Microsoft confirmed today at Gamescom that its Xbox One fighting game Killer Instinct will release for free with one fighter (Jago) and that each additional character will cost $5.
Microsoft also plans to release DLC combo packs with multiple characters and extras too; the Combo Breaker Pack ($20) will offer the first eight characters from the game (six at launch, two later on down the road); and the Ultra Edition ($40) which features eight characters, accessory packs, costumes, and a digital copy of the original Killer Instinct game.
Microsoft also announced the latest fighter to join the lineup – Chief Thunder. Thunder joins previously announced fighters Jago, Sabrewulf, and Glacius.
Killer Instinct is one of 23 Xbox One launch titles Microsoft highlighted today at Gamescom, alongside games like Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4.
The Xbox One launches in November for $500.
