#CEO2018 announces a $15,000 pot bonus for @KillerInstinct, courtesy of the KI Ultra Tour!
Last Friday, a $15,000 pot bonus for Killer Instinct was announced by Combo Breaker, which is set to take place at the Mega Center in Illinois on May 25-27, 2018.
Today, CEO 2018 has announced a similar bonus for Killer Instinct: $15,000 provided by the Kilgore Community Fund. This event will kick off from June 29th to July 1st at Daytona Beach's Ocean Center in Florida. The KI bracket will be run as a one-day event for Saturday, June 30th and will start at 10 A.M. Eastern Time. Finals will take place in the all-new arena for CEO.
Like with Combo Breaker, the Top 16 participants at CEO will be awarded their share of the prize pool. If you have yet to register, we recommend doing so now at smash.gg/ceo-2018-fighting-game-championships.
When the first pot bonus was announced for Combo Breaker, it was explicitly stated in the official Killer Instinct Twitter that it'd be the first of two events lined up for such benefits this year. Naturally, followers reached the sad conclusion that only two events would receive this level of support in 2018.
But according to DJamesGoddard, the Design Director for Killer Instinct at Microsoft, it appears that more could be on the way, including a new "online series."
Despite rapidly approaching five years since its launch alongside the Xbox One, Killer Instinct has plenty of life left in it for those aspiring to compete for the game! Get ready to #PlayKI.

Killer Instinct is currently available as a free downloadable title on Xbox One and Windows 10, although its characters must be purchased before use, either separately or via either the Combo Breaker Edition or Ultra Edition of each of the game's three seasons. In the case of Kilgore, Shin Hisako and Eagle, they can only be purchased separately. In addition, KI is available as a complete package on Steam for $39.99.
