A post from last week
from Iron Galaxy has more on the
revealed Killer Instinct 10th Anniversary Edition
, announcing that the
base version of the fighting game is going free-to-play (thanks
). All owners are getting an update to the new version, and while a la
carte purchases of individual fighters are being retired, previous purchases
will remain in your library. Here's the plan:
First, if you already own
Premium Content (Fighters, skins, accessories, etc.) in Killer Instinct for
Xbox/PC or Steam, you will still have that content unlocked in Killer Instinct
Anniversary Edition. More information on this below under version upgrades.
Upon the release of our 10th Anniversary Update, there will be two versions of
- The Killer Instinct Base Game will be FREE TO PLAY on all platforms:
Xbox consoles (One, Series X|S), Windows PC, and Steam.
- The free KI base game will feature one free weekly rotating Fighter
and Single-Player, Local, and Ranked modes.
- The Killer Instinct Anniversary Edition ($29.99 USD) will include all 29
Fighters, and all Premium Content ever released: the VIP Double XP Booster,
holiday accessories, and more.
