The Killer Instinct community once again reports disturbing news about this fighting game. The Xbox Game Studios and Iron Galaxy product has again become almost unplayable on Xbox consoles due to a new bug, the origin and causes of which still need to be fully established.
According to NickyFGC in his recent YouTube video, for a few days now, players have been experiencing not being able to select characters from the character menu before starting a battle, except for the random select option.
Access was also lost to all paid add-ons. It is noteworthy that at the time of the encounter with the bug, the game does not give any errors, so the hack likely became possible not due to the previous global error related to online matchmaking, which the developers eliminated at the end of last year. The new bug affects both online and offline modes equally, which suggests that instability in the Xbox ecosystem in determining the content already purchased from each specific user may be the root of the bug. The Steam version of Killer Instinct did not experience this issue.
We hope that such a large-scale problem can be fixed shortly.
