S1 Ultra and Combo owners, YOU get a deal on S2 Ultra Edition!
Starting on 9/23 with Early Access, and ending 9/29, all Season 1 Ultra or Combo owners will get an automatic 10% discount on the purchase of the S2 Ultra Edition! It’s our way of saying thanks for being part of S1 and believing in k!ller Instinct.
Even if you buy S1 (Ultra or Combo) during that week, you can immediately take advantage of the discount on S2 Ultra Edition!
Early Access and the S1 balance update
On Monday the 22nd, the balance update for S1 will be pushed out and your game will be updated. On Tuesday the 23rd, early access starts. You will not have the ability to purchase the S2 Ultra Edition and get early access to TJ until the 23rd, so DON'T PANIC if you get the update on Monday but can't buy into S2. We wanted to make sure everyone had the update first.
By now, you’ve all seen Maya’s trailer. She’s an incredible character with a ton of combo and juggling options that make her amazing not only to play but to watch, too. You have only around a month before you get to play her! 60FPS version of her trailer and Ultra coming soon!
The next character teased!
We gave you a very early glimpse of the next character releasing this season. His name and origin will remain a mystery for now, but his stage, cluttered with the artifacts he’s gathered over the centuries for his dark research, is called The Forbidden Archive. You’ll know this character’s name and more of his background by Season 2 launch, and you can look for him and his trailer to arrive in November.
Maya @ TGS
Maya is playable at TGS, and we’ll be having streams and more detail on her moves and mechanics soon. We’ve got this whole S2 early access thing launching in 5 DAYS, so let’s get through that first, eh?
Yes! There is a new UI that goes in line with the theme of this season’s story, “The Rise of Ultratech”. We’ve shown it to you a bit early at TGS, and you can look for it to be evolving up to S2’s launch and beyond.
New Progression mechanics
As some have noticed in the new UI preview at TGS, we’ve overhauled the ranking and leveling system for S2 to make it more friendly towards earning your costumes, accessories, and other badges of honor. A player will have a character level for each individual character, and a player level for overall progression. Every mode you play (except dojo / lab) contributes to character and player level, so you’ll be earning progression towards specific unlocks (for the character you’re playing) and global unlocks any time you’re playing KI in any way. We’ll have more on the new progression system before S2’s launch.
S2 characters first for Ultra Edition owners
Last season, Ultra and Combo owners got new characters on the same day. This season, S2 Ultra Edition owners will get each new character first. Several days later, S2 Combo pack owners will get them. Sometime after the combo pack gets them, they will be available for individual purchase.
We’ve got a special surprise for you next week!
And a tease!
Boy, with all the info already this week, what could I possibly tease? How’s this:
At the end of TJ’s teaser, he was lit up by someone or something behind him. There’s only two characters from the original KI that could have possibly created a glow like that. Whichever one it was, they are returning this season. What about the other? We’re not saying yet if they’re coming this season or next. Continue the speculation!
5 DAYS TO EARLY ACCESS!
