To opt into this beta on Steam, join the "community test beta" branch available in the Beta drop down list.
To opt into this beta on EGS you will need to redeem your Epic code and launch the Rising Storm 2: Vietnam Beta. Users may need to restart their EGS launcher for the Beta to populate and be accessible to install.
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

Replaced VOIP services for in-game chat to Vivox in order to enable Steam-EGS cross-platform VOIP within multiplayer matches and lobbies.
Fixed an issue where the HMG’s could fail to properly spawn

To opt into this beta on Steam, join the "preview" branch available in the Beta drop down list. Admins will need to use the following SteamCMD flag:

To opt into this beta on EGS, the Beta will be accessible within KF2 owners’ game libraries as a separate install called “Killing Floor 2 Beta”. Users may need to restart their EGS launcher for the Beta to populate and be accessible to install. Progress for stats and inventory are shared between both versions on EGS so for users switching between Beta and Live be sure to sync your game data to use the latest timestamp to prevent any lost progress from participating in the Beta. The Beta on EGS also includes its own dedicated server within the install for your own personal hosting needs for this version.

After extensive and continued study of bloat bile, the lab coats have managed to re-weaponize it in the form of proximity mine deployable via a Medic launcher device (they tell us you don’t want to be too close, just in case something goes wrong, but also assure us that there are beneficial properties for your team).
May we introduce you to the latest in Horzine medtech research. They call it the Mine Reconstructor. In the field, it can be charged up to deploy mines of different sizes which will increase the damage, radius, and healing properties (And don’t forget you can manually detonate for your teammates who may be down range). Get ready to belch some rounds downrange! You will of course understand that the source of the grenade material is classified.
While the Medics are laying a trap, someone needs to cover the backwards advance to safety, and go full Commando. This one is pretty simple, the...
The lab coats have been at it again so we are happy to share some information about new Horzine Research Group (HRG) experiments we feel you’ll enjoy bringing into the field.
First up, the HRG Scorcher. The team has modified this baby to shoot flares out downrange with significant impact and a lingering burn. Other pros? Your target (or that wall you hit because you missed your target...) will keep everything around it lit up for easy target acquisition by you and your team!
Now for those looking for something a little more indirect you can try out the alt-fire which will have the flare break up in flight leaving a line of ground fire between you and the target. So get out there Firebugs, and blaze a trail!
The last thing the team has been working on comes from observing your fights with the Matriarch in the field and the weapons she has brought to bear against you. The lab coats weren’t about to...
In a update to the item database on Steam, the weapon DLC has now been made trade-able. You can now use trading to gift the weapons to friends or trade any duplicates you may have acquired through bundles.
It's important to know that the item in your inventory marked as "Standard" must be in your inventory in order for the weapon to be unlocked for your account. The other variants act purely as skins.
Example: Riot Shield and G18 | Standard | Precious
It’s getting to be that time of year where the strange, weird, mysterious, and lets just through this out there, downright demonic seem to pop up... even more so than usual given your line of work.
Some of our surveillance drones around London have picked up just such an event, so we are sending you in to figure out what's happening, and more importantly, shut it down. The surveillance has picked up a cry from the streets close to some of your old haunts. Specifically the rail station formerly known as Kings Cross.
You won’t find any kids waving sticks at you on this visit, nor friendly pet shop boys waiting to sell you goods around the concourse. Things have taken a decidedly more hellish mark. And whatever world these portals lead you to, we want nothing to do with. But perhaps you can make use of some of the strangeness you will find yourself around for extra power... just remember, these sorts of...
For those not as familiar with the current live Zedative ability, this adds the healing ability to the toxic cloud generated on the ZED deaths. So those who like to live dangerously, life is about to get a little easier for your Medics who have been trying to keep you alive.
The Boss Stomp, a “high” risk and reward method of dealing massive amounts of damage. Currently this method of attack is usable due to the...
Attention Espire Agents! We've just pushed a small hotfix for Espire 1: VR Operative on the PC and Quest platforms. This hotfix resolves a user-reported bug where 2 of our "Espire Trials" were unable to be unlocked after the release of our 1.6 Assimilation Update. The issue is now resolved with this Hotfix. Please note that this bug was present only on the PC and Quest platforms - the PSVR version did not have this bug.
STEAM VERSION: Version 1.6.207
RIFT VERSION: Version 1.6.208
QUEST VERSION: Version 1.6.206
Mission 1.1 Espire Labs: "Me and my lucky charm" (Golden Espire Doll) challenge will now unlock correctly.
Mission 1.4 Data Centre: "Family Bonds" (Mr Winklebottom Gnome) challenge will now unlock correctly.
This update is now live on Steam, Oculus, and PSVR platforms. Steam and Oculus: 1.00.9 PSVR: 1.07
Improved player collision across all maps and modes.
Added support for the Valve Index HMD and controllers. Note: Index controller finger tracking is not supported, all game inputs work.
SteamVR users can now snap-turn and rotate the facing-direction of their projected teleports while in ‘standing’ configuration. Previously, players could only do this while in ‘seated’ mode.
Based on player feedback, players can now have a UI prompt to choose between Teleport movement and freemove when launching KF:I. Players can further tweak the freemove/teleport settings in the pause menu.
For the Steam version of the game, new icons for the Valve Index have been added to all the menus and tutorial sequences.
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.
Avast ye landlubbers! The Horzine team is happy to present to you the seasonal Perilous Plunder update! Prepare yourselves to board into the dark facilities of Desolation. Light it up and search for any clue about the Patriarch. Also, loot with caution and test yourselves in the combat training room or firing range. Alongside this, we have some new weapons to introduce to everyone. By courtesy of the Horzine Research Group, we finished development of the HRG Kaboomstick and the HRG Teslauncher. But that's not all, the Glock 18c and the space pirate favorite, the Blunderbuss, will now be available for purchase. Use them to slay any scurvy Zed you find out there. Now, rise the Jolly Roger and let the plundering begin!
Edited: Event Ends on 7 / 7/ 2020 Fixed to reflect the correct date that was set internally. We apologize for the confusion and any inconvenience over the incorrect date previously given.

Your feedback and issue reporting is invaluable towards helping our development in improving the overall experience with everything we make. We thank you for your feedback, time, and support in participating in this beta!
