Tripwire Interactive has revealed that their game, Killing Floor 2, will finally be leaving Early Access and heading to the PlayStation 4 and the PC this November.
Killing Floor 2 is a co-op horror FPS that originally released on Steam Early Access back in April of 2015. Since then, the game has continued to constantly grow and has even incorporated new enemies, maps and even a PvP mode.
Killing Floor 2 puts an emphasis on gore and to that point, the developers have even created what is knows as the M.E.A.T system (Massive Evisceration and Trauma). What this refers to is the 22 points of dismemberment that each enemy possesses on their body. as well as the 5 points on the head alone.

Some of the key features present in the final release of the game are:
Visceral Gore – KILLING FLOOR 2 ramps up the gore with a proprietary, high powered persistent blood system bringing new levels of fidelity to the genre. Players will send entrails, severed limbs, and blood flying as they wade through hordes of enemies. But they need to watch out! If caught, enemies will rip them, and their entire party limb from limb.
6 player co-op or solo play – A multitude of varied playable characters await for players to choose from as they enter the fray in online co-op mode or solo mode for those willing to brave the horrific specimens alone.
12 Player PvP Versus Survival Game Mode – Be the Zed! A 12 player PvP mode where two teams take turns playing Humans vs. Zeds in a pair of short matches. In the first match, one team plays Humans and the other Zeds until the humans all die during a single round or they beat the boss. For the second match the teams switch sides and when the battle is completed both teams receive a score based on their performance and the higher score wins!
Terrifying Zeds – New enemies and fan favorites from the original game are back with expanded and smarter artificial intelligence, dishing out powerful attacks, working as a group to weaken the player’s party and pushing the challenge level and fear factor to new levels.
Unique Blend Of Weaponry – From modern militaristic assault rifles, brutal improvised makeshift weapons, classic historical guns, and off the wall “Mad Scientist” weapons, KILLING FLOOR 2 has a unique blend of killing tools that will satisfy any gamer.
Expanded Perk System – Perks from the original game have been re-imagined with more added to the fold. All perks now progress with meaningful talent choices that amplify different play styles, giving players a progression path that is expansive and full of rewarding milestones.
Brutal Melee Combat – KILLING FLOOR 2 reinvents melee combat completely. Players now have control over the type of melee attacks they can perform, enabling them to deliver bone-breaking crippling attacks to Zeds.
Killing Floor 2 is slated for release on the 18th of November for the PlayStation 4 and PC, and will be available for $29.99.
