Tripwire Interactive Announces
Killing Floor

Tripwire is proud to announce its
next title – Killing Floor – coming soon to Steam.

Tripwire Interactive is proud to
announce Killing Floor, due for release over Steam in the near future. Killing
Floor is a first-person co-op survival horror, set in and around London after a
mad scientist’s “specimens” have broken loose and gone on the rampage.

The game features:

  • Co-op game mode for up to six
    players obliterating multiple waves of specimens

  • Solo game mode for offline play

  • Watch those crucial and violent
    creature deaths in slomo “ZEDtime”, even in multiplayer

  • 9 different monster types trying
    to eat your face off, armed with everything from teeth and claws, through to
    chainsaws, chainguns and rocket-launchers

  • 12+ weapons for the players to
    chose from, ranging from knives and fire-axes up to pump shotguns, rifles and
    a flamethrower

  • Add in a welder, medical tools and
    body armor to help the players survive

  • Persistent Perks system, allowing
    players to convert their in-game achievements into permanent improvements to
    their character’s skills and abilities

  • Players choose which Perks to play
    with, so they can best balance out a co-op team to survive the horrors

  • Open, non-linear play areas:
    choose when and where to fight – or run; weld doors closed to try and direct
    the monster horde

  • Full support for Steamworks
    features, including Steam Achievements and Friends

  • Fully-configurable, allowing
    players to change things as simple as the difficulty level or number of
    creature waves, or go so far as to set up their own favorite waves of monsters

  • Includes SDK for the creation of
    new levels and mods
