Are you ready to usher in Omen, Herald of Gargos; the latest fighter for Killer Instint? Releasing this season, the fifth character is not part of the eight characters given this season; instead he is a bonus character for all season 2 owners.

Described as the “best zoning characters in KI… situationally,” he has the ability to learn environments so he can take advantage the zoning tools provided. He also has the ability to change the psychological pace of the game.

More information will be revealed next week when the studio live streams the character, and release a full character trailer.

The character will feature:

  • 3 shadow stocks
  • Shadow-powered ability to cancel any action, turn into shadow, and move a short distance in any direction
  • Multi-hitting close-range kick special
  • Powerful projectile zoning with some radical projectile options
  • A special move that burns all 3 stocks
  • Aerial movement options

Since Omen is a bonus character, he will not have a story mode but will be present in season 2’s cast members storylines which will impact the story on a larger scale.
