Nvidia has added its HBAO+ technology to provide a major visual upgrade to this title that launched as an open beta back at the end of May.
Killing Floor: Incursion is a new VR game in the franchise which leverages the Oculus HMD and Touch controllers.

Within the game you will get opportunities to scavenge new weapons, extra ammo, and other essential supplies.
