About this game
Developer: Tripwire Interactive
Content Rating: Mature
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.

Killing Floor 2 does the one thing it tries to do very well, and for the asking price it’s hard to fault the game for playing to a singular strength. Nailing a sense of style can be a struggle for some games. Killing Floor 2 though has that in spades, largely thanks to the safe premise. You and up to six buddies teaming up to get through waves of legally safe, if creatively bankrupt Zeds should be an easy enough sell on its own. If you can find some buddies to crush some skulls (and some beers) with while you blast some Metallica, Killing Floor 2 is going to treat you right.
The game hones in on the basic appeal of killing Zombies without the complications of reaching waypoints or setting up intricate fortifications. Yet Killing Floor 2's strongest asset is in its simple yet effective combat--Tripwire could substitute the Zeds for robots or Nazis and still have a solid shooter on its hands.
Killing Floor 2 had a tall order, being asked to recapture the attention of an audience that was either too jaded or too burnt out to give it a fair shake, all the while attempting to improve upon a beloved-yet-flawed low-budget title. Sporting a mostly-overhauled progression system, a built-from-the-ground-up skill system and improving on the grisly gore we've grown to adore, Killing Floor 2 has made a triumphant return. It will likely keep you engaged for dozens, if not hundreds, of hours of Zed-killing.
