The free-to-play Xbox Play Anywhere fighting game has received its latest character: Kilgore!
Kilgore is available for $10, with half of the proceeds going towards the Killer Instinct 2017 tournament prize pools. In addition to Kilgore, Iron Galaxy also teased Ultimate finishing moves, which remains one of the game's most requested features.
Similar to Fulgore, Kilgore is an outdated Ultratech war machine returned from being decommissioned. Its actions are glitchy, and he even has the propensity to overheat, which forms part of his move set. Chaingun attacks deal explosive damage at a shorter range when Kilgore is overheating, allowing players to mix up their playstyles on the fly. The vast majority of Kilgore's abilities are similar to Fulgore's.
Iron Galaxy also posted the below video of Jago performing a Dragon Ball Z-like ender on Kilgore, confirming that Ultimate finishing moves are on the way.
Ultimate enders are a way to add some flair to your victories, similar to Ultra combos. It remains to be seen whether Ultimates will be added to all characters in a single update, or be pushed out continuously over the course of the year.
With season 3 wrapped up, the future of Killer Instinct is up in the air. Clearly, Iron Galaxy are hard at work on updates, but in an age where games are perpetually renewed with DLC, it's hard to say when (or even, if) Killer Instinct will reach end-of-life status, or perhaps even pick up a sequel.
