Gargos was originally the antagonist of Killer Instinct 2 and has returned in the reboot to wreak havoc on Xbox One and Windows 10. He'll be the primary antagonist of Season 3, and will also be playable.
Iron Galaxy released Gargos to some of the most active members of the Killer Instinct community, and a few high-quality videos have emerged as a result. Check one of the videos below to see Gargos in action.
Gargos has various ranged attacks making him an advanced but formidable zoning adversary. He's also capable of shutting players down while above the ground, using air grabs and his wings for additional jumps while airborne.
Perhaps the most insane feature of Gargos is his minion gameplay. Gargos can summon two demonic minions (which curiously resemble Pain and Panic from Disney's Hercules movie...), who both have their own moves, A.I. commands, and even specials. Gargos can interact with his minions in a number of ways, using them to block projectiles and continue combos. Gargos can even devour his minions to gain Instinct meter.
While Gargos has a ton of capabilities, mastering them proficiently will require patience and investment. Iron Galaxy noted in the stream that the minions might seem powerful, but in reality, they'll die very quickly if summoned at the wrong time.
Gargos will also be available with a retro skin to mimic his Killer Instinct 2 appearance, and carries some incredible looking accessories and colors — including a frankly horrifying nightmare clown costume.
If you'd like to find out what Gargos is capable of in more detail, Killer Instinct developers Iron Galaxy hosted a full reveal stream you can check out over here.
Killer Instinct is available now for free on Xbox One and the Windows 10 Store, and your purchases and progress roam between devices via your Microsoft Account.
