Killing Floor 3 once again boasts 6-player co-op action, with you and your friends joining the rebel group Nightfall, as they push back a bio-engineered army of monsters. These Zeds have been enhanced with all kinds of abilities and wield lots of different weapons, so it's up to your squad to tear through them and push them back across a variety of levels.

We've only seen brief sections of Killing Floor 3 action so far, but what's been shown off certainly looks like a step up from the last game in the series. There are gruesome melee finishers, a whole suite of guns to pick up and use, and even upgrades to purchase using money earned by playing.

We'll have to wait and see what kind of new Zeds are set to stand in your way in Killing Floor 3. If the announcement trailer is anything to go by, this could be the most varied and challenging set of enemies featured in a Killing Floor game to date.
