Chief Thunder taps in Orchid as the next F2P Killer Instinct fighter

Orchid is now free in Double Helix Games’ free-to-play fighting game Killer Instinct, knocking out  the tomahawk-wielding American Indian brawler Thunder.

The fighter was featured in the original Killer Instinct title and had the ability to transform into a fire cat. Orchid’s return was first teased in a Killer Instinct trailer in September, depicting the fighter making a fire cat materialize.

Last month, Thunder replaced Sabrewulf, who replaced Jago earlier. Known previously as Chief Thunder in previous games, Thunder was redesigned as a more aggressive "superhuman, fantastical character" according to design director David Verfaillie.

Killer Instinct launched alongside the Xbox One in November. Players can purchase individual fighters for $4.99 with multi-character packs available for $19.99. The game will receive a second season of playable characters this year.
