Mortal Kombat 1 Ermac DLC Launches April 23, Mavado Joins Kameo Roster In May

NetherRealm Studios has announced that Ermac will launch for Mortal Kombat 1 on April 23, with Kombat Pack owners gaining access to the character on April 16.

In addition, the developer announced that Mavado will join the Kameo fighter roster in May. For now, here’s the full skinny on Ermac:

Ermac is a collection of souls bound together by Quan Chi’s dark magic that are intended to function as a group mind. But that spell is temporarily undone when Ermac is defeated by Mileena and the mind of King Jerrod, deceased ruler of Outworld and one of the souls in Ermac’s collection, takes control and rejoins the royal family, aiding Empress Mileena’s reign. Eventually, the amalgam of souls reestablishes control, and Ermac retreats to Outworld’s shadows.

No longer Quan Chi’s slave, nor bound to the royal family, he must find a future worth fighting for. In the new video, Ermac’s devastating moveset is on full display, including his ability to teleport, levitate, and utilize a legion of souls to grab, lift, and slam opponents to the ground.
