Left 4 Dead Crash Course update!!

Today is a good day! Valve has released their highly anticipated “Crash Course” campaign for Left4Dead.


Looks like L4D will also be nice and cheap this week. 50% off!! Full patch notes after the break!

Updates to Left 4 Dead have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The major changes include:

Left 4 Dead

  • Made the variable “mp_gamemode” available again. Note that you can also load maps directly with different game modes by specifying it in the map command. For example, “map l4d_garage01_alleys versus” will set mp_gamemode versus for you automatically and load the first map of Crash Course
  • Added “mm_dedicated_force_servers” to allow specification of a list of dedicated server addresses manually used for searching (ms_force_dedicated_server is depreciated)
  • Updated shared libraries and DLLs preventing dedicated servers listing correctly, appearing on Steam groups, and being found via sv_search_key




  1. had some interesting games with the community today. confusing at first, i think every one got lost a some point. never played a vs game where any one made it yet. should prove interesting

  2. Man I just can’t get into L4D… Probably doesn’t help that VS mode is my least favorite…

  3. I don’t know If I said it already but …Great site…keep up the good work. 🙂 I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks, 🙂

    A definite great read..Jim Bean
