And you thought L4D2 was dead
The fan mutations for Left 4 Dead 2 have been numerous and awesome, and Valve has always been a strong supporter of fanmods. The biggest gesture to these people (which hopefully and inadvertently will give a booster to L4D2's ghost town multiplayer) was opening the Steam Workshop to all modders.
The Steam Workshop website will allow you to browse, rate, and discuss thousands of community created add-ons and even install them directly to your game with just one click of the mouse. We are also going to try an experiment with the L4D2 Workshop that will allow content to appear in the L4D2 world even more seamlessly based on the community’s response.
To compliment the new access to maps, weapons, and items, we are also creating an expanded scripting tool to allow deeper and more varied experiences inside of Left 4 Dead 2. Similar to the current Mutations, these experiences can be laid on top of existing maps or included with brand new maps. These new style Mutations will also be available from the Steam Workshop.
There's no official date for the launch yet (other than Valve's traditional Soon™)but my question is, will the Charger Challenge make it in?
