Killing Floor for PC / Windows is a special version of popular modification for Unreal Tournament 2004, developed entirely by independent, amateur team of Shatterline Productions studio. Its commercial debut was possible with the help from Tripware Interactive, established a few years earlier and already famous thanks to their modification Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45, which won the Make Something Unreal competition.
Killing Floor’s story uses survival horror setting and takes place in Great Britain, where people started to turn into mutants due to genetic experiments. The plague is a work of Horizon organization and has been stopped for awhile, but then research has been taken to the underground of biggest British cities and soon lab assistants’ mistake resulted in monster crawling back to the surface. As one of six heroes, players must stop the dark invasion of infected people, save healthy ones and restore the order.
Killing Floor is an FPP shooter, in which players use many categories of weapons to fight nine types of enemies on vast and open arenas, designed for battles against huge hordes of monsters. Team work is crucial, as ammunition is spare and using environments (for example blocking doors) plays a huge role. Occasionally, game will initiate ZED Time, a bullet time like feature that affects all players. One of game’s characteristic features comes in form of perk system, which can be used to trade obtained achievements for improvements of character’s skills. Players select six perks at the start of each map, letting them customize characters to fit their playstyle.
While Killing Floor focuses on cooperation mode, it also offers single player options, although without A.I. controlled teammates, players are left on their own.
PC / Windows’s version of Killing Floor has been developed on Unreal Engine 2.5. The game also features editor that can be used to create new arenas and modifications.
