New Epic Games Store Freebies Include The Killing Floor 2

The Killing Floor 2 is now available on the Epic Games Store, and in celebration, Tripwire Interactive's first-person shooter is being offered for free. This is now available alongside the other two giveaways previously announced for this week: Lifeless Planet and The Escapists 2, the latter of which is now available for free after a bit of a delay. Any or all three of these games is yours to keep if you grab your copies over the next seven days. After that the new giveaway will take effect, which they reveal will be Torchlight II. Here's word on this week's three freebies:
In KILLING FLOOR 2, players descend into continental Europe after it has been overrun by horrific, murderous clones called Zeds that were created by rogue elements of the Horzine Corporation. 6-player Co-Op & 12-player VS Zed-slaughtering mayhem.

Lifeless Planet: PREMIER EDITION - While seeking life on a distant planet, an astronaut discovers an abandoned Russian town. He suspects his mission is a hoax until a mysterious young woman saves him from a strange and deadly phenomenon...

The Escapists 2: Risk it all to breakout from the toughest prisons in the world. Explore the biggest prisons yet! You’ll have to live by the prison rules, attending roll call, doing prison jobs and following strict routines; all the while engineering your bid for freedom!

But , you may say , epic is making us all test their stuff when it's not finished !!? Yes. Because that's one of the best ways of actually testing it properly. . It's perfectly voluntary, perfectly safe ( unlike a half-finished car) and you get free games every week, and it breaks steam monopoly. Again I ask , what's the catch?

My MP family and friends all use Discord these days for in-game chat.

I just played and finished it in late January when I had free month trial with Origin service. Its multiplayer was lacking. I wonder if Epic will fix it.

Yo, Ant. You get a new PC yet?

Agreed.

How would you prefer they make their money?

Free gameplay content updates (maps, characters, bosses, weapons) plus events and constant bug/tech updates.... but pay for silly cosmetics.
Or: Everyone can look silly.... but you have to pay for the gameplay content?

The latter segments the user-base, devalues character customization, and creates a constant "pay-to-play" economy... it's a lose-lose-lose situation.
The former keeps all users together (newbs to veterans), and for those who want to stand out, can shine with silly gear.

Yup, same as Path of Exile. The right way to do it.

A game that goes EGS exclusive won't support those Steam-only features, right? E.g., remote play, remote play anywhere, gifting, controller remapping, family sharing, family view account limits, mod workshop hosting, online casting.

"some" features? You mean "most".

> and it's light-years ahead of what steam was the first 6-7 years

That is the same equivalency as saying my 1970 pinto is light-years ahead of the model T... in 2020.

The game is good mechanically and visually and definitely one of the best horde games. But the microtransaction skins and all sorts of stuff like that turned me off. The game didn't always have these.

I recommend KF2 It has the MOST satisfying zombie fragging in an FPS out there...

Wanna use authentic firearms with genuine reload animations?
Or lob bundles of TNT into hordes to see them fly?
How about melee limbs off with a katana or battleaxe? Or do you prefer a buzzsaw?
Maybe you just want to light everything on fire and watch'em all burn!
And if you like to heal, every team needs a medic, and you just right-click to shoot healing darts while left click is your primary.

Is that even a real thing, who is saying anything about giving a shit about what's on a pathetic store like epic?

Not here, but on the comments under the release notes on Steam.

If people have skipped Killing Floor 2 so far, I can highly recommend it. I've played it on and off for... 2 years now? Greatest of the horde mode shooters, even if they've started to add far too many paid DLC weapons and emphasis on cosmetics. It has gotten a little bloated though, last time I installed it from Steam it was 80-90gigs or so.
