Killer Instinct reboot is free-to-play, only one character is free

Killer Instinct is getting a reboot on Xbox One, courtesy of Double Helix Games . Good news: itís free-to-play. Potential bad news: you have to pay for every character, except Jago.

Destructoid confirmed in this Killer Instinct preview, that while the fighter is free to all, you have to pay individually for new and returning characters. Thatís a payment per character, but the specific cost has not been confirmed, so donít start worrying just yet, as they could be dirt cheap.

Characters have two life bars just like in the original games, and big combos and Combo-Breakers are back. The gameís out at the Xbox One launch.

cool feature with Kinect 2.0.. should be cool for other games too..

Kinect will benefit Killer Instinct tournament play on Xbox One
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-07-17-kinect-will-benefit-killer-instinct-tournament-play-on-xbox-one

"At the Evo 2013 fighting game tournament in Las Vegas, Microsoft Studios creative director Adam Isgreen (via IGN) said Xbox One, which must be connected to Kinect to work, will smooth out the process of setting up tournaments both online and offline.

Killer Instinct will use Kinect to automatically detect who's playing and load their settings - even during a match, Isgreen explained.

"We want to have features to set up tournaments with your friends," he said.

"Say there are eight of you and you just start sitting down. I know a lot of people are like, ah, the Kinect camera in the room, I'm scared! But the coolness of being able to sit down, the controller pairs itself to you when you pick it up. It knows your buttons. It knows how you like to play. It knows what characters you want to play.

"You can just say Start, and go. It knows who you are in the tournament bracket, so it will just automatically do the matches correctly."

He added: "If you have a character you love, it might primary select that character already. Your buttons are already configured based on you picking up that controller. It knows it's you, so it can do the leaderboards correctly. All that's possible on Xbox One - mid-fight, too.

"So, here, you play, you give me your controller, it reconfigures it to me.
The new and improved Kinect is more accurate than the version for Xbox 360, and it can recognise players and automatically load their profiles.

Isgreen said Kinect will directly benefit fighting game enthusiasts, who enjoy hosting tournaments, often without access to an internet connection.

"There are a lot of neat features we can start to do that you can't do right now," Isgreen said. "We can't do that without having those kind of things built into the box. That's one of the reasons we've kept them in. There is a lot of really cool stuff coming for it. Those are the kind of features we want to uphold for tournaments, online or offline. It's going to be a big push for us."

Microsoft has partnered with Twitch for game streaming on Xbox One, and Isgreen hinted that this, in combination with the ability to swap quickly between apps while playing games, will be incorporated into Killer Instinct."
