Thunder Next for Killer Instinct’s Free-to-play Audience


Double Helix is moving toward fast swapping character for their free-to-play Killer Instinct reboot, ditching the recently free Saberwulf for the power driven, tomahawk wielding Thunder. The change over is live now.

Thunder carries heavy, weighted motion. His leaps are slower, although his combo starters have superb range as he darts across the screen. He stands as the third entrant for free players, following the initial offering of Jago. Interestingly, Double Helix’s own creation, Sadira, has not been one of the freebies.

Coming soon is Spinal and then in a few months, Fulgore, which will complete the “first season” roster.
