Killer Instinct to Feature a Free Character Rotation

By on August 27, 2013 at 1:24 pm


In a recent interview with Eurogamer, Killer Instinct’s Ken Lobb sat down and discussed their plans for the upcoming title, including the multiple bundles that will be available at launch and how they will handle future content releases. While much of this information has been talked about in the past at one point or another, Lobb did drop a tidbit about the free version that should interest those who aren’t looking to buy the full game outright.

Much like League of Legends, which features a new assortment of free characters to play with every week, Double Helix Games and Microsoft are looking into replacing Killer Instinct’s initial free character (Jago) with another a little ways down the line. This will allow players who have stuck with the game’s free demo or made minimal purchases to try out a new character every few months or so.

Whether this fits into their tentative plans to provide players a way to try characters before purchasing is as of yet unknown, but this is definitely a step in the right direction.
