Left 4 Dead: November 19th Update

News & Rumors Other

And now we are back on schedule.

Which is great, because this week we have the one and only…

Left 4 Dead: November 19th Update

… Gib Fest!

M60’s with unlimited ammo. That’s all you need to know.

In addition, Valve are now “featuring” Realism Versus, as they have added a few new things.

We are also “featuring” Realism Versus. This week we added quicker spawns for the infected. If you haven’t played recently, you are missing out on one of the most intense Left 4 Dead 2 competitive experiences. It is like regular Versus but no health kits in the world, no glows on fellow survivors, harder to kill commons and now faster Special Infected spawns (coming soon to the 360).

As for last week’s poll results, which were about changing a Survivor’s glow color (before, once a Survivor was incapped, and then got up, his glow would be red even if he took pills or adrenaline, and this could prove problematic for Special Infected players), you’ll be pleased to hear the results:

You liked the idea of changing the Survivor’s glow. The breakdown was roughly 50% for, 30% against, 20% no opinion but I just like to vote. So this week we are changing the glow and also incorporating a suggestion from the forums. The glow color will now correspond to the run speed of the Survivors. This should help tanks know who they can catch.

While we were at it, we added a glow to the Witch for the Infected team.

Sometimes poll results can be incorporated quickly into the game, sometimes they take a bit longer – just a warning for past and future polls. Just because we don’t make a change that week doesn’t mean the results are being ignored. XBOX 360 users will see these changes in future title update.

And this week’s poll is: “Do you like to compete?”, and it asks you if you’ve ever competed in an L4D1 or L4D2 tournament. You know, those big shot competitive leagues where everyone only uses Tier 1 weapons and calls luck on every kill done against them.

I kid, I kid.

That’s all for this week. Thanks for reading!
