Get the playable character and the Kameo Fighter to your personal roster.

Mortal Kombat 1 follows the promised roadmap of DLC releases and adds new personalities. Check out how you can unlock Ermac and Mavado in MK1.

How to unlock Ermac and Mavado in Mortal Kombat 1?

Arguably the simplest method to get Ermac, Mavado, and every other MK1 DLC character and Kameo is to purchase Kombat Pack.

  • MK1 Kombat Pack costs $39.99. It includes six playable characters and five Kameo FIghters.

If you purchase Mortal Kombat 1 Premium Edition for $109.99, your bonuses will include the Kombat Pack and Early Access to the DLC characters. For example, the release date for MK1 Ermac will be April 16 for you.

It is a very good idea to check sales on your gaming platform. MK1 Premium Edition costs $54.99 during PlayStation Spring Sale (till April 24, 2024), which is cheaper than the base game.

How to unlock Ermac in MK1?

If you don’t need other DLC characters, you can buy Ermac separately. It will be available for purchase after the full release on April 23.

  • Ermac in Mortal Kombat 1 costs $7.99.

How to unlock Mavado in MK1?

Mavado is a Kameo Fighter in Mortal Kombat 1. You can’t buy him separately. All DLC Kameo Fighters come with the MK1 Kombat Pack.
