The latest Killer Instinct title for Xbox One has taken quite an odd approach to free-to-play, and in my opinion it has worked quite well. By featuring a rotation system similar to that found in popular MOBA League of Legends, players can get a taste of all the characters in Killer Instinct, and splash out on the game if they feel a certain attachment to a character they have had the chance to play.
To keep things interesting though, Iron Galaxy Studios have planned to throw in more characters into the roster, and once season 2 kicks off, Killer Instinct will see it's first set of new characters.
Probably the most interesting addition to season 2 will be Maya, a character that has only been seen in one other game in the franchise, Killer Instinct 2, back in 1996. Maya is an Amazonian warrior who banished the evil dark lord Gargos to become the queen of Amazonia.
The second character announced for season 2 was thought by many to be Cinder, a fire based fighter, but this latest announcement confirms that Maya will be introduced to the game instead.
Earlier in the year, TJ Combo, a very popular ex-boxer character from the Killer Instinct franchise was also confirmed to be making it into the roster once season 2 starts.
Both characters will be purchasable as DLC content, however their release date, along with season 2, has currently not been revealed. However, we expect Killer Instinct season 2 to be released fairly soon.
