Killing Floor 2 is the upcoming Zombie shredder by Tripwire Interactive. Killing Floor 2 will be the goriest zombie muncher out this year! This Zombie land is unreal!

The game takes place in continental Europe in a time when a deadly outbreak has spread, gathering "unstoppable momentum" and "essentially paralyzing the European Union."

Set just a month after the events of the original Killing Floor, KF2 drops players into a world where society is in total disarray. Communications are down, governments have collapsed, and military forces are nowhere to be seen.

What is Killing Floor?

Killing Floor 2 is the long-awaited sequel to Tripwire Interactive’s multi-million selling Killing Floor, a co-op first person shooter that redefined ‘horde mode’ with unique gameplay, refreshing humor, and dozens of excellent tweaks and changes that have enabled Killing Floor to outplay and outlast all other contenders to their ‘best in genre’ crown.

With tens of thousands of players every day, five and a half years after release, it’s no wonder anticipation for Killing Floor 2 is reaching fever pitch as we fast approach the sequel’s 2015 Early Access release.

As you may guess by the name, Killing Floor 2 is the sequel to the original Killing Floor, which was actually originally released as an Unreal Tournament 2004 mod back in 2005. Tripwire Interactive was formed about 10 years ago and released the original Killing Floor on PC in 2009.

To get up to date

The original Killing Floor takes place in London, England. Horzine Biotech, a biotechnology company, is contracted to conduct experiments of a military nature involving mass cloning and genetic manipulation. Something goes horribly wrong during the process of the experimentations, and human subjects begin to exhibit grotesque mutations and disfigurement. They become increasingly hostile, and eventually overrun the internal security forces of the corporation.

Hours later, the first waves of the specimens break out onto the surface, disrupting a peace protest outside the well-known military contractor. Despite the best efforts of local police, the civilians are quickly overwhelmed and consumed by the seemingly endless supply of clones now streaming from the gaping maw of Horzine Biotech's headquarter. Having escaped their sterile prison, the creatures began to fan out to neighboring areas, devouring the helpless citizens of London while the Metropolitan Police bravely but fruitlessly attempt to stem the tide of mutated flesh now spreading across their city.

Desperate to contain the outbreak from reaching overseas as planned by the now mutated and cybernetic-enhanced scientist Dr. Kevin Clamely (which is now the Patriarch), the British government quickly begins to organize ragtag teams of surviving British Army soldiers and Special Branch police officers to fight back against the hordes of mutated "specimens" now running amok throughout the capital and its outskirts. The player takes the role of a member of one of these teams as they partake in a variety of missions in and around the city of London.
