“This is a dream soundtrack for me to have so many amazing bands with songs that fit the game so well,” said Tripwire Interactive President John Gibson, “Only an independent game studio would put together such a brutal game soundtrack, and it’s great to be able to partner with the independent label Solid State Records to release it.”
“Tripwire has done an amazing and innovative job at integrating music into the DNA of Killing Floor 2”, said Solid State Records A&R Representative Adam Skatula, “They’ve hand-picked some of the best bands the metal genre has to offer, and we’ve loved every moment of being a part of this.”

In KILLING FLOOR 2, players descend into continental Europe where the outbreak caused by Horzine Biotech’s failed experiment has quickly spread and gained unstoppable momentum, essentially paralyzing the European Union— Just one month after the events in the original KILLING FLOOR, the specimen clones are everywhere and civilization is in disarray; communications have failed, governments have collapsed, and military forces have been systematically eradicated. The people of Europe know survival and self-preservation too well and lucky survivors have gone into hiding.
Not all have given up hope though... A group of civilians and mercenaries have banded together to combat the outbreak and established privately funded operation bases across Europe. Upon tracking specimen clone outbreaks, players will descend into zed-laden hot zones and exterminate them.
KILLING FLOOR 2 is developed and published by Tripwire Interactive for the PC, SteamOS and PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and is slated for release in 2015. This title has not yet been rated by the ESRB but Tripwire Interactive anticipates a rating of “M” for Mature.
