While not shown during the Microsoft Gamescom 2014 media briefing, Iron Galaxy has some news regarding the next season of Killer Instinct. Season 2 will officially kick off on October 15, with two new fighters and a handful of interface changes.

The next season of KI will begin with TJ Combo, who was revealed at E3, and Maya, who was first revealed during a panel at this year's Evo. Six new fighters will also be included, with one coming out each month, at $4.99 a piece.

Killer Instinct: Season 2 will also come bundled in two varieties. The Combo Breaker Pack will include the fighters for a flat $19.99, while the Ultra Edition will include extra costumes and the long-rumored Killer Instinct 2 Classic for $39.99. Those looking to get an early start with TJ Combo can also invest in the Killer Instinct: Combo Breaker Pack, the retail compilation featuring all of the Season 1 combatants.
