Killer Instinct is an incredibly popular fighting game and the complete edition is part of Xbox Game Pass. While everything is fine on console, many users can't access the game through Xbox Game Pass for PC. Luckily, the team is aware of the problem and issued a statement on Twitter.

The team said the following on the website. The quote has been edited for clarity.

We're working to understand the issues with Killer Instinct on Xbox Game Pass for PC... We know that there are no workarounds at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience, and will follow up with more details. In the meantime, remember Killer Instinct works with Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One.

Since Xbox Game Pass for PC is still in beta, issues like these are to be expected. However, it's still shocking that a game doesn't work

If you want your Killer Instinct fix and can't wait until the problem is resolved on PC, then you can always play it on Xbox One. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate gives you access to Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass for PC, and Xbox Live Gold for $15 a month. The savings make it worth it in my opinion.
