Killing Floor 2 is out on Early Access today and having had our hands on it for the past week we can certainly say it’s definitely a game worth investing in for those after some gory, fast paced action taking on wave after wave of Zeds!

Given that I had not played the original game I made sure I watched some footage of the original before making my move on the new release today. I can safely say the game is a lot more detailed in all the best elements of the title. Running at medium level graphics the game looks brutal, with blood spatter everywhere along with various other Zed guts and fluids all around.

Turn this to top level (if your PC is better than mine at handling it) and you’ll see more detail in textures, environments and shadows that really make it look polished. With it heading to PS4 once fully developed it will certainly fit in well.

Gameplay wise, even in early access they have provided more than enough enjoyment by creating an online Hoard mode that is just a blast to play. Swarms of Zeds come at you from all angles with various different character models and, of course, ways to kill you. It’s a good job you earn good money by killing them and between rounds you get to a weapons vending machine and buy new equipment or upgrade what you have. Other bonus items are around the well-designed maps too so there is plenty here to enjoy.

The developers, Tripwire have for me made the correct call in getting the gameplay right and limiting the options of play for now, given its early access that will of course change. But don’t go on Killing Floor 2 expecting a huge variety right now, its hoard mode but it’s an awesome one and we’re very much enjoying our time on it.

Details

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 conclusion of 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.
