Konquest ModeEdit

"Game changing decisions with story progressive-style stance achieving makes for a fun and gorey MK experience". The protagonists will be common Outworlders, caught in the War for Edenia and soon, other conflicts as well. They seem to be polar opposites as Ren Tsung is a more of cynical enforcer than the merciful, yet headstrong Shin Tsung. They traverse through the realms to stabilize due to voices in their heads revealing their heritages and duties. Weakening possible threats and forces various enemies to submit by killing their leaders, but believing they're doing it for the greater good.
