Killing Floor 2 Takes A Tropical Vacation In Latest Update

Posted on January 19, 2017 by Rae Michelle Richards

Killing Floor 2 gets a huge content infusion with the release of the Tropical Bash Content Pack on Windows PC and PlayStation 4 today. Bringing a brand new map set on a tropical island, a new mace & shield for the Berserker class, a new type of energy and the ability to cross-class certain weapon types – this update looks to kick off 2017 with a bang.

New Map

Set on the tropical island of Zed Landing (isn’t that name appropriate for an area infested with the undead), this brand new maps sees players explore a downed helicopter while an imposing volcano bellows smoke off in the distance.  Alongside this brand new map is a whole set of new achievements for Zed slayers to collect.

New Enemy 

A brand new horrifying monstrosity is awaiting to be unleashed on Zed Landing, the Gore Fiend. Featuring a grotesque long tongue and two rusty blades for hands this new undead nightmare is nothing to laugh at, perhaps it is really a cut above the rest of the Zeds? 

New Weapons For Berserker 

Berserkers get a brand new tier 4 weapon with the addition of the Bone Crusher. Comprised of a spiked circular shield and a make-shift mace made out of a baseball bat and some long nails this new kit should enable the Berserker to crush in the skulls of the hordes of Zed. The hubcap shield can also be used to parry enemies causing them to stagger backwards. 

Cross-Classing Weapons

Do you find yourself picking a class like Command only to find yourself adopting a single weapon from another class because it suits your playstyle more? With the new cross-class system many different weapons can be combined during play which should open up new options for those who like to stick to a single class. While Tripwire didn’t publish a complete list of cross-class weapon combinations they did provide a few examples:

  • Use the HMTech Medical Assault Rifle, the Incendary Trench Gun or M16 M293 as the Commando.
  • Use the VLAD-1000 Nail Gun as Support.
  • Use the HMTech-201 Sub Machinegun as SWAT.

Killing Floor 2 is currently also on sale on Steam for $19.99 USD. Check out Tripwire’s official blog post for more information on the latest update.



Killing Floor 2 Has Gone Gold On All Platforms

Posted on November 13, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Tripwire Interactive and publisher Deep Silver have jointly announced that Killing Floor 2 has gone gold on PS4 and Windows PC. This means that the zombie slaughtering team shooter will be leaving Steam Early Access after being in development for the past 18 months, originally going live in March 2015 on Windows.

Killing Floor was partially developed with the help of Sony Computer Interactive – as the motion capture for the game’s animations were captured at Sony’s Santa Monica California motion capture studios. Other technological innovations in KF2 include the evisceration system which allows individual limbs to separated with each enemies having five distinct separation points. The graphics team at Tripwire interactive also focused heavily on how blood was rendered in the game – spending considerable time on how blood was generate from wounds and how it split onto surfaces.

An open beta was available on PlayStation 4 for all the check out earlier this month. The physical release of Killing Floor 2 will be priced at $49.99 CDN on PS4.

Here’s a picture of the development team that Tripwire released in celebration of the game being complete:

Posted on July 6, 2012 by Daniel Shannon

The second annual Killing Floor Summer Sideshow event has just begun. As with other seasonal events, the sideshow changes up Killing Floor’s usual menagerie of misanthropic mutants. Instead of facing off against angry, generally nude, specimens, Killing Floor owners will be facing angry specimens with freak show skins. The free update also includes some new achievements, another chance to unlock the Steampunk Mr. Foster skin, the new “Hellride” map, and 5 new weapons that were originally part of the IJC community weapons pack mod. While the skins and seasonal achievements will only be available until the 23rd, the new map and weapons are permanent.

Red Orchestra 2 GOTY Edition Update Released

Posted on May 25, 2012 by Daniel Shannon

The Game of the Year Edition of Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad has just been released on Steam. As we reported previously, this free update includes numerous tweaks, in addition to a new map and two new gameplay modes. The new “Action” and “Classic” modes sound promising, because Red Orchestra 2’s vanilla gameplay falls somewhere in between fast paced shooters like the Call of Duty series and slower, more tactical shooters like the Arma series or the original Red Orchestra.

To commemorate this update, Red Orchestra 2 is free to play this weekend. Additionally, it is 75% off on Steam until Monday, which means that, if you fall in love with the game over the weekend, you can pick it up for $10. You can read its ginormous Change Log here. Read on for trailer.Read More
