Microsoft recently released the Definitive Edition of their hit fighter, Killer Instinct. Now gamers are able to purchase a “complete” version of the game…at least until a season 4 is announced…


The Killer Instinct: Definitive Edition includes every fighter, stage, costumes and accessories. It also features exclusive content like music, artwork and more. All for $39.99. Not bad considering the cost of the complete package before season three was released; the Ultra Edition was $59.99, though it did include the classic games and XP boosters.  Those that purchase the game will get a bonus Gold Gargos skin and a bounces soundtrack disc (if bought at retail).

Microsoft also released a free update which included the Shadow Lords campaign mode. Here gamers will try their hand at defeating Gargo using a team of fighters. They’ll be able to collect loot/items to help them in this regard.

The Killer Instinct: Definitive Edition available digitally and in retail stores. The Windows 10 version will be released later this year. Good news: if you buy the digital Xbox One version, you’ll automatically get it for Windows 10 thanks to the Play Anywhere program.
