Killer Instinct Season 3… What to Expect

 

Killer Instinkiller-instinct-wallpaper-3ct Season 3 will release on March 29th, 2016.  This 3rd major add on to the base game will provide you with 4 new characters at launch, and at least 4 more throughout the life of this expansion.  KI season 3 will also include new costumes, accessories, levels, and a revamped story mode to battle through.  The biggest news associated with the new season so far, though, is that Killer Instinct is getting a Windows PC release!  Who am I kidding? The biggest news so far is the inclusion of the Arbiter from Halo!!

THE Arbiter will be available at launch along side newcomer Rash, of Battletoads fame.  Killer Instinct 2 (1996) is also offering up a couple of alumni on the first day as well in Kim Wu and Tusk.  Gargos from KI2 has also shown up recently, and is deemed a lock to appear in season 3.  There are some very juicy rumors surrounding the remaining unnanounced roster spots, including an Eyedol return, a new character named Mira (who’s made appearances in previous season’s story mode), and a Gears of War cameo from General Raam.  If Iron Galaxy continues the quality from the previous seasons, the new additions to the roster should end up varied in style, balanced, and extremely fun to learn and master.

The most important announcement for Killer Instinct Season 3 is the reveal of a PC version compatible with Windows 10.  Available the same day as the Xbox One game!  The best news of all is that any KI content you’ve already purchased on your Xbox One console, will be immediately available on your Windows 10 PC!  All you have to do is download the season 3 update on your console,  restart and login, and you should be able to log into Windows 10 and access all your content on your computer.  The PC and Xbox One versions will also be crossplay compatible opening up even more options for you and your friends to ultra-combo each other into oblivion!
