Killer Instinct is free-to-play
When Killer Instinct hits Xbox One, it will be free-to-play.
IGN reported the story after checking it out at a Microsoft press event last night. The only free character for the digital download will be Jago, with the rest costing various amounts that will be announced later.
The gameplay remains the same as the original game, with fighters having two life bars and health and time carrying on without rounds breaking the fighting up. It also still hinges on huge combos and “C-C-C-Combo Breaker!”
For players that only want a few characters, this may not be bad. However, players that want the full experience may have to put down quite a bit to get everything.
