Tripwire Interactive’s Killing Floor 2 is now available on Steam Early Access for SG$29, allowing you and five other friends to paint cities with monster blood. Lots of monster blood.
There aren’t many games that come onto Early Access in such a polished state. Indeed, the only thing holding Killing Floor 2 back from having a proper launch is content. There are more perks and maps to come in the following months, but for now here’s what players will get:
- 3 non-linear maps: Burning Paris, Outpost, and Biotics Lab
- 4 perks: Berserker, Support, Commando, and Medic
- 27 weapons including makeshift hybrids
- 11 Zed types
- 7 playable characters
- 1 new boss character, Hans Volter
- SDK support for custom levels
There will be a bunch of free content updates up to and beyond launch.
Those who would like to spend more can consider the Digital Deluxe Edition. Priced at $39, it includes a copy of the original Killing Floor, digital copies of the artbook and soundtrack, the DJ Scully character, and a number of cosmetic items.
The developers are actively seeking feedback so hop on to the official forum to do just that.
Here are before-and-after images displaying the game’s persistent gore and lighting damage:
I’d hate to be the clean-up crew.
