Shao Kahn is one of the characters in Mortal Kombat 11. The arch-villain from the old times is only available to those who’ve preordered MK11, so if you haven’t done that, you’ll have to hope he’s added as a DLC character later on. This guide will show you how to unlock Shao Kahn in Mortal Kombat 11.
How to unlock Shao Kahn in MK11?
First of all, make sure you’ve preordered the game – Shao Kahn is only available to people who get MK11 before launch. If you’re playing on PC, Steam will automatically download all the DLC you own – which includes the preorder bonus character.
If you’re on console, the method of activation depends on how you bought the game. If you have the physical (boxed) edition, you should look for a code printed out on a piece of paper that’s included in the box. You can’t redeem it in the game – instead, you’ll have to go to the console’s dashboard or store, and look for the option to redeem it there. Once you’ve done that, you’ll need to make sure it’s downloaded.
If you’ve bought the digital version, you just need to double check if the console downloaded it along with the game itself. Look for it either in the store or your library, and if it’s marked as installed, you’re good to go. Shao Kahn will be available in the roster.
And that’s pretty much it. If you’ve missed the chance to preorder the game, you’ll have to buy the character separately once it becomes available. There’s no telling how much it could cost, but we’re pretty certain it won’t be less than $5. The developers might allow you to buy it using Koins, or unlock it by performing a certain task in the game, but that’s just wishful thinking.
