Gamescom 23: The horror returns, with Killing Floor 3

A big reveal for horror game and FPS fans, as Tripwire Interactive’s co-op shooter series Killing Floor is returning for a third outing.

Killing in the name of

A runaway hit of a series for those who love multiplayer shooters and gore-soaked horror, Killing Floor has been around for a good long time at this point. Believe it or not, it’s been nearly 15 years of terror for the series, which is currently two well-updated games deep. Things it’s time for a third title? Yeah, so does developer Tripwire Interactive.

“It’s hard to believe that Killing Floor is almost 15 years old now,” said Alan Wilson, Co-Founder and CEO at Tripwire Interactive. “We’ve provided free support to the player base all that time, through two incarnations, so now we’re beyond excited to start showing you what mayhem the next iteration of the franchise will bring you!”

Killing Floor 3 is the next installment in the legendary co-op action/horror FPS series. The year is 2091, 70 years after the events in Killing Floor 2, and megacorp Horzine has produced the ultimate army: an obedient horde of bio-engineered monstrosities called Zeds. Now, the only thing standing between these infernal creations and the future of humanity is the rebel rogue group known as Nightfall. This intense first-person shooter puts players in the role of a Nightfall specialist, joining forces with up to five teammates as they battle through a war-ravaged, dystopian future, surviving unrelenting waves of Zeds, unlocking new skills, and building the ultimate arsenal.
