Fulgore now playable in Killer Instinct, patch adds arcade mode and more

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • April 8, 2014 at 5:56 p.m. PDT

Showing up a little earlier the anticipated, the Killer Instinct team released a new update for the game today which makes Fulgore playable.

The update is a 6.8 gigabyte download, and Fulgore will be selectable if you own the $20 or more editions of Killer Instinct.

The update also adds Arcade Mode and online lobbies into the mix, featuring eight player rooms and spectating functionality.

We've transcribed notes straight from the development team on how Fulgore plays, and some strategies you can employ with him.

You can find Fulgore's reveal trailer after the jump, if you haven't seen it already.

6.8 gigabyte download! Dang that's alot. 500 GB won't last long with games taking so much space.

I was thinking the same thing a while ago when I heard some games were 50+GB to download. We should've got 1,000 GB's.

It's a shame that my stats got reset before the patch :c But will still play for fun :D the 92 achievements can prove what I have done with the game already xD

like u, i couldn t wait for october, it is worth importing a one just for this game! but online it is a lot of waiting for matches, it ll probably get better when the system is released in all of europe... but this game rocks imho!!!

It downloaded in like 20 minutes for me. Not bad. But as others have said, I don't think 500 GB will last 8 years like the 20 GB on my Xbox 360 did. I'm already at 10.4% used.

Playing in a few endless lobbies last night it occurred to me why they probably had to delay the lobbies for so long. They HAD to fix the crashing/freezing issues with the game first. What is an annoyance for 2 people in a ranked match would absolutely kill the game for people if it were an issue in 8 person lobbies. It would be disastrous for the long term life of the game.
I played for about 2 hours last night and thankfully it didn't crash once. I'm curious what others have experienced so far. I did have a de-synch problem in a match though. I won the match on my end but ended up getting sent to the back of the line after the fight. Major pain.

Shadow Jago has a no mercy... guess that's a teaser for the rest of the characters
