v28.1 Release Notes
To Me, My X-Men
Charles Xavier makes his presence known throughout The Battlerealm with a bold proposition: recognize Mutant autonomy and the sovereignty of their new nation Krakoa, and you will be rewarded with unimaginable medical marvels.
Unimpressed by Professor X’s message of hope and peace, Iron Man suspects something more sinister lurking below the surface of Krakoa’s tropical paradise. However, some secrets are better left buried, as Tony Stark’s investigation into the origins of Xavier’s Mutant utopia brings him face to face with a might immortal!
Can there truly be peace between Man and Mutant in The Battlerealm? Find out in The Rise of X! Looking for an extra challenge? Try the first-ever Cavalier Difficulty!
Two Champions rise to Unite Mutant-kind
Professor X believed in the peaceful coexistence of mutants and humans, but this all changed when Moira MacTaggert revealed to him the inevitable demise of mutantkind, unless Professor X could change his ways. Under the new moniker “X”, he gave up his old dreams. No more would mutants endure the afflictions and prejudice of humankind. Under the formidable rule of X, the mutant nation of Krakoa was founded. And those who defy the nation must enter the Mindscape and face Professor X in a duel of mental strength.
Thousands of years ago in ancient Aqaba, the first living being on Earth to express the mutant X-gene was born, given the name “En Sabah Nur” or “The First One”. As he traveled the Earth, En Sabah Nur deemed himself “Apocalypse” convincing ancient civilizations that he was a deity and manipulating them into fighting wars which he justified as stimulating growth, judgment, and destruction. After conquesting the Earth for many millennia Apocalypse used Celestial technology to enter a period of suspended animation for many centuries, awakening in the current age and deciding the Earth is ready for further examination.
Find out more about these two titans of Mutantdom in their Spotlights when they land next week!
