Killer Instinct season 3 has finally gotten a release date. Microsoft have announced that season 3 content will be launching on March 29th for Xbox One and Windows 10 for $19.99. Killer Instinct Season 3 content will come with a total of eight playable fighters, but only four will launch in the early part of the season which include: the Arbiter from Halo, Tusk (Killer Instinct 2), Kim Wu (Killer Instinct 2) and Rash from Rare’s iconic Battletoads series.
Microsoft is definitely taking a page from NetherRealm Studios playbook by using the power of licensing to expand not only their fighter roster but also the overall appeal of their brand. If they want to compete with the likes of Mortal Kombat then Microsoft should really consider adding additional licences for a future season of the game.
In the mean time those of you who have never purchased any of the previous seasons for Killer Instinct and want to get their hands on all of the content, gamers can pay a flat fee of of $59.99 for the Killer Instinct Complete Collection. The collection will come with all of the characters from each of the previous three seasons along with additional costumes and stages.
