Bruce Campbell hints at Mortal Kombat 11 appearance
It’s been an eventful month for both Bruce Campbell and the latest installment in the classic fighting game series, Mortal Kombat 11, with the former denying rumors he would appear in the game and the latter becoming the second-best selling game of the year, but now it looks like the first bit might no longer be the case.
After rumors began swirling that the 60-year-old actor’s popular horror character, Ash Williams from the Evil Dead franchise, would appear as a guest character in an upcoming DLC pack for the fighting game, he took to Twitter to seemingly shoot this down.

However, in response to the new trailer for the first DLC Kombat Pack highlighting the additions of Shang Tsung, Night Wolf, Sindel, Spawn and two mystery guests, Campbell took to Twitter again with a seemingly cryptic message shooting down his shoot down.
Boy, looks like a swell game – I’ll have to check it out! https://t.co/y5b7e2zr91

It’s not currently known when the other two guests will be revealed or if they will prior to the DLC’s release, but either way fans won’t have to wait long as Kombat Pack 1 is set for release on June 18!
In the next evolution of the franchise, Mortal Kombat 11 introduces a new Custom Character Variations, giving you unprecedented control to customize the fighters and make them your own. The new graphics engine showcasing every skull-shattering, eye-popping moment, brings you so close to the fight you can feel it. And featuring a roster of new and returning Klassic Fighters, Mortal Kombat’s best in class cinematic story mode continues the epic saga over 25 years in the making.
The last game in the series, Mortal Kombat X, was released in 2015 to critical acclaim and high sales. The game even won Best Fighting Game at The Game Awards 2015, but the series has remained dormant since then.
The Warner Bros. Interactive and NetherRealm Studios game arrived on April 23 on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
