KILLER IN­STINCT: SEA­SON 2

Pub­lisher Mi­crosoft De­vel­oper Iron Galaxy For­mat Xbox One Re­lease Au­tumn 2014

EDGE - - MICROSOFT -

Killer In­stinct lay­ered sys­tems atop sys­tems to build a new­comer-friendly fight­ing game with enough depth for play­ers to grow. Its weak­ness has been the grad­ual ex­pan­sion of the ros­ter, which has made it dif­fi­cult for play­ers to set­tle on any one fighter as their main and also cheap­ened any tour­na­ment vic­tory. Yes, you won, but would you have won a week later against your com­peti­tor’s new Ful­gore? New de­vel­oper Iron Galaxy will move the goal­posts again for the start of the game’s sec­ond sea­son of new char­ac­ters, sys­tems and modes. TJ Combo leads the lineup and, with a place­holder Ul­tra Combo, is vis­i­bly in­com­plete; Iron Galaxy ad­mit­ted it had only been work­ing on the char­ac­ter for six weeks. Sea­son 2 is months away yet, but al­ready threat­ens to in­clude all the prob­lems of the first, and some new ones be­sides.
