Killer Instinct to have endless Survival Mode at launch, Arcade Mode not available until final season 1 characters release

Killer Instinct to have endless Survival Mode at launch, Arcade Mode not available until final season 1 characters release The official Xbox magazine recently conducted an interview with Microsoft Studios game designer, Daniel Fornace, in order to discuss the upcoming Xbox One exclusive, Killer Instinct. With the game being a little bit over 2 weeks away, more information on what we'll see at launch continues to unravel.

According to the Microsoft game designer, players will not see a classic Arcade Mode in Killer Instinct at launch. This mode will become available once the final two characters of season 1 are released, (presumably, Spinal and Fulgore).

"Our Arcade mode is going to come out when we've done the eight characters," stated Fornace. "So it's not going to be at launch, at launch we're going to have six - Orchid's the last - and then we'll have two more following up post-launch."

Although this is rather unfortunate, players hoping to do battle with CPU opponents do have something to look forward to at launch. An endless "Survival Mode" will allow you to select a difficulty level, and battle through a sea of CPU opponents.

ChrisG: I don't care about EVO, before I really wanted to win but now I don't even want to be there

Acknowledging that he'd likely get a lot of hate for the statement, Christopher Gonzalez, better known in the community is AGE|NYChrisG, spoke with EventHubs correspondent Jason24cf this last weekend at Youmacon 2013 about how he didn't care about EVO anymore.

"Before I really wanted to win EVO, but now it's just like I don't even want to be there," said Gonzalez.

"I just don't like what it represents," added Gonzalez "I don't like the fact that you try so hard throughout the whole year to not really get anything."

Gonzalez felt it's just like winning another tournament, because you don't hear from the winners anymore, even if they've won EVO multiple times, they're still doing what everyone else is doing, working a 9-5 job and playing video games on the side.

While Gonzalez noted that MCZ|Daigo Umehara is an exception to this, and the event itself is prestigious, he felt that it doesn't really change things for gamers.

Gonzalez also weighs in on the selection process for Street Fighter X Tekken and UMvC3 at the Capcom Cup. To see the clip, hit the jump.

EventHubs lists top 50 current Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 players, #20 - #11 - voice your opinions on Twitter: #UMvC3rank

The tournament circuit is currently littered with amazing players from all walks of life, spanning from one fighting game to another. We decided to take a closer look at the incredible talent that is the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 scene.

The EventHubs team came together and voted on each player based on tournament results, and player skill across the globe.
