More Free To Play Franchises to Come to Xbox One

It is common knowledge that the Killer Instinct game was Microsoft’s test case for testing whether Free-To-Play was viable on Xbox One. The game was free with one character and additional characters, backgrounds, taunts, clothes and accessories all cost real world money. There was also a six character ‘full game’ option for £35. Over the months the free character has changed as players have had the opportunity to test Jago, Saberwulf and more recently Thunder.

Whilst players can earn KI points to unlock ‘some’ elements such as backgrounds, most of the desirable content is behind the paywall, and whilst I am tempted to buy some additional characters I need to play it more to feel comfortable with the purchase decision.

Until now, players haven’t had any feedback on how the experiment is going. Yesterday corporate vice president of Microsoft Studios Phil Spencer revealed on a Twitter chat that:

“Success with KI was a good sign and you’ll see some more IP return.”

  • Perfect Dark
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • Mickey’s Speedway USA
  • Banjo-Tooie
  • Conker’s Bad Fur Day
  • Star Fox Adventures
  • Donkey Kong Country
  • Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty’s Revenge
  • Grabbed by the Ghoulies

I think Banjo would be the top of most people’s list but personally I had a lot of fun with Star Fox, Perfect Dark and Kameo and would like to see these brought back with an Xbox One make over.
