You know I hate to admit it but every now and then Twitter comes in handy. Take today for instance: had I continued to resist signing up for Twitter (like I had for the longest time) I wouldn’t have known about Tripwire Interactive’s upcoming event for Killing Floor (one of my favorite games).
According to Tripwire’s tweet, the developer will be hosting a special Christmas themed event for its Horde Mode shooter. Dubbed “The Killing Floor Twisted Christmas” this special event will feature Christmas themed monsters, a new “Santa’s Evil Lair” map, thirteen new achievements and an unlockable “the Baddest Santa” character.
On top of all that Tripwire is also including some TF2 love in the event. “Everyone who owns both Killing Floor and Team Fortress 2 will now get a playable red or blue ‘The Pyro’ character from TF2 recreated in the Killing Floor art style! But wait there’s is more – everyone that owns TF2 and either already owns or purchases Killing Floor before the event ends will receive a special item in Team Fortress 2: Mr Fosters Gas mask and Tie equip-able on the Pyro!”
It is important to note that this event is only running from December 14 through January 4. After that, you won’t be able to unlock any of the new items.
I don’t know about you guys, but I absolutely love these kinds of events. The last one I can think of was the TF2 Halloween event, which saw the Yue brothers team up to farm for the special unloackable weapon. As soon as I read this story I had to call my brother and make plans to spend all holiday break blasting specimens.
Enough of my excitement though. What about you guys? Are there any other Killing Floor fans out there? If not, you guys should really do yourselves a favor and pick this game up. I’m sure if you wait until the Steam holiday sale you can get it for around $5.
