Killer Instinct was one of Xbox One’s killer launch titles and it utilized the recent fighting game trend of paying on per character basis. It looks like that won’t change with Killer Instinct Season 2.
Killer Instinct Season 2 will kick off in a few short weeks on October 15th. Players will be able to purchase either the Killer Instinct Season 2 Combo Breaker pack for $19.99 which will feature eight (8) new fighters starting with TJ Combo and Maya then a subsequent fighter each month. The Killer Instinct Season 2 Ultra Edition bundle will be $39.99 and includes the eight (8) fighters, select player costumes and accessories as well as Killer Instinct 2 Classic. Individual fighters will be available for purchase for $4.99 each. This will be the first iteration developed by Iron Galaxy as Double Helix has gone on to work for Amazon Game Studios.
Killer Instinct Season 2 will be available on October 15th and is available early for those who pre-order the Ultra Edition between September 23rd and October 14th. A retail version of Killer Instinct on Xbox One will be available on September 23rd in North America.
