Killing Floor expands with free maps and a new gun

Arena-based co-op zombie shooter Killing Floor was updated last night, with four new maps and a Mac 10 machine pistol with incendiary ammo. The game's update philosophy is that the gamey stuff, like weapons and maps, are free to all players. Only new character models, which are a purely aesthetic improvement, cost real money.

Team Fortress 2's Pyro comes to Killing Floor, Killing Floor's gas mask comes to Team Fortress 2

Christmas promotion madness. Arena-based co-op zombie shooter Killing Floor is adding a Pyro character for anyone who also owns TF2, and TF2 is adding a new gas mask for the Pyro for anyone who owns Killing Floor - or buys it before January the 4th. It's part of Killing Floor's Twisted Christmas festivities, which also add a Santa's Evil Lair map, a Baddest Santa character skin, and Christmas-themed zombies including undead reindeer. Killing Floor is an office favourite at PC Gamer, and this is an impressive amount of weaponised festive cheer. See their Christmas update page for the rest of the disgusting details.

Killing Floor sells a million. Tripwire celebrate by slicing the price

I love a good weld. And Killing Floor features my favourite welding mechanics of all! The average Killing Floor player is probably more interested in slo-mo dismemberment and headshots, which also feature, but it's that's not really my bag. I like sealing doors, having a panic, then blowing up said door with a pile of grenades. Tripwire Interactive have just announced that Killing Floor has sold a million copies. They've even managed to sell two million pieces of DLC. To celebrate, they're knocking 85 per cent discount as part of Steam's Midweek Madness sale. The discount applies to the vanilla version and the bundle that comes with a pile of skins for your characters. Are you still playing Killing Floor? Everyone has nightmares about the Patriarch, right?

Killing Floor: Aliens mod lets your friends hear you scream

We've now faced so many zombie apocalypses that it's amazing the shambling menace can elicit even the mildest increase in heartbeat. So while Killing Floor remains an enjoyable co-op FPS, any change to its morbid monsters is welcome. Especially when that change is in the form of in the form of H.R. Giger's face-smothering, acid-dripping, chest-bursting beasties.

Killing Floor's Twisted Christmas event is back with two new maps

Grab a cup of eggnog, a candy cane, some other Christmas clichés, and celebrate the holiday with developer Tripwire Interactive's fourth annual Killing Floor Twisted Christmas event. This year it brings us two new maps, "Hell" and "Forgotten," both from the mind of community mapper swift_brutal_death. That to me just screams holiday cheer, or maybe what we're all wishing for anyway as we untangle the Christmas lights.

Killing Floor goes South for the Hillbilly Horrors Halloween event

Halloween has invaded the grimly fun zombie co-op shooter, Killing Floor. Starting now and running until Nov 6, Tripwire's meaty shooter will get even meatier, with both free and paid for DLC dropping in their Hillbilly Horrors event. The free DLC delivers a new map, the residence of of the Wades, who make up the banjo-wielding new creatures that will hunt you down. But what will you use to kill them with? How about some community developed weapons?

Fight undead gingerbread on a moonbase in Killing Floor's new Twisted Christmas event

I love having new excuses to hop back into Killing Floor. Tripwire continues to sprinkle absurd themes (like Summer Sideshow, or Hillbilly Horrors in October) into its wave-based survival game, and each is a pleasant, casual context that tempers some of KF’s inherent, backpedaly hecticness. Going live sometime on Tuesday, December's special event is Twisted Christmas III: Evil Santa’s Moonbase. It features low gravity monster-killing, a dwarven battle axe, new character and weapon DLC, and an in-game scavenger hunt. Tripwire invited me to play the new content in advance, and I've shared some footage of our match inside this post.

Killing Floor gets Steam Workshop support, Red Orchestra 2 Steam Workshop support incoming

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.

Killing Floor Summer Sideshow event adds new monsters, map and guns, has crazy trailer

The Summer Sideshow event has taken over co-op survival horror Killing Floor, replacing all of your traditional hideous mutants with a freakshow of carnival themed monsters like an overenthusiastic sword eater and the Fleshclown, a monster with a talent for combining words that should never be together. You can find them and shoot them so hard they never come back on a new funfair level set among cardboard façades of heaven and hell. It's called Hellride, the perfect place to try out the five new weapons added by the update, which is free to all who own Killing Floor.

