Feature: Update Night

Has Killing Floor 2 been improved by its updates?

Update Night is a fortnightly column in which Rich McCormick revisits games to find out whether they've been changed for better or worse. Gaming’s greatest gun is still Doom’s double-barrelled shotgun. We have to all say that, right? For my money, though, slots two, three, four — all the way down to about 15 in the list of Top However Many Shootiest Guns in Videogames —…

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…

Feature: Better dead than zed

Killing Floor 2 review

Killing Floor 2 [official site] is brought to us by the colour red, with the claustrophobic corridors and ruined streets of this multiplayer FPS painted in blood, viscera and the grisly remains of a thousand dead zombie mutants. It revels in gore and over-the-top, frenetic cartoon violence, encouraging the mayhem with an ear-pounding metal and industrial soundtrack. I feel like I should be rolling my…

Feature: From Argh to Zed

Hands On: Killing Floor 2

It has been a decade since the original Killing Floor mod for Unreal Tournament, which was released in much-improved standalone form in 2009. It's one of those games that quickly turns some people off: the visuals were a bit shonky, it was essentially built on repetition, and the less said about the Dick van Dyke voice-acting the better. But for devotees, Killing Floor is one…

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…

Crying, Walking, Stabbing, Talking Living Doll: Killing Floor

I do enjoy how Killing Floor's monsters look like people in Halloween costumes, the sort of thing one could make with a few hours and some household supplies. Given me a black bodysuit, some tights, cotton wool, pipe cleaners, socks, and wire coat hangers, and I'll make you a Crawler that'll win you pity in your office costume contest. Unsurprisingly, Killing Floor gets into Halloween…

Going Underground: Killing Floor’s Summer Update

Summer has arrived in London, and it's pretty glorious all right. But I say that as someone on the third floor with a nice south-facing window and a cat dozing in the sunlight. Parts of London are today, I say exaggerating only an awful lot, Hellish. You hop on the Central Line during rush hour tonight and you'll see. So where better to set a…

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…

Loadsa Muties: Killing Floor 2 Announced With More Gore

Killing Floor is a pleasantly solid co-op survival FPS, blessed with chunky-feeling guns and ridiculous English accents shouting daft Britishisms. It also cemented Tripwire Interactive as one of my favourite developers for banging it full of new monsters, levels, and special events for years after launch in a way that only Valve match nowadays. Now, delightfully, a sequel's coming. Imaginatively titled Killing Floor 2, it…

Tripping Up: Free Red Orchestra 2 And Killing Floor Things

Tripwire are having a busy weekend, with the announcement of Killing Floor's now-traditional Christmas spectacular, and a free weekend on Steam for Red Orchestra 2. This Christmas' Killing Floor event is IN SPAAAACE, which puts robots and Evil Santa on the moon (a free map with Christmas-themed baddies). Could anything be more festive? Watch the trailer below, and decide for yourself. R'ochestra meanwhile is free…

Mods And Monsters: Killing Floor Joins Steam Workshop

Killing Floor knows all about mods, having been one itself. They never tidy their rooms, leaving files scattered all over internets and hard drives alike, and trying to organise them is like trying to herd cats. The multiplayer horrorshow is gathering all its mods in one place, the increasingly active Steam Workshop, which should make keeping track of maps and modes much easier. Tripwire will…

Summertime And The Killin’ Is Easy: Killing Floor

Killing Floor is an acquired taste, or at least it was for me, like chugging down a bucket full of rust and blood, with accents so dodgy they'd taken on form and floated atop the grungy broth like cockney croutons. Where Left 4 Dead directs the players' progress, toying with them, Killing Floor has the player run around in circles, waggling their most succulent parts…

Freaky: Killing Floor’s Summer Sideshow

The guys at Tripwire have sent word that they're going to be doing another Killing Floor novelty map event, like they did for last Christmas, only this time it's a "Summer Sideshow". What that means is they've poured their mapping talents into creating a grotesque freakshow, complete with 'orrible circus variants of Killing Floor's hideous mutants, and new unlockables and achievements. You can check them…

GLaDOS Invades The Potato Sack

Portal 2, which appears next Tuesday (how did that sneak up on us so fast?!), continues sneaking its way into other games. I imagine using portals. There must have been a more imaginative way of my phrasing that. Almost every member of the Potato Sack has gained content relating to the cryptic influence of GlaDOS, including Killing Floor, The Ball, RUSH, Super Meat Boy, Toki…

Xmasclusive: Killing Floor Christmas Event!

Last night I got an exclusive sneak preview of the Christmas update to Killing Floor, in which the familiar range of nightmarish mutants are replaced with an even more disturbing group of gingerbread men, murderous elves, fiery snowmen, and super-powered death Santas. It's an impressive piece of work, and also a little strange, and comes with free stuff for TF2 players. More on these things,…

Fire It Up: Killing Floor Incendiary Pack

Tripwire has released the third free content pack for their co-op multiplayer zombie-shoot, Killing Floor, as well as a new 99p character pack, which is currently available at half price. 49p! That's a bag of crisps. The Incendiary pack brings a new weapon and four new maps, as well as upgrades for the Firebug perk. Bonanza! A video of some professional-sounding people completing the West…
