A new leak shows that new Mortal Kombat 1 Ermac Skin is confirmed, like face concealing mask.
Leak Confirms Mortal Kombat 1 Ermac Skin
Just like other Mortal Kombat games, NetherRealm Studios is expanding it’s character list with additional DLC fighters, including other character from popular media. So far, Mortal Kombat 1’s first Kombat Pack has added the sinister Omni-Man from Invincible fame and MK’s resident necromancer Quan Chi, with Homelander, Peacemaker, Ermac, and Takeda Takahashi set to join them over the coming year.
Before his upcoming addition to Mortal Kombat 1’s line up of revamped fighters from across the long running series, Ermac already had a non playable supporting role in the game’s single player story campaign. Much like the version of him from previous Mortal Kombat timelines, this new iteration of Ermac is an amalgamation of souls inside a single zombie like body, though his design has been changed for Liu Kang’s new timeline.
Ermac no longer covers up his face with a mask or bandages, leaving Mortal Kombat 1 fans divided over whether or not he looked better with his undead features concealed.
According to a pair of dataminers, these fans might have the option to give Ermac a more classic look thanks to Mortal Kombat 1’s gear system and alternate character skins. As discovered by Twitter user Interloko, Ermac’s gear piece seems to be his hood, and one of the options players can unlock is a ninja facemask more in line with Ermac’s designs from older MK games.

Twitter user SHAAR supported this finding with a full body shot of Ermac in one of his alternate color schemes, complete with the same mask. This alternate costume can also be seen in a leaked clip on Interloko’s YouTube channel, minus the mask.
Controveries between Ermac is going between fans, some likes the new look, some want the old look back. According to NetherRealm’s release schedule for Mortal Kombat 1’s Kombat Pack 1, Ermac will arrive in the spring of 2024, after DC villain Peacemaker makes his playable MK 1 debut.
When he makes his return, fans who are not happy with the current outfit can unlock new outfit colors and pieces for him, which includes classic facemask, of course if the leak is true.
Nothing is confirmed yet, so take these information with grain of salt. We will learn more information from NetherRealm Studios’ official announcements.
