Yes, it is that time of year again. Time for the 4th running of our alternative holiday event - the Killing Floor Twisted Christmas. Just what you all need to take the edge off the endless rounds of parties, shopping and eating too much.

This year we are bringing you not 1, but 2 new maps, for free: "Hell" and "Forgotten". These were both created by one of our favorite community mappers (Swift_Brutal_Death) and are now available to everyone who owns the game. New achievements to go along with the maps, of course.

All your old favorites are back for Twisted Christmas 4 as well: all the Christmas specimens, along with another opportunity to unlock Baddest Santa, for those of you who haven't had the chance as well as the ability to unlock the ZED gun on the Moonbase.

For those Killing Floor players who have always wanted to get their hands on Harchier Spebbington as a playable character in KF, we have created a new version of him for you. The original Harchier was unique to all those people who pre-ordered The Ball - but this new version will be available to everyone who owns The Ball. So, if you want to finally add Harchier to your collection of playable characters, you just might want to watch out for The Ball going up on sale over the next few weeks of the holiday season!

As always, you only need to own Killing Floor to play all of this for free from now until 2 January, when the event ends. And, of course, the game, DLC and bundles are all on sale for the duration of the event!

Well, so many people have wanted their own Harchier Spebbington - the hero from The Ball - that we decided to do something about it for you! Everyone who pre-ordered The Ball back in the day got a free playable character character in Killing Floor - and that character will remain just for those people, a "genuine" Harchier Spebbington, as promised.

But now we are introducing a "new" Harchier Spebbington. Everyone who owns The Ball (pre-ordered or bought later) will get this "new" Harchier Spebbington free in their copy of Killing Floor. Those who pre-ordered will have both versions, of course. The "new" Harchier Spebbington will be making his appearance in Killing Floor closer to Christmas. More details (including screenshots) nearer the time.

To help out with this, The Ball is currently on a one day sale (18 Nov 2013 - to help all of those who want to be ready for the new character. AND there is a new stand-alone puzzle level being released shortly for The Ball. Free to everyone who owns The Ball, of course.

RO devs are MO devs, when we aren't working on Killing Mo. Every year for the last... year, Tripwire Interactive developers have been taking part in Movember, in aid of cancer research. We were introduced to this in 2012 and grew some really rank mustaches. This year, we're going Mo Pro - we hope. But we need your support! US gamers can contribute to team Tripwire or even join our team, via the Movember.US website.

This is for all those guys who want to stop doctors being so keen to stick their fingers up our arses, or grab our nuts and having us cough. Cancer research - prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health. You can find the Tripwire team on the US Movember website: Watch our Bro Mo's Grow!

For those outside the US, check out your local Movember websites -, and more!
