    Cool i already own Killer Instrinct on steam. Nice to know that i will get the anniversary edition for free when they retire the existing one.

    • A big Patch 3.10 was recently released, ahead of the upcoming Anniversary Edition Upgrade for paid owners

  • Great post, great game, few quick questions:

    1. Can you do price protection claims with 28 on digital game purchases?

    2. If you have the disc version definitive edition of the game do you still get the free upgrade to the anniversary edition or is it digital owners only?

    3. I got a Gargos gold DLC with one of my purchases of the game & have the definitive edition, besides the double XP is there anything significant I would be missing out on by not having the anniversary edition?

    Thanks to anyone who can answer any of these!

  • UPDATE: this was the last discounted sale for the pre-Anniversary Edition version of Killer Instinct and that expired a short while ago, when the developers changed the base game version's pricing from its former retail price, to $0 (technically, Free-to-Play).

    As such, it seemed prudent to expire this particular deal post as per the original pre-Anniversary Edition game having its promotion's ending today on the Steam store.

    … and then I submitted a new deal post, which has been marked as a Long Running Deal (i.e. the Killer Instinct base game now being free-to-play)
