Dead before Dawn – L4D Mod

It was only a matter of time before this happened. A Left 4 Dead mod based on the Crossroads Mall from the movie Dawn of the Dead.

Features and installation instructions after the break [via ClanBase]

Dead Before Dawn features:

  • Versus and cooperative game modes (Versus to be released soon)
  • Six maps (five + finale, although no finale in this release)
  • Over 200 custom models/props
  • Randomised set pieces that ensure the Dead Before Dawn experience is never the same
  • Custom composed music for special events, key locations and even custom director music exclusive to this campaign
  • Professional voice overs
  • Unique never before seen Dawn of the Dead inspired vistas

Installation instructions:

  • Extract the dead_b4_dawn folder to /steam/steamapps/common/left4dead/left4dead/addons
  • Start up left4dead, open the console. Type: snd_rebuildaudiocache
  • It will seem as if a map is loading but its really just rebuilding. Let it load and leave it for a while, if it freezes on a full bar, leave it for 5 or so minutes before CTRL+ALT+DEL out of it


[edit] the Down load server seems to be over used and down, so here are a couple of mirror torrent links: Mininova , Fileplay






  1. i’ll be trying this out tomorrow. if any one would like to join, have it pre-installed and we’ll shop, till we chop, at the spooky boutique

  2. I tried to play. Mine wont load ;_;
