    If windows 10 is anything like 8, I'm not sure I want to infect my PC with it just to play KI.

    I cannot wait til this happens. I just curious about stick support outside of native support for 360 & XB1 sticks. Currently my PS4/PS3 TE2 works for other fighting games on PC, so I wonder if I'll be able to use it for KI

    I was planning to get an Xbox One only for this game, but after I heard this great news, I'm glad; I don't need an Xbox One, I'll just get myself a gaming PC.
    If Killer Instinct 1 and 2 will also be released on PC, I'll be happy.

    I'm about to jump into PC gaming, which gaming PC can perform as good as (or better than) PS4 and XB1 with an affordable price?

    Killer instinct needs as many platforms as possible. This was inevitable, predictable and basically a dead end if not ported to windows or playstation.
    I'm starting to think street fighter 5 is the only reason this happened tbh.

    People have been pushing for a PC port for a long time. The main reason is because PC is the only other platform KI had a chance of hitting as the IP is owned by Microsoft. Which means there's zero chance for it to ever hit Sony or Nintendo so the next best thing is to make sure it's at least accessible to anyone who has a decent PC which is way more people than who own Xbones.

    As owning the IP, PC is the only other platform this game will get on. It's like Nintendo and Smash or Sony and Uncharted. It's not going to anything that they can't give the rights to so this is the best that can be done to make it accessible to a much wider audience.

    KI 1 and 2 should come along too, as they're included with the Ultra versions of each season, and they've stated any DLC will carry over.

    Any fight sticks that work with PC, should work with KI on PC, so I don't see any issues.

    Me too, i don't own a xbox one and i have no plans in getting one and since ST and 3S i didn't like the new fighting games until KI3, i just hope this game meets my expectations.

    The port KI1 and 2 should have the netcode of the main game.

    It will. I bought an XB1 purely for KI and it was worth every penny. Now I can play it on everything I own and against friends who don't have an XB1.

    I hope the PC version of Killer Instinct will not be a disaster at launch, remember Mortal Kombat X anyone?

    EDIT: And look at Batman Arkham Knight...wow...

    Luckily they're not outsourcing the port to another company or anything like that. Iron Galaxy is also working on the PC port so it should hopefully be one and one with the Xbox One version.

    PC Port acting really sketchy. Not sure if that was a 3rd party making the port, but yeah everyone's complaining that it's really messing up ATM.

    Assuming the PC port comes out in 2016, do you guys think it will revive the game or does it need a season 3 with new characters to stay relevant?

    I think it will expand the player base even more and coupled with Season 3, well what am I doing here, lel

    Hard to say. It's biggest problem is that it is coming up against the juggernaut that is Street Fighter V (made even harder by the fact that response to V has been pretty positive, with the game seemingly addressing the problems IV had). The other issue is the fact that PS4 is widely becoming the standard for competitive fighting games this gen. Most new games are being played on it (even MKX is played on PS4 save for on the ESL online league) and it's looking to have a larger library of fighters, on top of a larger install base. So in a way, it's still somewhat going to have to deal with the whole XBox One deal, especially for TOs who never picked it up (or in the case of some, dropped the console).

    I think it will find an audience since it is ftp. You get one character right..Jago? I think everyone will try it out at least, then some will buy more characters. Speaking of which, there are probably a lot right now. So will there be any package deal to get all the characters?

    The free character rotates every two weeks IIRC.

    40 bucks gets you all the characters that are out right now other than Shadow Jago (buy the Season 1 and Season 2 Combo Breaker packages at 19.99 each). He was a special promotion character that they may resell later. I'm sure once its on Windows 10 they'll regularly have sales for the complete edition that gives you all the retro outfits, accessories and Classic KI/2.

    Actually, the Shadow Jago that we had was just a skin for regular Jago and did not have the special moves of the hidden boss. He's going to be re-released later this year with his own move set.

    yo.
    this is legit.

    KI has looked super fun to me since release.
    maybe i'm insane but the combo/combobreaker system makes me think a little 3S.
    Play more.
  • NaerasNaeras Terribad Joined: Posts: 3,428
    So, there's no word on when the port actually comes out?

    I really want to try this game out. Looks like a game that allows for a lot of playstyles with a cast that diverse, and the combo breaker system allows for some cool interactions. Currently planning on playing Fulgore and shout TIGER whenever I throw a projectile. =V

    Oh wow I never expect MS would allow KI to move to PC.
    I wonder if a PC port would keep this ship from sinking.

    With no excuse not having a system to play the new KI on I wonder if it be worth my time to download.