Killing Floor free on Steam this weekend, Twisted Christmas event adds new weapons

The rather good co-op survival shooter, Killing Floor, will be free to play on Steam from this Thursday through Sunday, giving everyone a chance to try out the new goodies added by this year's Twisted Christmas event. I hope you enjoy nightmares about six foot tall gingerbread men with a taste for human flesh, because Killing Floor will throw hordes of them at your face on the new Ice Cave map. The event will also give you the chance to shoot Christmas in the face with new weapons, including a vintage revolver, automatic shotgun, a huge sword and a powerful Husk cannon. Find out more on the official Twisted Christmas page (warning: contains large image of nightmarish gingerbread man). The event starts today, and will run until January 4.

Tripwire continues to create reasons to hop back into its four-year old co-op shooter. After bestowing a low-grav moon base map last Christmas, Killing Floor kicks off a new holiday event tomorrow, the Summer Sideshow Pier of Pain, bringing with it the first new mode since it released.

Rumoured Steam stats leak suggests the existence of Killing Floor 2, Arkham Origins Blackgate HD

Hmm... HMM... Steam users are reporting that, for a brief period, visiting the store's stats page sent them instead to the Shadow Steam: a secretive and underground society where developers engage in spectacularly tense battles of "Petroglyph Games Developer Test App". The list appeared to forego the public applications of the Steam database, instead reporting those marked as private. Kind of like the exact opposite of what it should be doing. Of course, things are back to normal now, making it difficult to prove the veracity of the list. If the community's claims are true, though, it would suggest the existence of unannounced games like Killing Floor 2, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate HD, Half Minute Hero 2, and Battleblock Theater.

The Killing Floor Summer Sideshow Event—free update brings new map, trailer

The zombiesmiths (okay, okay, technically they're experimented-on freaks) at Tripwire are releasing another free update for Killing Floor, their co-op survival-'em-up FPS. The Summer Sideshow Event, due June 30, will add new map The Abusement Park, more achievements, and an unlockable character skin. Additional skins for KF's seven classes will be available as a $1.99 DLC pack. Read more on the KF website. I'd like to extend these words to my mortal nemesis, cymbal monkey, who will have a horrific cameo in the update: your reign of percussive terror ends here.

Rust diary, part 2: "It's hard to kill a naked jumping man"

It's the dead of night and I'm in my cabin, which, at the moment, is essentially just a box. But I have plans for expansion. Big plans! Like adding a second box. Next to the main box. So it'll be two boxes. Anyway, I'm crafting with the spoils of my daytime scavenging and hunting. I've got ore simmering in the furnace, food cooking in the campfire, and I'm banging together some new building materials at my workbench. That's when I hear footsteps outside. They approach slowly, crunching through the grass, until they're right outside my cabin wall. Then they stop. Then... nothing.

Rust diary, part 3: "What happened was: I killed you"

Here's a tip: don't run around at night with a lit torch or you'll get shot. I know this because I once ran around at night with a lit torch and got shot. That's why, more recently, when I was alone and lost in the middle of the night, I only lit my torch for a second to take a quick look. Here's another tip: don't light your torch even for a second to take look around or you'll get shot. I did. For a second. And I got shot.

E3 2011: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 trailer shows diving, killing, and explosions

  This Modern Warfare 3 demo was shown at Microsoft's Kinect-heavy E3 conference (commence boo-hissing now, loyal PC brethren), but was one of the few games that avoided the horrible motion control monster who seemed to be wandering the floor, shoehorning Kinect support into games that didn't need them. Instead, Modern Warfare 3 looks fiercely traditional, reusing the series' trademark man-shooting, themes of US invasion, and even the same fonts as earlier titles. You'll find the second half of the demo below the cut.

The Ball gets commercial publish date

The Ball, an Unreal Tournament 3 mod that came second place in this year's Make Something Unreal competition, is being published by former winners Tripwire Interactive. It's a first person puzzler where you have a giant... ball. Shut up, it looks great.
