Killing Floor 2's flamethrowers in action

Free weekends used to be a somewhat rare occurrence on Steam, but these days Valve is offering at least one or two samples to pique your interest each week. Best of all, they've decided to mostly focus on games that are currently under development, and as such would benefit the most from people being able to try them out before unsealing their wallets.

As you can probably guess from the title, this week's offer is Killing Floor 2, a zombie slaying shooter that underwent a fair share of controversy over the past couple of months due to a rather slow development schedule, even by Early Access standards. With the most recent update being only a couple of days old at this point, now would be the best time to give it a try and see for yourself if all of the complaining is justified or not.

If you're wondering what the latest patch brought with it, here's the short "Bulls-Eye" trailer that should get you up to speed:


I haven't played a lot of Killing Floor 2, mostly because I'm not a big fan of Early Access, but I don't consider it to be a bad game by any stretch. Graphically and mechanically its far superior to the original game, though the lack of content is quite apparent if you decide to play it for an extended period of time.

Whether its worth your money or not, that I can't tell you, but its currently free on Steam so you might as well give it a try. If you do decide that Killing Floor 2 is something you wouldn't mind playing more of, you can get it at a 33% discount, which brings the price down to €18/$18.
