You son of a bitch! Mortal Kombat X DLC recreates film's most famous handshake

You can already play as the Predator in Mortal Kombat X, but now you can also celebrate your love of what is undoubtedly one of the finest action movies ever created - or at least, one of the most quotable - with the Predator / Prey DLC, which gives Predator-inspired skins to Johnny Cage, Jax and Scorpion.

Infrared Scorpion lets fighters see the undead ninja as the intergalactic hunter would: glowing with body heat. (Sorry, no mud to cover yourself with in the Netherrealm.) Commando Johnny Cage suits up the limber fighter in Schwarzenegger's sleeveless duds, and Carl Weathers as Jax is … well, it's basically Carl Weathers cosplaying as Jax.

The real fun comes from how the characters interact with one another, and the hidden references therein. For example, if you pit Commando Johnny Cage and Carl Weathers Jax against one another, Cage will exclaim "You son of a bitch!" before giving his opponent this manly handshake. The Predator / Prey DLC skin pack is available now for $3.99.
