Soon, mods for Left 4 Dead 2—like the one that turns zombies into cats—will work in Campaign and Survival modes.
Earlier this week, Valve issued a challenge to the Left 4 Dead 2 community: if 20,000 players beat the in-development "Cold Stream" campaign by Sunday, they'd get the re-release of "Dead Air" early. That goal was met in about four hours.
While confirming a Thursday release date for Left 4 Dead 2's "The Passing" downloadable content, Valve also reveals "Mutations," featuring more than 20 new game modes rotated on a weekly basis, from "Realism Versus" to "Chainsaw Massacre."
Two teams of survivors means twice the trouble for the ravening hordes of infected in Valve's Left 4 Dead 2 this Thursday, when The Passing downloadable content finally shows up on Xbox Live.
