Killer Instinct Season 2 Out Tomorrow, Launch Trailer ReleasedStart breaking more combos tomorrow
Earlier today, Microsoft and Iron Galaxy Studios finally revealed the official launch trailer from their upcoming second season of Killer Instinct. The action-packed trailer is conveniently embedded above for you all to check out.
In addition the above gameplay video, Microsoft also provided us with more details below on what we can expect from this season of Killer Instinct.
Eight New Characters – Both Original and Returning: Longtime fans of the franchise will be happy to see that TJ Combo and Maya are joined by the cybernetic dinosaur Riptor and the blazing human effigy Cinder as playable characters this season. Along with the returning classics, all-new characters are coming to Killer Instinct: Season 2, including an ancient Babylonian sorcerer, an avenging ghost, a battle-hardened war golem, and more.
Sleek New Interface: Ultratech’s influence this season extends even to the interface, making navigating and interacting with the game more intuitive. Faster character access, better stat tracking, and a new experience system makes the entire experience of Killer Instinct even better.
New Moves and Rebalance: The entire Season 1 cast has been rebalanced forSeason 2, adding new techniques and abilities to their already formidable arsenals of moves. With the arrival of an entirely new set of combatants to go against, these new toys will certainly come in handy.
Enhanced Combo System: The new “aerial recapture” option gives select characters the ability to catch an opponent in the air and slam them back to the ground to continue their combo. Juggling air attacks has been increased, but the addition of Air Breakers and Air Counter-Breakers mean that there’s always two-way interaction in a combo for both players.
New Progression System: The ranking and leveling system for Season 2 now allows the fiercest fighters to earn costumes, accessories and other badges of honor faster than before. Now, all individual characters will have levels in addition to the overall player level. Every mode you play contributes to both character and player level, and “Fight Challenges” help players rack up experience points (XP) every time they complete a rank.
Killer Instinct Season 2 will include both TJ Combo and Maya at launch along with 6 other fighters over the next several months. Fans can purchase each character individually for $4.99 or all 8 as part of a season pass for $19.99.
Killer Instinct Season 2 launches exclusively on the Xbox One tomorrow. Are any of you planning on jumping back into the game? Please feel free to let me know in the comments section below.
