  2. The character will be available in early access on March 17, while his full debut will take place on March 24.

As previously announced, the next hero to appear in Mortal Kombat 11 as part of the Kombat Back season pass will be Spawn.

Spawn was born in 1992 on the pages of comic books by Todd McFarlane. The superhero's true identity is Al Simmons, a member of the American Secret Service. After he was murdered, he made a pact with the demon Malebolgia (identified with Satan) - in exchange for the opportunity to meet his wife again, he pledged to serve Hell as an assassin. In this way Simmons returned to the world of the living, in a new body built of psychoplasm and endowed with supernatural powers.

Spawn will soon appear in Mortal Kombat 11.

From other news related to Mortal Kombat 11, last weekend the Final Kombat 2020 tournament was to take place in Chicago. Unfortunately, it was closed to the public. Moreover, the last chance qualifying tournament, which was supposed to be attended by more than 200 people, was cancelled. As it is not difficult to guess, the reason for these steps was coronavirus.

Although NetherRealm promised to reimburse the cost of tickets to all those who bought them, the whole situation was still quite controversial. All because the decision to change the character of Final Kombat 2020 tournament appeared only a day before the start of the event, which may bring to mind a similar situation related to recent IEM in Poland. According to some Internet users, such behavior of the organisers is irresponsible and unacceptable (via VG247).
