Yesterday at Microsoft’s E3 Conference Killer Instinct made a surprise appearance on stage, showcasing the rebooted fighter which seemed to have pleased fans.
However it has since been revealed that Rare is not developing the game, instead those duties fall to Double Helix who developed Silent Hill: Homecoming and more recently the Battleship game.
Okay, new developers appear all the time on established franchises. However according to a report on IGN it also turns out that Killer Instinct on Xbox One will be a Free To Play title. The most ludicrous thing is that only one fighter, Jago, will be available for free. You have to pay for the others.
I understand FTP have micro transactions to support them but only one free fighter? What’s the point?
