See Killer Instinct's new golem in action and a tease of its next fighter

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

Microsoft and Iron Galaxy Studios unveiled a new trailer for Killer Instinct's next character today, the war golem Aganos, showing how the walking boulder plays in the Xbox One fighting game. There's also a pretty blatant tease for what appears to be a new character tacked on at the end.

Aganos has a number of rock-based moves at his disposal, letting him summon forth a column of stone to wall in his opponent or shatter it for use as a club. He can also use rocks as projectiles and flail his arms around like a windmill, thanks to his stone, metal and vine construction. Narratively, Aganos is on a quest to defeat Kan-Ra, the ancient mummy added in Season 2 of Killer Instinct.

The next character coming after Aganos appears to be an onryo, or Japanese ghost, based on the teaser above. It looks like she'll wield a naginata or some other type of pole arm in battle.

Aganos will be available to owners of the Ultra Edition of Killer Instinct on Feb. 27. Combo Breaker Edition owners will get him on March 5.
