Back in June, Iron Galaxy Studios revealed that Killer Instinct would be coming to Steam later this year. And today, it has been confirmed that the game will support cross-network between the Steam and the Windows 10 versions. And given the fact that Killer Instinct already supports cross-play between Xbox One and Windows 10, all gamers will be able to play together.
This cross-network support will be available on Content Update 3.9. This update will add a switch that will enable the cross-network feature.
Killer Instinct will be released on Steam in the coming weeks, and during this time Iron Galaxy Studios will be testing this feature in order to make sure that all the kinks are worked out in a live environment.
“What that means for you is that you will see the option for cross play in your menus, but then there will be times where that menu item is turned off, and seemingly missing. Never fear, that is simply us working on things in the background, and your experience will not be affected as we do our work.
This feature being turned on/off will have 0 impact on your ability to play KI in-network, or between Xbox & Windows 10 players. So please, play to your heart’s content while we do the dirty work in the background.”
Here is hoping that more developers will start supporting cross-network play between Steam and Windows 10 (or GOG), as well as between the PC and all consoles!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
