GC2014: Killer Instinct Season 2 Launching In October, Killer Instinct 2 Classic Confirmed

While it didn’t receive any time during Microsoft’s press briefing, Iron Galaxy Studios and Microsoft Studios have joined together to announce release dates and packages for Killer Instinct: Season 2.

The “Ultra Edition” of the game will release for $39.99US, and will include access to eight characters, a selection of costumes and a high definition update of the original Killer Instinct 2 arcade game, titled Killer Instinct Classic.

The “Combo Breaker” pack will launch for $19.99US, and will include just the eight fighters. Players who choose to buy neither package will be able to just pick up individual fighter characters each month for $4.99US each.

Season 2 of Killer Instinct will begin on October 15th, and at launch will feature both T.J. Combo and Maya as playable characters. The update will also bring enhanced game modes, a completely revamped interface and six more characters with one new one being released each month. Players who purchase the Ultra Edition of Killer Instinct: Season 2 will be able to access T.J. Combo early, but the purchase must be made between September 23rd and October 14th.

We don’t have finalised Australian pricing just yet, but if the past is anything to go by, Australian players could probably be expected to shell out roughly $52.45 for the Ultra Edition, and $26.45 for the Combo Breaker pack. Once we receive finalised pricing we’ll be sure to keep you updated.

While no footage exists of Maya just yet, have a peek at the T.J. Combo trailer, released at E3 earlier in the year.
