There's more Mortal Kombat X DLC on the way - but who's joining the fray?

The Kombat Pack was a neat mixture of fighters, bringing back old favourites, promoting background characters, and roping in some cross-media icons. And then we found out it was only the first of its kind - Warner Bros. has confirmed that Mortal Kombat X is getting a second round of DLC, comprising "new playable characters, skins and a new environment, all of which will be available in the first half of 2016."

Series creator Ed Boon has been teasing the announcement on his Twitter feed all week, culminating in the image above, confirming that we'll see at least four more characters in that pack. As for the rest of the DLC, Boon posted the following tweet, which looks very much like a return (an encore, hmm?) of The Pit, the moonlit stage that's been evolving since the first game in the series:

So, who will those new fighters be? I'm going for (from left to right): Vin Diesel as Riddick with a skin disease, a beefed-up Troll doll, Geordi La Forge and a huge egg on top of a Chinese suit.

Seen something newsworthy? Tell us!
