“Killer Instinct” developer Iron Galaxy has released the PC version of the game for Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) Windows 10 just as the firm promised in June last year .
The developer released the fighting game along with the third season of the Xbox One title. The two versions of the game feature similar fighting combos and the characters are also similar. Even the new entries are similar such as Arbiter from Halo. Additionally, Microsoft recently made it possible for gamers to crossmatch between PC and the Xbox One. However, the PC version can look even better if PC owners max out the settings of their gaming rigs. The game can even play on 4K if players have displays that can match 4K graphics cards.
“Killer Instinct” is freely available for download and features in-game purchases where players can unlock Season 3 characters by paying $5 each. There is also a bundle offer where gamers can unlock eight characters in Season three for $20. Iron Galaxy also revealed a Supreme Edition where players can pay $60 to unlock all the characters, perks, sets and costumes that the title offers.
Gamers on Xbox One will also gain access to “Killer Instinct Classic” as well as its sequel. The title will be exclusively available through Windows Store, and it will not be supported by earlier versions of Windows. The game will also not be available on other PC stores such as Steam. Microsoft recently announced that Xbox One exclusive titles will also be available for PC gamers as part of the company’s attempt towards unifying the Windows 10 and Xbox One platforms.
“Killer Instinct” is the first multiplayer cross platform game to appear on Windows Store and Microsoft is expected to do the same with more titles released in the future. Some of the other highly anticipated titles from the company include Quantum Break, which will be launched in the coming week for both Windows 10 and Xbox One. Those who preorder the Xbox version will also be given a free copy of the PC version.
