Mortal Kombat 1 is planned to have a thrilling DLC pack, and it will include tons of new characters. Here is what we know about the DLC for the latest Mortal Kombat game.

Mortal Kombat 1 has a brilliant starting roster where it features a plethora of fan-favorite characters. Whenever new units get added, the game begins to thrive again, with tons of players looking to battle with them.

The latest addition of new characters in Mortal Kombat 1 will happen in the form of a DLC pack. The presence of a DLC has already been confirmed by NetherRealm Studios, alongside the characters who will be featured in it.

Here is all you need to know regarding the first major DLC of Mortal Kombat 1.

Confirmed Mortal Kombat 1 DLC characters

Kombat Pack 1 was announced ahead of the game’s release and is arriving as Mortal Kombat 1 DLC in Spring 2024.

Obviously, this is a fair bit after the game’s initial release date. It was initially leaked via an Amazon listing, before being etched in stone by the devs to solidify these rumors.

Here’s a full list of the fighters coming in MK 1’s Kombat Pack 1.

Kombat Pack 1


Ermac is the famous character spawned as a result of a rumored glitch in the OG Mortal Kombat – the Error Macro bug. In keeping with the sense of humor that the various devs have shown throughout the years, Ermac was eventually turned into a full character complete with ninja garbs.

Quan Chi

The mind-bending Quan Chi has been a fan-favorite since his inclusion in Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero. An expert sorcerer, Quan-Chi has been a regular character over the years, and it’ll be no different in Mortal Kombat 1.

Takeda Takahashi

One of the newest members of the MK universe, Takeda Takahashi is the son of Kenshi, who also returns to MK1, and a student of Hanzo Hasashi AKA Scorpion.


It’s a surprising debut for The Boys franchise in Mortal Kombat considering Homelander just came to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, but this shows just how big that series has become.

Typically seen as the poster boy of America, Homelander is anything but, and as quite possibly the most powerful superhero in The Boys, the heinous “hero” would fit right into the MK universe.


Portrayed by John Cena in The Suicide Squad and the TV series adaptation, the powerful charcacter is another morally grey hero who has some evil in him. Plus, this means we technically get John Cena in Mortal Kombat. Hard to argue against that.


The long list of comic book characters doesn’t stop there, though, with the final guest fighter being Omni-Man. He has superhuman strength, is insanely fast, is pretty much impervious to pain, and will no doubt be a tough Kombatant.

As of writing, only Omni-Man, Quan Chi and Peacemaker are available for players to enjoy. While Ermac, Homelander and Takeda Takahashi are set to release somewhere around Spring and Summer of 2024.

Mortal Kombat 1 leaked DLC characters

Along with confirmed DLC characters, we know that many names are rumored too. Other headline-making appearances include Conan The Barbarian, Megan Fox, and even Travis Scott.

While the final two may seem more outlandish, we’ve seen the likes of Robocop, Terminator, and Rambo before – so Conan The Barbarian isn’t that farfetched.

In addition to this, Kombat Pack 2 is already being outed as well. So here’s a list of every leaked and rumored name for Mortal Kombat 1’s future:

  • Cassie Cage
  • Noob Saibot
  • Jade
  • Kano
  • Kung Jin
  • Cyrax
  • Kotal Kahn
  • He-Man
  • Ghostface
  • Conan The Barbarian
  • Deathstroke
  • Doomslayer
  • Harley Quinn
  • Megan Fox
  • Travis Scott

How to get Mortal Kombat 1 DLC

The main way to secure yourself the first Moral Kombat 1 DLC is to purchase either the MK1 Premium Edition or Kollector’s Edition.

They both come with “Early Access to 6 Playable Characters,” those being in Kombat Pack 1. You will also be able to buy DLC separately from your respective platforms’ store e.g. the PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store, etc, once the DLC is live.
