Mortal Kombat 11 skins will cost $6,440 if you buy every single one
Plan on smashing buttons until your fingers bleed if you want all of the available skins in Mortal Kombat 11 without paying real money.
Mortal Kombat 11 hit consoles and PC this week, and there are plenty of different skins you can use to change the looks of your favorite fighter.
However, it will cost you plenty if you want to acquire every skin available in the game: there are 23 characters presently, and each offer 60 different skins.
Over on reddit, user AccomplishedPoet8 crunched some numbers, and according to the math, it will cost you $6,440 in real-money to buy every skin currently available (thanks, PlayStation LifeStyle).
Four of the skins can be unlocked by playing through the character tutorials, story and basic towers. That leaves 56 skins to unlock. Skins are unlocked just by playing the game, or they can be purchased using in-game currency called Time Krystals.
Time Krystals can also be earned through gameplay, but amass slowly. If you are the impatient sort, or just really want a particular skin, you can purchase 500 Time Krystals through the in-game store for $5 which is what each skin runs on average.
But, you still may not get the skin you want as they appear on a rotational basis. Every six to eight hours a new set of five skins will become available on the store. Once they leave the store, well, prepare yourself for a grindfest.
As AccomplishedPoet8 notes, the math doesn’t take into account fatalities, brutalities, gear or single use consumables due to the drop rate being unknown. It also doesn’t take into account DLC character skins.
He goes on to say he earned 760 Time Krystals after playing the game four hours. If he wanted to unlock every game skin through gameplay alone, it would take 3,390 hours of playtime and cost 644,000 Time Krystals.
In comparison, throwing $40 at the Mortal Kombat X in-game store would net you DLC characters, skins, brutalities, and the easy fatalities pack.
Mortal Kombat 11 is available for PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One. If you’re just getting started, here’s a list of every finishing move and all fatality inputs.
