Annual Killing Floor Holiday Update Is Here - With a Twist

By MrJenssen04-12-2014

It should come as no surprise now that Killing Floor's Holiday event is right around the corner (actually, it kind of already started). They've been doing it for years by now, after all. But this year is slightly different. There's the usual changes to the enemy skins changing to fit the festive spirit of the season, and the one new map added in this free DLC - the "Thrills and Chills Amusement Park". But some other changes have been made that signify this possibly being the very last X-Mas event developer Tripwire Interactive will be throwing for the game.

As the update changelog clearly details, server hosts can now change the skins on enemies at will. Want the Holiday, Summer or Halloween skins? Just change a line in the game's .ini file and you're done. Of course, if you don't want any of the special event-skins but rather like it vanilla, you can do that too. Secondly, all achievements for all special events, are now unlocked and achievable permanently.

There's also a contest going on, where you can win DLC codes for the game on Steam. To participate, all you need to do is win a match on the new map with some friends, record the endeavour, and you're one of the winners! More info on that can be found at the game's forums.

All this points towards Tripwire finally feeling ready to let the game go to rest in the halls of Gamehalla, where the awesome may live forever. It's no wonder either, seeing as Killing Floor 2 is looking so fine even in its current stage of development. It's evident that, come next Holiday, Killing Floor 2 will already be in the hands of the players. You can quote me on that.

When I first heard about Killing Floor, I was told it was similar to Left4Dead but wave survival rather then checkpoints. Because of this, and the poor graphics, I never thought it would be good. Needless to say, around Christmas 2011, I made the jump. Boy was I ever happy. I have never enjoyed a survival game so much and typically I shy away from zombie survival games. The game is incredibly addictive, challenging, and rewarding. Now it sits up top my Steam list with the most played hours (250 aprox). Game has done me a great service and I wish Tripwire the best of luck with Killing Floor 2. Hopefully others have had a similar experience with KF. Cheers
