Killer Instinct: Season 2 is slated to launch on Xbox One on October 15.
Developer Iron Galaxy Games and Microsoft made the release date announcement for the second season of Killer Instinct on the fighting game's official forums. The Ultra Edition for the sophomore season will cost $40 USD/£35/€40 and features eight new fighters (such as Maya), costumes and accessories, and Killer Instinct Classic 2 with multiplayer support over Xbox Live.
In addition, Microsoft says that Xbox One owners who purchase Killer Instinct: Season 2 Ultra Edition early — between September 23 and October 14 — will automatically see TJ Combo added to the roster, as well as get early access to Killer Instinct 2 Classic.
The Combo Breaker package for Killer Instinct: Season 2 costs $20/£17/€20 and comes with the eight new combatants. Standalone characters also will be available for purchase for $5/£4/€5.
Iron Galaxy, which worked on Divekick, is working on the second season, taking over duties from Double Helix, which was acquired by Amazon earlier this year.
