Tuesday's Gamescom Opening Night Live presentation continued with another unexpected announcement of a series' third game. Tripwire Interactive revealed a new trailer for the latest installment of its PvE, Man vs. Zed mutant-slaying series Killing Floor 3.

The latest entry in the Killing Floor series, revealed during a new trailer that aired during Gamescom Opening Night Live, ventures into the future year of 2091. Horzine has created a killer army of Zeds and only the rebel group called Nightfall can stand against them. Up to six players can band togehter to take on waves of these newest breeds of Zeds while earning dosh and earning new abilities along the way.

The original Killing Floor released back in 2009 while its sequel, Killing Floor 2, hit in 2016. With another seven year period having passed, the time has come for the series' third title. Tripwire is touting Unreal Engine 5 support and plans to use it to create some of the most realistic (and gruesome) Killing Floor images to date. Given that Tripwire has continued to support Killing Floor 2 to this day, expect to see an ample amount of free and premium post-release content, as well.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
