Now that Fulgore is out in the wild, developer Double Helix is officially done with their commitment to the Xbox One fighter, Killer Instinct (which is great, because the studio now belongs to Amazon).
Fulgore isn’t the only update in this week’s release: Killer Instinct also gets an arcade mode as well as an lobbies for the online multiplayer for up to eight players, allowing spectators to watch ongoing fights or to challenge the winner. So, now it has the basic feature set of your average modern fighter.
This leaves Iron Galaxy nowhere to go but up.
Speaking with Polygon, Iron Galaxy CEO Dave Lang says his team was happy with what Double Helix has accomplished so far, and they’re not coming in to radically upset the game in its second season. “If we were going to work on this game and go, ‘Oh, we want to change everything,’ if we were in that position, it’d be a mess. I’m not sure if we would have taken the gig,” Lang told Polygon’s Samit Sarkar.
Lang wouldn’t offer specifics on his studio’s plans for the second season, but we can hope for additional features as well as new characters in the free-to-play fighter.
Fulgore is free if you bought the full version of Killer Instinct and $4.99 if you’d like to buy him a la carte.
