Killer Instinct Patch Rotates Free Character, Fixes Bugs

Killer Instinct Patch Rotates Free Character, Fixes Bugs

If you have been playing Killer Instinct for free, but got tired of Jago, Double Helix Games has just the thing for you.

Similar to popular MOBA League of Legends, Killer Instinct has initiated a rotating model for their free character.  Althoug Jago has been freely available since launch, yestrerday’s patch replaced him with Sabrewulf, moving Jago behind the paywall.  This is a smart move, as it allows people to get a glimpse of certain characters before they buy them.  It has certainly worked well for League of Legends, and it’s nice to see Double Helix taking cues from something that works.

A new freebie isn’t the only change the patch brought, as Double Helix made a number of bug fixes.  You can read the full list on their forum, but some of the biggies include the fifth character color unlocking properly and a Kinect-related save data glitch.

It’s nice to see a free-to-play title receive this level of commited support.  Hopefully Double Helix keeps it up.  Might I suggest Glacius as the next free character?

A frequent Top 10 list writer and uber SNES fan, Blake can still to this day be found playing Final Fantasy VI on occasion, even though it is probably bad for his health at this point (we’re not sure he knows there are actually other games out there). When not writing, editing or gaming, Blake enjoys bothering people with his guitar, drinking more than is safe and talking about this totally crazy weather. Blake is also very involved in the Game Informer community, has a sick Minecraft world he would love to show you.
