In my previous WWAUT post I mentioned that we are working on a number of items as we push towards our next major Red Orchestra 2 update. Today I want to focus on another upcoming item sure to please both fans of Red Orchestra 2 and Killing Floor.

As you probably know, we here at Tripwire are big fans of modding (many of us having gotten our start in the Make Something Unreal contest), and support it through the release of our SDK's, contests to promote content creation and more. The latest being the <a href="http://www.heroesofstalingrad.com/counterattack-map-making-competition/">Counterattack Mapping Contest</a> for Red Orchestra 2 with thousands of dollars up for grabs! With phase 1 done and judging getting underway, the custom mappers are already hard at work for their phase 2 entries.

But we aren't stopping there, the next big thing we are doing is integrating <a href="http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/">Steam Workshop</a> into both Killing Floor and Red Orchestra 2! This feature of Steam allows players to browse content created for our titles, find what they like and subscribe to it with the click of a button. This will keep them always up to date. You can read more on all it all works <a href="http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/workshopsubmitinfo">here</a>.

We look forward to the fans having an easier time finding the great community generated content, from maps, mutators, and total conversions.

Product Release - Valve
The Killing Floor: Ash Hardy Character Pack is Now Available on Steam!

After years earning the grudging respect of her male peers, Harding finally made captain - just as the Horzine nightmare erupted to destroy her ambitions, drowning Harding's elite military unit in blood and madness. Now Ash is a one-woman army driven by the need to push back the darkness and tear evil a new one.

Plus, the Killing Floor 6 Pack is Now Available!

In a few minutes, Killing Floor will be updating to remove the summer zeds. As always, the new map is here to stay.

Included with this update are several map exploit fixes for the following maps:

KF-Bedlam, KF-Evil-SantasLair, KF-Offices, KF-BioticsLab, KF-Abusementpark

The summer zeds will await you until the next time the circus master opens the gates.

PCG Podcast


Apologies for the delay in getting this week's podcast to you, listeners. We had a technical issue whereby Chris' voice was very very quiet. It took a long time before we realised what was wrong: we knew he was trying to tell us something, but, well, we had no idea what it was.

This week Chris, Rich and Tom Senior gather to discuss Dota 2, Dragon Age 2, Spec Ops: The Line, The Walking Dead games, Killing Floor, Endless Space and more, including the Steam charts and your questions from Twitter.

Tom would like to offer his sincere apologies to oboists everywhere. He doesn't mean a word he said. Really.

Download the MP3, subscribe, or find our older podcasts here.

Show notes:

Tom Francis goes hands-on with Dishonored.
Chris' Rome 2 preview and video interviews.
Our Minecraft server.
The PCG Planetside 2 forums.
Gummy vitamins.

Killing Floor is an acquired taste, or at least it was for me, like chugging down a bucket full of rust and blood, with accents so dodgy they’d taken on form and floated atop the grungy broth like cockney croutons. Where Left 4 Dead directs the players’ progress, toying with them, Killing Floor has the player run around in circles, waggling their most succulent parts at the mutants and freaks, encouraging pursuit. Crowd control, herding, elimination; it’s a butchery simulation with cattle that bite back. This summer’s special event, the Summer Slideshow 2012, adds new levels, enemies and guns. The trailer would have given me nightmares when I was a boy.
