Set in the immediate aftermath of the zombie apocalypse, Left 4 Dead's survival co-op mode lets up to four players blast a path through the swarming zombie hordes and terrifying mutant monsters. Guide your survivors across the rooftops of an abandoned metropolis, through rural ghost towns and pitch-black forests in your quest to escape a devastated Ground Zero crawling with infected enemies.

I've hinted at it, guessed it would come out earlier but it never happened. Until now that is. Valve has finally released a beta version of the Left 4 Dead SDK so modders can now officially start creating their own maps with custom content, like music, models and skins.
Here's what's included:
This release also introduces a pair of plug-ins for SketchUp, a 3D modeling program you may download for free. You may use these plug-ins to create building blocks and props that can be imported into Hammer for use in game levels.
Right now you can download the update free if you own a copy of Left 4 Dead. Simply navigate to the tools tab on steam and start the download. As of right now you won't be able to play the custom maps just yet although they have their reasons...
FYI Valve, people started making maps a very long time ago. Aw well its a step in the right direction, so start preparing, as Left 4 Dead just got more popular.
