NEWS: Killer Instinct bizarrely free to play on Xbox One


Killer Instinct, the game that arcade fanboys (and fangirls) have been clamoring for, is coming to the Xbox One as a “Free to Play”. Of course, there’s a catch: the only unlocked player will be Jago (or, as everyone else knows him, Jago The Super Mediocre).

The rest of the characters can be purchased for $4.99 each as DLC…or you can buy their “not really a season pass” Combo Breaker pass for $19.99, which will feature the six main “starter” characters, as well as two more later down the line. And diehard fans can get the Ultra Edition, consisting of the entire game, a slew of DLC and the original Killer Instinct as well. No word on the price point for Ultra, but smart money’s on the $60-70 window.

So it begs the question: why not just put a $20 price tag on it from the get-go?
