This news is perfect for Killer Instinct fans who do not have an Xbox One and want nothing to do with the Windows Store: apparently, the game will be available on Steam “later this year.” Being a “Play Anywhere” title, some say that the UWP version is preferable because you get a second, free copy for the Xbox, but I can’t imagine I’d be playing the inferior version of the game all that much, if at all. At this year's Community Effort Orlando tournament, the Killer Instinct finals were on the main stage. After their conclusion, we got a special announcement: the game is heading to Steam later this year. Killer Instinct confirmed the news on their official Twitter page. Iron Galaxy and Microsoft did not announce a solid date, pricing, or other specifics. However, if you were looking to get into the flashy fighter but like to keep your PC gaming squarely in Valve's ecosystem, this should be good news.
