Killer Instinct was part of this weekend’s Combo Breaker 2017 event, and Microsoft used the opportunity to announce that Eagle, Chief Thunder’s older brother, will be added to the game in June. Aside from the short teaser trailer’s promise of epic archery skills, that’s about all we know about the character.
Developer Iron Galaxy closed the book on Killer Instinct’s third season last July, but since the start of 2017, they’ve added several “remix” characters to the game including Kilgore and Shin Hisako. It’s unknown if the team considers Eagle an original character or yet another remix.
Finally, congratulations to Rob “Valoraxe” Doherty, the winner of this year’s Combo Breaker Finals.
