Tripwire Interactive have announced the official release of the first post-launch DLC, the Tropical Bash content pack for their award winning, blood soaked, sci-fi horror FPS masterpiece, Killing Floor 2.

So what exactly is included with this special Tropical Bash DLC you might ask? Well, an all-new vacation island getaway spot of course, just a lovely new lush tropical Zed Landing map to paint red with buckets of blood you’ll undoubtedly spill as you encounter Zed after Zed, both new and old.

Unlike its generic Gorefast Zed cousin, the new monstrous baddie, nick named the Gorefiend Zed, is an even more dangerous enemy that brings new challenges and danger along with its sick dual blade armament and devastatingly powerful attacks.

So, we got new maps, new achievements, new enemies, new emotes,  Duel  Perk weapons along with the new Bone Crusher weapon, and new dangers… oh, did I mention we have volcanos now?! Yes, a lovely active volcano, who doesn’t like a little extra splash of danger in their horror games… crazy people, that’s who.

The Killing Floor 2 official Tropical Bash DLC is now available for the low, low price of absolutely free, and in celebration, Tripwire has a special 33% off discount event happening on Steam until Monday, January 23rd… oh, PlayStation has a sale too… cool?

Official Press Release

ROSWELL, GA (January 19, 2017) – Tripwire Interactive today officially released the first, post-launch free content pack dubbed Tropical Bash, to their popular sci-fi horror FPS game, KILLING FLOOR 2, which is currently available for PC via Steam as well as the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®4 Pro computer entertainment systems. Following the successful launch of KILLING FLOOR 2 in November, Tripwire is excited to launch their first free update of the New Year. Known for their commitment to supporting their titles post-launch with continued content, Tripwire gives players a first taste of what’s to come with today’s Tropical Bash release.

The Tropical Bash Content Pack introduces an all-new island getaway where players will encounter a brand-new type of monstrous Zed, while avoiding the perils of the deadly jungle. The brand-new Gorefiend Zed, an even more dangerous brother to the Gorefast Zed, brings additional challenges for new and veteran players with its dual blades and powerful attacks. Players will have to dodge and weave the Gorefiend’s attacks through a brand-new map, Zed Landing, which will take them to a tropical lush island.  This island is also home to an active volcano, which may pose a greater danger than the Zeds that lurks in its dark jungles.  The last major addition comes in the form of the Bone Crusher, a devastating makeshift mace and shield for the Berserker perk.

Available now with the release of the Tropical Bash Content Pack, players will be able to further explore the horrific world of KILLING FLOOR 2 with brand new features including those listed below. A full detailed list of all content additions, bug fixes and tuning can be found on the Official KILLING FLOOR 2 Game Group on Steam.

The brand-new Tropical Bash Content Pack for KILLING FLOOR 2 includes the following:

  • New Map – Zed Landing, a lush tropical island with an active volcano and dynamic volcano effects
  • New Weapon – Hammer the point home to Zeds using the Bone Crusher, a devastating makeshift mace and shield for the Berserker perk
  • New Zed – The deadly, dual-bladed Gorefiend adds yet another threat for players to overcome
  • Dual Perk Weapons – Weapons can now belong to more than one perk, greatly increasing the weapon choices available for each perk
  • New Emotes – New emote animations that can be triggered during gameplay. All players receive one for free, with additional emotes gained from unlocking Emote Crates
