It’s been almost seven years since Killing Floor 2 released, and fans have been itching for some more brutal gory action. If you’re one of those fans, then the recent announcement of Killing Floor 3 should be very exciting for you.
Today, the Tripwire Interactive team released a Killing Floor 3 Behind the Scenes video detailing the inspiration and thought process behind the cinematic reveal trailer shown off at Gamescom. The video features Tripwire’s Creative Director, Bryan Wynia, as well as Neil Huxley and Milan Nikolic from Hydra Studios, the visual effects team behind the trailer itself. You can see it below:
The team also revealed a few minor details about the tone of the upcoming game during this video. Bryan Wynia stated that they’re “grounding [Killing Floor 3] in a little more action horror…. It’s a little bit darker, a little bit more serious, a little bit more intense.” This may come as a slight surprise to fans of the series, as Killing Floor has always had a twinge of absurd comedy in its DNA. Hopefully the game doesn’t veer far enough from its roots to upset long-time fans.
Killing Floor 3 currently has no release date. If you can’t wait for more frenetically bloody combat, however, Killing Floor 2 is still receiving updates as of a few months ago, so you can always check that out.
Killing Floor 3 will be available for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
