You can check out Ermac in the game in the following character trailer:

Ermac is a collection of souls bound together by Quan Chi’s dark magic that are intended to function as a group mind. However, the spell has been undone, and, no longer Quan Chi's slave, he must find a future worth fighting for. Ermac possesses a devastating moveset, including the ability to teleport, levitate, and utilize a legion of souls to grab, lift, and slam opponents to the ground.

The trailer also provides a first look at Mavado, a new DLC Kameo Fighter also coming to Mortal Kombat 1, who can assist during matches with a range of support moves. Mavado will be available as part of the Kombat Pack and standalone purchase in May 2024.

Mortal Kombat 1 is available on Steam for $69.99. It has full controller support and is Verified on the Steam Deck according to Valve's testing. Ermac will be available to purchase separately, most likely for $7.99 on April 23rd, or can be accessed by Kombat Pack owners on April 16th at no additional cost.
