Users of Steam can download an Xbox classic at no cost

Just a couple of years and the game of fighting found a new place to play on PC and had less popularity, yet nevertheless had enough players to justify its existence as well as the constant update.

It’s an aspect of the 10th-anniversary celebrations that the title has had and will be commemorated with an anniversary edition called Killer Instinct Anniversary Edition. All players who bought Killer Instinct prior to the release will get the updated Anniversary Edition as a free download.
It includes all characters an XP booster double for playing online, and equipment for fighters.

It’s possible that it’ll launch alongside the launch of Killer Instinct: Anniversary Edition as an alternative to buying the premium version of the game.
