Mortal Kombat X Faction Invasion - Orderrealm (Rain)

He was sired from the loins of gods, but his desires for mortal power overwhelm his noble heritage! The next Invasion Boss has launched full scale war against online players in Mortal Kombat X!

This time it's Rain who leaps out of story mode and into the fray in the name of Orderrealm! The Edenian demi-god represents the ultimate challenge - one you won't overcome on your own! This will be a team effort as the boss tier threat pushes you to do what damage you can, before succumbing to nigh inevitable defeat.

Players can choose to join the White Lotus Society, Lin Kuei, Special Forces, Black Dragon or Brotherhood of Shadow. Representing a clan earns points toward special unlockable items and achievements, with every action in the game contributing to your clan's total assault! Use clan recruitment posts on the forum to share valuable boss strategies to help spur your faction to victory!

Choose your destiny and fight for them - or against them! Had a change of heart? For a small points penalty, you can switch clans at any time. Rising through the ranks of each clan will offer in-game benefits! Learn more about Clans & Invasions in the Mortal Kombat X: Faction War Introduction!

EDITOR'S NOTE
Great to see another NPC following on from Sindel. It's a major step toward making Invasion Bosses the event-based attractions they should be. The only thing missing is a more disciplined use of the realms. The same fans who'll respond to battling special NPC opponents will also be frustrated by haphazard in-fiction references (eg; Seido). NetherRealm really need to figure out if they're hot or cold on their once expansive universe - preferably hot - and get back to making the most of it. Being half-in and half-out has, at times, made the reboot era unsatisfying. Tanya's naginata makes us wish for a patch that maps a Hotaru skin to an Invasion Boss assets remix.

Rain is the new Invasion Boss

Hey all,

I was surprised this news wasn't mentioned here yet. Rain is this week's invasion boss. He looks and plays just like he did in story mode. He's got the triple lightning strikes, the roundhouse kick, and water bubble. Didn't see any other moves, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have them.

I wonder if Baraka will be next week.

And again, are these invasion bosses a hint of future DLC, or an homage?

Willing to bet Baraka will be next week's invasion boss. This puts my mind at ease about Sindel.

RE: Rain is the new Invasion Boss

I don't think it's a hint towards DLC its just using assets that are already in the game.

They should have been doing it from the start tho in MK2/3 towers.

Thanks to MINION for taking my Siginity!

...and he's a fabulous troll. Loves to trap you in the bubble and just stand there, letting the timer tick away.

Clever, clever.

Actually might be a viable tactic should he ever be released. Standing reset and all.

I think it has more to do with the last patch than anything for the future. Doesn't really hint towards either type of conclusion. I still think we should get Rain as free DLC as a prelude to KP2 even if he has no variation system (yet).

If it's just them using assets then their timing is awful.

This. It's cool and all but like months too late. lol If it was that easy to import them into the game, we should've been seeing all the old MK9 characters come back just for one day as an Invasion Boss. I'm sure its not that difficult to do.

I fail to see why everyone thinks that now that Rain (and possibly Baraka next week ) are "invasion bosses" that it counts them out as future DLC, I fail to see that logic.

I still believe we'll be seeing all three as DLC some way or another.

RE: Rain is the new Invasion Boss

Reused Assets or not they're much much prettier than in MK9.

They took the time to show that when you are trapped in Rain's Bubble your character looks like they're actually struggling for air due to the bubbles around their face as opposed to just flailing around like in MK9. Most of the fireballs and water effects have work put into them so it would be a shame to see that work wasted on unplayable characters.

Personally I think they only have a handful of stuff from MK9 because that's what's going to be carried over and tweaked when they become playable in X along with new strings and special moves.

Yeah they're not MK9 assets. They're total remodels and their projectiles etc are entirely new. Sindel also has some new animations in MKX, as does Baraka (I don't remember MK9 Rain as well). That would take time to do with more characters.

I have a big feeling Rain will be the question mark character after Kombat Pack 2 is finished to finally komplete the roster with 34 kharacters.

I will rock you.

This is actually my prediction too. Baraka and Sindel in KP2 with two others from scratch, then Rain to cap off the game.

Then I would be 100% satisfied. I know some others won't be, especially those hoping for "Smoke" and "Noob" and "Cyrax" ect, but I'll be alright. I do want Li Mei, but I could deal with her exclusion.

If it all pans out like it is seeming too, this will be the first time that I could truly say that I'm OK with the MKX roster.

RE: Rain is the new Invasion Boss

Every one is sooooo sure Baraka and Sindel will make the DLC cut... Why is no one assuming Smoke will make it in as well? He was more popular than both those characters in the last game i.m.o. Not to mention had the most improvement and story development... If any revenant deserves to be included its him.

Nothing against those characters, or Rain for that matter...

I think a lot of us are in agreement there. Trilogy characters like Smoke, Noob and even Cyrax being DLC would almost be a disservice at this point. Their returns should be more celebratory than that of a DLC spot, especially given how their stories were left after MK9.

The honor right now for DLC spots should go to characters who made some sort of appearance in MKX, be it either cameo or NPC function.

If you're hoping for Smoke- hope for Smoke. No ones taking that away from you.

-Enenra was never an NPC
-No new costume, his MK9 Alternate but with yellow revenant veins
-Doesn't look like anyone in the silhouette picture
-Serves as a faction kill cameo instead

That's why

I don't think people are saying that this deconfirms them as DLC but instead simply stating that it doesn't confirm or hint toward them as suggested by the OP. The likelihood of NPCs being DLC remains the same as before.

I know your a Rain fan so best of luck anyways.

Yes well Tanya looks different than her in game model. If they are going to just repackage the NPCs as DLC they will atleast give them a visual make over or upgrade.
