Rising Storm 2 celebrates Christmas with toy soldier battles

Wee plastic soldiers will wage war across a messy house this Christmas - and in Rising Storm 2: Vietnam. The 'realistic' multiplayer first-person shooter today launches its festive event with a pleasingly self-descriptive name, Toy Soldier Green Army Men Christmas Special. There are green toy army men, and it's Christmas, and it's special. The smooth soldiers will scamper along Hot Wheels tracks, have firefights in…

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…

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam adds multi-map Multiplayer Campaign mode

"You may have won the battle," cries an unusually eloquent trash-talker on the other team, "but you haven't won the war!" In Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, his anachronistic cussing-out may now actually be correct. A free update to the first-person shooter today added the new 'Multiplayer Campaign' mode, where 64 players fight across multiple maps and 11 years of the Vietnam War, with new factions…

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…

Maneater is Jaws: The Game, and we’re Jaws

After making teams of sharks fight teams of divers in multiplayer seafest Depth, creative director Alex Quick seems to have decided, you know what, stuff humans, sharks are way cooler; so his next game is solely about a giant shark eating everything in its path. Swimmers! Alligators! Fishermen! Whales! Sailors! Sunbathers! Developers Blindside Interactive and publishers Tripwire today announced Maneater, which is a--and I never…

The ARVN join Rising Storm 2: Vietnam’s jungle rumble

It seems only fitting that the announcement of a new playable faction in Antimatter/Tripwire's historical team-shooter Rising Storm 2: Vietnam is accompanied by a sobering statistic; Over a million Vietnamese served in the ARVN (Army of the Republic of Vietnam) over the course of the war, and over a quarter of them died. On May 29th, you'll get the chance to wade into battle as…

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam throws Australians into the fray

Crikey! Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, the unforgiving multiplayer shooter from the Red Orchestra devs, has gone down under for its first major update - and come back with an Australian fighting force that's equipped with new weapons and vehicles. The fighting still takes place in Vietnam - it's in the name, innit - but the Bushranger update also brings 3 new maps for the new…

Killing Floor: Incursion’s Steam launch slips back a week

Those VR pioneers lucky enough to own HTC hardware will have to exercise a little more patience this week. Originally due for release on the 7th, the Vive-friendly Steam release of VR spinoff Killing Floor: Incursion has slipped an extra week and is now set for release on Tuesday, November 14th, along with a major new update for the game bringing an endless horde-survival mode to…

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…

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: Tense, tactical, and rough

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam review

As soon as I peek out over the wall, bullets zip past my head and ricochet off the bricks around me. I duck back down, my screen blurring. I'm pinned down. That is, until the artillery comes down on the enemy trench, its screeches echoed by the cries of the Americans caught in the blasts. I pop my head back up to have a look…

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…

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam surges out

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam [official site] is now out, taking the serious shooting of the Red Orchestra spin-off into a new era and a new (old) war. From the jungle to city streets, players can recreate the dreadful invasion. Along with 64-player asymmetric action in the traditional Red Orchestra territory control mode, Rising Storm brings big battles with choppers and tunnels in 'Supremacy' mode and…

Oohrah! Rising Storm 2: Vietnam now in open beta

I played a lot of Rising Storm, the standalone multiplayer expansion to Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad and officially the 27th best FPS of all time. It got its gritty claws into me. So I'm pretty pumped for the sequel, Rising Storm 2: Vietnam [official site], which has now got a launch date of 30 May. Yep, that's just 10 days away. Oohrah! If you…

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…

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…

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…
