A closer look at Halo’s Arbiter in Killer Instinct Season 3

arbiter killer instinctLast month, a teaser trailer for Killer Instinct Season 3 teased an upcoming fighter, and all hints pointed to the Covenant’s Arbiter. Hear what he has to say, and see some of his moves in action.

Season 3 will arrive on March 10th, bringing a handful of new and returning characters, including Kim Wu, and Tusk, as well as Battletoads character Rash. Arbiter is certainly a welcome addition, and his move set lines up with Halo’s universe, while also giving him a bit of personality in the fighting genre.

Here, we see him make use of a plasma sword as well as the infamous sticky grenades. He also has the ability to camouflage himself, which we have seen in fighting games before. A simple hit should knock him out of his ability, but if he remains patient and can avoid attacks, he could be lethal in the hands of an pro.

The new stage which he fights on is also full of details, such as Banshees, other Covenant soldiers and even a Scarab! Iron Galaxy are making a few adjustments to the gameplay of Killer Instinct for Season 3, which you can read more about here.

With Street Fighter V now available on PlayStation 4 and PC, Xbox One owners really only have Killer Instinct, Mortal Kombat X and Dead or Alive 5: Last Round to get to grips with. These are three fine fighters and aside from the lack of Street Fighter, fight fans should still be spoiled for choice.
