Summer means patios, pools, and beach trips.

More importantly, it means video game seasonal events. Today, Killing Floor 2’s steampunk summer event is live, and it offers up a new game mode, map, and weapons for you to smash some Zeds with.

The event is called Back & Kickin’ Brass, and it re-introduces Objective Mode, which tasks players with completing a variety of tasks while fending off hordes of Zed. The update also comes with a snazzy new map called Steam Fortress and two new weapons: the Seal Squeal and a medic bat.

Tripwire is celebrating the the summer event’s kick-off with a free weekend on Steam that starts Thursday, June 20 at 10am PT, 1pm ET, 6pm BST and ends Tuesday, June 25. Tripwire will discount Killing Floor 2 for the duration of the sale.

Killing Floor 2 turned 10 last month, so Tripwire celebrated by releasing Killing Floor: Double Feature, a PlayStation-exclusive bundle loaded with every piece of seasonal content released since 2016.
