Valve announces new Left 4 Dead 2 competitive mode “Scavenge”

Left 4 Dead 2‘s “Scavenge” is a new competitive mode that has the survivors trying to collect 16 gas filled cans to fill a generator while the infected attempt to stop them in any way possible. Infected can knock the cans out of the survivors hands and can also use the new specialized infected “The Spitter” to catch the cans on fire. The survivors’ aim will also be important because bullets can also catch the gas containers on fire as well.

The new mode will be split into six rounds that will be 120 seconds long with the addition of a 20 second bonus for each gas can collected. If a gas can is being carried when the time hits zero the round will go into over time until a infected knocks it from their hands or until the player safely deposits it in the generator. The mode will have six maps at launch that consist of reconfigured maps from the campaign mode.

Left 4 Dead 2 is set to be released on November 17th on the X-box 360 and the PC.

Ferenc plays: Left 4 Dead Crash Course

Hey guys, I got a chance to play the brand new Left 4 Dead 2 DLC: crash course recently and I recorded commentary as I played.

I have to warn you that this video does contain blood, gore and lame jokes so beware.

Crash Course DLC for Left 4 Dead coming September 23rd?

The X-box website’s Game With Fame feature recently posted up the opportunity to play Left 4 Dead’s new DLC Crash course with the rock-band Paramore. Usually these involve playing games with DLC that is already out or will be out soon before the session. Crash Course how ever doesn’t have a date. The articles wording was a little interesting though.

If you’re an Xbox LIVE Gold Member (if not, upgrade now! ), and you want a chance to play the new Crash Course add-on for Left 4 Dead, send a friend request to the following Gamertag and be online half an hour before (5:30 P.M. Central Time) the Game with Fame session starts on Wednesday, September 23, at 6:00 P.M. CT.”

While usually they say a chance to “play (insert DLC)  with (insert celebrity)” it says “…a chance to play the new Crash Course add-on…” and that is it. So if the article is worded correctly then you will get a sneak peek at the upcoming Crash Course DLC.  I would say just to be safe except the DLC to be available after September 23rd, but don’t be surprised if the DLC shows up before then.

Ten new melee weapons to slay the undead with in Left 4 Dead 2

Baseball Bats, Cricket bats, Crowbars, Electric Guitars, Fire Axes, Frying Pans, Katanas, Machetes, Police Batons, and Chainsaws. These are your tools of destruction for Left 4 Dead 2 when you need to get up close and personal with the undead. Left 4 Dead 2 will still consist of a wide variety of guns as well, so you won’t have to get your hands dirty all the time.

Left 4 Dead 2 is set to come out November 17th for North America.
