TRIPWIRE INTERACTIVE AIMS FOR THE BULLS-EYE IN BRAND NEW KILLING FLOOR 2CONTENT PACK
The Highly Anticipated Sharpshooter Perk and More Leads the Brand New Update
ROSWELL, GA (June 13, 2016) – Revealed on-stage during the PC Gaming Show at E3 2016 in Los Angeles, California, Tripwire Interactive today officially released the latest content update pack to their co-op sci-fi horror FPS game, KILLING FLOOR 2, which is currently available for PC via Steam Early Access for $29.99 (US), ₤19.99 (UK) and €26.99 (EU). The brand new Bulls-Eye Content Pack includes the long-awaited Sharpshooter perk, a brand new female character, two new maps and an optimized expanded Versus Survival mode. The full Sharpshooter perk has been a long time favorite among fans of the original Killing Floor. Today’s update fully integrates the Sharpshooter perk into KILLING FLOOR 2, along with a multitude of deadly new weapons.
The Bulls-Eye Content Pack includes a brand new female character, Rae Higgins, who is hell-bent on taking out every Zed in sight. Zeds will be crawling in every corner of two brand new community-made maps, winners of the Grindhouse Mapping Contest earlier this year, which are now included into KILLING FLOOR 2 as official game maps: Hostile Grounds and Containment Station.
Zeds sought their revenge in April’s update as players were allowed to take control of the deadly creatures and now the Versus Survival mode has been updated and expanded with full revisions to offer a completely optimized experience in the unique mode.
Available now with the release of the Bulls-Eye Content Pack, players will be able to further explore the horrific world of KILLING FLOOR 2 with brand new features including those listed below.

Tripwire Interactive is committed to listening and engaging with their fans for feedback and encourages players to post their feedback in the Official KILLING FLOOR 2 Forums and be sure to join the Official KILLING FLOOR 2 Game Group on Steam. The purpose of the Steam Early Access period is to gather feedback from players, both experienced and new, in order to continue to hone and refine the gameplay balance to provide the best possible experience for the full official launch. Tripwire will iterate based on community feedback with goals that include adding new maps, monsters, perks, weapons, game types and more as leading up to the Full Release.
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 for the PC and is available now on Steam Early Access.
KILLING FLOOR 2 is also slated for release on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. This title has not yet been rated by the ESRB but Tripwire Interactive anticipates a rating of “M” for Mature.
