Calling all Zed Hunters!
Welcome to the Killing Floor Games Summer Tournament 2015!

What are the Killing Floor Games, you ask yourself?
The KFG is a long running community games event for Killing Floor, hence the “Killing Floor Games”.

]The KFG this time around consists of 2 distinct tournament categories:

Beginners Tournament (Hard with level 4 perks)
Veterans Tournament (Hell On Earth with level 6 perks)

So are you feeling lucky?

Do you think you have what it takes to beat the big boys in our Veterans Event?

Do you want to join in the fun but aren’t a big fan of getting your face stomped by a team of superior Zed Destroyers?

Do you have masochistic tendencies or simply delight in the gore and destruction all around you and revel in the misery of your fellow man?

Well, we’ve got something to suit everyone here at the KFG!

Need a Team?
Feeling blue because you’ve got nobody to gun down Zeds with? Head over to our steam page discussion and find yourself some buddies:

Like to be more involved?
We have a KFG steam group where we announce live-streams and keep people updated on events. If you are a player, spectator or just want to stay informed you can join our Steam group at:

Rock, Paper, Shotgun - (Rich Stanton)

It has been a decade since the original Killing Floor mod for Unreal Tournament, which was released in much-improved standalone form in 2009. It’s one of those games that quickly turns some people off: the visuals were a bit shonky, it was essentially built on repetition, and the less said about the Dick van Dyke voice-acting the better. But for devotees, Killing Floor is one of those games that stealthily racks up several hundred hours on Steam and swiftly becomes a fixture among like-minded mates, a precision blastathon where the repetition is the whole point.

You got better; the game got deadlier. And Killing Floor 2 [official site] is as straightforward a reload as you’re ever likely to see.>

Hey, it's me!

As luck would have it, I’ll be in Paris right when monstrous hordes are due to overrun the city. Tripwire Interactive have announced plans to release Killing Floor 2 [official site] onto Steam Early Access on April 21st, and I’ll be on the look out for – wait is that a lady with blue cyberhair in that screenshot – for myself?

The original was a barrel of murderfun, and I’m quite keen to return for more first-person face-shooting. Especially as one of the sequel’s big selling points is that faces (and other bodyparts) will explode in a squillion different gory ways.
