Mortal Kombat 11 Frost unlock guide

NetherRealm’s newest fighting game has a vast roster but the Mortal Kombat 11 Frost unlock is a bit more obtuse than any of the base fighters. She’s not available right from the start and players will have to figure out how to unlock Frost in MK11 in order to play as her. And in fact, there are actually two different ways to play as Frost.

These two ways to unlock Frost in Mortal Kombat 11 will realistically just be one way for most players as one costs money and the other costs time. Frost is playable once players beat chapter four in the game’s story mode. This should only take a few hours as the campaign is not incredibly lengthy and about comparable to NetherRealm’s other single-player story modes.

The other way to unlock Frost is faster but probably not desirable for most people. Players can pay an unknown price (that is probably $5.99) through their console or PC marketplace to play as Frost up front without playing the story mode. This is similar to how players could play as Brainiac in Injustice 2, although he unlocked at the end of the game rather than a few chapters in. Paying for Frost is probably there for people who either don’t want to wait or for tournaments that have systems with no saves on them.

Unlocking Frost is different from Shao Kahn as he is currently a pre-order bonus and not unlockable through the story campaign despite his cameos in it. He will be sold separately too for mostly likely $5.99 much like Goro from Mortal Kombat X (although Goro was $4.99) and Darkseid in Injustice 2. Frost is also not immediately unlocked by default for those who buy the premium versions of the game. Everyone will either have to play some story mode or pay up front. This also means she is not in the Kombat Pack.
