Killer Instinct hits Windows 10 with Xbox One cross-play tomorrow

Killer Instinct season 3 is coming to PC with Xbox One cross-play.

For all you Killer Instinct fans, you can now rejoice. Microsoft Studios and Iron Giant are launching the game tomorrow, March 29, 2016 for Windows 10. They are also releasing the game with Xbox One cross-play, so those of you with an Xbox One can now play with your friends on both PC and console.

This marks the first time the game has moved away from the Xbox platform since its initial release in 2013.

Killer Instinct is a free-to-play game with an item shop where you can purchase individual fighters or character bundles. Everything you already own for Killer Instinct on the Xbox you will not have to re-purchase -- it will move over to the Windows 10 platform.

In order to get everything moved over to the Windows version, you will need to log in to your Xbox game and receive the full Season 3 update available starting March 29. Your Xbox 360 fight sticks will work with the Season 3 update, and full Windows 10 support is coming in a future update.

The launch announcement was made on Killer Instinct's official Twitter page.
