Tripwire Interactive has recently revealed the first themed event coming to their slow motion blood bath, Killing Floor 2.
Summer Sideshow will be bringing a new map, more than 50 new cosmetic items, new weaponry and some interesting carnival games.
The Summer Sideshow introduces a host of new content to KILLING FLOOR 2 and new ways to play during the one-month course of its event. The centerpiece of that new content is a new circus-themed map, complete with outrageous circus freak zeds that make scary clowns look like cute cuddly puppies. There will be a new set of specific objectives for this map, entitled “The Tragic Kingdom”, which upon completion will unlock the exclusive Sideshow Hazmat Suit (good for keeping clown blood-stained cotton candy from getting stuck to players). The Tragic Kingdom is a scary place, so players will have to make good use of the two new weapons included in the update: the HZ12 Shotgun is for the Support Perk only and the Centerfire Lever Action is primarily for Sharpshooter and Multi-Perk with Gunslinger.
Tripwire also announced that they will be making the game free for PC players this week to try out the latest update – thereafter the game will be 50% off.
The Summer Sideshow update will go live today (June 13th) for PC players and will release later in Summer for PS4 players. Check out the update’s trailer, below.
