Killing Floor 2 is making all the noise right now, especially since developer Tripwire Interactive announced that it’s coming to Steam Early Access on April 21, 2015. But the story became truly interesting when I learned that the game was also coming to Linux and SteamOS.
Obviously, a Linux port only makes a Mac port all the more likely. After all, we often see Linux ports after a Mac port is confirmed (I can only think of a few exceptions) because the Mac platform is much bigger.
Or so I thought.
After scouring the net for details regarding a Mac version of the game, I finally turned to Twitter to ask Tripwire Interactive directly what were their Mac plans. Their answer was slightly disappointing, but at least we know:

I would have preferred a “hell yeah, it’s coming very soon“, but I thank Tripwire Interactive for taking the time to respond and at least inform us that a Mac version is under discussion.
About Killing Floor 2
Killing Floor 2 is a first-person shooter that can be played alone or cooperatively with up to six players. Gameplay consists of players fighting through waves against zombie-like specimens, known as Zeds. Players are equipped with melee weapons and firearms used to kill enemies, a healing syringe used to heal themselves and teammates, and a welder used to block entrances and exits.
Once a player dies they will not respawn until the end of the current wave; the mission is failed if all players are dead simultaneously. As waves pass, the enemy count will increase and different enemy types are introduced with the final wave culminating in a boss fight (via Wikipedia).
All is not lost
If you’re anything like me and were left with an itch to kill zombies with friends, check out Valve’s awesome Left 4 Dead 2, one of my own favorite First-Person Shooters on Mac. Or any of the thousand of zombie killing games out there!
I’m feeling like harassing developers lately, do you have any special Mac game request you would like to tackle next? 😉 Let me know in the comments!
