Play Killing Floor 2 for free this weekend on PC

A free weekend for Killing Floor 2 has been announced following a major update.

Yet another free weekend is coming to Steam, this time we will have a chance to play Killing Floor 2, the gruesome shooter by Tripwire Interactive.

This free weekend seems to be a celebration for a major update that was just released for the game.

The update adds two new classes, the Firebug and and Demolitions; topped off with new weapons and grenades for each class.

Two new maps are also being added to the game in conjunction with new achievements and updated skill trees for certain classes.

Tripwire’s co-operative zombie shooter is currently free to download, and will be until September 6, at 5PM GMT.

The full game will be playable across the weekend, which is still in development via Steam’s early access programme.
