Mortal Kombat 1 - Ermac

Mortal Kombat 1 Debuts Ermac DLC Gameplay

Ermac has joined the Mortal Kombat 1 fight!

Ermac is Legion… by that, I mean he is a manifestation of souls bound together by Quan Chi’s dark magic intended to function as a hive mind.

In terms of lore, the spell bringing Ermac to life is 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, and becoming little more than a shadow puppet.

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.

Ermac’s devastating moveset leverages the many souls that make up his being in order to teleport, levitate and utilize a legion of souls to grab, lift and slam opponents to the ground.

The trailer also shows off a healthy amount of  a new DLC Kameo Fighter Mavado.

Ermac will join the growing main roster on April 16 as an exclusive for Kombat Pack owners, followed by becoming standalone DLC on April 23.
