Offscreen Footage Shows Killer Instinct’s Omen In Action

By   /   Jan 26, 2015

Some off-screen footage has appeared online showing Omen, who is a bonus character in Killer Instinct’s season 2. Omen is intimidating and from his appearance, looks like a combination of Dare Devil with bat wings.

What’s even cooler is that electricity runs through his body which he can quite possibly used to his advantage. Omen is fast, agile and has a ton of Shadow Jago like moves at his disposal. However, his Shadow Jago moveset might be scaled down to maintain balance. You can see him in action in the video above.

As I mentioned, he is a bonus character in the new season which means he is not part of the usual 8 characters you get.

In a post recently, Microsoft Studios revealed the following details regarding this character:

  • 3 shadow stocks!
  • Shadow-powered ability to cancel any action, turn into shadow, and move a short distance in any direction
  • Multi-hitting close-range kick special
  • Powerful projectile zoning with some radical projectile options
  • A special move that burns all 3 stocks!
  • Aerial movement options
  • Slide

Omen is described as of the most effective “zoning characters” in Killer Instinct, situationally of course. Check out the new video and let us know what you think of Omen, in the comments below.
