Tripwire Announces Twisted Christmas Event


Christmas is coming early for Killing Floor fans, as Tripwire Interactive has announced a massive Twisted Christmas event starting next week. Featuring Christmas-themed specimens replacing all of the regular baddies, a brand new level – Santa’s Evil Lair, Christmas-themed achievements with a special unlockable character, an all new difficultly level and loads of new achievements Tripwire believes this will be THE gaming event of the holiday season. And if a pile of free content wasn’t enough, the Killing Floor crew have enlisted the help of a special guest to battle these Yule-tide baddies – Team Fortress 2’s Pyro. And the sharing doesn’t end there as the Pyro will be bringing back a special Killing Floor item to TF2 with him – Mr. Foster’s trademark gas mask and business tie! Be sure to check out the new trailer and read on for all of the exciting details:

Finally, on top of everything else, there will be a new DLC pack: “ London ’s Finest”. This brings 4 new characters, survivors from London , fighting alongside London ’s emergency services and the army, to try and stem the tide of zeds. You might have wondered what happened to the vicar from the Church in West London – well, Reverend Alberts made it out alive and is fighting to save his flock. With him comes the unlikely combination of a soccer hooligan known as “Chopper” Harris, Kevo the Chav and their new best friend, Captain Sir Richard Wiggins, 5th Baronet of Warbury, the only survivor of the guards at the Palace, still in full dress uniform. This motley crew make up a team known as “ London ’s Finest”, available as DLC to add on to your game, at the same time as the Twisted Christmas event.
