We’re barely out of October and Killing Floor 2 is leaping the queue to get its subsequent vacation sweater on. In a little bit of oddball casting that one way or the other is sensible, Tripwire’s monster-mashing co-op shooter is including a grizzled, eyepatched Santa to its playable characters, voiced by the eternally boggle-eyed Gary Busey. Players can decide in to the game’s beta department later at the moment to strive the upcoming Season’s Beatings event that includes a story-based romp by means of Santa’s Workshop, a shopping center map, three new weapons and Busey himself lurking in a video beneath.
Killing Floor 2 has by no means been particularly refined, however the three weapons launched on this replace are particularly simple. There’s a fireplace axe melee weapon and a rotary grenade launcher (each getting back from the unique Killing Floor), plus a Tommy Gun for individuals who prefer to lean heavy on the set off. The occasion map is Santa’s Workshop, that includes a military of elves who’ve allied themselves with the Krampus to overthrow the jolly chimney-diver. The second map – Shopping Spree – is one other fan-made Workshop map promoted to full-time responsibility, and likewise holiday-themed.
While Killing Floor 2 nonetheless incorporates loot crates to dispense non-obligatory beauty goodies, they’re turning into extra beneficiant on this beta replace, too – now not will they include duplicate gadgets, and gamers will be capable of purchase particular crates. Not an entire repair (simply promote your costume gubbins instantly), however extra moral. Once it goes stay on Killing Floor 2’s predominant department, all monsters will keep in Christmas costume for the rest of the vacations. Unfortunate for individuals who would reasonably kill generic zombies, however nice for those who like the concept of gore-splattered Christmas silliness.
As an apart, this isn’t Busey’s solely bizarre look in games not too long ago. In Hitman, he performed as himself – possibly the loudest and least elusive of all elusive targets.
