Before Fulgore and the Mark 03 units were introduced to the world, Ultratech created a line of failed cyborgs during the secret CCIX Program. These hulking battle machines bore twin overpowered chain guns that tended to overheat, making them unstable and unfit for service. But one cyborg—nicknamed Kilgore—became self-aware, and started rewriting his own software to account for this deficiency in his hardware. Saved from the scrapheap, this special unit has been brought out of retirement by ARIA to enforce her will…and Kilgore obeys.
And we’re happy to say that Kilgore is available now, to everyone! Better yet, Kilgore is leading the charge for the 2017 KI Ultra Tour, and will be headlining the oft-requested return of the Community Fund.
If anything we just mentioned above sounds unfamiliar, allow us to get you up to speed. The KI Ultra Tour has already begun sporting over $100,000, funded by the Microsoft Studios team, for pot bonuses and Tournament Organizer production support. This Tour is still underway with a $30,000 pot on the line at the KI CUP March 10th.
Here’s a look at more KI Ultra Tour events coming this year.
