Left 4 Dead News: Week 23

“Better late than never” is our slogan.

Yes, this was meant to be posted last Friday.

Left 4 Dead News: Week 23

This week’s Mutation is Survival Versus.

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.

The poll results for the “What Form should the Sacrifice Comic be released in?” are finally here:

Xbox 360
45% All
30% Television
10% Just Web
7% Mobile Device
7% Print

33% All
25% Just Web

And Valve tells us this:

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.


And here’s their aptly named “What the What?” section. No new mutation? No new poll? No new article to write? Woohoo!

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

See ya… when the next Mutation comes out!
