Tripwire Interactive unveiled Killing Floor 2, an upcoming first person shooter follow-up to 2009′s multi-million unit selling Sci-Fi Horror, cooperative first-person shooter, Killing Floor.
“We’ve all had a huge amount of fun over the last 5 years with Killing Floor. The community has done so much with it, we’ve done so much to it, run so many special events – and we’ve learned so much,” said Alan Wilson, Vice President of Tripwire Interactive.
“Now we’re taking all of that – and cranking it to 11 for Killing Floor 2. It’s a lot of work, but it will be a blast!”
“In Killing Floor 2 players descend into continental Europe where the outbreak caused by Horzine Biotech’s failed experiment has quickly spread and gained unstoppable momentum, essentially paralyzing the European Union— Just one month after the events in the original Killing Floor, the specimen clones are everywhere and civilization is in disarray; communications have failed, governments have collapsed, and military forces have been systematically eradicated.
The people of Europe know survival and self-preservation too well and lucky survivors have gone into hiding. Not all have given up hope though… A group of civilians and mercenaries have banded together to combat the outbreak and established privately funded operation bases across Europe.
Upon tracking specimen clone outbreaks, players will descend into zed-laden hot zones and exterminate them.”
