Hillbilly Horror Event:
The Killing Floor Halloween event is back for a limited time with all new Hillbillly themed monsters!

Event Details
  • Free for everyone that owns Killing Floor - auto downloaded through Steam.

  • All new level, Hillbillly Horror, surrounded by heaps of redneck trash you and your friends must defend yourselves from monstrous hillbillies in the North Georgia mountains.

  • Replaces all specimens with Hillbillly themed monsters

  • 15 all new achievements. Six of which are only available during the Hillbillly event

  • New official weapons: MKB42 assault rifle (a favorite of many heroes in the battle of Stalingrad), WWII Trenchgun with dragons breath incendiary rounds, Nail Gun with nails that can bounce around corners and nail the heads of zeds to the wall, Medic Nade that will heal teammates and poison zeds

  • 4 additional weapons as part of the first ever community weapon pack DLC: Scythe, Flare Gun wild west pistol, Thompson SMG, Saw Blade Crossbow with bouncing retrievable blades

  • “Grim Reaper” playable character unlockable for the duration of the Halloween 2012 event (To unlock players need to gain 6 Halloween 2012 achievements and 1 Hillbilly Horror map achievement)

Other Changes
  • Rebalanced the M99 - Slightly reduced damage, increased ammo price, reduced starting ammo amount, reduced ammo pickup amount

  • Hitting an already burning enemy with a fire based weapon no longer resets the culmulative burning damage. This results is more damage over time for fire weapons.

  • Added functionality for melee weapons to damage enemies in an arc in front of you. Does more damage closer to to the center of where you are looking, and less damage farther away (Used by the Claymore and Scythe)

  • Added a filter to the server browser for all game types

  • All non-whitelisted mutators are now greylisted (Cannot unlock achievements or perk levels)

  • Several small changes requested by the mod community


Bug Fixes

  • Fixed monsters severing more limbs than they had

  • Fixed a bug where crawlers can take burning damage indefinitely

  • Fixed a crash that could sometimes happen after burning damage

  • Fixed a case where Firebugs would not receive their intended fire resistance.

  • Fixed a case where Firebugs would not receive flame damage experience from husk gun projectile impacts.

  • Fixed a case where some melee weapons would not get blood decals

  • Fixed an exploit with medic weapon drops (on the MP7 and M7A3)

  • Fixed a bug with the Hunting Shotgun where the ammo count was not being properly kept

Deep South? No? Neither did we, until recently. Turns out, not very surprisingly, that it has been leaking a glowing green goop into the local lake where Bubba and his kin have been dynamiting catfish for generations. Bubba did try to explain to the local Horzine execs that this was not what Al Gore meant by a "green revolution", but all he got was a face full of buckshot for his troubles.

Killing Floor knows all about mods, having been one itself. They never tidy their rooms, leaving files scattered all over internets and hard drives alike, and trying to organise them is like trying to herd cats. The multiplayer horrorshow is gathering all its mods in one place, the increasingly active Steam Workshop, which should make keeping track of maps and modes much easier. Tripwire will also be adding Steam Workshop support to Red Orchestra 2, which is receiving a paid for expandomod by the name of Rising Storm. I’ve got a load of notes about that which I shall compile later this week. There are booby traps, flamethrowers and kamikaze bayonet stabbings, all of which I approve of in games though I frown at them in life.

title="Permanent Link to Killing Floor gets Steam Workshop support, Red Orchestra 2 Steam Workshop support incoming">Killing Floor







Excellent co-op kill-o-geddon Killing Floor now has Steam Workshop support, letting fans share maps, mods and weapons. The most popular mods include a version of Killing Floor that uses Doom 2 assets, a map set in hell, a version of classic Counter-Strike mod, Gun Game and a scythe. That's a pretty good cross-section of the sort of bonus extras we can expect from Killing Floor's active modding community.



Red Orchestra 2 will be getting Steam Workshop support soon as well. To celebrate, a Tripwire Steam bundle has been on sale all weekend at 66% off. There's still seven hours left on the deal, which includes Killing Floor (and all DLC character packs), Red Orchestra 2, Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45, The Ball and Dwarfs!?

Today in news we didn't post: new Remember Me screens, Killing Floor and Red Orchestra 2 are getting Steam Workshop integration (and they're on sale!), more Project Eternity details, and a Far Cry 3 video featuring voice over by Agent Huntley, who sort of sounds like Max Payne's less-clever cousin.





Killing Floor and Red Orchestra 2 are on sale, and both are on their way to Steam Workshop.

Project Eternity will be using the Unity Engine, more stretch goals coming on Monday.

The Far Cry 3 Official Island Survival Guide, ¿Comprende?

Oh yeah, there are some new Remember Me screens.

The RaiderZ open beta starts on October 24.

Horror game Anna has been released, launch trailer seems to have the wrong music.



Mark Hadley is making a follow-up to Slender, called Slender: The Arrival. Scurry away now.

UK artist Olly Moss is "disappointed" that Gearbox seems to have borrowed elements of his work in a piece of Borderlands 2 art.

Sanic The Heghog in Team Fortress 2. Enjoy.

For those of you who haven't noticed, we're rolling out Steam Workshop for Killing Floor today. You get the idea - and the best thing to do is just to go try it out, play with it: http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/browse?appid=1250 . For good measure, there is now also a Tripwire Interactive Bundle available. All our games from the beginning of (Tripwire) time. And a sale, so that we can all celebrate! Here: http://store.steampowered.com/sub/16835/

There is now an opt in beta for Killing Floor that will allow modders to upload their content to Steam Workshop before it is made available for all players.

To be a part of this modders will need to join the KF Workshop group found here: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/KFWorkshop

Further instructions on how to upload their content can be found in that group and the Wiki.

WARNING: THIS BUILD IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THE LIVE BUILD OF THE GAME. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO JOIN SERVERS.
