Tripwire Interactive releases Heavy Metal Content Pack for horror FPS Killing Floor

Haarlem, The Netherlands– 24 August 2009– Up and coming videogame publisher Iceberg Interactive today announced that Tripwire Interactive released a free Heavy Metal Content Pack for the hit co-op survival horror title, Killing Floor. This entirely free update brings 2 new weapons, a brand new map and a bunch of other new features to the game. The major ones:

• 2 new weapons: the AK-47 assault rifle beefs up the Commando Perk, with heavier hitting power in semi and full automatic fire modes. The Katana is a classic melee weapon that combines speed, reach and cutting power.

• A brand new map: KF-Foundry. This map is set in a Horzine manufacturing facility, tucked away in an old steel foundry. Multiple levels, strange machinery and molten metal all serve to create an eerie and frantic location to fight off the specimen hordes!

Further new features in this free update include:

• Added "On Fire" behavior to all Specimens. When a specimen burns a certain amount, they will now freak out and behave like a burning zed should, making the flamethrower more effective.

• Updated the flashlight to look and act in a more realistic fashion.

Tweaks in the update include:

• Added smoke to the Scrake's Chainsaw.

• Adjusted the spawning of the Patriarch boss character to prevent cases where the boss was spawning too close to players.

• Adjusted Bullpup's firing sound to have more bass.

• Adjusted "Crisp up" settings for some of the Specimens when on fire.

• Updated Mutator and Map White Lists (see Killing Floor forums for more details)

Minor bug fixes in the update are:

• Fixed Scrake's head glowing when decapitated.

• Fixed "The Long War", "The Hard War", and "The Completely Suicidal War" achievements not unlocking.

• Fixed known exploits on KF-Farm, KF-Manor, KF-Offices, and KF-WestLondon.

The update pack is free to everyone who owns the game and will update automatically. Iceberg Interactive released Killing Floor two weeks ago in the UK and Scandinavia and will be rolling out the game across the rest of Europe from September onwards.
