While PC and PS4 owners have been enjoying Killing Floor 2 for over a year now, the zed-slaughtering funhouse is finally making its way to Xbox One and Xbox One X on August 29th. This new version will run you $40 and include all previous DLC, in addition to some timed exclusive content that Xbox owners will get first. First of all you can get your hands on the Freezethrower weapon, which much likes its Duke Nukem 3D namesake freezes zeds solid for subsequent shattering. You can also suit up with the Wasteland Armor uniform, which is only cosmetic and doesn't affect gameplay. Naturally, the Xbox One X allows for 4K support, increased performance and high-res textures and shadow maps.
It's great that Xbox One owners can finally get their hands on this fantastic game--no doubt the delay was rather disheartening to the Microsoft faithful. That said, I can't wait for the timed exclusive Freezethrower to make its way to Steam, where I've been getting my zed-killing fix.

In KILLING FLOOR 2, players descend into continental Europe after it has been overrun by horrific, murderous clones called Zeds that were created by rogue elements of the Horzine Corporation. The Zed outbreak caused by Horzine’s failed experiments has quickly spread with unstoppable momentum, paralyzing the European Union. Only a month ago, the first Zed outbreak from the original KILLING FLOOR ripped through London; now the Zeds are everywhere. Civilization is in disarray, communication networks have failed, governments have collapsed, and military forces have been systematically eradicated. The people of Europe are now focused on self-preservation, the lucky few who survived having gone into hiding.
But not all have given up hope; a motley group of civilians, soldiers, and mercenaries have banded together to fight the Zed outbreaks from bases across Europe. When an outbreak is detected, the players are sent into Zed-laden hot zones to exterminate all threats using whatever means necessary. Welcome to the Killing Floor.
