According to the Killer Instinct official website, the new season will launch with four brand new characters: Rash, Kim Wu, Arbiter, and Tusk, with even more characters being introduced as the season progresses, with eight in total.

The game will arrive on both Xbox One and Windows 10, following the news earlier that Forza Motorsport 6 could also be getting a Windows 10 release as a slimmed down, free-to-play version.
