September 16, 2011 - L4D Team
We are releasing the beta version of Death Toll today. We have made
a few changes based on issues we saw during internal testing. It will
be interesting to see what people think of those changes. No hints on what the changes are, we want you to play with fresh eyes.
Please post all feedback and bugs to the L4D2 Steam Forums
The most popular question these days is when will the complete Cold
Stream DLC be released? We have been saying end of summer, but that
looks to be slipping quickly by. At the current rate of testing,
feedback, and updating we are looking at around Halloween.
The second most popular question, when is the next update to the Cold
Stream Campaign? Soon. We have been working on some performance
issues. Before we officially release a campaign it needs to hit some
performance benchmarks and be able to keep a minimum number of frames
per second throughout the campaign. We are close.
We also have a change to the finale that we want to get some more
testing on. The change will come in a little rough at first and then
we will clean it up if people prefer it over the current version.
Thanks to your testing and feedback we have gotten more data on Blood
Harvest. This caused us to change the bridge collapse sequence a
little bit to give Infected more area to spawn above the bridge and to
fix an exploit in The Train Station. Thanks!
