What is _not_ Unlocked in Mortal Kombat XL

Hey all,

I might be buying the Xbox One version of Mortal Kombat XL , and I'm curious what skins and content are not unlocked/available by default?

I'd be buying the digital version from the Microsoft Store, not a physical retail copy, if that makes a difference.

Thanks.

Character-wise, I'd imagine Shinnok is still locked until you complete the story mode. As far as skins go, I'm unsure.
 
@John Grizzly That's a good question about Shinnok. For skins, I've read the Revenant ones are still locked, though of course I'm not certain.

If anyone knows, I'd love to know. If I do buy the game, I'll let everyone know!

TYM's #1 L taker.
There's a couple skins locked behind some accomplishments. You can find a list of what those are anywhere. But I think the skins are limited to Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Kitana, Mileena, Johnny Cage, Sonya and probably Jax.

Sub-Zero too (basically all the revenant skins, the JC Hotshot one and some more). IIRC Sub-Zero was by beating the test your might tower.

Yeah, I recall that as well for Sub-Zero's. For Hotshot Johnny, Revenent's Liu Kang, Kung Lao, and Kitana, I recall they were unlocked via online modes. I'm assuming that hasn't changed, and no Xbox LIVE Gold, no skins?

Cool, thanks. I remember going by that list back in 2015 when the game launched (I own the PC version). I assume through patching and such over time, nothing has changed (that we know of)?
 
The game went on sale for $8.99, so I picked it up.

In terms of what is unlocked by default, not a lot. Just the DLC skin packs, as well as the mobile skins. That's a shame, as I'd assume that, like Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition before it, all the skins would be unlocked by default.

I do believe Shinnok was unlocked though without needing to play through Story Mode.
