Tripwire Interactive will release a sequel to first-person shooter Killing Floor for Windows PC and Valve’s SteamOS via Steam Early Access. Killing Floor 2 will be a bloody game similar to the original, and a co-op first-person shooter. The original Killing Floor was released as an Unreal Tournament 2004 mod in 2005, while a full retail release followed in 2009.
Tripwire creative director and senior animator Bill Munk, said of Killing Floor 2 “You see something that looks messed up. And you kill it. You get money for doing it and you buy better weapons. Rinse and repeat. The more enjoyable that small little loop is, the more successful the game is.”
The gore and animation systems will be extremely open to modders. Limbs and damage types can easily be assigned different effects. Zeds could spew flowers and rainbows instead of blood. Modders will be able to assign zeds new attacks without writing any code. Even Tripwire’s lighting system, which is they built themselves and integrated into Unreal Engine 3, will be easy to animate.
