e-mail has seemingly leaked that Ash Williams from the Evil Dead franchise, specifically from Army of Darkness, will be arriving soon in Mortal Kombat 11 as a DLC fighter.In an e-mail received by IGN, which you can see below, all of the DLC characters from third-parties, including Terminator, Joker, and Spawn, appear with their company names and trademarks.
Alongside these characters is a line referring to “‘ASH’ character from ‘ARMY OF DARKNESS,'” who has yet to be announced.
This wouldn’t be the first game Ash, who is played by Bruce Campbell, has appeared in, as he also was introduced as a playable character in Dead by Daylight.
Ash was one of the characters that was part of a massive Mortal Kombat 11 leak back in April 2019 from dataminers who dug through the game’s files and uncovered a list of the names of potential new fighters.
The latest Mortal Kombat 11 DLC fighter, Spawn, was released earlier this month. In our review, we said “Spawn doesn’t quite dethrone Joker as the best of the Kombat Pack, but his unique and versatile moveset is a blast.”You can check out our reviews for all the other DLC characters, including Shang Tsung, Nightwolf, Terminator T-800, Sindel, and Joker.
Mortal Kombat 11 won our award for Best Fighting Game of 2019, and in our review, we said “It’s a rare fighting game that hits just about every note as strongly as Mortal Kombat 11 does. Everything from its methodical and deep combat to its fantastically absurd story mode and its rock-solid netcode, right down to its extraordinarily comprehensive tutorial is absolutely exceptional.”
