Tripwire Interactive Releases Their First Free Content Pack of 2017 on PC, PS4™ Pro, and PS4™ with New Map, New Zed, and More
ROSWELL, GA (January 19, 2017) – Tripwire Interactive today officially released the first, post-launch free content pack dubbed Tropical Bash, to their popular sci-fi horror FPS game, KILLING FLOOR 2, which is currently available for PC via Steam as well as the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®4 Pro computer entertainment systems. Following the successful launch of KILLING FLOOR 2 in November, Tripwire is excited to launch their first free update of the New Year. Known for their commitment to supporting their titles post-launch with continued content, Tripwire gives players a first taste of what’s to come with today’s Tropical Bash release.
The Tropical Bash Content Pack introduces an all-new island getaway where players will encounter a brand-new type of monstrous Zed, while avoiding the perils of the deadly jungle. The brand-new Gorefiend Zed, an even more dangerous brother to the Gorefast Zed, brings additional challenges for new and veteran players with its dual blades and powerful attacks. Players will have to dodge and weave the Gorefiend’s attacks through a brand-new map, Zed Landing, which will take them to a tropical lush island. This island is also home to an active volcano, which may pose a greater danger than the Zeds that lurks in its dark jungles. The last major addition comes in the form of the Bone Crusher, a devastating makeshift mace and shield for the Berserker perk.
Available now with the release of the Tropical Bash Content Pack, players will be able to further explore the horrific world of KILLING FLOOR 2 with brand new features including those listed below. A full detailed list of all content additions, bug fixes and tuning can be found on the Official KILLING FLOOR 2 Game Group on Steam.
The brand-new Tropical Bash Content Pack for KILLING FLOOR 2 includes the following:
- New Map – Zed Landing, a lush tropical island with an active volcano and dynamic volcano effects
- New Weapon – Hammer the point home to Zeds using the Bone Crusher, a devastating makeshift mace and shield for the Berserker perk

In KILLING FLOOR 2, players descend into continental Europe where the outbreak caused by Horzine Biotech’s failed experiment has quickly spread and gained unstoppable momentum, essentially paralyzing the European Union— Just one month after the events in the original KILLING FLOOR, the specimen clones are everywhere and civilization is in disarray; communications have failed, governments have collapsed, and military forces have been systematically eradicated. The people of Europe know survival and self-preservation too well and lucky survivors have gone into hiding.
Not all have given up hope though… A group of civilians and mercenaries have banded together to combat the outbreak and established privately funded operation bases across Europe. Upon tracking specimen clone outbreaks, players will descend into zed-laden hot zones and exterminate them.
KILLING FLOOR 2 is developed by Tripwire Interactive and is published by Deep Silver and Iceberg Interactive for the PlayStation®4 Pro, PlayStation®4, and PC. This title has been rated M by the ESRB, PEGI 18, USK 18.
