Killer Instinct Season 2 Release Date and Pricing Revealed
Killer Instinct is by far Microsoft’s most solid day one release for the Xbox One. After being absent for years from the fighting game scene Double Helix created a new version of Killer Instinct that was worthy of its reputation. The reaction to its long awaited return has been extremely popular in FGC and when Microsoft announced Killer Instinct Season 2, fans of the series couldn’t have been more stoked about it. Iron Galaxy Games is taking over the development for season two and two new fighters have already been announced (TJ Combo and Maya), however no release date had been announced so far. Well the wait is over, Iron Galaxy Games and Microsoft recently announced the release date for the second season of Killer Instinct as October 15th, 2014 exclusively on the Xbox One.
The release date has been revealed, but players have also been curious about how the pricing will work for the second season. Season one had many different ways for players to purchase the game via Ultra Edition, Combo Breaker Edition, or the ability to purchase characters individually. As stated on the Killer Instinct official forums players will have various purchase options included in special discounted fighter packages.
Ultra Edition will be available for $39.99 and will include all eight new fighters starting with TJ Combo and Maya. New fighters will be added each month after release. This edition also includes all the fighters costumes and accessories just like the previous Ultra Edition. Also, players that buy this version of the game will receive early access to characters and customization items. Further details on this early access have not been released as of yet. Season one Ultra Edition also came with a free copy of the original Killer Instinct and season two is following suit by including KI 2 Classic with full multi-player support over Xbox Live. While this is hardly the reason most players will purchase Killer Instinct Season 2, it is some great bonus content to be provided for free.
If Ultra Edition is a little too much flair for you, then the Combo Breaker Edition is also available for Killer Instinct Season 2 as well. The Combo Breaker Edition is priced at $19.99 and gives you access to just the eight new fighters starting with TJ Combo and Maya, and adding a new fighter each month. Players also have the option to purchase fighters individually when they come available for $4.99 each.
If this wasn’t enough fighting goodness to make your mouth salivate already, Iron Galaxy Games is giving you a chance to get early access to TJ Combo. For those that purchase Killer Instinct Season 2 – Ultra Edition between September 23rd and October 14th you will see TJ Combo added to the Season One lineup immediately, as well as getting early access to the original Killer Instinct 2.
Being a huge fan of the series I am pretty hype about these recent announcements and can’t wait to get my hands on the second season of this amazing fighter. With new modes, characters, interface, and gameplay mechanics this new version of Killer Instinct is bound to be a great addition to the roster of new fighting games that are going to be released before Evo 2015.
