Killing Floor 2 adds a new mode, maps, and weapons

At the risk of reminding Zack that we played Killing Floor 2 together once, had a good time, then proceeded to never cooperatively* fend off the Zed hordes again, I'd like to point out that there's a free new Descent Content Pack out now fo...   read
