This event is neither a monster mash nor a graveyard smash.

By L.B. Lubomski

October is here and Halloween season is in full effect. This extends to multiplayer first-person survival shooter Killing Floor 2, which is fully embracing all things spooky in their latest free game update. Dubbed the Halloween Horrors: Monster Masquerade, the new update features a new map, new weapons, and Halloween-themed makeovers for all of the enemies.

Also in the works is a fun crossover with vehicular combat racing game Road Redemption, which will see Dr. Hans Volter and DJ Skully as racers in Road Redemption, while Killing Floor 2 players will get a baseball bat known as the Road Redeemer. This unique cross-over content will be available for all Steam players who own both games with the same items coming to console players later this year.

Tripwire Interactive is proud to announce the official launch of the largest update of 2018 for KILLING FLOOR 2 with today’s release of the KILLING FLOOR 2 – HALLOWEEN HORRORS: MONSTER MASQUERADE update. Launching today for PlayStation®4, PlayStation®4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X, and PC via Steam, today’s free content update introduces the brand-new Monster Ball map, full Halloween makeovers for all zeds and bosses with all-new models, effects, and sounds.
