With Iron Galaxy Studios working on the Killer Instinct title’s updates and expansion this time, the game that received a 74.34% approval rating from aggregate review sites Metacritic and GameRankings respectively, will soon have additional eight (8) new characters in its upcoming “Season 2”.
Earlier reports said that during a Play XBLA stream, Iron Galaxy Studios revealed its plans for Killer Instinct. Iron Galaxy already dropped the names of Cinder, T.J Combo, Riptor and Tusk while rumors said that Killer Instinct Season 2 will have Kim Wu, Maya, Eyedol, and Gargos as part of the cast.
Killer Instinct is a legendary fighting game franchise, which was first released as a free game demo with only one playable character, but has the option of additional fighters to be purchased individually. It comes with next-generation visuals, over-the-top action, a wild cast of combatants, and rocking reactive music that gamers wouldn?t want to miss.
“Choose from amongst a wild cast of combatants each with fluid animations, unique combat tactics, and flashy special attacks. Utilize an open-ended combo system to rack up huge combos as your opponent looks for openings to break you and turn the tides of battle,” Microsoft said in the official Xbox One site.
It could be remembered that just last month, Microsoft had Iron Galaxy to work on the future of Killer Instinct since the acquisition of Amazon of the original developer ? the Double Helix.
