Killing Floor: Free Stuff!

By Alec Meer on October 23rd, 2009.

Sometimes I feel like all we ever post about is zombie games

Modders-gone-kinda-pro Tripwire Interactive have just released a chunk of free DLC for their popular co-op zombie shooter, Killling Floor. Do you like stuff? Well, it’s got a bunch of stuff in it. More importantly, it’s a pleasing sign of ongoing and generous support for a game that seemed pretty barebones to mine eye upon release. Also, there’s currently a free weekend going on for it, so it’s your chance to take a gander without spending any of your Earthman pennies. Details below. And a question!

Wot I Think: Killing Floor

By Alec Meer on May 19th, 2009.

Tripwire Interactive, the good chaps behind the Red Orchestra series, offered up their brand new, standalone multiplayer shooter Killing Floor last week. Well, I say brand new, but it’s an embiggening of an old UT2004 mod. A storm of hype exploded around this co-op survival horror shooter in the run up to release, so now’s the time to judge if it deserved such loving treatment. Indie zombie face-splatting? Sounds about ideal. Or does it? Impressions below…

Killing Floor Is Alive

By Alec Meer on May 15th, 2009.

Zombies zombies zombies. Zombies zombies zombies. Zombies. This one could go huge, I suspect. It’s the next game from the makers of the evergreen Red Orchestra, and it’s stealing a little bit of long-term supporters Valve’s thunder by being a co-op zombie shooter. Cheeky! Left 4 Dead 1.5 it ain’t though, thanks to more arena-like playing areas, abilities beyond simple shooting and healing, and persistent player upgrades. It’s a lot more OTT and Doom-y than L4D, too.

Reportedly, preorders have been pretty high. Us gentlemen of the internet do so enjoy shooting zombies in the head, after all. It went live on Steam today for a reasonable price, and while RPS hasn’t been blessed with a review copy yet, we hope to have some sort of verdict very soon. Anyone else playing it yet? Whaddaya think?

Below the magic words of information protection, some video footage of this violent delight.

Pavedismemberment: Killing Floor Announced

By Kieron Gillen on March 27th, 2009.

This was announced earlier in the week, and normally we’d wait until there was more information before saying anything else, but Tripwire Interactive are apparently getting this co-op zombie game on Steam in the near future. So probably best to know what The Makers Of Red Orchestra Did Next as early as possible, I think. Co-op zombi… yeah, it does seem somewhat familiar, but Killing Floor, as John Gibson tells IGN, was originally a mod back in 2005. It seems to be six-players, more wave-based than the cinematic routes of Left 4 Dead and features some shambler zombies. Hurrah for slow moving freaks you can beat up. And before the inevitable John Walker gag, let’s skip to a relevant feature list from the press-release beneath the cut…
