After their impressive display of Gear of War 4 gameplay at the Microsoft E3 presentation, Iron Galaxy took to the stage to tie that franchise in with their own Killer Instinct. While General Raam’s inclusion in KI was leaked a few months back, this is the first time we got to see the massive Locust in action while he was swarmed by his alien brethren. And the best news is that he’s out now for both the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions! His moveset was meaty yet smooth, and he definitely looks like he’s going to be a powerhouse. Raam’s inclusion marks the third guest character to grace Killer Instinct for their third season update, joining Rash from Battletoads and the Arbiter from Halo. This has been a huge change from the lack of any guests characters from the first two seasons, and it should be interesting to see how fans react. I will hold my judgments to see how Raam feels once I get ahold of him in the next few days.
