Killing Floor 2 Dedicated Servers

Post by Kuebic » Mon Mar 30, 2015 12:32 pm

Greetings!

There is much buzz around here in the Killing Floor community as TWI (the developers) are very close to releasing Killing Floor 2 for Early Access.

Has anyone been in contact with TWI and are planning on hosting dedicated servers as soon as it comes out?

Thanks

I have just posted on their forums hoping to get in on this. However it is unlikely NFO are going to host EA servers. You never know, but I would not hold my breath.

Hope I don't have to order an unmanaged dedi to host for this game :)

Thanks for the replies. I heard from friends of the developers that TWI's planning on a short early access and be done before the end of the month of April (15th is their goal). I would hope that's the case then :D

There was just a post on the hlds mailing list from the President of Tripwire asking GSPs to contact them to host servers and report usages etc during beta.

I know John is subscribed to the list, so I would just like to throw my support behind wanting KF2 servers asap on the managed platform :)

Throwing my vote in for Killing Floor 2 support as well. I'd purchase a server instantly. All of my friends / guild-mates are looking forward to the release of KF2 and I'd love to give them a place to play. :D

Thankfully TWI is one of those developers that understand the need for dedicated servers on the PC! So far we've hosted all of their previous games and I can't imagine KF2 will be any different.

We will be supporting KF2 during the early access period and allowing its servers to be created in our managed/standalone system.

The people at TWI are quite pleasant to communicate with. They value their community.

This is fantastic news! Press Embargo for KF2 ends tomorrow, the 8th. It looks like I may be getting my hands on a copy. Is there an ETA on when we can get a KF2 server? I don't have a managed box.

Thanks!

We're all set up to run KF2 and are currently running quite a few for the beta. We should be able to offer servers for rent right at the start of the early access period, if not earlier.

Which operating systems will it support? I have a couple managed Linux dedis and it would be nice to be able to put some KF2 servers on it.
