Killing Floor 2’s Yuletide Horror Update Lets the Slay Bells Ring
Get into the holiday spirit with your favorite zombie shooter.
Zombie survival shooter Killing Floor 2 is bringing horror to the holidays with its latest seasonal event and content additions. This update, titled Yuletide Horror, brings with it a new map titled Sanitarium, a brand-new boss enemy called The Matriarch, and the return of Christmas-themed Zeds. The Matriarch is a horrible amalgamation of woman and machine, flesh stuck in a suit of steel and driven to madness in the pursuit of her evil father, The Patriarch.
The update will also include another new Objective Map: Biotics Lab. This continuing story will see our mercenaries assisting Dr. Ogada Buyu in demolishing the cloning mechanisms of the location in order to stop The Patriarch’s plans to clone a new legion of Zeds. Much like other Objective Mode adventures, this one will feature specific goals and cutscenes to make it an all-around immersive experience. Check out the launch trailer above for a preview.
Besides these maps, minor hotfixes, and new boss, four new weapons are also being made available. Two are free while the other two are new paid DLC. These include a powerful railgun for Medics, a freezing revolver for Gunslingers, a Mosin Nagant sniper rifle for Sharpshooters, and a Riot Shield/Glock 18C combo for SWAT players. Lastly, the aforementioned Christmas Zeds will also make their return this year.
The Yuletide Horror update rolled out earlier this week and should now be live on all major platforms. The event should run through the end of the year, so be sure to jump into the holiday cheer while you can. Stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for more gaming news and coverage ahead.
