Killing Floor III is now in development, bringing back the classic cooperative monster shooter with a new entry after seven years. The Killing Floor franchise has kept itself alive for quite some time thanks to updates and DLC for its previous titles, but this new announcement is a standalone sequel. Information about its additions and changes are scarce, as is any information about its release. But there are still a few things that can be gleamed from its trailer and official pages.

What can Fans Expect From Killing Floor III?

So far, it’s been made clear that Killing Floor III isn’t radically changing the lore of its predecessors. Into the not-so-far future, a cooperative team of players must battle bioengineered monsters known as Zeds. There are new aspects to the story such as a rebellious group known as Nightfall, but long-time fans will be familiar with both the setting and the gameplay.

Only a glimpse of the newest Killing Floor’s combat was shown so far, but it seems to retain the fast-paced shooter aspects of its predecessors. Things to note are the inclusion of a brutal finisher in the game’s trailer and environmental explosions from a screenshot in the game’s Steam store page. This entry also builds on Killing Floor 2‘s realism with even greater graphical fidelity — which might affect how many players can enjoy the game for themselves.
