Start with one character. Pay for the rest.

Microsoft and Double Helix’s upcoming Killer Instinct reboot for Xbox One won’t be a full-fledged retail release.

Killer Instinct is a free-to-play, day-one digital-only launch title on Xbox One, IGN has confirmed. The game features one character—Jago— with the rest of the cast—like Saberwulf, Glacius, and other unannounced fighters—being paid add-ons.

Xbox One is out this November. Catch yesterday’s Killer Instinct trailer here.

    So this is basically a demo version.

    • DrForbidden

      If it only has one character, it doesn’t even deserve to be called a demo, to be honest…

  • Aiddon

    well, the stupid keeps piling up

  • Raoni Marques

    And the bs starts early. Just because I was really interested in the game…

  • Elvick

    Not only is it not even a Rare developed game (although that could be a positive, who knows at this point, they aren’t allowed to spread their wings), it’s a F2P game…

    Yay… showing the faith in the IP, eh MS?

    They totally just carted this IP out to pretend to appeal to hardcore fans of Rare’s glory days.

    It’d be funny, if it were so sad.

      Might as well be Street Fighter The Movie: The Game.

  • Chris Cruz
