‘Tis the season to be gruesome! Developer and publisher Tripwire Interactive are spreading the holiday fear with Killing Floor 2: Christmas Crackdown. The annual holiday event that puts the slay in sleigh ride is here, bringing back themed Zeds, menus, cosmetics, and seasonal objectives, and Killing Floor 2: Christmas Crackdown is putting a cap in 2020 with content such as a new featured community map, Elysium, among more weapons and cosmetics.
Killing Floor 2: Christmas Crackdown brings community map, Elysium to the front lines of this season’s beatings. This map supports the challenging endless mode, as well as other modes like weekly and survival. Players can unwrap the new Frost Shotgun Axe (yes, a shotgun axe) and new HRG Weapon, the HRG Vampire, to light up Zeds. Killing Floor 2: Christmas Crackdown has popular cosmetic items added to the Christmas Ticket system and for sale, and more importantly, gives players a reason to equip Gary Busey’s Badass Santa.
This year, Killing Floor 2: Christmas Crackdown is available to even more players, coming after Killing Floor 2’s debut on the Epic Games Store as a free title in July along with the introduction of PC cross-play between Steam and Epic Games Store players. With over 11 million new Killing Floor 2 downloads since July, there’s never been a bigger, better or more brutal time to join the fun for 6-player co-op and 12-player VS battles!
The Killing Floor 2: Christmas Crackdown update is also part of Tripwire Interactive’s longtime commitment to release free seasonal content updates for players since the game first launched in 2016.
To celebrate the release of the update and the Holiday Season, Tripwire will be participating in a number of sales and promotions! Be sure to follow Tripwire’s social channels for information on special sales discounts coming in December for all formats!
In Killing Floor 2, players descend into continental Europe where the outbreak caused by Horzine Biotech’s failed experiment has quickly spread and gained unstoppable momentum, essentially paralyzing the European Union— Just one month after the events in the original KILLING FLOOR, the specimen clones are everywhere and civilization is in disarray; communications have failed, governments have collapsed, and military forces have been systematically eradicated. The people of Europe know survival and self-preservation too well and lucky survivors have gone into hiding.
Not all have given up hope though… A group of civilians and mercenaries have banded together to combat the outbreak and established privately funded operation bases across Europe. Upon tracking specimen clone outbreaks, players will descend into zed-laden hot zones and exterminate them.
Killing Floor 2 is developed and published by Tripwire Interactive and is published at retail by Deep Silver and Iceberg Interactive for the Xbox One, Xbox One X, PlayStation®4 Pro, PlayStation®4, and PC. This title has been rated M by the ESRB, PEGI 18, USK 18.
