Gary Busey Is 'Badass Santa' In New 'Killing Floor 2' Update

Gary Busey is no stranger to the world of video games - remember him in Hitman? - but now he's back and more 'badass' than ever before, at least in the world of Killing Floor 2.

Tripwire Interactive just announced that the quirky actor is officially starring at Badass Santa in the horror game's upcoming event Twisted Christmas. According to the studio, "the Twisted Christmas: Season’s Beatings update is one of Tripwire Interactive’s biggest events to date with new maps, weapons, and a new playable Badass Santa purchasable character voiced by Gary Busey himself! Busey also voiced the Trader in the update which will be free for all players during the Christmas themed event."

The team behind Killing Floor 2 is also celebrating hitting a huge milestone for their game! They've officially sold over 3 million units globally across all platforms since the title originally launched back in November of 2016.

Tripwire added, "To celebrate this milestone, all Killing Floor 2 players can look forward to the gift of Gary Busey when the Killing Floor 2 – Twisted Christmas: Season’s Beatings update launches. Soon, Killing Floor 2 players can let Gary Busey advise them on weapon and gear purchases between rounds at the Free Trader station. Players interested in an advanced look at the Twisted Christmas: Season’s Beatings update are advised to keep an eye on the official Steam page for details on how to access the upcoming beta for the update soon."
