Haarlem, The Netherlands – 19 April 2012 –To celebrate crossing the threshold of 1 million copies sold earlier in 2012 for their first person co-op zombie shooter Killing Floor, developer Tripwire Interactive and its retail publishing partner Iceberg Interactive jointly announce the upcoming release of Killing Floor ‘Gold Edition’ (PC).
Killing Floor Gold Edition will include the base game, all DLC available to date and most importantly, a brand new female character which will also introduce female voice overs for players in the game, supported in English, German and French. The Killing Floor Gold Edition retail box, coming in a slipcase packaging with brand new cover, is available for pre-order purchase (shipping June 1 st) at the Iceberg Webshop ( www.iceberg-shop.com) for Europe and the Tripwire Webshop for North America and will appear on European retail shelves in June.
Erik Schreuder, CEO of Iceberg Interactive says: “Killing Floor has proven a very addictive and fun game that has done extremely well. I am proud to say we were very involved in the creation of this Gold Edition and are thrilled to be part of the Killing Floor milestones that were achieved over the past three years. We admire the way that Tripwire Interactive have kept on building the Killing Floor brand with fresh DLC and seasonal events over time. The Gold Edition is a tribute to that as it includes both all previously released DLC plus a completely new playable character unique to this edition.”
Alan Wilson, VP at Tripwire Interactive says: “We were thrilled to hit the 1 million copies sold milestone. This Gold Edition will appeal to both existing players, who will now have a unique and exclusive female in-game character and to new players, who can jump in to the game with the complete set of available DLC characters. For players who already own the game, the copy of the game and DLC included will, of course, be tradeable in Steam, so that they can give the base game to a friend to join them.”
