Roswell, GA – Tripwire announced today that their co-op action-horror title for the PC, Killing Floor, is set to receive both new, free content known as “Heavy Metal,” and a 10% discount for a special week-long promotion. Similar to the previously released DLC, the free add-on will land players with two 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”) and a new gameplay 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”).

In addition to the new content, various gameplay tweaks and fixes come with the upgrade, the full extent of which can be viewed below:

Gameplay Tweaks and Fixes 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.

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)

And, of course, some bug fixes:

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-West London.
