Tripwire Offers Up a Teaser and Screens for KILLING FLOOR 2 Reveal
By Charles Webb on May 9, 2014
Hope you like ‘em bloody. Earlier today, developer Tripwire Interactive revealed the first teaser and screens from their upcoming horror FPS Killing Floor 2.
According to the press release, the sequel to 2009’s Killing Floor takes place just a month after the events of the first game, as Europe is plunged into a hell of crazed clones and other things trying to murder you (we’ve got the full synopsis below).
The first game, an Unreal Tournament mod, offered an Umbrella Corporation-ready scenario where an accident at a biotech firm (operating in the middle of London for some reason) leads to a wave of mutated clones escaping into the streets, doing what mutant clones gonna do.
Tripwire is promising new enemies in the sequel as well as six-player co-op, an updated perks system, and changes to the melee combat.
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 currently in development for the PC, although Tripwire has yet to announce a release date.
