Orchid Smashes Into Killer Instinct's Roster

The Killer Instinct reboot is the only next-gen fighter on the horizon and we're seeing more characters being added to the free-to-play(ish) title. The latest addition is Orchid, a baton-wielding female fighter who transforms into a tiger. So yeah, she's a bit feisty.

The new trailer shows her giving a hell of a beating to Jago and there's a bit of tease for Spinal being the next character to be announced too. If you haven't heard already, the game will be an exclusive free download on the Xbox One, but all the characters -except for Jago- will have to be paid for separately. It's an interesting concept, especially as many fighter fans usually stick with a small handful of characters, so it could work. Fingers crossed that you'll at least be able to try them out before buying though. For more details on pricing and bundles click here.

A mate has just received an email from Microsoft rewarding him with Killer instinct for free for being a dedicated customer.
As in, he's getting all characters free, not just one.

Lots of reports now of people getting all characters for free "as a reward for their dedication" - and a few reports of people getting free xbox one consoles!

Nothing in my inbox. Gutted.

No official word on what the criteria are.
For the record I have 60,883 gamerscore and my gold account has been on for about 5 years without a break.
My mate has 99,980 gamerscore* and has had intermittent gold in recent years.

*He could've passed 100k about a month ago, but deliberately stopped himself on 99980 - and started a final playthrough of Lost Odyssey, his favourite game. He has one achievement left on the game, for 20 GS, so thought it'd be fitting to land on 100k by playing his favourite game, and start on the xb1 with 100,000 exactly.

As is my duty as a mate, I've planted the idea that if he'd passed 100k last month he might've gotten a free console today instead of a few unlocked characters... ;)

Damn. Messed that up with some dodgy bbcode that's resulted in the Edit button going
offscreen so I can't fix it...
