Microsoft has finally announced the release date for Killer Instinct Season 3 on the Xbox One and Windows 10 PC, and it’s March 29, 2016. The software giant also revealed that four playable characters will be available at launch.
Those four characters are of course Rash from Battletoads
, nunchuck-wielding Kim Wu, the Arbiter from the Halo
series, and Tusk the barbarian. Four additional characters will join the roster as the season progresses, bringing the total to eight fighters for the new Season.
Both Kim Wu and Tusk are returning Killer Instinct
characters, while Rash and Arbiter are guest characters and, as such, aren’t part of the game’s lore.
Everything you already own through Killer Instinct Season 1 and 2
will carry over into Season 3, along with all Achievements.
Xbox 360 fightsticks will work with Season 3 at launch, with Xbox One fightstick support expected in a future Windows 10 update.
As previously reported, the Xbox One-exclusive fighting game can be played across Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs using Xbox Live, meaning console and PC gamers can play against each other.
