If you’ve been chomping at the bit in anticipation of showing off your favourite Boomstick fatality in the upcoming Mortal Kombat 11 DLC then we’re afraid we have some bad news.
According to the man himself, Bruce Campbell’s iconic Ash Williams character will NOT be made available as part of the MK11 DLC pack, despite constant rumours to the contrary. Campbell, who played Ash in 3 Evil Dead movies and a short-lived but groovy TV spin-off, took to his official Twitter account to discredit this persistent story with a rather fun parody graphic.
Had Ash appeared as a guest character on the popular fighting game series, he would have joined a long list of horror icons who have appeared in video games over the years, including The Walking Dead’s Negan and Freddy Krueger.
You can play Mortal Kombat 11 now on PS4, PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. It will sadly just have no added extra chins.
