The character was previously teased to join the game earlier this year, and now it’s confirmed. Microsoft Studios has officially announced that the The Arbiter from the Halo franchise has been confirmed to join the fighter roster for Killer Instinct: Season Three. You can check out the new trailer for The Arbiter in the game in the player below. The Arbiter is the latest special guest character for the game, joining Rash of the Battletoads franchise.
The new trailer showcases The Arbiter’s fighting moves, and his use of an energy sword. Seeing how well it works for fighting game franchises like Soul Calibur and Mortal Kombat, adding special guest characters from other franchises for Killer Instinct makes a lot of sense. Hopefully, The Arbiter could the start of future guest characters coming to Killer Instinct, even if it simply means other Microsoft-owned franchise characters joining the roster. If Rash from Battletoads can join the game, why not Conker from Conker’s Bad Fur Day?
Eight new characters are already confirmed for the next season of Killer Instinct, including Rash from Battletoads, Kim Wu, Tusk and Gargos from Killer Instinct 2, and now The Arbiter from Halo. Killer Instinct: Season 3 is set to launch on Xbox One and Windows 10 next month.
