Set against a Swiss cliff side, Volter Manor is full of Zeds, obviously, but there’s more to the update than just a new map: Item Hunts have returned to all currently available maps.

Two new characters have also been added for players who own the original Killing Floor: classic Briar and classic Masterson with each character’s respective voice actor returning.
