Killing Floor 2 kicks off another grand Summer Sideshow event

Killing Floor 2’s latest summer event takes you to a new airship map high above solid ground.

By this point, it’s clear Tripwire Interactive really enjoys these Killing Floor seasonal events. And you can’t really blame them: these limited-time outings offer new maps, Zed types, playable characters, and a healthy dose of pitch-black humor.

One of the most popular versions – the Summer Sideshow –
has returned for all Killing Floor 2 platforms
. And if you enjoyed previous summer events, I suspect you’ll really get a kick out of this one.

Summer Sideshow: Treacherous Skies is a direct sequel to 2013’s Steamland map. This time, players face hordes of enemies aboard a massive flying airship, and must complete objectives to safely reach the Ringmaster’s island home. Not only will you face circus-themed Zeds, but deadly robots that continue fighting once their heads are destroyed.

But that’s not the only map. Killing Floor 2 also introduces Endless Lockdown, a fan-made community map that has been officially added to the library. Players also have access to Mrs. Foster, a new playable DLC character voiced by Claudia Black.

On the weapons front, Treacherous Skies introduces a new weapon upgrade system. This lets you take classic weapons from previous updates and enhance them to avoid late-game feature creep. Killing Floor 2 players can also use a Prestige system to reset leveled perks for an exclusive weapon skin and other rewards.

If you just want new weapons, the update has those too!

  • M99 AMR Sniper Rifle for Sharpshooter
  • Static Strikers for Berserker
  • Doomstick for Support
  • Goreshiv Survivalist Knife
  • Weapon Upgrade System

To top it all off, Killing Floor 2 is now 60% on Steam for the summer event. It’s a good time to team-up with friends and kill some Zeds.

Killing Floor 2 is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
