    I feel good and happy because I played KF for UT2004 before it was a standalone game and before too many people knew about it.

    I actually read into this and found out why you have to buy the whole game again to get one extra skin.

    Basically Iceberg Interactive (the people currently selling the gold edition) really wanted a female character and so made one themselves.

    Just to make the thanks to Iceberg quite clear - they all love the game so much that they actually commissioned the work to get a female character in game. They did all the voice work - we did some script tweaks and plugged the pieces together. So they get the exclusive box as a thanks. And now, we have the tech in place for us to produce female DLC for the rest of our lives. [Source]

    So because they made the new character, Tripwire gave them the right to sell the game as a gold edition with their additional skin.

    Posted by Bindal Okay, that the female char is exclusive to the retail sucks. Big times. Reason is simple - if you want that skin, you would need to rebuy the game, create a new account using that new game and then start from zero with your stats.

    I hope that people, who already own the game, can also get it somehow. Maybe buying a "gold DLC"-upgrade or something, if they don't get it free.

    Well, here is a reason to give big thanks to Iceberg Interactive over in Europe. We’ve talked about special editions. we’ve talked about adding playable female characters – and we’ve talked about new voicepacks. So, with over 1 million units sold and some assistance from Iceberg, we now have… a Killing Floor Gold Boxed Edition, with an exclusive FEMALE playable character, along with voice work in English, French and German for her. Their full news post is on their website – click HERE. The new edition can also be pre-ordered (for shipment to Europe) on their site. We’ll have imports of the box up on the Tripwire Interactive web store shortly, for shipping to North America. Shipments will be sent out, starting on 1 June 2012.

    And, so everyone understands, the box comes with:

    Killing Floor
    The 6 current DLC packs
    1 exclusive female playable character, with female voice packs in English, French and German
    

    This will be the ONLY way to get that female playable character. For those who already own the game and/or any of the existing DLC, all of those will show up as tradeable/giftable items in your Steam inventory for you to swap with friends or even just give away!

    Which still means to buy the FULL GAME AGAIN for one skin...

    Indeed, but i bealeve TripWire will get loads of angry mail because of this, and if you have to buy new game, sell it to your friend or trade for TF2 items/keys/ other games

    Or they could just sell that character as new DLC (maybe with three other girls) later on... Or add it free to the Outbreak DLC (as THAT DLC still costs more than any other DLC. 1.80€/1.80$ for that VS 1.50€/1.50$ for the rest. Means it costs 20% more than the others)
