The new XBL release schedule for April 12-25 has been released, and there's no MK demo on it. But Avatar gear does come out on the 19th. Nothing unexpected, but just thought I would say, since it's official and all.

Yeah, I too have a ton of points saved up for MK. DLC (and according to Boon's Twitter, they're doing the mocap for the fatalities today) and avatar gear.

Nice. Hopefully there's some fun stuff. Could you imagine watching your avatar rip another's head off? I'd pay good money to see that, but noooo, they want to keep avatars kid-friendly. Still want my Gears lancer...

Let me guess, you're getting the Mileena costume? (If it's available)

YouTube - Mortal Kombat live stream with Machinima.com!!

LIVE STREAM! Hurry up before it ends, I'm guessing it started 30 min ago.

A live stream!!!! Ohmahgawd! This is amazing!

I've managed to join during a Stryker match.

EDITS:

Jade's staff is sorta like a lightsabre in the way it can shut down.

Rounds begin immediately after, no standing at the start points.

They are NOT letting us see the X-Box character select screen intentionally... interesting.

TOASTY! is back!

Zombie Liu Kang is a character skin??

Stryker had zombie skin as well so I guess you can add zombie flavor to a match.

Stryker's X-ray ends with a taser shot :P

There is a test your luck VS mode!

Sweet, can't wait to play the game, Avatar costumes will be cool to see.

Happy with the zombie look being able to be used outside of the tower mode :)

Just spent my last few points on the operation Flashpoint outfit thinking nothing better was coming for a while, had no idea there was going to be mortal kombat gear. Time to increase my balance.

Man I hope we at least get the avatar gear here in australia! Surely that can't come under the ban can it?

They've been doing this since Deception, why is everybody on the internet so happy that the rounds are like this?

The only thing I saw when I searched the Xbox Live Marketplace was a Kombat Pass, which I presume is for anyone who buys the game used so that they can access the multiplayer experience.

Well, per the schedule, the avatar gear won't come out until Tuesday (oh man does it feel good saying that without having to use the word "next" or whatever with it. :)). But yeah.... the online pass is purchasable now though, apparently for reviewers (at least per TRMK's Twitter).

The Avatar content and Retro Ninja costumes are included in the KE, glad I ordered it.

I don't think avatar gear is included, theres no actual violence with avatars so it should be alright, I'm fairly sure we got Left 4 Dead 2 gear so i assume we'll get the mortal kombat gear as well
