    Killer Instinct to have full game purchasable in addition to free-to-play model

    Good news. So glad they are bringing this one back.
    The Killer Instinct reboot revealed at this year's E3 will feature a paid option akin to a season pass in addition to its free-to-play model, allowing players to either purchase the full character roster or shop for select fighters.
    Players seeking to get the full game immediately will now have the option to pay for a season pass-like download that would unlock all of the game's content. The free version of the downloadable fighter will feature only one character - the martial artist Jago - while the remainder of the roster will be available to download individually for a price. Microsoft has yet to confirm any prices for the full roster or the single character unlocks.
    In an interview with Polygon, Torin Rettig of Microsoft explained that "Some [fighting] games have anywhere between 30, 40, even 50 characters. And in reality, most players don't play that many characters. You just only have so much time to get good at so many characters. So we wanted to take that into consideration and release the game in a way that took that into consideration and allowed players to get in and play the game at the level that they want to play it."
    The option of paying for characters or "seasons" of them are not a new concepts to the Xbox library, with Guardians of Middle-Earth, the licensed Lord of the Rings MOBA, having a similar pay model.
    Killer Instinct will be an Xbox One exclusive due out at the system's launch in November 2013 as a downloadable title only.http://www.oxmonline.com/killer-inst...ree-play-model

    Great idea, offering a full game and a F2P game as an option. Remember, we like options!

    I'll never understand fighting fans, all the games are basically the same with different character roster..game mechanics are basically the same and they don't really have any story. Not enough substance for me.
    Trophy-licious!

    I loved killer instinct in the arcades. I ****in owned at that game. Peeps use to just walk up, put the money in, hit 2nd player button...bam..tense battle. Dispense with him...next...good times. The snes version was also good. Still have my letter from rare about the snes version...parallax scrolling and mode 7 if i remember. Hope this version has the fluidity of the arcade version.

    It would be awesome to get an arcade cab built for this alone!

    Sounds like an awesome idea. That means a much more active online community. Very smart idea actually.

    Much better than the free to play model. At least they are offering options.

    That's great that they are giving options on this game. It is kind of weird for a fighting game to have to purchase each individual character.

    PCs are very much like Air Conditioners.
    They both become utterly useless once you start to open up Windows....
