Killer Instinct: Definitive Edition Now Available On Windows 10 Via Xbox Play Anywhere


Killer Instinct: Definitive Edition is now available for Windows 10 via the Xbox Play Anywhere program, Microsoft and Iron Galaxy have announced. Previously only available on Xbox One, the Definitive Edition includes all content introduced to the beat ’em up since the original vanilla release back in 2013. And then some.

All characters, stages, behind-the-scenes videos detailing the history of the franchise and artwork feature in the bumper package, as well as Killer Instinct Classic 1 & 2, “the faithful recreation of the arcade originals,” so says the blog post on Xbox Wire.

See below for the full list of benefits:

Definitive Edition Contents

  • Every Killer Instinct fighter! That’s 26 characters, including the remastered cast, original fighters like Hisako and ARIA, and special guest characters like Arbiter from Halo, Rash from Battletoads and General RAAM from Gears of War
  • All 20 stages, with visual upgrades and lighting changes (creating absolutely improved gorgeous fighting sets)
  • Killer Instinct Classic 1 & 2 for Xbox One – the faithful recreation of the arcade originals
  • Special features like every song in the KI archives, every character trailer, and never-before-seen concept artwork
  • An interactive universe map with stage location details
  • Exclusive behind-the-scenes videos digging into the history, world, and design of this beloved franchise

If you don’t already own it on Xbox One, the Definitive Edition will set you back $39.99 from the Windows 10 store, although the former can download and play the game on PC at no additional cost. Cloud saves, Achievements and add-ons can all be transferred between platforms as well.

Signing off, Killer Instinct Sr. Marketing Manager Nicole Fawcette says that Iron Galaxy isn’t done with the fighter just yet. “We also want to let Killer Instinct players know that we’re not done yet – we’ve got some awesome surprises in sore for fans soon,” says Fawcette, perhaps hinting at a potential fourth season for 2017.
