Killer Instinct’s New Character Kilgore Now Available; Ultimate Finishing Moves on Their Way

on January 3, 2017 6:46 PM

Today, developer Iron Galaxy Studios announced that the long-requested feature of Ultimate finishing moves are on their way back to Killer Instinct. In addition to this news, the game’s newest character — Kilgore — is also now available.

Kilgore is available for $9.99 USD, with 50 percent of every Kilgore purchase being added (with no cap) to the KI Ultra Tour Community Fund. What this means is that the more that people buy Kilgore, the more money goes towards Killer Instinct related events in 2017.

The following description accompanies Kilgore’s listing on the Microsoft Store:

Before Fulgore and the Mark 03 units were introduced to the world, Ultratech created a line of failed cyborgs during the secret CCIX Program. These hulking battle machines bore twin overpowered chain guns that tended to overheat, making them unstable and unfit for service. But one cyborg—nicknamed Kilgore—became self-aware, and started rewriting his own software to account for this deficiency in his hardware. Saved from the scrapheap, this special unit has been brought out of retirement by ARIA to enforce her will…and Kilgore obeys.

As mentioned above, Iron Galaxy also teased some news that Ultimate finishers are set to return to the series. For those that don’t know, Ultimates were previously included in the original Killer Instinct games.

As of right now, the only Ultimate being shown off is for Jago, however, it’s safe to assume other Ultimates will be coming to other characters in the next few months.

Lastly, Iron Galaxy also detailed a whole slab of new Ultra Tour events, which can be seen in the image below.
