For PC players, we have some map updates that move the big Beta needle to Release. For Xbox 360 players, sorry, but the Cold Stream DLC on the Xbox 360 is going to be delayed until next week.

We have almost all the details available here on our Cold Stream Update page – we just missed one – to celebrate the launch of Cold Stream – Left 4 Dead 2 is 75% off on Steam!

Filed under: Randomness — Tags: , , , , — Trunten @ 01:15

After over a year of play testing not just the Cold Stream campaign on the PC but the entire DLC consisting of Blood Harvest, Crash Course, Cold Stream, Dead Air, and Death Toll, we are ready to release on the Xbox 360.

The date will be July 24th. There are some other surprises and details we will give you later but for now we just want to confirm an often requested feature. With the update going out at the same time (also for the PC), all of the mutations will be available at all times.

Now that we have a solid version of the maps (some minor changes still coming), we are focused on the DLC and getting some pesky bugs out of the shipping version. As soon as we have a release date we will let you know.

Updates to Left 4 Dead 2 have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The major changes include: Death Toll campaign released. We are releasing the beta version of Death Toll today. We have made a few changes based on issues we saw during internal testing. It will be interesting to see what people think of those changes. No hints on what the changes are, we want you to play with fresh eyes. Please post all feedback and bugs to the L4D2 Steam Forums.

Connecting Flights

Filed under: Randomness — Tags: , , , , — Trunten @ 16:19

Today’s Left 4 Dead 2 update contains a new version of the Terminal Map For Dead Air. With this change, we are getting pretty close to being complete on this campaign. We have a few more known bugs to fix – but it is close. At this stage what we really need is more testing.

To encourage testing, we created a new achievement: Connecting Fights. You earn it by playing a complete game of Versus in Dead Air. Do that and we have another prize. When 60,000 people earn this achievement, we will unlock the beta version of Blood Harvest on Steam the next weekday.

60,000 is going to be hard. You can’t rage quit and you need to work together. Once you get the achievement, help others get it as well. As always, please post feedback and bugs for the campaign on the Steam Forums and Facebook.

Watch for twitter updates with stats on your progression to the goal.

Left 4 Dead 2 Dead Air early release possible

Filed under: Randomness — Tags: , , , , , , , — Trunten @ 18:48

While we are still tweaking Cold Stream and making some game play changes, we really want people to pound on the Cold Stream maps and help us find any bugs.

Normally on an internal project we would have the whole company take a part of each day and do nothing but play the upcoming game or DLC and submit bugs. To add to the fun we often give out prizes for participating. Since Cold Stream is not just being developed internally but also with the community – we want the community to help pound on the campaign and look for bugs.

What’s your prize? If 20,000 people can earn the Stream Crosser achievement (Survive a campaign of Cold Stream on any difficulty) by the end of day this Sunday, we will give all Steam players a reward – On July 22nd we will release Dead Air from the upcoming Cold Stream DLC early.

Don’t have Left 4 Dead 2 on the PC yet? Maybe you play on the Xbox 360? Here’s some encouragement to give it and Cold Stream a try; Left 4 Dead 2 is 75% off today only! That makes today the perfect time to pick up a copy or gift one to a friend.
