Microsoft Studios and Iron Galaxy today announced that eight new fighters are joining the arena in Killer Instinct: Season 3, available March 29 on both Xbox One and Windows 10. Another exciting thing about this game is that it supports cross-play functionality between both platforms.
It became clear that anything goes in Killer Instinct’s unhinged universe when Rash from Battletoads was announced to join the roster with Season 3, and then, Halo’s Arbiter was announced. Developer Iron Galaxy is definitely doubling-down on the apparent mandate to go nuts, getting clever with an approach to the iconic Halo Elite’s design that incorporates his native mechanics in thrilling ways.
We got to put Arbiter through his paces at the Xbox Spring Showcase, along with the other fighters debuting in Season 3 – notably Tusk, the long-awaited fan favorite. Adam “Keits” Heart, Lead Combat Designer at Iron Galaxy Studio, was on-hand to showcase what these new fighters can do.
The team provided hands-on with the first four characters available on launch day – Kim Wu, Tusk, The Arbiter from the Halo franchise, and Rash from Battletoads – on Xbox One at the recently held Xbox press event. Read more about this upcoming game from the link below.
