What to buy: Supreme or Definitive Edition?

Definitive edition has more stuff and is cheaper(I’m pretty sure the supreme edition will probably get a price cut) and its a physical disc sooo…


Definitive edition has everything supreme edition has (minus cross buy) for a cheaper price.


Definitive Edition. Hands Down.

You are correct, the digital version is the only one which gives acess to both the X1 and PC versions through Play Anywhere.

Thanks guys for all the replies!

Definitive edition does not come with classic skins or premium character accessories, (that’s why it costs less).
But the definitive edition is cross buy (provided you have an Xbox to put the disk into). It is currently impossible to unlock content on only one version of the game. It’s the exact same account for PC and Xbox1. the reason it says XB1 only is because it comes on an XB1 format disc.

This is all wrong. Definitive edition does come with all the costumes and accessories and it is not cross buy. When you buy a game physically there is no ownership tied to your account, so as far as your account is concerned you don’t own the game.

hi there, I’m new to the forums and the game. I finally upgraded to Windows 10 and wanted to give Killer Instinct a shot. so far it looks pretty awesome. but as a PC player (I don’t have a XBO) I’m asking myself the same question. I probably would’ve bought the supreme pack but should I wait for the definitive edition? will there even be a PC version of it or don’t I need to bother and can get the supreme pack right now?

What is your source for this? I double checked every official announcement of the definitive edition and they clearly list every single thing that is included and say nothing about skins or accessories, (with the exception of the gold Gargos colour).
And they have clearly stated that everything in the game is cross-buy no matter what, on numerous occasions. Even the physical combo breaker edition is cross-buy despite being on an Xb1 disc!

I would just wait for the Definitive Edition. You get more, plus it’s on disc, and you get a thing or two you can’t get in the Supreme Edition like Gold Gargos skin, the physical soundtrack, and some behind the scenes footage.

Unless you want classic skins and premium accessories which are not in the definitive edition.

They aren’t? It doesn’t come with all the retros and accessories? That’s a bit odd.

It’s why definitive costs less than the supreme edition despite definitive coming with physical soundtrack and other bonus features. It would be odd getting more content for less money.

I wouldn’t trust Xbox team as a source of valid information as far as I can throw them.

and I would like @rukizzel to confirm if he meant that the definitive edition can not be redeemed on PC or that the content unlocked by the definitive edition is disabled when playing on PC.

What’s odd is calling it “Definitive” when it’s missing already available content, IMO.

I always thought these Definitive/Complete/GOTY editions were supposed to be the all in one, everything we have to offer package.

I understand it not coming with color 10s that are figure exclusive, but not retros.

They are adding more skins/accessories latter, it’s just definitive character wise… unless we get more characters latter also.

Ok Guys so now that the Definitive Edition has been released on PC, I would like to know how it compares to the PC version of Supreme Edition - are there any “EXCLUSIVE” Definitive edition in-game goodies that us Supreme Edition or lower owners will never be able to access, or is it just everything already unlocked that you normally have to grind for, or what?

Also is it true that the gold Gargos Skin is a DEFINITIVE edition exclusive?

Hope someone can enlighten us - I just wanna know if it is worth spending another 60 bux or whatever for collection purposes or not :slight_smile:

Definitive edition comes with shadow Jago and Gold/Platinum Gargos and some free gold skins.

Supreme edition does not come with shadow Jago and Gold/Platinum Gargos. and you need to pay for gold skins (it is currently unknown if you will be allowed to buy gold/platinu Gargos sepperately in the future.)

Outside of the actual game the Definitive edition also includes app that contains character bios, behind the scenes video interviews, and even moar concept art.

just purchased and installed definitive edition for PC

If you already own supreme edition for windows 10 PC, and you also spend the extra $$ to download the definitive edition, the definitive edition download bundle is only about 6GB. I already own supreme edition for PC and this is what you get, or at least what I got…

*Everything included with supreme edition except the bonus KI Gold (all season 1 2 3 characters and retro costumes)
*Shadow Jago
*Gold and platinum skins for gargos.
*A separate shell package application with extra art/videos/ soundtrack / character story/bio stuff which is like a big gallery mode including an option to launch the default killer instinct app

some people are saying their got extra gold skins - I did not - GOLD skin pack 1 and 2 are still available for individual purchase for 7.95 each in the skins store even after installing the definitive edition bundle.

Also I saw some people saying you get some premium character accessories included with definitive edition - I cant see any. every character accessory still needs to be unlocked if you have not already as far as I can see.

Also to state the obvious, you don’t get any mimic or shadow skins - the only extra skins you get are the 2 x premium gargos skins.
