Hello mercs,
Where will you go this winter, armed with your new toys? Carillon Hamlet, a small industrial village that was preparing for holidays has gone silent. We have heard rumors of vicious elves taking control of the area. The hotel and other businesses seem abandoned.

CarillonHamlet03.jpg


The town's old train has come to a stop. The Horzine Rail station is still and empty. At this time it’s unknown what exactly was being transported.

Investigate the dark winding underground tunnels. Scans have revealed some unusual activity. We’ll need some brave mercs to venture there.



The village is full of scenic views that would normally charm even the most...

PSA: Matchmaking Issues Resolved

LATEST: The cause of the official server issues has been found and resolved we believe. We are keeping an eye on it, but players should no longer see the issues they were experiencing in matchmaking.

Original:

We are taking them offline as we test an issue (some players are having matchmaking difficulties) that may have been triggered by these being flagged live for the beta builds. Once we know more this message will be updated.

If all is well, we expect this to last approximately half an hour. If all is not well, they will be unavailable for some time.

New Additions and Highlights
  • Epic Online Services (EOS) integrated into dedicated server framework to enable future Cross-Play capability between Steam and EGS players on stock unmodded servers
  • New In-Game Invite UI system that will enable Steam users to link an associated EGS account you own so that they can send their EGS friends invites to parties and server lobbies.
  • Replaced VOIP services for in-game chat to Vivox in order to enable Steam-EGS cross-platform VOIP within multiplayer matches and lobbies.
    • Voice Settings have been changed to use an in-game UI solution in place of the Steam Overlay for Vivox in order to ensure functionality is platform agnostic.

Killing Floor 2 - Epic Online Services Beta

Hello Killing Floor Community,

It’s been our goal from the outset that Killing Floor 2 can be played and shared with as many players across the globe. To that end, we’re happy to announce that Killing Floor 2 will be coming soon to the Epic Games Store. To ensure that we don’t divide the PC player base, we’ve worked hard to enable cross-play and cross-invite between Steam and EGS versions of the game so that the entire PC community can play together. To enable this functionality you may notice there will be updates in-game to our Invite UI and that we have migrated our VOIP systems to utilize Vivox so that voice chat is possible across platforms. Additionally, for cross-play to function, we have leveraged the power of Epic’s Online Backend Services known as EOS into the PC version of the game as part of our matchmaking and server logic. We understand that we will raise some questions so we would like to be upfront with some of the big ones.
