Killing Floor: The Halloween Hillbilly Horrors Update!
It's that time of year! Halloween is fast approaching and things tend to get a little scary. Killing Floor, first released through Steam in 2009, is a first person shooter where players fight waves of zombie-like specimens which increase in difficulty until it concludes with a battle against a 'boss' specimen. You've got that right, it's pretty much Left 4 Dead with more bells and whistles, as well as a cult following. The game gets many event updates, and is already horror themed with references to many horror franchises hidden within so it's perfect for a Halloween update!
The event they will be holding is called 'Hillbilly Horrors,' and is running from today through to the 6th November. The update includes new achievements (with 6 only available through the event), maps, enemies and two new characters for your zombie killing style: The Grim Reaper and a cyborg chicken man. If you haven't picked the game up, you can get 75% off and 50% off all DLC for the duration of the event. In the meantime, enjoy the trailer, which is presented in the style of a classic horror exploitation film, with a Mystery Science Theater 3000 style twist at the end. Happy hunting!
