How to Unlock Skins in Mortal Kombat 11

Mortal Kombat 11 Kitana (1)

Character customisation is big in Mortal Kombat 11.

While you start out with limited options, new skins can be unlocked as well as gear to further customise them, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. But just how do you unlock new skins in Mortal Kombat 11?

Unlocking skins in Mortal Kombat 11 is a simple but arduous process. Every skin in the game can be unlocked by completing Towers of Time and obtaining their rewards, but the Towers change frequently. So, you’ll need to keep an eye on the Towers to obtain skins that you don’t already own.

Skins can also be obtained by opening chests in Mortal Kombat 11‘s Krypt. Chests mostly require Koins to be opened but some require other currencies such as Hearts or Soul Fragments. Generally, the higher the cost of the chest, the more chance you have of getting something valuable, like a new skin.

There’s one final way to obtain skins, too. As you play Mortal Kombat 11 you’ll acquire Time Krystals. By visiting the game’s store, you can buy a selection of skins with your Time Krystals that change on a regular basis, but they’re quite expensive. Time Krystals are available for purchase with real money, however, so if you really want a skin that’s on sale, you can always just buy it. We don’t recommend it though. Just keep playing the game and you’ll unlock everything eventually.
