Zeds vs. Survivors coming to Killing Floor 2
Tripwire, the company behind the zombie survival shooter, Killing Floor 2, has just announced the development of Versus Survival — a new player vs. player game mode.
Released last year, Killing Floor 2 has been a little slow in receiving updates. The development team has taken quite a bit a time to address the various bugs and balance issues that plague the current version of the game. It's been a year since release and we have still yet to see a decent amount of new content. But finally, the wait pays off. When the next update releases, players will get the chance to play as one of the eleven Zed characters.

Left 4 Dead had a similar survival game mode. Four players would play as the Infected, and four would play as the Survivors. Simply put, the primary goal of the Infected was to make the Survivors' journey to the safe-house a living hell. I have often attributed this game mode to Left 4 Dead's longevity — it was fun. There was a lot of enjoyment to get from strangling another player with my tongue, or knocking them off of hospital rooftops.
It looks like Killing Floor 2 will be following that same formula. Players will be able to choose from eleven different Zeds — each coming with their own unique abilities and play-style.
As of now, there isn't much we know about the game mode. All we do know is that it is currently in development, and that there will be eleven different Zeds to choose from. But keep your eyes peeled, this is definitely something to look out for.
