Killing Floor 2 players on the PlayStation 4 have been drooling over the Summer Sideshow event that PC players have enjoyed months ago. Lucky for PlayStation 4 players, the circus-themed event has finally arrived and it comes in Killing Floor 2 PS4 update 1.08.
The new Killing Floor 2 PS4 update 1.08 introduces the highly anticipated Summer Sideshow event. The event will begin this July 11 and will last until Aug. 8, and players have a lot of time to grab all the goodies and achievements they can from the fun-filled event.
The Summer Sideshow is a circus-themed event. At the center of the event is a circus-themed map called The Tragic Kingdom that comes with circus freak zeds. The map itself offers a new way to play for players as there will be specific objectives in the map that players will be required to accomplish. Upon completing these new set of objectives, players will be able to unlock the event-exclusive item, the Sideshow Hazmat Suit.
The update will also come with two new weapons. First is the HZ12 Shotgun exclusive for the Support Perk. The other new weapon is the Centerfire Lever Action which is a primary weapon for the Sharpshooter and serves as a multi-perk weapon for the Gunslinger, both of which are good weapons so they’re worth a try.
To keep players busy, Tripwire Interactive is also giving players the chance to unlock over 50 different cosmetic items. These items can be unlocked by earning tickets acquired from regular gameplay. These tickets serve as the currency to unlock the new items. Players can also buy a few paid cosmetic DLC that come with the event.
Tripwire Interactive will also bring a new game mode every week with unlockable cosmetics. Below is the weekly Outbreak Schedule:
- Poundemonium – July 11
- Up, Up and Decay – July 18
- Zed Time – July 25
- Beefcake – August 1
- Boom – August 8
- Cranium Cracker – August 15
