Includes Season 1 roster as well as one Season 2 character.
The Xbox One exclusive fighter, 'Killer Instinct' continues to be a presence in the fighting community, most notably in events like EVO. The fighting game originally debuted with the Xbox One in a slightly convoluted tiered purchase model. Now though, Microsoft has announced the 'Killer Instinct: Combo Breaker Pack,' a "special retail version of the game."
From Microsoft, "The pack comes loaded with the game all eight fighters from Season 1. That’s Jago, Sabrewulf, Glacius, Thunder, Sadira, Orchid, Spinal, and Fulgore – giving you plenty of choices for obliterating your opponents – PLUS a code for a bonus fighter from Season 2 – TJ Combo."
It's not clear whether this retail release will be a disc or simply a set of download codes, but it does seem likely that at $19.99, this version won't include all of the Ultra Edition content. For the upcoming Season 2 content, developer Iron Galaxy has taken the reigns from Double Helix, which is now owned by Amazon. As a fighter, the game has only gotten better as the character roster has increased, and that will likely continue with characters like TJ Combo due up when Season 2 debuts. Fans should expect Season 2 to begin around the release date of 'Killer Instinct: Combo Breaker Pack.'
