E3 2014: Killer Instinct Season 2 Begins This Fall With TJ Combo

Microsoft has released a new trailer for the upcoming season of Killer Instinct.

During its pre-E3 show, Microsoft revealed some of the first details on Killer Instinct Season 2, including a release window and one of its new characters.

A teaser trailer (above) showed off one of the upcoming season's new characters, TJ Combo, in action. He'll be the first character released as part of Season 2 when it launches sometime this fall. Other characters and features that will be added to the game weren't confirmed, although Cinder, a character from the original Killer Instinct, was teased as another possible addition.

Killer Instinct developer Double Helix was acquired by Amazon earlier this year, casting doubt on continued support for the Xbox One fighter. Microsoft claimed the game would not be affected and said that the franchise, which it owns, would continue on.

Killer Instinct was released for the Xbox One last November, earning a 7.0 in GameSpot's review. Since then, new characters and a story mode have been released for the game as Season 1 wrapped up.

'F2P' is the bane of video gaming.  Now its seeped into fighting games.  So sad.  I remember when you got to play all the characters after you bought the game....

why cant we just have the whole game at once? episodic content is all fine and good for games like the walking dead and a wolf among us but a fighting game?
