Week 23

September 24, 2010 - L4D Team

Survival Versus, What Form?, What the what?

Versus Survival
Can you survive against your friends?

The first Survivor team sets the time. The second team tries to beat it. Then the first team tries to beat the second team's time. Then the second team tries to beat the first team's time. And then the... you get the idea. Rounds keep switching until someone fails to beat the previous time.

This is a great way to try Versus. Rounds are only as long as you can keep beating each other’s times. There are no rushing Survivors. Infected spawns get quicker as the time increases. It is mayhem filled with all the weapon perks and items. What’s not to like? Give it a try.

What Form?
We are onto part 2 of the comic, part 3 is coming out on Tuesday. Besides being released on the web, are there other formats you would like to see?

Our first localized version (Russian) will be coming out soon. We are also releasing versions of the comic to help with localization. Make sure to check it out in its current form and we will be announcing other formats in the future.

What the What?
Sorry no poll this week and no new mutation next week. With the release of the new DLC October 5th we want to be able to make some changes to our infrastructure leading to that release. On the 5th we will have a new Mutation and we mean NEW!

The DLC “The Sacrifice” will be available for the XBOX 360, PC, and Mac on October 5th. It will include the new Campaign “The Sacrifice” and the Left 4 Dead 1 campaign, “No Mercy”. In both campaigns you will be able to play as the Left 4 Dead 1 Survivors but you will be using Left 4 Dead 2 weapons and items against Left 4 Dead 2 monsters!

Don’t forget, the Midnight Rider’s Save Me Some Sugar video contest. Submissions are due by October 1st. Make sure to promote your video online using the Steam forums or our facebook pages! For more information visit http://www.midnight-riders.com/videocontest/.
