Hi, I’m the new game director at Tripwire Interactive on Killing Floor 2. I’ve worked closely on this project from the very beginning as the creative director, so I’m excited to be heading up Killing Floor 2 content updates for the foreseeable future. Enough about me though — let’s talk about this amazing update arriving just in time for the holidays on the Xbox One family of devices!
Killing Floor has always been known for its seasonal events which started years ago with the original Twisted Christmas update on PC back in 2010. Now with Killing Floor 2, we’re looking to take our annual Xmas-themed event to the next level with the release of the Krampus Christmas Seasonal Event!
Just like in year’s past we’ve added all-new holiday-themed Zeds complete with their own unique looks and new voices. You’ll also face off with a huge, nasty boss: Krampus! Please save Xmas and rid us of this terrible villain before he gives all the boys and girls coal… along with beating with his stick!
What would a Killing Floor 2 holiday be without a new weapon under the tree? For this update we’re excited to be adding the UMP submachine gun to the game for the SWAT perk. We also have a brand-new holiday map complete with its own demented Xmas soundtrack.
In the map you must infiltrate Krampus’ Lair and take him out once and for all. In case you weren’t aware, Krampus kidnapped all of Santa’s workers and changed them into the monstrosities that have only one mission: kill you and ruin Xmas! The map also has new objectives that, when completed, give you vault money and your very own pajamas!
We’ve also added 50 new limited time seasonal items that can only be obtained during this event as well as 100 new vault items to deck out your characters. We’ve had a blast putting this special holiday event together for Killing Floor 2 and hope that you enjoy it. The Krampus Christmas Seasonal Event is going on now and runs through to January 9. So, let’s get in the festive spirit and take back Xmas from Krampus!
