The first DLC for Left 4 Dead 2, The Passing, will be out tomorrow for both the PC and Xbox 360. The content includes a number of new features including:
A new 3 map campaign which takes place between “Dead Center” and “Dark Carnival”. In the campaign the cast meets up with the survivors from the original Left 4 Dead.
A new uncommon infected, the “Fallen Survivor”, that drops usable items when killed.
Two new weapons, the M60 (which cannot be reloaded) and a golf club melee weapon.
A new co-operative challenge mode
Support for infected bots in Versus mode (awesome).
A new game mode, “Mutations” which changes on a weekly basis. Some examples of the rotating game modes include “Realism Versus” mode or “Chainsaw Massacre” where each player is given a chainsaw with limited fuel.
The DLC will run 560 Microsoft points ($7.00) for the Xbox 360. It’s free for PC users.
They fix the Javelin glitch and introduce two great new ones: infinite ammo on everything (no cooldown on the C-130’s guns, for instance) and joining random private matches when searching for games. Awesome. I’ve had a lot of trouble the past couple of days joining the same game with my party, which is amazingly annoying. These problems seem to effect the Xbox 360, only. Apparently Infinity Ward is aware of the problem, though. From their Twitter:
Preparing an in depth #MW2 Status Report for players to stay aware of what we’re addressing & how it’s progressing. Lots of updates in works
Valve’s WAR! Update Team Fortress 2 will be adding in a new crafting system. Basically, you find blueprints (or otherwise discover, I guess some are “secret”), smelt all your useless duplicates weapons to scrap parts, and use those to make a weapon you actually want! I honestly think it’s a great way to go, my inventory is completely full of useless duplicates. Or was when I stopped playing a while ago.
Anyway, with these constant, free updates to Team Fortress 2, Valve is quickly becoming the most awesome game company. Ever.
It was funny at first. Then it got amazingly annoying. Particularly when you faced groups of people with clan tags like “JAV” all running around doing it. Now, finally, it’s gone forever. For those who enjoy being cheap, fear not, Akimbo Model 1887s remain insanely overpowered.
Fun fact: I worked at the company that makes the Javelin. So, in a small way, I made this glitch a reality.
