Killing Floor 2 players can celebrate the season with the bloody Yuletide Horror update.

Out today on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, the Yuletide Horror update for Killing Floor 2 comes with a new boss fight.

It also features a new community map, objective map, four new weapons, and more.

 

Here’s what you can expect:
  • New Boss: The Matriarch
    • Rachel Clamely returns as the Matriarch, a brand-new boss appearing for the first time in Killing Floor 2. Her biotech modifications have granted the Matriarch a new perspective on life, but has also driven her into the depths of madness.
  • New Community Map: Sanitarium
    • Blast away hordes of Zeds as mysterious entities perform a dark ritual to summon the great one. This community map is compatible with Survival, Weekly, Versus Survival, and Endless Game Modes.
  • Objective Map: Biotics Lab
    • Mercenaries assist Dr. Ogada Buyu in demolishing the cloning mechanisms of the Biotics Labs to stop the Patriarch’s plans to clone a new legion of Zeds!
  • Four New Weapons
    • HRG Incision – Field Medic
      • A railgun that fires overcharged, highly-piercing bullets and darts. The bullets are capable of shocking Zeds and inducing the EMP effect on them. Darts heal other players for substantial amounts of health when targeting other players. When used on Zeds, these darts deal much more damage than standard darts and have the potential to knock down or stumble Zeds caught in their path.
    • Winterbites – Gunslinger
      • Fire large, nitrogen ice shards that explode on impact, dealing damage and applying the freeze affliction to any Zeds caught inside its radius.
    • Mosin Nagant – Sharpshooter
      • Five-shot, bolt-action, internal magazine-fed military rifle. This M91/30 allows a capable sharpshooter to fire at distant threats, stab at nearby threats, and block and parry damage from incoming threats.
      • This is a paid DLC weapon. This weapon can be shared amongst players with the weapon sharing system.
    • Riot Shield / Glock 18 – SWAT
      • A combination of the Riot Shield and Glock 18. The Riot Shield can mitigate most incoming, frontal damage only while a player is aiming down the sights. Its bash is capable of slamming into multiple Zeds crowding in front of you. The Glock 18 is a fully automatic pistol with two fire modes: single and automatic.
      • This is a paid DLC weapon. This weapon can be shared amongst players with the weapon sharing system.
  • The Return of the Christmas Seasonal Zeds
    • Deck the halls with blood and corpses. This year’s winter update marks the return of zesty Christmas-themed zeds
