Restart Steam: L4D Survival Mode Is Out

Left 4 Dead will update with Survival Mode if you restart Steam, and it's reportedly rather brutal. Dead Air and Death Toll are also now playable in Versus mode (which I think is actually more interesting than the new mode, but hey, that's just me.) Anyone playing? How long have you managed to stay alive? I'll try and post some more useful thoughts when I…

Graph-ick Violence: L4D Survival Mode Out Soon

The downloadable add-on "Survival Mode" for L4D is apparently out sometime this week, and Valve were kind enough to detail it on their L4D blog, last week. I was off being clever somewhere and so didn't notice it until this morning. Anyway, it says that "given the extreme pace of Survival Mode, the number of zombies killed in a single round often outnumbers an entire…

Left 4 Dead DLC 4 Free

The matter's settled. The DLC for Left 4 Dead will be absomolutely free on PC and 360. Valve have proclaimed the good news about the L4D Survival Pack, which we describe in words here. Quite how Valve have managed to get something out on 360 without forcing the masses to tithe to the Redmond Beasts we don't know, but that's not our problem anyway. The…

Left 4 Dead DLC, Campaigns, New Mode, SDK

Edit: reader research suggests this is free - see comments - but still no official response from Valve. We'll let you know, but assume it is free! Valve say: "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." They also say:…

Dawn Of The Left 4 Dead

Give a modder a first-person shooter, and he can mod for a year. Give a modder a co-operative first-person shooter about a zombie apocalypse and he can mod forever. Yes, one of the first fruits of the Left 4 Dead modding scene has revealed itself, and it's a doozy. Fancy slaying deadheads by the metric crapton in a Dawn of the Dead-esque shopping mall? It's…

Left 4 Dead RPS Review Face-Off

You'd have thought with RPS' extensive Left 4 Dead coverage, we'd have written all pallid, unattractive men could stand to hammer about zombies tearing flesh. And normally you'd be right. But you forgot about the most potent power-up. Money. Lots of Money. And if there's one thing that RPS is good at, it's selling our God-given-lack-of talent for a few tiny coins to spend on…

Left 4 Dustbowl

We had said, amongst ourselves, that we probably had enough Left 4 Dead coverage today already. This one's just far too epic not to report, though. Via Castle Crecente, it's Left 4 Dead played happily in Team Fortress 2 maps: Man! Fast work, modders. There's safe rooms and everything. It also supports Hl2 maps, apparently - there's a guide on how to do it yourself…

RPS Exclusive: Left 4 Dead’s Dead Air Campaign

So far you'll have seen details of two of Left 4 Dead's four campaigns, No Mercy and Blood Harvest. Today we have a world exclusive first look at a third campaign, Dead Air. What follows is a detailed photo "essay" (using that term loosely) of our experience in the campaign - reveling and revealing details from its quiet beginnings to its climactic conclusion (i.e. SPOILERZ).…

Left 4 Dead Demo Contains Playable Infected

A couple of interesting hacks have appeared for the Left 4 Dead demo. People have found a way to get at the splitscreen mode, intended only for the 360 version, and more interestingly, how to play as the Infected. It's important to note that the latter isn't a way to get Versus mode in the demo - instead it's a very choppy console-command-led method that…

The Livid Dead: L4D Versus Mode

Our second day playing Valve's zombie shooter was based around the main multiplayer mode in the game. "Versus" pits two teams of four against each other, alternately playing through the sections of the campaign maps. One side tries to reach the end of the stage as survivors, whilst the other, playing as the boss infected, try to stop them. Then they swap. Our initial hands-on…
