The map, Hellride, is a carnival ride through Heaven and Hell and the playable character, Steampunk Mr Foster, can now be unlocked again, but only for the duration of the event. Harold Lott, has also been introduced, who apparently runs around shouting “money, money, money” in-game, but also has a special particle effect which leaves a trail of cash all over the place.

  • Free for everyone that owns Killing Floor – auto downloaded through Steam
  • All new level – Hellride – experience heaven and hell as you follow the course of this doomed carnival ride
