    The reason Valve rule.

    Best game of 2008 for me, played about half of it at a friends and I only just finished it when I got my new PC few days ago.

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Hurrah! This will breathe life back into the corpse of my copy of Left 4 Dead. Great game, but it was so shortlived. Can't wait for custom campaigns! The slaying has only just started [​IMG].

    People have already been making their own campaigns for PC Left 4 Dead, it's just now they can do them officially and much much easier. I want to know what the Survival mode is.

    So we're just getting a survival mode and the other 2 stages for Versus? (Which should have been available from the start)

    I'm making a full assumption with it, but i'd figger this would be a never ending hoard of the undead. Kinda a time-based "win." Probably in waves.

    Still, very curious to see [​IMG]

    They weren't included at the start because they were extremely unbalanced, and in some cases incomplete. They couldn't really afford to have it miss the holiday rush.

    I've played hacked versions of those two campaigns on Versus and it's pretty apparent why they were left out. All but two of the Infected "You can climb here!" things were missing, the roofs in Death Toll weren't solid so you couldn't walk on them to pounce, there were several spots where if a smoker grabbed you, you were just dead with no hope of recovery. They clearly weren't ready.

    @WildWon: Similar to Gears of War 2's Horde mode? I can see that...

    Thank you, that's what I said.
    If they were not ready for the launch date, then they should be offered for free later. Not make us pay for what should have been in the game before.

    This still isn't as bad as EA wanting $10 for the new 100 KB add-on for Burnout Paradise that allows you to swap the controller around and see who gets the most points.
    At this price, you can buy a floppy disk for only $120. What a deal.

    It's been revealed that Gametrailers TV on SpikeTV tomorrow night at 1am will air the contents of the DLC. And I'm going to say it again - The PC version gets the DLC for free. Microsoft is forcing Valve to make it cost something on the 360, it is not something they can control.

    No one should be surprised that it's working this way. Valve has already gone on the record of saying the exact same scenario for Team Fortress 2 on the 360, I have no idea why people thought Left 4 Dead would be any different. This is the one of the key reasons why I got rid of the 360 version and held on to the PC version. Blame Microsoft, not Valve.

    They've said they wanted to get Death Toll/Dead Air VS out the door first before the next true new campaign. But they are coming.


    ****EDIT: And the show aired. The Versus Campaigns are indeed Death Toll and Dead Air, and the Survival Mode is essentially Gears of War 2's Horde Mode.
