Mortal Kombat 11 is finally upon us, and a lot of people are wondering how long is the story mode in MK11. If you want to gain access to a certain character, you’ll need to play through story mode, so knowing how long the Mortal Kombat 11 story mode is could be beneficial. We’ll also go through all of the story mode chapters in Mortal Kombat 11 so you know which character you play as in each story mode chapter. So read on to find out how long the MK11 story mode is and what you can expect from playing through story mode.

How Long is the MK11 Story Mode

  • About 6 Hours on Medium Difficulty

The default difficulty setting for the MK11 story mode is medium. If you’re playing on medium it should take you anywhere from four to seven hours to complete all 12 chapters. On medium difficulty you can find one 2-4 hit combo with each character and spam that repeatedly to beat almost every enemy you encounter. With this strategy it takes around five hours to complete story mode. If you’re a novice player and get stuck on a few matches, you’ll end up closer to the seven hour mark.
