Once upon a time, we promised that we’d set aside some money from the digital sales of Ash Harding for a charitable cause – so here it is:
“Hot on the heels of military gaming charity Operation Supply Drop’s announcement of what should be the nation’s largest Veteran’s Day video gaming event, the “8-Bit Salute to Veterans”, Tripwire Interactive fires the first salvo as the first organization to step up pledge a major contribution in support of the November 10th event and the soldiers. The 8-Bit Salute to Veterans is a countrywide event occurring Saturday, November 10 th, involving a variety of organizations throwing parties in DC, LA, NYC, Dallas, and Chicago to raise donations for the charity and general awareness in gamers about Veteran’s Day.”
For those that don’t know, Operation Supply Drop is a charity run by CPT Steve “Shanghai Six” Machuga, sending care packages to troops deployed in hot zones around the world. Take a look at the website for the details. We felt that this would be a worthwhile target to keep our promise on!
As promised, Ash Harding is now available as Premium DLC, including her own voice pack, on Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/210931/. For all those of you who have been waiting patiently (or even, not so patiently), just head on over to the store page and you can pick her up.
In a few minutes, Killing Floor will be updating to remove the summer zeds. As always, the new map is here to stay.
Included with this update are several exploit fixes for the following maps:
KF-Bedlam, KF-Evil-SantasLair, KF-Offices, KF-BioticsLab, KF-Abusementpark
The summer zeds will await you until the next time the circus master opens the gates.
The Killing Floor Summer Sideshow event is back for a limited time and starts right now!! Knowing just how much fun everyone has had with Killing Floor special events, we could hardly let the Summer pass without celebrating it in true Killing Floor style. So all your favorite Summer Sideshow freaks are back, with the addition of a new map, new achievements, new weapons all for free to anyone that owns the game. We’ve also cooked up new playable DLC characters for you and created our craziest trailer to date – think Killing Floor monster truck rally commercial style!
The new free content starts with the map Hellride – a cute little carnival ride through Heaven and Hell only the monsters on this ride are real. The event also brings 5 new weapons for you, also free. For all those of you who like to collect the playable characters, Steampunk Mr Foster can now be unlocked again, but only for the duration of the event. Also included is a brand new DLC pack of 4 playable characters – the Urban Nightmare crew.
On top of that, we’re introducing Harold Lott, a tribute to the whole Loadsamoney generation and bastion of 1980s taste. Not only can you all run around shouting “Money, money, money” in-game – with Harold’s special particle effect, you will be able to leave your own trail of dosh all over the place!
The event runs from 5th July through 23rd July, so make the most of it!
We’ve got a new trailer for you, so check it out. And don’t forget the new web page at: http://www.
