Video Game: Killing Floor
Just maiming and injuring can also occur, however.
"I told you, I am welding this doah!"
A cooperative online Zombie Apocalypse First-Person Shooter
for PC published by Tripwire Interactive on the Unreal Engine 2
. Originally a mod for Unreal Tournament 2004
, in 2009 an official retail version was released. While generally an updated version of the mod, there are changes - notably the "perk" system, a series of seven different "classes" that players can choose.
You and up to five friends take the roles of a squad of a bunch of surviving military, police personnel, street thugs, the Pyro
, a Queen's Guard, and more
sent into various areas to wipe out the Specimens
of a Freak Lab Accident Gone Horribly Wrong
. Games are divided into several rounds, in which players must kill a required number of specimens. Between rounds, the players have a minute (or ninety seconds on Beginner difficulty) to visit the Trader, a woman who sells you weapons, armor, and ammo. After all the set rounds are completed, one last round against the Patriarch
, the creator of all the specimens, who has become a genetic monstrosity himself, happens. The game's story is not exactly a masterpiece
, but it has an obvious goal
If the basic premise sounds like anything familiar
, it's totally different. (Mainly because the original Killing Floor
mod came out first.)
A top-down shooter spinoff of the game titled Killing Floor: Calamity
has been confirmed for OUYA; it was released on December 18th, 2013. And on May 8th 2014, PC Gamer
announced a sequel is in the works.
