Killer Instinct: Free-To-Play Confusion Cleared

By   /   3 years ago

Let’s first recap to what began to be known as the worst free-to-play model ever introduced. During Microsoft’s E3 conference Killer Instinct was announced as a new fighting title. However its free-to-play business model brought about much confusion amongst the fighting circles.

According to the announcement Killer Instinct would be a “day-one digital-only release on the Xbox One” which can be downloaded for free but will only feature one playable character. The rest of the roster would come at the cost of some unspecified amount of money.

Naturally the news didn’t bode well with consumers.

Double Helix Games has now come forward to set the record straight, saying that their business model has been misunderstood. There are actually two different versions of the game. The one we heard about was the demo, which will launch alongside the full version of the game.

The demo will attempt to give players only a taste of the game by providing Jago, the only available character in the game. Players will also be able to access the other game modes, including online multiplayer. At some point if you get bored of the demo, you can always purchase either the full title or packages that come with specific characters.

As said, the demo will be free-to-play, while the full version of Killer Instinct will be available for purchase.

So there you have it. While everyone was taking time out bashing Microsoft on their ‘relentless’ ways, Killer Instinct actually came out with a decent free-to-play model.
