The gore obsessed maniacs over at Tripwire Interactive are pleased to announce the release of their newest content pack for their bloody disgusting co-op FPS series, Killing Floor 2, titled ‘The Descent’… oh, and did I mention it’s absolutely free?!

The first significant content update since launch, which promises to unleash a whole new world of horrific chaos upon players of KF2 with the addition of new maps, modes, achievements and weapons. New to the series is ‘The Descent’ maps random location swapping holdout sub-mode, which aims to keep players on their toes round after round by dropping them randomly around the map each wave… yay!

Besides the titular named battle location comes the community-made ‘Nuked’ map into the games official line-up, bringing the grand total of 15 unique arenas to try and survive the horrifying Zed hoards. With the inclusion of the scores of player-made maps with the above mentioned official ones, it’s pretty safe to say that there are more than enough locations to splatter Zed guts in for hours and hours of wholesome family fun.

So what good are some new battle grounds without some new toys to play around with? Coming along with today’s update are two new weapons… well, sort of new, one is the returning fan-favorite “Spitfire” revolver from the original Killing Floor, the second is the large magazine fueled Stoner 63a LMG. Looks like the Firebug perk just got a little more exciting.

In celebration of The Descent content pack, Tripwire Interactive will be featuring a Killing Floor 2 sale via Steam with a massive 50% off discount until March 27, as well as a Free Weekend event starting tomorrow, March 23 at 10:00AM PST/1:00PM EST.

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.

KILLING FLOOR 2 is developed by Tripwire Interactive and is published by Deep Silver and Iceberg Interactive for the PlayStation®4 Pro, PlayStation®4, and PC. This title has been rated M by the ESRB, PEGI 18, USK 18.
