Killing Floor 2: Interstellar Insanity Launching on Multiple Platforms

Game developer and publisher Tripwire Interactive has recently announced that the first-person shooter and co-op action video game Killing Floor 2: Interstellar Insanity is launching today.

The esteemed FPS and co-op action title is finally going to the Moon! Interstellar Insanity is this year’s free summer update, which will include a new map, unique rewards, new bundles, astronaut cosmetics, and so much more content. It is now available today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store.

Killing Floor 2: Interstellar Insanity will mark the end of the Lockhart map trilogy with new survival map, Moonbase. Reached via the steam-powered rocket that lifted off at the end of the Steam Fortress map, Moonbase is set on a secret Horzine research outpost on the Moon. Killing Floor 2 players will battle on Moonbase in survival, weekly, and endless game modes, earning unique seasonal rewards along the way. Since the setting is Earth’s natural satellite haunted by zeds, Moonbase has low gravity, adding a little float to the fight.

There will be several new tools to use on the Moon. SWAT users can use the HRG Basiton, a LMG with an energy shield for bullet spray in space, and Support users can use their fists with the HRG Blast Brawlers, a gauntlet-style weapon. These HRG weapons are going to be free to use for all players. There are also upcoming DLCs and bundles that includes the FAMAS Masterkey for the Commando and Support perks too and the Thermite Bore for the Firebug perk.

There are also new cosmetics in astronaut-style, returning Summer Sideshow zeds, two new game modes called Scavenger and Arachnophobia, and more.

Tripwire Interactive is also joining the summer sales across all platforms to celebrate the release of the update and new season.

In Killing Floor 2, players descend into continental Europe where the outbreak caused by Horzine Biotech’s failed experiment has quickly spread and gained unstoppable momentum, essentially paralyzing the European Union— Just one month after the events in the original KILLING FLOOR, the specimen clones are everywhere and civilization is in disarray; communications have failed, governments have collapsed, and military forces have been systematically eradicated. The people of Europe know survival and self-preservation too well and lucky survivors have gone into hiding.

Not all have given up hope though… A group of civilians and mercenaries have banded together to combat the outbreak and established privately funded operation bases across Europe. Upon tracking specimen clone outbreaks, players will descend into zed-laden hot zones and exterminate them.

Killing Floor 2 is developed and published by Tripwire Interactive and is published at retail by Deep Silver and Iceberg Interactive for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
