Killer Instinct will be Free-To-Play and available on launch day
Killer Instinct will look very different from what fans remember when it’s released for the Xbox One later this year.
The fighter isn’t being developed at Rare. Instead, the game’s next-generation debut will be handled by Double Helix Games (probably best known for Silent Hill Homecoming). It will also be… brace yourself… free-to-play.
The “base game” will consist of a single character, Jago, and all other characters (including Sabrewulf and Glacius, along with other returning and new characters) will be available to download for a to-be-determined charge. It’s definitely an odd offer, and it’s unknown if there will be a “full game” charge or if each character will have to purchased piecemeal.
Killer Instinct will be available to download for the Xbox One on the system’s launch date in November.
