, with its Nintendo Switch version accused of poor visuals and performance issues. Mortal Kombat 1 recently horrified fans by charging around $10 for a Halloween-themed Fatality.
