Tripwire Interactive is bringing a popular Killing Floor event to Killing Floor 2 and it’s something that players of the cooperative shooter should look forward to. Players are very excited for the Killing Floor 2 Summer Sideshow event but it looks like those on the PS4 version may have to wait a while longer before getting it. For now, Killing Floor 2 PS4 players aren’t having as much fun as those on the PC.

PS4 Sideshow

A fan was wondering when the Killing Floor 2 PS4 version’s Summer Sideshow content will start and the developer responded that it’ll arrive later in the summer. The developer doesn’t have a specific release date about the anticipated event. At best, the event will start on or before September 2017.

Those on the PC version of the game are currently enjoying the content that comes with the Summer Sideshow event. Like in the original Killing Floor’s version of the Summer event, the one found in Killing Floor 2 is carnival themed and there are a lot of stuff to dig into as well.

With the event, Tripwire Interactive is adding a new carnival-themed map called The Tragic Kingdom with clown Zeds. Players have the chance to unlock the Sideshow Hazmat Suit as well. Last but not the least are two new weapons, the HZ12 Shotgun for Supports and the Centerfire Lever Action for the Sharpshooters and Gunslingers.

“Overwhelming Player Response”

Aside from this, the game’s online matchmaking issues on PS4 is still bugging players left and right. Tripwire Interactive confirmed on Twitter that they are still investigating on the issue. “There are many things going on, the high player numbers have helped reveal underlying issues that we are investigating/working on,” Tripwire Interactive said on Twitter.

Apparently, the developer underestimated the sudden increase in online users that would flock the game after it was given away for free on the PlayStation Plus subscription. “It was far higher than our previous expectations,” they said.

As of the moment, most players can’t get in a game unless they change the matchmaking option to connect to games that haven’t started yet. Most have experienced that freezing issues when joining ongoing matches.
