From Left4Dead411:

Valve has just issued a press release saying that a new game mode called "Survival" will be released this Spring along with Dead Air and Death Toll for Versus mode and the SDK.

Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Half-Life, Portal, Team Fortress, and Counter-Strike) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced a series of content and development releases for its latest title, 2008's best-selling new game property for the PC and Xbox 360, Left 4 Dead (L4D).

The first L4D DLC - dubbed the L4D Survival Pack -- is due for release this spring and introduces a new multiplayer game mode entitled, Survival, plus two complete campaigns for Versus Mode . A Critic's Choice Edition of the game is also heading to retail stores this spring, and will include access to all the content introduced in the L4D: Survival Pack.

In addition, for PC gamers and aspiring developers, the first Left 4 Dead release for the Source Software Development Kit (Source SDK) will allow the creation of custom Left 4 Dead campaigns that will be discoverable via L4D's matchmaking system. The SDK update is also due for release this spring, and is free of charge to all owners of L4D on the PC.

"Since Half-Life launched in 1998, Valve has made continuous efforts to expand the offering of its products beyond what's included on the day of launch," said Gabe Newell, co-founder and president of Valve. "With Half-Life and Counter-Strike, and more recently Team Fortress 2, we've learned that we're no longer making stand-alone games but creating entertainment services. With Left 4 Dead we're extending that tradition by creating additional gameplay and releasing our internal tools to aspiring developers so they may also create and distribute new Left 4 Dead experiences."

Left 4 Dead is a survival action game from Valve that blends the social entertainment experience of multiplayer games such as Counter-Strike and Team Fortress with the dramatic, narrative experience made popular in single player action game classics such as the Half-Life series of games. Released in November of 2008, L4D has earned over 25 industry awards from outlets around the world.

No details yet on Survival mode.

I have already ran some of the pre-sdk custom maps and they are pretty sweet, when sdk comes out its going to be nice already allot of mod map designers are prepping up for its release, more maps then you can shake a fist at, in other articles Valve says that in the mod server list custom map dls will be accessible, and made ready for use as well as pre scanned for viruses and other possible hacks!

the server list im talking about is accessed by typing , openserverbrowser in your consol.

Is this gonna be a paid-for add-on, or simply a free update??

You can see the L4D Franchise going on and on and on. Since the game start with "2 Weeks After Initial Outbreak" we are so going to have the:
- 1 Week After
- Day Of Outbreak
- 1 Year After

etc etc

and I C A N T W A I T ;)


What about 28 days later and 28 weeks later? I sure feel sorry for you Brits after that whole zombie outbreak thing. Must have been a bad time... doh

You mean like in that video? That dude still cracks me up! lmao

Seriously Sissyboy, it's a great game. I never liked the idea of co-op mode gameplay before but it has been a blast in L4D and it really gets the point of teamwork across. Right 999, Dax, Zeus? lol

As for the price, that's a judgement call I'll leave to you. It was worth it to me.

It's a great game, worth the money IMO. Just realize it's significantly different then et or qw. Do not try running off by yourself or strafing while in a group as you'll likely be tk'd via autoshotty or lit on fire.

Disclaimer: You'll likely be autoshotty'd in the head and/or lit on fire multiple times during play even if you do play right. wink
