We’re wondering how a hulking beast like Friday the 13th’s Jason Voorhees can stand toe-to-toe against fast paced special forces, shaolin monks and outworld creatures that make up the cast of Mortal Kombat X. Thanks to a new gameplay trailer, we get a taste of what the horror icon can do.
Our preview of Jason was extended thanks to a Livestream with NetherRealm, who showed off the 3 Variations for the character. The variations were titled Slasher, Relentless, and Unstoppable.
Slasher uses the machete for a variety of weapon attacks. Relentless gives him a grapple-based approach; as well as a “pursuit” move that flips his opponent’s attack buttons to make it more difficult for them to counter you, and adds a Teleport move because Jason is always finding a way to sneak up on his prey. Unstoppable add an undead twist where he can regenerate life, and activate a special move that makes his attacks significantly more powerful.
Jason will be available to everyone who purchased the $30 season pass later today; May 5th, for everyone else, Jason will be available on May 12th for $5. Season pass owners can also pick up the Horror Kostume pack for Ermac, Meleena and Reptile, non-season pass owners can pick up this pack for $4, or with Jason for $8.
