Killer Instinct on Xbox One will be free-to-play, comes with just one character

In a somewhat surprising announcement at their E3 conference last night, Microsoft revealed a brand new Killer Instinct title for Xbox One. 

Showing the goofy fighting and stylish combos that are so readily associated with Killer Instict, the game looked a lot of fun when it was shown on stage yesterday afternoon. Microsoft have released new details of the game, which will be a free-to-play arcade game and will come with just one character. 

The game will be available on Xbox Live Arcade as soon as Xbox One launches, but only one character - Jago - will be included in the base game. Everyone else will require a payment if you wish to play as them. 

Some gameplay of two characters, Jago and Saberwulf, has emerged from E3. You can watch these below, thanks to IGN.

If you can pick your character great, if not the online will be everyone playing as the starter character.

One character that's very lame, should be about four, but I have no idea how many characters there are in total, so I can't really judge.

Similar to Crimson Alliance. Free to play, but you have to buy the characters. Hence, not free.

It'd have been cool if you could choose ANY character, and thus you then had to go and buy the rest if you wanted to play as more. But giving just one? That's just going to be people fighting as Jago v Jago.

For a free to play fighter to really work you need to be able to have access to 4 fighters from the strart or say free reign for 48 hours so you can try out all the characters then pick one and pay for any others you want.

For a free to play anything game to work you need players with more money than sense.

Depending on the cost of the other Character, Killer Instinct may be more expensive as a F2P game than a Retail game

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
