The Killing Floor Summer Sideshow event is back for a limited time and
starts right now!! Knowing just how much fun everyone has had with
Killing Floor special events, we could hardly let the Summer pass
without celebrating it in true Killing Floor style. So all your
favorite Summer Sideshow freaks are back, with the addition of a new
map, new achievements, new weapons all for free to anyone that owns the
game. We've also cooked up new playable DLC characters for you and
created our craziest trailer to date - think Killing Floor monster
truck rally commercial style!

The new free content starts with the map Hellride - a cute little
carnival ride through Heaven and Hell only the monsters on this ride
are real. The event also brings 5 new weapons for you, also free. For
all those of you who like to collect the playable characters, Steampunk
Mr Foster can now be unlocked again, but only for the duration of the
event. Also included is a brand new DLC pack of 4 playable characters -
the Urban Nightmare crew.

On top of that, we're introducing Harold Lott, a tribute to the whole
Loadsamoney generation and bastion of 1980s taste. Not only can you all
run around shouting "Money, money, money" in-game - with Harold's
special particle effect, you will be able to leave your own trail of
dosh all over the place!

The event runs from 5th July through 23rd July, so make the most of it!

With the success of the recent free weekend on Steam and lots of new players enjoying the Red Orchestra 2 Game of the Year Edition, we've decided to do a couple of things to make it even easier to get into the game. First, we have decided to cut the price in half to $19.99 (14.99 GBP/17.99 EUR/299 RUB) for the game. Second, we're giving everyone that owns Red Orchestra 2 a guest pass that they can hand off to a friend for them to check out the game free of charge.

This is the game that won PC Gamer's "Multiplayer FPS of the Year" and has recently been updated with new game modes, a new map, a wide range of gameplay refinements and performance improvements - all for free to everyone who owns the game. Tripwire Interactive is committed to supporting our games with free additional content for many years after initial release and Red Orchestra 2 is no exception to that rule! There is more content already in the works for the game, as well as a new add-on for the game: Rising Storm, that will bring the Pacific Theater alive for Red Orchestra 2 players.
