Earlier this month, we reported the possibility of a new Killer Instinct character by the name of Kilgore. Bearing a striking resemblance to the classic character Fulgore, Kilgore was spotted on the Xbox One dashboard.
However, it has now been confirmed that many new characters will be added to Killer Instinct in a season 3 update. As opposed to our previous speculations of Kilgore being Fulgore’s skin, it is indeed a brand new character which is going to be added to the game’s roster soon.
Kilgore Fires His Way into Killer Instinct
We not only have a handful of screenshots of the upcoming fighter, but also a couple of gameplay videos to give you an idea of what to expect from him. Kilgore is basically a robotic fighter with a machine gun on each arm.
From the looks of it, the machine guns get overheated after extensive use and turn bright red. Whether this is only a visual change or has some in-game implications i.e. increased damage, explosion, etc. remains to be seen.
Another thing I felt in the gameplay video against Jago is that Kilgore feels a little immobile but makes up for it with increased damage output.

There is no concrete release date as to when Kilgore will appear in the game, but you can expect to see him sometime in January. There are no specifics, but the developers have promised to share more information in coming weeks.
Apart from this, Iron Galaxy has rolled out update 3.6 which brings a ton of new features, character balances, a few gameplay changes, and gold/platinum skins.
Killer Instinct is now available on Xbox One and Windows 10.
