We’ve known that more Killer Instinct content was coming sooner or later for quite awhile now. We were officially revealed to be receiving a Season 3 for the title during the PC Gamer Press Conference back at E3 2015, when Microsoft revealed the game to be arriving on Windows 10 in Spring of 2016.

Killer Instinct Season 3 will launch on March 29th, 2016 on both Xbox One and Windows 10.

Pricing details are coming shortly, as well as information surrounding pre-purchase options.

Eight fighters join the battle in Season 3, featuring both new, classic, and now guest characters

Season 3 will launch with 4 characters – Rash, Kim Wu, Arbiter, and Tusk with additional characters rolling out as the season progresses.


The Season 3 update will also feature enhanced visuals, the ability to play multiplayer cross platform via Xbox Live, the use of Xbox 360 fightsticks on Windows 10, and more.

The official website contains a full listing of all the new details and features coming to Season 3, as well as system requirements for those of you who may be interested in playing on Windows 10.

Since purchasing the Season 1 and Season 2 deals of Killer Instinct a few month ago, I’ve been enjoying the game immensely, despite not being quite good yet. I’ll need to put in more time. I can only hope that Season 3 helps breathe new life into the game, and that maybe, we’ll see a Season 4 down the line.
