Late last month Microsoft Studios had to bring in Iron Galaxy Studios as the new developer for its Xbox One brawler Killer Instinct, following Amazon’s acquisition of its original developer Double Helix Games.
Almost a month after, the new developer has revealed during a Play XBLA stream its future plans for the game’s Season Two, which according to them will be much like the first season.
Season Two will see to Killer Instinct getting eight new characters. While Iron Galaxy didn’t exactly mention the names of the new roster additions, the developer’s previous XBLA Live streams hint the likes of Cinder, T.J Combo, Riptor and Tusk. In these streams, the developers discussed plans for the mentioned characters, ‘if’ they were to be included in the game. That’s pretty much spelling out that they indeed are.
Aria, the leader of UltraTech, on the other hand is a confirmed addition, thanks to earlier reports. She will be the final boss for Season Two’s story mode and will also be playable.
Aside from character additions, Iron Galaxy is looking to add the ‘No Mercy’ and ‘Ultimates’ features from the first two titles. These are planned to be previews during E3 which begins in a couple of months.
Earlier this month, Microsoft released a 6.8 GB tile update which added the Arcade Mode, alongside the eighth and final character for the season ‘Cyborg Knight Fulgore’. The update also added online lobbies that feature eight player rooms and an option for spectating.
