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.

Merc Report - A Whale Of A Good Time

Mercs,

While you may be about to once again depart for parts unknown, the lab coats in the weapons development team have a few new arsenal additions for you to check out. Have you ever wondered what would happen if you let theoretical physicist majors loose in a lab? No, not that infamous lab, a well monitored and run Horzine one. Well lets just say some exciting new discoveries have been made in the fields of gravity and sound.

For those who specialize in Demolitions, may we introduce you to the Gravity Imploder. Designed to answer the problem of enemies who just won’t stay where you want them to. Featuring two types of rounds, the first generates a small implosion (the lab coats said if they tried to make it any larger, it may start breaking down the local laws of physics and perhaps reality) which will draw your foes towards it. And this is where the second round takes over, bringing that “BOOM” we know you enjoy so much, to your now stationary targets...

Merc Report - Spring Into Field Improvements

Hey Mercs,

With your next assignment heading this way, we felt you were due for a briefing on updated and changing conditions in the field. So let's take a look at the upcoming Quality of Life improvements for all our favorite Zed slayers.

Medics, you know the drill, you do your best to keep the team alive and are often left holding all the complaints. Well this one's for you and your teammates to enjoy together: HUD indicators for medic buffs.

medicbuff.png

Medics using Adrenaline Shot, Focus Injection and Coagulant Booster will now trigger the following HUD indicators when the effects are in play.

The initial DOSH a player is granted on joining a mission has also been updated. Horzine has decided to be a little more generous so that those joining late in a mission have more opportunity to provide a meaningful impact and not just another meal for a hungry Zed.

Mercs get ready,

You know you Mercs are at the top of the list we call and send in first when something strange happens, but after what happened the last time... Well let’s just say the suits upstairs want expendable eyes to recon a new mystery. A city this time. Which, interestingly enough, has seemed to pop up out of nowhere. No record of it on any maps we are able to dig up, digital or otherwise.

dystopia1.jpg

We’ve picked a few blocks just east of the city center, office buildings, open spaces, once busy streets, you know the type. As always we urge you to exercise caution during this mission. What’s still out there, and working, may not be for much longer, especially as you toss around bullets and explosives. What we’ve seen of this place so far looks like some of this tech is both familiar, but yet uniquely different. As if science had taken a slightly different path a few decades ago, leading to a new dark...

Mercs,

We know many of you can claim to have seen it all! From the exotic to the urban jungle locales and the Zeds that creep even into your dreams. Perhaps you should think again, as reports are bubbling up about new outbreaks headed your way.

If you find your team or yourself feeling a bit “extra” bloodthirsty when fighting off a horde of Zeds, odds are you have run into the first mutation. Aptly named, well: Bloodthirst

bloodthirst.jpg

While active, the major side effect is known to include the rejection of all healing except from one source, the blood of your enemies. Other side effects include feelings of power for a limited time when larger creatures of slain. So do what you do best mercs, and get out there and kill some Zeds. It may just be the only way you are staying alive, as field reports show that mercs will be gradually losing health out there!

The other new outbreak spotted in the wild? Well, let...

As a follow up to our State of the Game 2020 message, I would like to give you all a peek into our plans for 2021 with the Season Updates so that you have some clarity in what we’re hoping to accomplish and target for the year. I want to strongly emphasize that all these plans are subject to change as we progress through development, go through iteration and playtesting to see what works and makes the cut for release.

For 2021, we’ll once again be partnering with Saber Interactive throughout the year to deliver a similar level of content and features to what you experienced in 2020. To get more specific for our next upcoming Spring 2021 update targeted for release at the end of the quarter, here’s a high-level bulleted overview:

  • New Weeklies
    • Finally, after three years and popular demand, we’ll be looking to expand the roster of weekly outbreaks for the next update. We’re...

Killing Floor 2: State Of The Game 2020

KF2InfernalInsurrection1080.jpg


As 2020 soon draws to a close, it's important to once again look back at the year to see where the game has been and look ahead to the future for what comes next. This past year has certainly been a challenge for everyone in the world, so right at the start I would like to send a heartfelt thanks to our entire community that has grown and supported us throughout the year. Your commitment to Killing Floor 2 is what enables us to do what we do and pushes us to go on.

This year we added the Epic Games Store to the fold for KF2, which added millions of new owners to the community to experience the special carnage that is Killing Floor. We’re floored (no pun intended) by that many new fans over 5 years after Early Access launch, which brings the total to nearly 30 million people who own a Killing Floor game over the years of the franchise...

PSA: Xbox Multiplayer/ Matching Issues Solved

Hello Mercs,
We are aware of an issue Xbox players are experiencing preventing them from creating online lobbies or matchmake into Killing Floor 2 matches. We are working with our partners to identify a cause and resolution.

This thread will be used to communicate updates in the situation as we move forward.
Thank you for your patience.

Monday Morning Update:
The investigation is ongoing. Sadly no new information is available to pass along. Part of this investigation requires the help of external partners who had the holiday and weekend off, which has slowed down our ability to diagnose what is happening here.

We expect more progress to be made today as those partners should be back in office.

Monday evening update:
The cause of the issue has been found we believe and users should now be able to find matches again.

Merc Report - Entering The Ethereal Void

Mercs,

Those portals you’ve been chasing have lead to somewhere... well we would say out of this world but that isn’t the whole story.

The Horzine Research Group team has been sending probe drones into these portals as they’ve popped up and the data received has shown what appears to be an “eternal ethereal void” but the images we’ve managed to get back show more. Take a look.

elysiumcastle.png

We’ve spotted swampland, a desert, a bloody castle and more! And you guessed it, we’re sending you in.

We aren’t quite sure about the what, when, where or anything else about this realm. But something we haven’t mentioned yet... Something over there is reaching out (and we aren’t talking about the zeds and the portals, see if you can’t find something on that and see if one of the “good” doctors has gotten into now) and attempting to...

Mercs,

The weapons development teams here at Horzine have one dream that they share with the world with all of their latest creations: Making sure none can question the effectiveness or bloodiness of their “fine” work. With that in mind, we have two new “lovelies” (their words) to show you.

Did we mention blood? You want to see more of it? You want to weaponize it? Congratulations Medics we may just have the weapon for you! We are stroker’d to introduce you to the HRG Vampire.

hrgvampire.png

Designed to actively suck the life force (blood) out of your targets, the Vampire operator can choose to either project it downrange as a coagulated ball to hurt enemies and heal friends, or keep the carnage going by shooting it as a powerful crystalized blood spike.

Now the other project, from what we understand, was driven by a mad night of binging the latest RPG action games and watching The Techno Viking...
