Tripwire Interactive is cooling off underwater in the Tidal Terror update for their first-person shooter and co-op action title, Killing Floor 2. The summer 2022 update includes a new map and is now available. To celebrate the update’s release, Killing Floor 2 will be on sale across all platforms in various digital promotions starting in June and throughout the summer.
A new community map, Rig, is set on a massive oil platform lost in the middle of the vast ocean. This map can be played with the Survival, Weekly, and Endless game modes. Five new objectives are tied to Rig. Unique seasonal reward is available for completing the objectives.
Arsenal Ascent is a new cooperative game mode that starts as a knife fight. There are no weapon spawns and all players start with a knife. Quickly the fight escalates with each team racing against each other to rack up kills for weapon upgrades. Players will want to keep an eye out for fast-spawning ammo and armor pickups. Victory goes to the survivor of the final wave where the most powerful weapon is unlocked.
New cosmetics and weapons are available in the update. The Horzine Deep Sea Exploration Suit character outfit along with the Horzine Deep Sea Weapons skin pack are available and fit the Rig map theme. Additional weapon skin packs from the workshop are available such as Neon MK VIII, Classic Skin Pack, and Chameleon Weapon Skin Bundle Pack. Survivalist now have access to the Reducto Ray, Sentinel for Commando Class, HRG Crossboom for Demolitionist, and HRG Head Hunter for Sharpshooter.
