Killing Floor 2’s Gary “Badass Santa” Busey is bad for your elf

Co-op zombie splatterfest Killing Floor 2 does lovely seasonal events. Sometimes it's a weird steampunk airship adventure, sometimes Santa is battling the Krampus to the death. For this festive Seasons Beatings update - live now - Santa has been ousted from his north pole workshop by his demonic nemesis, and is returning for some cold vengeance. Old Saint Nick is also voiced by Gary Busey…

Killing Floor 2 starts Gary Busey rehearsing for his Christmas event debut

We're barely out of October and Killing Floor 2 is jumping the queue to get its next holiday sweater on. In a bit of oddball casting that somehow makes sense, Tripwire's monster-mashing co-op shooter is adding a grizzled, eyepatched Santa to its playable characters, voiced by the eternally boggle-eyed Gary Busey. Players can opt in to the game's beta branch later today to try the…

Killing Floor 2’s summer event involves airships & clowns

For all its gore-drenched mayhem, I'm starting to think that Tripwire's co-op FPS Killing Floor 2 might not be the most serious of games. Maybe it's the ridiculous steampunk hats and vengeful zombie clowns that gave it away? Either way, the game just launched its big summer event, and it's bringing a lot of chunky new (and entirely free) content to the game, including a…

Killing Floor 2 launches Halloween Horror event

As you'd expect from a series about shooting monsters, mutants, and Einsteins, Killing Floor parties hard at Goth Christmas. The party starts today in Killing Floor 2 [official site] with the launch of its Halloween Horrors update, which adds a new map, extra weapons, and new(ish) enemy variants. And for people who enjoy dressing up, the update also brings Halloweenie cosmetic rewards and a way…

Killing Floor: Incursion brings zombie slaughter to VR

Chop a zombie's head off with an axe, grab the skull and chuck it at one of his ghoulish friends, all using your own, real-life hands. That's the kind of thing you can do in Killing Floor: Incursion [official site], which is out now and brings combat based on the excellent Killing Floor games to virtual reality. It's exclusive to the Rift right now and requires the Oculus Touch to…

Killing Floor 2 carnival event & free week start tomorrow

I still haven't spent more than a couple of hours with Killing Floor 2 [official site] but I'll be damned if I miss out on some of its sinister, sickening Summer Sideshow action. Tripwire make monsters that get under my skin - they'd probably use a rusty potato peeler - and I always enjoyed the cosmetic changes in the first game's seasonal events. Well, they're…

Killing Floor 2 update adds new maps and weapons

New maps, new weapons, and a new "sub-mode" have arrived in Killing Floor 2 [official site] with today's free content update, The Descent. That weapon ↑ up there? Dual flaregun revolvers. While the co-op wave survival FPS officially left early access and launched in November -- read Wot Fraser Brown Thought -- developers Tripwire Interactive have kept on adding bits, as they did with the…

Killing Floor 2 crawls out of early access to full launch

Tripwire Interactive's Killing Floor 2 [official site] has ended its time on Steam Early Access period and launched in full. The co-op wave survival horror FPS sold over one million copies during early access alone. Now those players, and all new ones, get to play with the new Survivalist character class thanks to the launch update. Also, there's a lot of Zeds running around, but…

Killing Floor: Incursion VR Announced For Oculus Touch

Killing Floor bills itself as "survival horror" but it's not really. Don't get me wrong, it and its sequel Killing Floor 2 are great wave survival FPSs - with their onslaught of Zeds, waves of chainsaw-wielding monstrosities, and the positively formidable Patriarch - but jump scares and the blind panic levied by running out of ammo doesn't exactly constitute horror, does it? Killing Floor: Incursion [official…

Uncooperative: Killing Floor 2 Adds PvP Versus Survival

Killing Floor 2 [official site] is solid co-op fun, even in its unfinished Early Access state, but its mutant horrors are a little simple-minded. I'm glad to see developers Tripwire add a little more challenge and a bit of rivalry by pitting humans against (mutated) humans. Yesterday's 'Revenge of the Zeds' update added the 6v6 Versus Survival mode, where one team steps into the clammy…

Killing Floor 2 Gets Workshop, Announces PvP Mode

There are some things in life from which you can never go back. Like having all the player characters in Killing Floor be anime girls. No, really. I am not ashamed. Killing Floor 2 [Official site] has just received an update, integrating Steam Workshop support, but it looks like their new microtransaction-based business model may interfere with my anime dream. Tripwire also announced a new…

Daddy’s Home: Killing Floor 2 Brings Back The Patriarch

Killing Floor 2 [official site] continues to roll on through Steam Early Access, and yesterday brought a hefty update that's mostly great and a wee bit divisive. Tripwire's co-op wave survival FPS now has a new class in the dual-wielding Gunslinger, a new final boss in the Patriarch returned from KF1, two new levels, new weapons, a new playable character, and oh, cosmetic items coming…

Killing Floor 2 Adding Microtransactions To Early Access

Killing Floor 2 [official site] is currently making its way through Early Access and by all accounts is a pretty good co-op zombie blaster. Developers Tripwire are now planning to add microtransactions to the game, letting players buy in-game items using real money. The initial items will be cosmetic, bought directly or by paying for keys to unlock randomly dropped item crates, though there are…

Killing Floor 2 Update Blasts Into Paris Catacombs

Two hundred miles of damp tunnels filled with skulls, bones, and secret cinemas sounds like a place you'd find me gaily rolling around clutching a bottle-sized glass of wine. And yet, whenever I've been in Paris, I've not visited its Catacombs. I know why: Deus Ex - its virtual Catacombs are such a chore that they've put me off the real deal. Maybe Killing Floor…

Killing Floor 2 Demonstrates PhysX Flex Tech Using Guts

Demos for new physics technologies usually look like Bodyform commercials, with gentle blue water sloshing around and lots of smooth rippling fabric. That's how Nvidia have shown their new unified particle-based physics tech PhysX Flex so far - lots of rubbery water balloons flopping about and leaking blue wet. Pssh, it won't look like that in the games we actually play. Killing Floor 2 [official…

Zut Alors! Killing Floor 2 Hits Steam Early Access

I'm reporting to you from Paris (that part is true) and can tell you that, as Killing Floor 2 [official site] predicts, civilization as I knew it is over. You may think that fighting monsters in the virtual streets of Paris in Tripwire's co-op wave survival FPS may help you prepare for this, now that it's out on Steam Early Access, but no, no it's…

Bientôt: Killing Floor 2 Due In Early Access This Month

As luck would have it, I'll be in Paris right when monstrous hordes are due to overrun the city. Tripwire Interactive have announced plans to release Killing Floor 2 [official site] onto Steam Early Access on April 21st, and I'll be on the look out for - wait is that a lady with blue cyberhair in that screenshot - for myself? The original was a…

SCHIING! BLAM BLAM Killing Floor 2’s Guns & Perks Video

Look, it's the last day of term and we're allowed to bring in whatever we want. Pip's batting an avocado about, John's cradling what appears to be a small hairless cat with opposable thumbs, Graham and Adam are kicking some kind of spherical egg between themselves, and me, I've brought in a video to watch. It's about zombies and monsters and big guns and cool…

Stridulating In The Night: Killing Floor 2’s Mutants

Dear readers, until today I had thought that the screaming and chattering noises spiders make in movies and video games were entirely fictional. I had intended to post a Killing Floor 2 trailer which introduces a few of its mutants, including the arachnoid Crawler, and say something clever about the "shared unnatural sonic vocabulary" of popular media. But, curious about the origins of this, I…
