Killer Instinct is once again spinning the wheel on Xbox One and rotating its free-to-play character, meaning current character Thunder is heading off and being replaced by the next one.

After having Thunder replace Sabrewulf a few weeks agoKiller Instinct will instead be having Orchid as its new free character for those playing the free-to-play version of the game. Coming from the original Killer Instinct with her well-known “fire-cat” abilities, Orchid will now be available to play for free in Killer Instinct.

Killer Instinct released with the Xbox One launch in November 2013, and features a free-to-play version with options to purchase individual characters, or paid versions of the game with more characters/maps to play.
