Tripwire explains why it's taking Rising Storm to Vietnam

Rising Storm 2

Back at the PC Gamer Weekender in London last weekend, Tripwire President John Gibson and Antimatter Games producer Jack Hackett took to Nvidia's stage to talk all about how Killing Floor 2 is progressing and what to expect from their upcoming shooter, Rising Storm 2: Vietnam. Skip to around three minutes in to bypass the introductory banter if you want to get right to it: Tripwire's origins, what's coming next for Killing Floor 2, and an extended talk about Rising Storm 2 (starts at 16:00).

Killing Floor 2 is currently in Early Access on Steam, (opens in new tab) while Rising Storm 2 is set to release "sometime later this year." At the end of the talk, we see the first Rising Storm 2 gameplay trailer, which you can check out separately here. Gibson also drops a little surprise: playable Zeds are coming to Killing Floor 2 "very soon."

Tyler grew up in Silicon Valley alongside Apple and Microsoft, playing games like Zork and Arkanoid on the early personal computers his parents brought home. He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, Bushido Blade (yeah, he had Bleem!), and all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now. In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK. In 2011, he joined PC Gamer, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. After work, he practices boxing and adds to his 1,200 hours in Rocket League.
