The game will support fighting together with players n Windows Store and Xbox One.
Killer Instinct is a free-to-play title on Windows Store and one of the premiere titles back when Xbox One was launched. The fighter is now coming to Steam and you should not worry about the player base.
The news comes form the game’s community manager, Rukari “rukizzel” Austin:
“When you download the latest Killer Instinct Content Update, if you haven’t done so already, you’ll undoubtedly notice something peculiar, so we wanted to give you a heads up at what’s to come before you spotted it in the wild. Tucked away in this CU is a switch that will enable certain feature you’ve all been clamoring for, and that feature is indeed cross-play!”
“Yes, this is your confirmation that Killer Instinct players on Xbox One or Windows 10 will be able to play cross-network with players on Steam, as well, and we’re super excited to be able to bring that feature to you when KI launches on Steam in the coming weeks.”
There is still no news as to a definite date of release but according to Austin, it’s going to be within a couple of weeks.
