If you feel like hunting zeds in a nautical location, we have an ad for you: no PC game program (opens in new tab)developer Tripwire Interactive showed off the latest update for Killing Floor 2 this summer, Tidal Terror.
In Tidal Terror you’ll find yourself in the precarious position of being surrounded by bloody specimens while at sea, alongside an arsenal of new weapons and devices to protect yourself. I suppose it’s not This one precarious if you know how to use them and, luckily for you, there are many exciting new things to familiarize yourself with on your cruise.
New weapons include:
- Shrink Ray (formerly called Reducto Ray)
- cross spear
- head hunter
The Shrink Ray sure looks excellent: the thought of a little zed running around is somehow adorable and a little more terrifying than a big one. Although in the beta patch Tripwire noted that the Shrink Ray was originally very powerful, perhaps the launch version is a little lighter on zed killing power. Sentinel should at least take care of small pests, as it appears to be a powerful new automated drone weapon (it’s a support weapon, however, rather than a primary).
I hope you don’t get sick from the sea or suffer from thalassophobia, as Tidal Terror takes place on an oil rig located off the coast of Scotland in the East Shetland Basin of the North Sea. You’ll at least be able to dress appropriately for the occasion: there’s a new old-school deep-sea diver outfit that comes with this update.
You can see many of the new weapons and the map in more detail in the trailer above. For more, check out the official site (opens in new tab) or Tripwire Forums (opens in new tab). There’s still no exact word on a release date for Tidal Terror, but with this new trailer and recent update betas, the latter of which ends with the final release of this summer update, it can’t be too far off.
