Killer Instinct Season 3 PC Confirmed For March 2016 Release, Will Be Windows 10 Exclusive

Killer Instinct Season 3 has been confirmed to release in March 2016 on PC. It will be a Windows 10 exclusive so if you are still running Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1, you will have to upgrade to Windows 10 to play the game, just like with Gears of War: Ultimate Edition.

This news was revealed in an interview of the developers in a Twitch stream. Killer Instinct Season 3 creative director Adam Isgreen confirmed the following information regarding the release of the upcoming Season. (via reddit)

  • It will release in March 2016
  • It is Windows 10 exclusive
  • An updated Dojo Tutorial
  • Tusk and Kim Wu have been confirmed to appear at launch and both will have retro costumes
  • More characters will be available at launch than there were in the launch of Season 2. The remaining few will be available in the coming months.
  • Everyone on the roster will have tweaks to help balance the game to compensate for the new features and mechanics being introduced in Season 3


He also revealed some new information that was not known before for the upcoming Season.

  • Two characters that are currently on the roster will be re-worked. That means their set ups and how they gain meter will be different. It is confirmed that these two characters are not Glacius, Aganos, or Shadow Jago.
  • Although Ultimates for every character isn’t confirmed, it is possible for all the characters to receive Ultimates due to the tech they developed when they created ARIA.
  • They will reveal more information at Pax South in San Antonio, TX sometime between January 29-31
  • There will be more community bundles in Season 3 due to the success of the Shadow Jago Fund Raiser. The purpose of the Fund Raisers will be determined by the community on what they want to see in Season 3 that didn’t make the cut by launch. So if you want to see a certain guest character, stage, mode, feature, ect. that didn’t make the cut, make yourself heard. They are actively seeking out the community’s input.

Killer Instinct is cross-buy on PC and Xbox One so if you already own it on your Xbox One, you can also play the PC version at launch.
