Summer may rapidly be coming to a close, but the free Splatoon updates continue to roll out. Friday night will see the Wii U's ink-splattering multiplayer party game receive yet another new content update, this time adding a new game mode to the Ranked Battle playlist.
The Rainmaker mode will require teams to pick up a massive weapon of the same name. After bursting its initial shield, the object of the game becomes to carry the rainmaker to the opposing team's base. Because of its heavy weight, Super Jumping will be disabled while carrying the Rainmaker. The opposing team will have to put a stop to the Rainmaker escort before grabbing it themselves. To make the game a little more interesting, the Rainmaker will have offensive firepower of its own.
The new Rainmaker mode is set to debut tomorrow night at 7PM PT. Look for online modes to come down briefly before then. For more information, check out the Splatoon Tumblr page.
