Killing Floor: Summer Sideshow Event Returns for 2012, Five New DLC Characters and More

Drinks and food not included.

The Killing Floor Summer Sideshow event has returned bigger and better than before. All the Summer Sideshow monsters are back which are re-skins of the orignal enemies from the game. They have also added a new map (Hellride), nine new achievements, five new weapons and five new playable DLC characters.

Steampunk Mr Foster can now be unlocked again for the duration of the event and the new DLC pack is called the Urban Nightmare crew.

A standalone character Harold Lott has also been released. It is “a tribute to the whole Loadsamoney generation and bastion of 1980s taste” which allows you to leave a trail of cash on the floor.

The character is basically based on the great Harry Enfield character “Loadsamoney” which he did as a act before doing the Harry Enfield’s Television Programme which later became called Harry Enfield and Chums.

For some reason the Loadsamoney music video still feels relevant today in this current financial climate.

You and your friends are members of the military dropped into these locations with a simple mission: Survive long enough to cleanse the area of the failed experiments!”

    “After all the fun we’ve had over the years listening to people shouting “Money, Money, Money” in-game, we thought it only fitting to both pay homage to, and parody all that was wonderful about the boom years of the 1980s. We introduce to you… Harold Lott! And, being the kind people that we are, with this particular DLC, we’ve added the inbuilt and innate ability to leave a trail of dosh behind you as you charge around the map! DOSH!”
