An interesting trip for a classic fighter.
'Killer instinct' launched with the Xbox One, but now, at the onset of season 3, the game instantly becomes one of the most high profile cross play/cross buy (Xbox One/Windows 10) games around.
If you have ever owned any part of the game on the Xbox One, you should be ready to play on Windows 10. With the support of Windows 10, a whole new player base has opened up. As announced, season 3 looks to be a season full of crossover characters from games like 'Halo 5' and 'Battletoads.' The new season also brings some visual upgrades, an all-new lighting system, and three new stages.
Microsoft has a whole myriad of purchase options for both new and returning players. Characters can be bought individually for $4.99 each, or for $19.99 for all eight season 3 characters. The 'Season 3 Ultra Edition' is $39.99 and gets not just the new characters but also all the costumes, colors, accessories, etc. And yet, the best buy is likely the 'Killer Instinct: Supreme Edition.' At $59.99 on the Xbox One and $49.99 on Windows 10, this version includes all 25 characters from all three seasons, all retro costumes, all premium accessories, a VIP Double XP booster, and 18,000 KI Gold (a limited time offer). (Note: 'Killer Instinct Classic' and 'Killer Instinct 2 Classic are only included in the 'Supreme Edition' on the Xbox One, thus the higher price.)
