NetherRealm Studios have released a new compatibility patch in anticipation of Predator’s arrival in Mortal Kombat X on July 7 for owners of the Kombat Pack.

Patch 1.07 introduces a number of new additions, including a free Klassic Ermac skin that is available to all players. The update also includes previews for three new skins that will come bundled with Predator, including MK3 Jax, MK3 Kung Lao and MK4 Quan Chi. Also of note is that Jax, Johnny Cage, Kitana, Kung Lao, Mileena, Scorpion, Sonya Blade and Sub-Zero all seem to have gained a third Fatality, although they are currently locked.
