Posted on November 17, 2016

Title:                              Killing Floor 2
Developer:                 Tripwire Interactive
Release Date:          November 18
Platforms:                  PC, Linux, PS4

Tripwire Interactive’s flagship zombie shooter Killing Floor has returned for its second iteration. With the Zed infestation worse then ever before it will be up to you to take to the slaughtering grounds (or the killing floor) and cull the increasing zombie population.

Taking place in continental Europe, Killing Floor 2 is a cooperative FPS gore-fest that has players team up and slaughter hordes of aggressive zombies. The initial game released  back in 2009 and quickly became a very successful and much loved game. With 7 years passing and a big fan base accumulating and demanding more, there is no better time to release a sequel.

The game can be played cooperatively with up to 6 players and features team based combat with mild strategy elements. Players can hold up in certain areas, weld doors closed and use their unique weaponry and class abilities to aid one another on their Zed slaughtering journey.

Killing Floor 2 also introduces a PvP mode that sees 6 mercenaries face off against 6 player controlled Zeds. Pair that change with the updated visuals, controls, updated perk system and a plethora of new weaponry and zombie variety and you have a pretty solid sequel. The game has been out in early access since late April and I’ve had a chance to give it a good whirl. I could explain to you why this crazy game is a whole lot of fun and should totally be on your radar, or you could just check out the chaos in this trailer.

Releasing on November 18 you won’t have to wait long to massacre some shambling undead. PlayStation gamers should also be excited because the game will be releasing on the PS4 alongside PC and Linux.

Are you ready eviscerate some Zeds into a fountain of giblets and gore?
