MKX: IGN Living Tower Preview Theories - Cyrax, Rain, Jade

IGN are getting into the spirit of speculation following a special preview of Mortal Kombat X. The Next Trailer finally offered everyone a full preview of dynamic online features coming in 2015: Faction War and Living Tower sparking a firestorm of character spotting and fan curiosity! With hands-on experience, IGN report chances for two more fan-favourite characters: Cyrax & Rain:

In the newly announced Living Towers mode, which adds unique gameplay modifiers to standard matches, both Cyrax and Rain had mods named after them. More significantly, these mods involved fully modeled graphical assets related to each of them: Cyrax's trademark bombs, and Rain's water-bubble attack.

Alas; things aren't nearly so positive for Jade. The green clad Edenian assassin is represented by Kitana in a Variation style called Mournful. IGN note, "it specifically mentions that in this style, Kitana uses both the staff and glaive belonging to Jade, a fellow former assassin, and long-time friend."

Do Cyrax & Rain have a shot - or is it all just part of the game? Register to share your thoughts on the Mortal Kombat X forum!

Kitana Mournful Variation (RIP Jade)

'Finally, under the description for Kitana's "Mournful" variation, it specifically mentions that in this style, Kitana uses both the staff and glaive belonging to Jade, a fellow former assassin, and long-time friend.'

Damn you! You beat me to it by just like 30 seconds. Jade will return in MKXI and Kitana won't.

You know it's funny how they call Jade her long time friend when in this time line, she came off less as a friend and someone Kitana interacted with as an equal and more like a mother figure and bodyguard.

Their relationship seemed more professional than personal and intimate.

Eh whatever. See you in the next game Jade.
Or as DLC, because hey look how many characters appeared in Injustice that should have played similar but ended up being very different from the other person who used a Batarang.

So will this variation change up her normals?

That's pretty drastic, compared to other variations

You know what that means?

Not all of Quan Chi's revenants got brought back to life.

Maybe Raiden bargained with the Elder Gods, but they only allowed him to resurrect a handful of fighters, so he had to make some hard choices. I'd imagine that's something Kitana might be angry about.

Fascinating...

...And that's the first bit of bad news I've heard about this game.

Not the fact that Jade is out, I love Jade but I can live with it. It's the fact that Kitana is (seemingly) using her moves. I thought we were over that NRS!

Second piece of bad news is Microtransactions confirmed.

His hard choices would no doubt conveniently leave the secondary characters like Jade and Stryker dead, while the returning ones are primarily if not strictly core characters like Kitana and Kung Lao.

See, people, these deaths weren't completely meaningless. Surely, keeping Jade, Sindel, Stryker, Kabal and Nightwolf dead is exactly the same as Jax sitting this game out.

Oh god...I think I'm going to need a minute....

First Rain, and now Jade. These were my two mains last game. Hopefully Tanya will be back to ease the sting a bit. Either way, things aren't looking good for Edenia.

Looks like I'm maining Kitana so far....

But it's handled so well this time. Before, it was just quick copy/paste job. Now, there's a touching story behind it. Also, it's totally in Kitana's character, seeing as though Jade was her best friend since childhood.

Perfectly fitting.

RE: Kitana Mournful Variation (RIP Jade)

For of one's that don't know what Microtransaction is, here is the meaning.

Microtransaction┬a(also referred to as in-app billing or in-app purchasing) is abusiness model┬awhere users can purchase┬avirtual goods┬avia┬amicropayments. Microtransactions are often used in┬afree-to-play┬agames to provide a revenue source for the developers. While microtransactions are a staple of the┬amobile app┬amarket, they are also available on traditional computer platforms such as Valve Corporation's┬aSteam┬aplatform.

Free-to-play games that include a microtransaction model are sometimes referred to as "freemium". "Pay-to-win" is sometimes used as a derogatory term to refer to games where paying for in-game items can give the player an advantage over other players, particularly if the items cannot be obtained by free means. The objective with a free-to-play microtransaction model is to get more players into the game and provide desirable items or features that players can purchase if they are interested in them - it is hoped that in the long-term the profits from a microtransaction system will outweigh the profits from a one-time-purchase game.

Items and features available by microtransaction can range from cosmetic (such as decorative character attire) to functional (such as weapons and items). Some games allow players to acquire items that can be purchased through normal means, but some games include items that can only be obtained through microtransaction.

This actually makes Jade's death feel "real". Like...Jade REALLY died. I'm actually sad for her (and Kitana).

That's a first for an MK death.

And to be fair Jades death was one of the few in that scene that actually felt very real and carried some actual weight.

It was more than just a punch to the face. She and Jax were the ones that actually had me realise "Wait, people are being killed here?!"

But no she's not dead. She'll be back in the next game and if not then then definitely in the one after when NRS are feeling especially nostalgic again and want to bring back some of the "lesser"(grrrr) trilogy characters.

Yeah. Who would expect a secondary character to stay dead for a game or two, or more?

Well, well we got a glimpse of Kitana unmasked during the video and I have to say from a distance, she looks good.

Noooooooooooooooooo. I figured this would happen, though I thought a be female ninja would use fans, staff, and sais though. Seems like some variations might be story related after all.

RIP Jade tbh.

Actually scratch that, because she looks like Chyna... Man-girl Chyna though.
