PTS Server Update (Like A Boss)!

Well, it looks like HiRez has been busier than we thought! In addition to working on new maps for PvP, some major map changes have been made by HiRezKate in order to improve balance.

Note that not all of these changes will make it to the live patch, but it is still good to see work being done!

Also, Kate has officially named the 1.4 patch "Like a Boss". Win.

A Twisted Christmas

Tripwire has done it again folks! Beginning on December 14th and going through January 4th, Killing Floor will be hosting a very special Twisted Christmas event.

This patch will include a ton of new goodies, including:
  • Christmas Themed ZEDs
  • Free for Killing Floor owners
  • New Christmas Achievements
  • New "Hell on Earth" difficulty mode
  • New Level - Santa's Evil Lair*
  • New Purchasable DLC character pack
  • Special TF2 hat if you also own Killing Floor
  • Unlockable "Baddest Santa" Character
  • Unlockable TF2 Pyro character for Killing Floor if you also own TF2

Why does Tripwire care so much for its fans? I'm not sure, but I'll definitely continue supporting Tripwire. Now if only Activision, EA, or Insert Big Game Company Here, would do the same...

*This level WILL stick around after the event.

Test Server Christmas and Jetpack Screenshots

Enjoy these screenshots of the possible Christmas flair and new Crescent Jetpacks!

As per the current pre-patch notes, these Jetpacks will drop randomly in Mercenary PvP. Also, Elite weapons now drop from PvP!

Not sure where the Christmas flair will drop or when it's coming.

Test Server Screenshots (for upcoming patch 1.39)

Enjoy these screenshots of the new maps! I apologize for the quality, I didn't realize my graphics were on low until after I finished.

Anyways, HiRez really outdid themselves this time! Their map designer seems to be quite talented.

Special thanks to Tantric for showing me around!

The Volcano, Toxic, and Temple maps are for Mercenary PvP. The Ice map is a 4v4 map.
