Killer Instinct is out on PC! And it sucks! Who would have thought? :]
I’ve been looking forward to the PC release of Killer Instinct ever since I got rid of my X1 a few months ago. It’s the only X1 game that I truly missed playing and now that’s here I can’t even enjoy it. Why? Because in order for me to enjoy the game I need to log in on my X1 account and download the season 3 update so all of my characters, and accessories will carry over.
I got rid of my X1 because it sucked. I’m not into console gaming anymore and I have no plans of ever returning to them at the moment. I shouldn’t have to log in to a Xbox One to play the PC port of the game that Microsoft themselves said would carry over all of our content if we went ahead and got it on PC.
So in order for me to enjoy Killer Instinct on X1 I would have to buy the entire game all over again so I can play as all of my favorite characters and I refuse to do that. To make matters worse my gamertag from the X1 shows up in the PC port, but I’ve been reduced to level 1 and none of my content carried over.
My excitement quickly faded away when I realized that none of my hard earned content carried over from the X1.
Fuck Microsoft. I’m done.
Thanks for reading.
The so called “fix” that Microsoft applied to Killer Instinct didn’t work. It worked for about an hour, but now it’s telling me to log in from my X1 again and won’t give me access to any content that I previously purchased. If you’re hoping to play this game with your X1 account and you no longer have a X1 you might want to hold off until it’s properly fixed.
