Killing Floor 2 Launches “Grim Treatments” Halloween Update
Enjoy an eerie new map, holiday-themed Zeds, a new objective mode, and limited-time cosmetics.
By Chris Morse
The latest update for Tripwire Interactive’s zombie survival game Killing Floor 2 is now live and this one is all about the spooky season. Titled Grim Treatments, this update’s main attraction is an all-new map called Ashwood Asylum, along with several other Halloween-themed goodies including a comeback for Zeds that are more than in tune with the season.
Additionally, this update comes paired with an all new Objective Mode: Nuked. In this mode, nuclear fallout sets in across the map as players must fight through Zeds to follow Dr. Ogada Buyu’s endeavor to rescue a boy trapped in the catastrophe. Much like other Objective Mode adventures, this one will feature specific goals and cutscenes to make it an all-around immersive experience.
Grim Treatments will also include your regular slate of new weapons (including paid DLC), balance changes, and seasonal cosmetics, which are only available for a limited time around the Halloween season. Watch the trailer above for a glimpse at everything new available in this update.
As mentioned, this free update for Killing Floor 2 is now rolling out for all major platforms. If it is not yet available on your console of choice, it should be before too long with the launch happening today.
