Mortal Kombat 1 Order of Darkness Skins: What Are They and How to Get Them

A new collection of Order of Darkness skins are available in Mortal Kombat 1.

The Order of Darkness is a reference to Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, when Shinnok created a team of evildoers. In the recent timeline from Mortal Kombat 1, the Order of Darkness was assembled by Shang Tsung in an attempt to conquer the multiverse and destroy the Forces of Light. The new Order of Darkness includes the evil variations of Jax Briggs, Sonya Blade, Takeda Takashi, Cassie Cage, Kung Jin, Jacqui Briggs, and more.

The Order of Darkness skins are available for fighters who appeared in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. This includes Ashrah, Nitara, Reiko, and Quan Chi.

How to Get the Order of Darkness Skins in Mortal Kombat 1

For the past few months, players have been asking how to unlock some of the Order of Darkness skins, which seemed unavailable to acquire and equip.

This time around, Ashrah’s Order of Darkness skin has become available to unlock. A new titan battle with Ashrah is live in-game and you can unlock the Order of Darkness skin for her by playing through it. Other players have secured the skin by reaching Warrior rank.

Other Order of Darkness skins can be purchased in the Premium Store, which has rotating skins available for purchase. Some have also been given out at random from a Shrine. Unfortunately a lot of prizes from the Shrine are underwhelming so it may take a while to get anything of value like an Order of Darkness skin. One Order of Darkness skin was a reward in Invasions.

Unfortunately, developers haven’t made it very straightforward when it comes to figuring out when each Order of Darkness skin is available and how to acquire them. The rewards for each mode are also not officially listed either.

How Much Are Skins in Mortal Kombat 1?

The microtransactions in Mortal Kombat 1 are a big source of frustrating for the fighting game community. Recently, Mortal Kombat players yelled at developers for a Li Mei skin that cost $10 (or 1,000 Dragon Kyrstals). It was $30 to also get Sub-Zero and Scorpio’s skin from that skin line.

Right now, skins in Mortal Kombat 1 are not sold in bundles like in 11. This means that players have to purchase all the skins separately, which adds up. Others are frustrated that no skins are offered in the DLC.
