Killer Instinct's Thunder now free, knocks Sabrewulf out

New, 45 comments

The tomahawk-wielding American Indian brawler Thunder is now free in Double Helix Games' free-to-play fighting game Killer Instinct.

Thunder replaces Sabrewulf, who replaced Jago earlier this month. In his current incarnation, Thunder (who was known as Chief Thunder in previous games) wields his classic tomahawks but was reimagined as a more aggressive fighter that design director David Verfaillie called a "superhuman, fantastical character."

The Xbox One exclusive launched alongside Microsoft's next-gen console last November and always includes one free character, with the option to purchase more individually or as bundles. You can learn more about Double Helix's Killer Instinct in our E3 in-depth interview with the developer.
