Killer Instinct Will be a Free-To-Play Game for the Xbox One
When Xbox One was showing its game lineup, many didn’t expect them to pull out a heavy hand and unload Killer Instinct onto us. Not only did they announce the long awaited return of Killer Instinct, but it will also be a digital only game available on day one of Xbox One. Not only that, but it will be free to Xbox Live Gold Members with fighter Jango. Additional characters will need to be purchased.
“Fighting games are big and expensive and they can be complicated. It’s very hard to get good at a number of characters,” the producer said. “You generally gravitate towards one or two or three or four at the most. We want players to be able to experience the game that way. Just buy the characters you want or buy them all and we’ll give you a discount on that.”
Pricing was not revealed but the Xbox One and Killer Instinct are expected to be released this November.
