Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios have revealed a brand new trailer for Mortal Kombat 11, giving us a first proper look at upcoming character, Spawn.

The video comes from Final Kombat 2020, the championship finale of the Mortal Kombat 11 Pro Kompetition eSports series, and shows us just how the latest playable fighter will look in action. You can see Spawn's signature cape, chains, battle axe and more, which can all be used against opponents.

A press release introducing the video gives us a little more background info on the character:

Spawn was formerly Al Simmons, the U.S. government's greatest soldier and most effective assassin, before being mercilessly executed by his own men. Resurrected from the ashes of his own grave in a flawed agreement with the powers of darkness, Simmons was reborn as a creature from the depths of Hell – a Hellspawn. Now, he is thrust into the world of Mortal Kombat 11, where he will fight for supremacy against all Kombatants.

Spawn is voiced by actor Keith David, the original voice actor from “Todd McFarlane’s Spawn,” the Emmy award-winning HBO animated series. The new guest character will join the Mortal Kombat 11 roster on 17th March as part of the early access period for Kombat Pack owners, followed by wide availability on 24th March.

As noted above, Spawn will be available to all players from 24th March, but Kombat Pack owners will get him slightly earlier on the 17th. Kombat Pack owners will also have access to the new Spawn-inspired character skin, “Hellspawn” Jacqui Briggs, alongside the Matinee Skin Pack featuring “Osh Tekk Vandal” Kotal Kahn, “Swashbuckler” Erron Black, and “Space Marine” Jacqui Briggs.
