Hey! You got a bit of Halo in my Killer Instinct!

Not quite Master Chief. I'm not complaining!

That's right. One of the most iconic characters of the Halo franchise is joining the roster of Killer Instinct Season 3. 

To be honest, I'm surprised it took the developers so long to do something like this; especially considering how many fans had been asking for it. Since other fighting games like Mortal Kombat X have pulled iconic characters from movie franchises, this seems like a natural move...unless it's some sort of troll. (I really don't think it is.)

There isn't much to take away from the teaser, although we can expect the Arbiter to be wielding the Energy Sword and/or the Carbine in fights. We'll just have to wait and see if there will be more guest characters pulled in from other gaming franchises. But for now, this is more than welcome news for fans of Killer Instinct and the Halo series alike. 

If you're a fan of both -- well -- this is a match made in heaven, right?

    I'm wondering what kind of strategies the Arbiter will be bringing with him. What strategies will players create to make the best of his moveset? What strategies will other players utilize to best take him down? Above all, what are his stats? We will have to wait and see.

    Probably a bit similar to how the predator was done in MK? After all they both have stealth/swords (predator has his claw like things)/guns to play around with
