Killer Instinct’s Steam reveal is good news for fans who don’t care to be patrons of the Windows Store. With the tremendous user base on Steam, it is more than likely a good thing for the game whose player count will likely leap upon release. While it is unclear how the game will be offered, it will likely have a free base version to hook fans into getting a full version to enjoy more freedom of play. The Steam debut won’t be its first time on PC. It was originally offered to players on the computer in early spring of 2016. Since then, it has enjoyed a steady stream of new characters to keep players busy.
As seen in the video above, it’s latest character Eagle packs quite the punch. This new character is expected to join the roster of Killer Instinct characters on June 27th. Eagle is the brother of Thunder and was announced at E3 last week.
The character features a variety of moves for both ranged and close quarters combat. The character even has a flappy eagle that follows him around and assists with moves of its own. This is the extent of what details are available both on the character and on Killer Instinct’s Steam release. Pricing, launch date, and content will likely come soon, so stay tuned to DFTG for all your gaming needs! Who’s the best character in the Killer Instinct lineup so far?
