Killing Floor 2 Gets Free Update, New Trailer and Screenshots Released

Killing Floor 2 got a new update today that brings in two new maps and two new weapons, one of which fans of the original Killing Floor will be pleased with.

Tripwire Interactive announced today that a new content update is currently available for Killing Floor 2. The new update, ‘Descent Content Pack’, brings two brand new maps as well as two brand new weapons. Alongside the announcement of the update, we also get a new trailer and screenshots, which can be seen below.

Here is a quick breakdown of the ‘Descent Content Pack’ for Killing Floor 2:

  • New Maps and Mode – the Descent, an all-new map featuring the new Holdout sub-mode in Survival that descends players to a new random location each wave, and Nuked, a community-made map that is now featured in the official lineup
  • New Weapons – The Spitfires, a fan-favorite from the original Killing Floor, and Stoner 63a LMG which is a light machine gun that has long sustained fire
  • New Trophy Update – a new Trophy update on PlayStation Store Network that contains new trophies for recently released maps

Tripwire Interactive has also given a full breakdown of the two new maps and weapons included in the update:

The Descent Content Pack features the namesake map, the Descent, which is an all-new type of map never seen in Killing Floor 2 before. The Descent map introduces the new Holdout sub-mode into Survival and will drop players into a new random battle location each wave, making them vulnerable to the horrific Zeds hoping to catch them off-guard. In addition, as a show of its commitment to their devoted and talented fan base, Tripwire has included the community-made Nuked map into its official line-up.

Additionally, the Descent Content Pack includes two brand-new weapons for players to gear up and fire off. Fans of the original Killing Floor will be excited to see the return of the Spitfires, which will see its induction back for single and dual flare gun revolvers for the Firebug perk. An additional weapon makes its introduction into the franchise, the Stoner 63a LMG is a light machine gun allowing for long sustained firepower.

Killing Floor is currently available for PC and PS4.

Additionally, the Steam version will also receive a 50% off discount starting Thursday, March 23 and ending on Monday, March 27th.
