Killer Instinct's Survival mode will be ready for launch
by Alessandro Fillari

With the Xbox One coming in just two weeks, it's about time Microsoft let out a bit more information about one of its more talked-about titles. Killer Instinct is easily one of the most commonly-seen titles for the new console, and it manages to look better and better the more I see of it.

In a recent article from OXM UK, Microsoft Studios game designer Daniel Fornace details what players can expect when they fire up the game.

Because of this, Arcade mode will be out when the full eight-character roster for Season 1 is available. Which will come sometime next year.
