Killer Instinct: Season 2 begins on October 15

Purchase characters a la carte, bundled up, or as part of the Ultra Edition that comes with Killer Instinct 2 Classic.


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.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

        Sadly, no early access for Maya. It's just Combo that comes with the disc.

      We have been waiting almost 18 years for KI, I think we can wait for a little Polish on Maya, want her to be a beast out of the box(figuratively)!
