Sequential First Part: The Sacrifice Comic

The first part of the previously announced Left 4 Dead comic is out. It's coming out in four weekly parts, leading up to the release of the actual The Sacrifice pack. It's also a hefty creature. The first part is over forty-pages, so the whole thing should be getting on for 160 and actually includes details to the background of the plague itself. It's also…

Left 4 Dead Expansion Lets You Choose…

...who lives and who dies, apparently. As it stands Bill dies in The Passing, and there's going to be comic that explains how and why that happens. But it turns out that in The Sacrifice, you can - in keeping with the game's own moment-to-moment decision-making - choose who dies for yourselves. This comes via Kotaku, who point out that in this GameTrailers' chat with…

Gobbets! L4D2’s Laughing Gnome Mutation

L4D2's ongoing Mutation event-of-the-week giggles continue, this time pushing the legendary Gnome Chomsky to the forefront of the game. I hand you over the official description: Last Gnome On Earth: Protect the gnome at all cost. Do you crave attention? Want all the infected to swarm you and the gnome you are carrying? Then we have the game mode for you. The team needs to…

L4D2 – The Passing: Impressions Part 2

Where were we? Sorry about the delay. I’ve been in France, making awful jokes about floating skulls to Chris Avellone. He didn’t punch me, miraculously, but I remain mortified. The Passing, then. I’m going to keep away from spoiler stuff in this post, bar stating the pretty-much-obvious that you don’t get to control the L41 survivors in any way.

L4D2 – The Passing: Impressions Part 1

This should be one long piece, but I've been distracted by going to France and arguing with Kieron about routing in fascinating but incredibly complicated boardgames. Figured I should deal with the spoileriffic stuff while it's fresh, though. Conclusion tomorrow, chums. The Passing: the long-awaited conflluence between Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2. There's only one way to describe it. Uh-oh.

Past It: L4D2 The Passing DLC released

Free L4D2 expansion The Passing is out right now on Steam. Free for you guys, anyway. Xbox 360 gamers actually have to shell out 145,500 Microsoft Points for it (about £5), probably because they smell. Exciting new features include a new uncommon 'Fallen Survivor' infected and a brand new three level campaign featuring the survivors from the original Left 4 Dead. Less exciting new features…

The Passing: More On Mutations, Trailer

The Left 4 Dead blog has some info on the "mutations" (ie game mode variants) that are being introduced with The Passing: Our first Mutation is Realism Versus. For this Mutation, Survivors have all the Realism changes working against them, no glows on items or survivors, tougher zombies, instant kill witches, etc. The Infected have all those changes working for them. This makes the Jockey…

The Passing Tomorrow, And “Mutations”?

Free Left 4 Dead 2 DLC The Passing is out tomorrow. It's got lashings of content, including new infected and new weapons. But here's the really interesting bit: The Passing also introduces a series of weekly game mode events dubbed "Mutations." These week-long runs of new gameplay modes range from "Realism Versus" mode to "Chainsaw Massacre," which gives all players chainsaws with an unlimited supply…

Ships In The Night: L4D2 The Passing Vids

Whoops, we missed this last week - frenziedly frenetic footage of the upcoming L4D2-meets-L4D1 DLC The Passing. Alas, team L4D don't show up in these videos, Valve's Chet Faliszek claiming they still want to keep a lid on exactly how that's going to work, but at least it's a chance to eyeball some of the new uncommon Common Infected (including one that tries to run…

They’re Baaack: TeamL4D Meets TeamL4D2

Crivens - and here were we all thinking the first L4D2 DLC would involve fictional hoary old rockers the Midnight Riders. In fact, Valve are doing something gosh-wow-what? different. First DLC The Passing arrives in Spring. It features four very familiar faces. Clue: it's not Zippy, George, Bungle and Geoffrey. There will be much rejoicing. Except by people who don't do that sort of thing.

Retro: The L4D2 Boycott

Here's a capstone for one of the year's biggest stories. Kyle Orland at Crispy Gamer looks at the turbulent history of the L4D2 boycott. "Did Valve change its plans to gain the approval of the masses, or did it effectively pacify the Internet throngs with nothing more than a couple of plane tickets and a hotel reservation? In other words, was the boycott successful? Well,…

Midnight Posting: Midnight Riders L4D2 –

Oooh, interestinkosity. Let's go with Destructoid breaking the story. Those who have played Left 4 Dead's Dark Carnival level (i.e. Everyone but me, as I've been Modern Warfare-ing, a week behind the zeitgeist) will have been enamored with its stage-based conclusion. Well, the band who owns the stage in question - The Midnight Riders - have a website. And apparently - from the mouth of…

L4D2 Access Denied To Brits Until Friday

There's been some confusion regarding the UK digital release of Left 4 Dead 2. It seems that those Brits who pre-ordered the game found it unlocked at 5am Tuesday (Valve time) as expected. However, anyone who's bought it from Steam since has discovered it won't unlock for them until Friday. Which seemed strange, since the game was announced for a worldwide digital release, the retail…

RPS Electronic Wireless Show L4D2 Special

While wandering the long, barren corridors of Valve HQ I stumbled upon Chet Faliszek and Erik Wolpaw, the two men who a few years ago made up the members of Old Man Murray. Bundling both of them into a big sack I carried them into a room packed with buzzing PCs and forced them to join in on a podcast to discuss the release of…

Inarticulacy In the UK: Brits Don’t Talk

John B noticed this little quote-span-into-article over at C&VG where Chet opines that the British are "notorious non-talkers" in online games. Basically, while Americans yabber constantly, the Brits take a more taciturn approach. This will, apparently, cause some major problems when playing L4D2's realism mode. Talk or die. TALK OR DIE. What do you make of it. Is this true? Or is it that Americans…
