‘Killing Floor 2’ Gets Annual Free Halloween Update with ‘Blood & Bonfires’

Developer and publisher Tripwire Interactive has announced that first-person shooter and co-op action title, “Killing Floor 2,” is set to receive its free annual Halloween update with “Blood & Bonfires.”

Releasing on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One family of devices, including the Xbox One X, and PC (via Steam and the Epic Games Store), the content update features a new map, mode, and weapons, as well as a host of quality-of-life improvements, making the art of mowing down Zeds with a group of friends better than ever.

The Blood and Bonfires update Halloween event will run from Oct. 13 – Nov. 10 and introduces a variety of new content and game updates, including Barmwich Town, a new map for Survival, Weekly, and Endless game modes that finds players exploring a mysterious medieval town, which has been infested with terrifying Zeds.

Barmwich Town will also contain several seasonal objectives, which earn players the Plague Doctor Backpack cosmetic once completed.

The update will also feature a new weekly game mode called “Primary Target.” In this mode, one player is chosen as the VIP, and all Zeds will target the VIP. If the VIP dies, the entire team is defeated. The VIP can’t heal themself but will start with extra health points, and the VIP can improve their damage output and resistance with low health points. The match lasts for seven waves, and a new VIP is chosen for each wave.

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.
