Killer Instinct is headed to Steam later this year

Killer Instinct has been available on PC through the Windows Store since early 2016, but the game is set to spread its wings even further later this year by launching on Steam. There's no exact date or release window available just yet concerning the launch behind Valve's digital doors, but it's a welcome move nearly four years after the game initially launched on Xbox One (via Polygon).

Just ahead of the Steam news, Killer Instinct also took the wraps off of the latest fighter coming to its roster. Called Eagle, the new fighter's signature attacks involve his bow and a limited number of arrows. He also happens to be the brother of Killer Instinct's other Native American character, Thunder.

Eagle is set to hit Killer Instinct on June 27. You can get a better look at the fighter and a bit of his back story in the trailer below.
