At the Microsoft E3 presentation, the community manager for Killer Instinct, Rukari Austin, took to the stage to discuss the state of the game and make a few announcements about the upcoming season three. He began by hyping the some of the stats: there are over seven million Killer Instinct players, and since bringing the game to Windows 10 in March, there have been over 2.5 million matches played between Xbox One and Windows 10 players. He thanked fans for helping bring guest fighters like Rash from Battletoads and Arbiter from Halo into the arena. Then, as “a special gift out there for all those Gears [of War] fans,” Austin showcased the following trailer:
The next guest fighter in Killer Instinct is the villainous General RAAM from the Gears of War series. Although no true gameplay footage was shown, it appears RAAM will be a tank like fighter, getting in close before brutally dismantling his opponents. Players can hit the arena as General RAAM for free this week.
