I mean with that cliff hanger ending and all are they gonna make us wait until MK10 to see what happens next.
So... Story mode DLC.(potential spoilers, beware)
Yeah, I think only costumes, fatalities (and it's variants i.e. Friendship, Brutality, etc), characters (and their arcade endings as specified), and stages are the only thing we can expect for dlc. I'm pretty they're saving story stuff for the next installment.
I honestly hope they don't continue the story as it where in MK4 cause that was a terrible game, its when things started going down hill and very fast. The game was chuck full new moronic fighters that brought nothing new to the table.
After the incredible product that Mortal Kombat (2011) was I have every faith that Netherealm can make a continuation of the story into something amazing and fun. This is Mortal Kombat after all and death is merely an inconvenience for most characters.
As for Bo Rai Cho him and Kenshi are the only characters who appear dead at the beginning of story mode who arn't in the actual game. We already know Kenshi is coming and Boon tweeted about Bo Rai Cho's X-Ray being brutal. So...yeah.

"they need to redesign bo then. because he was just a joke before. he needs to be a more serious and badass teacher this time around. and ditch the dumb barfing move
"liu kang died in like 5? and came back in 6 as a zombie. i think zombie liu kang is even one of the dead bodies on the steps in the opening cinematic to the story mode in mk9Heh, I totally considered story mode DLC myself a while ago, pretty weird that one could look forward to more of a fighting game because of the story...I'd love for them to take it in a different direction from what I've read about MK 4 and on. For instance, in two of the story mode endings Liu Kang has become a god (and he looks badass). Since he died it'd be cool if he got all pissed with Raiden and requested godhood from the elder gods, becoming sort of a rival to him. Though I don't know how death and all that works in MK, if he could even speak with the elder gods or why they would grant it to him if his ultimate motive is revenge ( I guess he could go with "Hey, Raiden did a pretty shitty job, I could do way better!") but a guy can dream, can't he? "
It amazes me how many people don't understand the concept of a cliff hanger.. Many games like this get so much undeserved flak for having "cliffhangers". The game ended, we saw how the MK tournament happened, we resolved the invasion of earth and Shao Kahn is dead. That was the plot of the game and it was resolved.. there was simply an extra scene to set up the events for the next game (which obviously is going to cover the events of MK4 and onwards). Resolving this was DLC would be nonsensical, why waste such a huge storyline?
