Killing Floor is a survival horror total conversion set in London, England. In a laboratory under the city, a series of human experiments in cloning and biological augmentation are being conducted by the employees of "Horizon". Horizon is a BioTech corporation formerly employed by the government to do the R&D on a top secret series of synthetic combat drugs which would enhance the effectiveness of soldiers in the field. Horizon's funding was cut, when their practices were deemed too immoral even for such a controversial project, but the research didn't stop. Funded by private money from the deep pockets of Horizon chairman and research scientist Kevin Clamely, tests continued in a more...private location. That was until something went wrong. There were reports that the lab had been comprimised; that the subjects were behaving abnormally...then, silence. Several days later, twisted shapes began to emerge from the confines of the lab into the city above.
Well god knows it's been a long time coming. To settle any obvious questions: - Yes, Killing Floor is still being developed. - No, there will not be a bugfix or incremental patch until the second release. - Yes I am still the only person working on the mod. - And Yes it will blow your bleepin'

Well god knows it's been a long time coming.
To settle any obvious questions:
- Yes, Killing Floor is still being developed.
- No, there will not be a bugfix or incremental patch until
the second release.
- Yes I am still the only person working on the mod.
- And Yes it will blow your bleepin' mind how much better it's gotten since 1.0.
I've overhauled or modified alot of the gameplay mechanics to move Killing Floor away from being just a mindless
Serious Sam style coop zombie blaster to being a really strategic, tense, tough-as-hell online team experience.
Let's begin with the HUD. The image should speak for itself.
There has also been alot of changes made to the zombies themselves. The Soldier zombie, to illustrate one example, now carries a shotgun and fires at you wildly (if you're at distance)... Yikes
I have also taken the time to enhance all of the Gore and Effects in KF....so when a grenade goes off nearby...you'll KNOW it!
But What's truly NEW you ask? New guns? new Gadgets? New Maps? In a word... (or 3 ) yes yes and yes.
Here are some of the new gadgets you guys get to use.
So there you have it folks, that's the majority of the new stuff that's been done thus far for the second release. The maps themselves are ALL getting huge makeovers and expanding in size. (in the case of KF-Manor the makeover is more like a full frontal lobotomy and a body transplant...but you'll see ;) )
Until next time my loyal minions! Visit the forums and rant, or tell your friends about the mod!
OH ! and I almost forgot.
KF got a feature in PCZone UK , and a very complimentory review as well! Check it out below (or just buy a december edition of PCZone if you live in the UK!)
