"Killer Instinct" Season 2 has unveiled the latest additions to their roster of fighters, featuring Omen, the Herald of Gargos, and Golem, Polygon reported.

"Killer Instinct" is a series of fighting video games created and developed by Rare. It was initially published by Midway and Nintendo, with two games released in 1994 and 1996, before Microsoft Studios took over the company. They released "Killer Instinct" Season 1 in November 2013 and Season 2 in October 2014 exclusively for the Xbox One.

Since then, Microsoft planned to offer new characters for Season Two, each one released monthly starting October last year.

This month's offering is none other than Omen, who was introduced through a trailer posted on Saturday on the game's official YouTube channel.

Fans and gamers were already aware of Omen's addition when it was announced by Microsoft earlier this month, according to Game Spot.

Omen was said to have move sets that are similar to Jago from the original 1994 "Killer Instinct" game, but he will also showcase new moves. He also has three Shadow stocks and new Shadow-powered abilities that cancel any action, turn him into a shadow and help him move short distances in any direction, the report explained. He also has aerial movement options, Slide, multi-hitting close-range kick special, a special move that burns all 3 Shadow stocks and powerful projectile zoning.

Omen is already the fifth character being added to "Killer Instinct" Season 2, but what also excited fans and gamers is the sneak peek of next month's addition.

It's none other than Golem, whose large, hulking form appeared near the end of Omen's trailer bursting through a wall.

The creative director of Microsoft Studios himself, Adam Isgreen also confirmed Golem's appearance in a tweet sent out on Sunday, saying, "Omen! Golem!"

Omen is a bonus character and will be available on Jan. 30 for the owners of the Ultra Edition of the game, and on Feb. 5 for those with the Combo Breaker Edition of the game.

There is no word yet on when Golem is getting into the game, though more information about the character is expected to come next month. For now though, fans can already watch out for Golem, a brand new character, who will come with a unique arsenal of attacks, according to Game Rant.

Golem and Omen will be joining other previously introduced characters Riptor, the cybernetically enhanced velociraptor; Kan-Ra, the Ancient Babylonian sorcerer; T.J Combo, known for his cybernetic implants; and Maya, a member of a clan of monster hunters, Game Rant added.
