Ultimate finishers are coming to Killer Instinct for free on Valentine's Day

Killer Instinct is about to get a little more brutal with the arrival of Ultimates, finishing moves meant to cap a match with a bang. In fact, the first Ultimates will arrive for at least some characters on none other than February 14. That's quite the Valentine's Day present, if I do say so myself.

Ultimates were a part of the original Killer Instinct and have been a highly requested feature from those who play the game's current iteration. Thankfully, you won't have to pay for these moves, as they'll be released in completely free packs for all players on the Store.

So what characters are getting Ultimates? The Killer Instinct team says 15 characters are currently planned to receive Ultimates, and that doesn't include Shadow Jago, who already has one. These won't be released all at once, however, and the first pack will only bring Ultimates to Jago, Maya, Thunder, TJ Combo, and Tusk. For a small preview of what's coming, you can check out a preview of Thunder's Ultimate in the video above.
