Prepare for a Faction War in Mortal Kombat X

MK X factions (1)

I’m fairly confident that Mortal Kombat X is going to be a solid single-player game, even if you do plan to Forever Alone it. But the real strength in this title is going to lie in the eSports and tournament scenes. And Mortal Kombat X may have a feature that merges the single and multiplayer sides of the game, in the form of factions. So you wanna join a club in Mortal Kombat X? Then GET OVER HERE!

Update: Faction Wars is confirmed! Here’s a brand new trailer detailing how it works:

Over on Reddit, squadcarxmar posted the following photos. Take them with a pinch of salt, but it all sounds quite legit. Dubbed Faction War, the new online mode will see players join one of five different sides that all have a link to the history of Mortal Kombat. The five factions are:

  • Lin Kuei – Team Sub-Zero
  • White Lotus – Liu Kang, Raiden and related to the order of light
  • Special Forces – Jax, Sonya and other operatives
  • Black Dragon – Kano and those who oppose the Special Forces
  • Brotherhood of Shadow – Led by Quan Chi

The mode also describes itself as being an interconnected link between online and offline, with the results of your victories and losses in Faction War having an impact on other factions within the meta-game. “Whether you play against the AI full-time or fight against real-life opponents offline, your results affect your associated Faction on a weekly basis, where the victors spoils include badges and other rewards”, the leak reads.

It’s just another way for Mortal Kombat fans who just like single-player to be indirectly involved with the community. In other words, it’s a team effort without the pressure and anxiety of needing to play online.

Clubs are pretty much a big staple of online gaming these days. It’s something that you see a ton of in racing games, with the idea rarely implemented outside of that genre in other games. But a dedicated club system for a fighting game, that doesn’t require online play in order to make an impact? Sign me up.

  1. Looks like DRM to me. Does anyone have have an opinion regarding DRM?

          Fixed it like less than a second after posting it. But that’s the name of the game.

          I see Hammersteyn spelling and grammar has all but disappeared this week! All I see in comments is his comment, followed, usually by you, with a whole bunch of *fixes.

    Team Edward FTW, This seems very interesting. I’ll just play AI anyways. Getting real sick and tired of disconnects and lag. I get Destiny to work but then GTA gives issues. Makes me really excited for Evolve.

      I was saying earlier to my wife just how nice it has been playing the original Xbox. Put disc in, disc boots up, I play. There is NONE of that:

      “Please wait while we check for updates”
      “Update in progress…1kb of 3.2mGB”

      It makes one realise just how backwards gaming actually has gone.
