Who wants to shoot some killer clowns?
Tripwire Interactive just pulled the curtain back on the first seasonal event for Killing Floor 2 at E3 2017, a limited time offer that gives players new skins, a new map, new items, and fun new ways to play the survival shooter that will even earn participants special in-game goodies.
The Summer Sideshow will be hitting PC players’ update queues tomorrow, June 13 at 1:00PM Eastern Time, delivering tons of new content, new gameplay objectives and more over the course of the event, which ends July 11. The Summer Sideshow is also due to debut for the first time on PlayStation 4 later this Summer.
The centerpiece of the content is a new circus-themed map, complete with outrageous circus freak zeds that make scary clowns look like cute cuddly puppies. There will be a new set of specific objectives for this map, entitled “The Tragic Kingdom”, which upon completion will unlock the exclusive Sideshow Hazmat Suit. The Tragic Kingdom is a scary place, so players will have to make good use of the two new weapons included in the update: the HZ12 Shotgun is for the Support Perk only and the Centerfire Lever Action is primarily for Sharpshooter and Multi-Perk with Gunslinger.
There will be plenty of other cosmetic items to unlock as well; over 50 different items obtainable by earning tickets during normal gameplay that can be exchanged for things like new face paints. There will be some paid cosmetic DLC as well, that players can purchase through the shop.
