Left 4 Dead 2 Adding Zombie Bots, Axing Auto SpawnsS

Two welcome additions are coming to the Xbox 360 and PC versions of Left 4 Dead 2, according to Valve, with the addition of Infected bots in Versus modes and the removal of the dreaded multiplayer auto spawn.

Valve's "L4D Team" writes on the official Left 4 Dead blog that the developer "adding bots for the Infected team to help out the Infected when they are down a man or two," a change that should make lonely Hunters and Smokers happy.

Another forthcoming change that should make the Boomers out there happy is the impending removal of auto spawn. Don't you hate that? You've got a good finale going, spawn automatically as the Boomer or Spitter, with no cover between you and the Survivors... well, good riddance, I say.

There's some talk about the current status of multiplayer on the official blog, plus a few other tidbits, also worth checking in on.
