Tripwire announces plans for new free content for Killing Floor
as upcoming paid DLC for the multiplayer zombie game. The announcement is
a batch of new screenshots
, and here's word:
20 July 2009, Roswell,
GA: Tripwire is happy to announce details for the upcoming “Heavy Metal” free
content pack for their hit co-op zombie shooter, Killing Floor. This first of
many free updates planned for Killing Floor adds an all-new map, new weapons and
new functionality and will be available to anyone that owns the game.
The new level, entitled “Foundry”, is set in an old iron works which the Horzine
Corporation has converted to support their top secret military projects. Exactly
what they have been up to here is a matter for conjecture – but before we can
send in investigators, your squad has to get in there and clean out the
infestation of specimens.
To assist in your task, there are now two new weapons. The first is an old
favorite of armed forces the world over: the AK-47. In our case, it has the
folding stock, for ease-of-use in close quarters. This one will fit in as a
heavier weapon for the Commando Perk and provide extra stopping power over the
base Bullpup. The second is a weapon that just about every special-forces
soldier in every movie seems to know intimately, for no good reason other than
personal interest: the Japanese Katana sword. Just where the squad got hold of
it is a mystery, but this piece of Samurai history is just so fitting, such a
thing of beauty and such a perfect melee weapon, that we aren’t going to ask too
In addition to this free update, Tripwire Interactive will be releasing our
first paid DLC character pack for Killing Floor very soon. This character pack
adds four new playable characters including a Horzine foundry worker and a
soldier in prototype Horzine body armor.
Killing Floor is available now on Steam (www.steampowered.com)
and will be in stores across the world shortly.
