Killing Floor Summer Sideshow Event!

Given just how much fun we all had with the Killing Floor Christmas Event, we thought we'd have some more fun for the Summer! For inspiration this time, we've gone looking at those wonderful summer carnivals and funfairs that we used to love as little kids. But of course, this is Killing Floor, so it isn't happy funny for little kiddies - it is killing fun for big kids!

We've got a new map for you, for free - the Abusement Park. Populated with sideshow freaks from the realms of someone's fetid nightmare. More new achievements. A new DLC character pack - some of our favorite Perks, gone all Steampunk. And another unlockable character: our old friend Mr Foster "Steampunk'd".

The event runs from 30th June through 22nd 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:
