To celebrate the release of Killer Instinct on Steam and the ability for cross-network play, Microsoft will be holding a two-day Killer Instinct tournament at the New York Microsoft Store on Fifth Avenue. Rather than being held over two days back-to-back, the qualifiers for the Killer Classic will take place on December 7th, with the finals being held a week after on December 14th.
The grand prize for this 32-man tournament will be an Xbox One X, with all of the action being streamed via Mixer — Microsoft’s bespoke streaming service. While Killer Instinct‘s online scene is still active, this event would be great way to show that the offline community is still up to compete. Registration can be found over on smash.gg, along with details on the rules and how to get to the Microsoft Store.
