Unlocking Every Character in Mortal Kombat 11
Out of the 37 characters that you can use in Mortal Kombat 11, only one of them is unlockable via Story Mode. The rest are pre-unlocked or part of a downloadable content pack.
That said, here are all the characters you can play as in Mortal Kombat 11.

- Sonya Blade
Story Mode Unlockable Character
The only character that’s locked by story mode progression is Frost. Here’s how to unlock her.
To unlock Frost and play as her, complete Chapter 4 while playing as Sub-Zero or Scorpion. Once you complete the chapter, Frost will then unlock as a playable character.

Mortal Kombat Aftermath Characters
A year after the base game was released, the studio behind the game released the Aftermath expansion. This expands the story mode, has new stages, brings back stage fatalities and friendship moves, and of course, new characters.
- Shao Kahn – Shao Kahn initially came as a bonus character for those who pre-ordered the game. He then became available as a character you can purchase later on.
Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate Edition Characters
If you haven’t purchased the game yet and want to get everything it has to offer, it’s highly suggested that you purchase the Ultimate Edition instead. This version comes with all the characters listed above, including Shao Kahn.
In this edition, you’ll still need to complete chapter 4 from the Story Mode as Scorpion or Sub-Zero to unlock Frost.
