Microsoft has a new trailer for Killer Instinct that shows off the moves for its horrifying spider woman and teases the return of Black Orchid.

The publisher released the video on gaming website GameSpot. It reveals the clawed character’s ability to shoot webs to quickly navigate around a level or to pull herself in close to enemies. Also, spiders are the worst, and I hate her.

Sadira is new to the Killer Instinct franchise. Killer Instincts roster now includes her and returning characters Cinder, Fulgore, Galcius, Jago, Sabrewulf, Spinal, and Thunder.

Of course, Double Helix isn’t finished adding combatants. The studio teased the return of fan-favorite Black Orchid at the end of Sadira’s video. You can see her new look in a blurry screegrab to the right.

Killer Instinct is a free-to-play launch game for Xbox One. The free version only includes Jago as a playable character. Gamers can unlock other fighters for $5 each or $20 to get access to the entire roster.

Double Helix and Microsoft will also release a $40 Ultra Edition of the game that includes all the characters and all of their costumes and accessories along with the original Killer Instinct arcade game.
