Killer Instinct for the Xbox One is Double Helix's revival of Rare's classic 1995 fighting game for the SNES. In addition to classic gameplay features like the Ultra Combo and Combo Breakers, the new Killer Instinct title introduces the Instinct Mode which allows players to augment their character with unique enhancements during a match as well as improving combo potential.

Killer Instinct launched alongside the Xbox One platform as a free-to-play title, with eight characters (plus one exclusive for Xbox Live Gold subscribers) as part of the first season of content. More playable characters will be introduced in upcoming season downloads.
