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.

New technology dubbed the "AI Director" is used to generate a unique gameplay experience every time you play. The Director tailors the frequency and ferocity of the zombie attacks to your performance, putting you in the middle of a fast-paced, but not overwhelming, Hollywood horror movie.

The Source Filmmaker (SFM) is the movie-making tool built and used by the staff at Valve to make movies inside the Source game engine. Because the SFM uses the same assets as the game, anything that exists in the game can be used in the movie, and vice versa. By utilizing the hardware rendering power of a modern gaming PC, the SFM allows storytellers to work in a what-you-see-is-what-you-get environment so they can iterate in the context of what it will feel like for the final audience.

To celebrate the announcement of the SFM, They've also released "Meet the Pyro", the ninth installment in the "Meet the Team" series. Like all of Their animated shorts, They made it using the SFM.

If you're interested in making movies and games in parallel, sign up for an SFM beta key and start shooting your movie on location inside the world of TF2 today.

When Left 4 Dead came out, people where bitching and complaining about there not being enough content for the game, now Valve is making more content and people are bitching and complaining about that now. Get your priorities straight.

I'm bitching and moaning because they promised DLC content, not an entirely seperate, full-price retail game. Everything they've shown so far could easily be imported to L4D in a large update.

ok really this argument has been beat like dead jackass (donkey). Like really your getting a new god dam campaign, got ******* survival mode, what more do you want? An arm? Also putting in what they have now would break the balance of the game, cause you to have to download like a ******* gb or 2 at least of content and not to mention you will still bitch that there is something missing so really get off it you cry baby

What argument? That there should be an SDK for Left 4 Dead 2? I wasn't aware that was being debated or argued. Coming from a Valve game it should be something expected. When you say something like that then you're implying that you dislike mods. If so then why are you even on ModDB? Don't flame or make comments like this without thinking about what you're typing. It makes you sound like an idiot.

They already gave a dlc for l4d and another is on the way... and im sure they will add more to l4d after l4d2 since they are working on making it cross compilable so you can play online with ppl from both games.

Valve never said they wouldn't support Left 4 dead
They said they would make a new game but does this mean they are just going to shove aside left 4 dead and make left 4 dead 2 take the spotlight? It doesnt at all.

Hey, quick introduction before I get on with what I want to really say. I'm a brand new member and I don't have any semblance of a reputation on this site, so I'm not trying to be pretentious or have un-warranted self-importance.

However, I have a (very) basic idea for a L4D mod. Since I have no skills in programming, modelling, or mapping; all I have are words on paper. As it stands I only have the idea for 4 new characters set in the city of Montreal during the winter of the first year of the new zombie-apocalypse. What I would like to do with this is provide more information and work on more information for any team interested in making such a mod. Please send me a message and I will give you far more information on said characters (a bio of each one) as well as some ideas I have for gameplay mechanics. If I find someone(s) who shows interest, I will be happy to write even more backstory and help with brainstorming for campaign themes.

Much obliged, Teh_Caspy
