I love a good weld. And Killing Floor features my favourite welding mechanics of all! The average Killing Floor player is probably more interested in slo-mo dismemberment and headshots, which also feature, but it's that's not really my bag. I like sealing doors, having a panic, then blowing up said door with a pile of grenades.
Tripwire Interactive have just announced that Killing Floor has sold a million copies. They've even managed to sell two million pieces of DLC. To celebrate, they're knocking 85 per cent discount as part of Steam's Midweek Madness sale. The discount applies to the vanilla version and the bundle that comes with a pile of skins for your characters.
Are you still playing Killing Floor? Everyone has nightmares about the Patriarch, right?
In celebration of passing several milestones like selling 1 million copies, having over 45 million hours of playtime and destroying over 500 million Zeds , save 85% on Killing Floor during this week's Midweek Madness!
Tripwire Interactive announced that Killing Floor has crossed a million sales.
In addition, almost 2 million downloadable content packs have been sold, and players have clocked 45 million hours in the game. Players have taken down 440 million zeds, including roughly 250K Christmas Santas. The zed massacre is still ongoing, being killed at a rate of roughly 20,000 per hour.
"As a truly independent outfit who have funded ourselves all the way, we are particularly proud of the achievement," the company wrote in a statement. "Our thanks go to all the developers of the Killing Floor mod and everyone on the team here at Tripwire Interactive, who's continued support has made the game such a huge success. We would also like to thank all the members of the community who have made maps and other add-ons for the game, with the Killing Floor SDK. And, most importantly, we offer our thanks to all of the fans and everyone who has bought the game over the past two years and helped make Killing Floor the cultural phenomenon that it is today."
The Killing Floor released in 2009, but has seen consistent support with new updates and promotions, including Summer Sideshow and Twisted Christmas events this past year.
To celebrate, and no doubt to sell even more copies, Tripwire is offering the game for a whopping 85% off through Steam as the digital retailer's "Midweek Madness" sale. That brings it down to $2.99 through February 16. The Killing Floor bundle, which includes various character packs, is down to $4.78 through the same period.
Killing Floor has just been updated to include the Twisted Christmas content!
Tripwire continues its long standing tradition of massive free content packs with the Twisted Christmas 2 Content Pack. The features an all new level, Ice Cave, as well as brand new Twisted Christmas music to get you in the holiday spirit. But wait - there's more! Santa is bringing even more gifts - the Winter Weapon Pack, with seven brand new weapons complete with new achievements, free to everyone who owns the game. Returning from last year's event we have Christmas themed specimens replacing all of the regular baddies, Santas Evil Lair, Christmas themed achievements and the chance for those who missed unlocking the special Baddest Santa character last year to grab him this time around.
The rather good co-op survival shooter, Killing Floor, will be free to play on Steam from this Thursday through Sunday, giving everyone a chance to try out the new goodies added by this year's Twisted Christmas event. I hope you enjoy nightmares about six foot tall gingerbread men with a taste for human flesh, because Killing Floor will throw hordes of them at your face on the new Ice Cave map.
The event will also give you the chance to shoot Christmas in the face with new weapons, including a vintage revolver, automatic shotgun, a huge sword and a powerful Husk cannon. Find out more on the official Twisted Christmas page (warning: contains large image of nightmarish gingerbread man). The event starts today, and will run until January 4.

The Tripwire guys do like a bit of seasonal celebration in their Killing Floor. This year they’re gifting us with “the Winter Weapon Pack, with seven brand new weapons complete with new achievements, free to everyone who owns the game” but there’s also an entirely new level, the Ice Cave, which you can check out for free, even if you do not own the game, thanks the free weekend on the Steam from Thursday 8th to Sunday 11th December. There’s other exciting new DLC, too, such as the Steampunk pack, which lets you dress like one of those digital distribution punks, I think. Hmm.
When the name of your game is Killing Floor and the premise is "kill everything that isn't you," a certain amount of holiday cheer is expected. Developer Tripwire Interactive has announced the return of its Twisted Christmas holiday event, which will add a new level, music, weapons, and achievements to the game for a limited time.
The content is free to all owners of the game will be available from December 7 through January 4. Killing Floor will also be free to play via Steam this weekend, beginning December 8 through December 11.
But, that's not all: "Returning from last year's event we have Christmas themed specimens replacing all of the regular baddies, Santaâs Evil Lair, Christmas themed achievements and the chance for those who missed unlocking the special Baddest Santa character last year to grab him this time around."
This year's event adds the level Ice Cave as well as seven brand new weapons. Another character DLC character pack is also in the works, entitled Steampunk 2, helping users "complete the set" of Steampunk-style characters introduced in previous DLC.

Killing Floor is available on Steam, Direct2Drive, and other digital distribution services.
With the scariest holiday on the calendar creeping near, a Hellish handful of vicious video ghouls (games) are hosting Halloween festivities. If you can't find the fishnet stockings needed to complete your Sexy Parking Meter costume, and will be staying, here's a few unspeakable ideas on how to amuse yourself this wicked weekend.
The map Viaduct has become the haunted Eyeaduct, where you'll face the twisted creature the Demoman's eye became, the Monoculus. Defeating it will grant rewards, while you can also find new and fantastic Hallowe'en costumes, buy chilling new Mann Store items, or get a cauldron of goodies just for playing.
Check the TF2 wiki for more, and have a peek at Eyeaduct courtesy of Youtube user Niichts:
