Tripwire Interactive has today launched Killing Floor: Incursion on Steam, bringing the title to HTC Vive for the first time. Oculus Rift owners can now purchase the title via Steam in addition to Oculus Home, and a new content update is launching for existing owners.
Previously only available for Oculus Rift, Killing Floor: Incursion is based on the multi-million unit selling action horror franchise Killing Floor. This new virtual reality (VR) exclusive edition of the series takes the action horror genre in a new direction with a fully-realised, made-for-VR, story-driven adventure. Players can go it alone or face the horror with a friend in co-operative mode.
Killing Floor: Incursion challenges you to explore diverse environments from creepy farmhouses to high-tech facilities as you fight to survive against the horrific Zed hordes with a variety of weapons, including pistols, shotguns, axes, and even the occasional leftover limb.
“With Killing Floor: Incursion, we’ve managed to create VR gameplay experiences we couldn’t have achieved with a traditional game,” said Leland Scali, Project Lead at Tripwire Interactive. “The Killing Floor universe has never felt this immersive and we’re excited for more players to experience it first-hand.”
Current Oculus Rift owners of Killing Floor: Incursion will receive a free content update today, including a new difficulty mode, Katana weapon, leaderboards, achievements, and the new “Holdout” gameplay mode, in which players must defend a map point against increasingly deadly waves of Zeds and bosses.
Following the Oculus Rift debut of the videogame, VRFocus offered the following in a review of Killing Floor: Incursion: “Playing through Killing Floor: Incursion is great fun. The assortment of weapons is the usual mix, with pistols, shotguns, assault rifles, grenades and knives on offer, with an inventory layout similar to other VR FPS’. The pistols are kept in side holsters which are nice and quick to access, whilst the bigger ranged guns and the melee weapons are located on your back – one for each shoulder. It’s a system that when done right works really well, and it does so here.”
Killing Floor: Incursion is developed and published by Tripwire Interactive for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, and is available to download via Steam now priced at $39.99 USD. VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest VR releases from Tripwire Interactive.
Update: The Killing Floor: Incursion has now been delayed until 14th November, 2017. The development team say this is to ensure the highest quality product upon release. VRFocus apologises for the error.
