It took us nearly over 3 Years to create this campaign. We found many friends on the digital "crossroads, and we would like to thank the whole community (including our home turf community of l4dmods.Com for thier help and support. would like to especially thank Stephan Botha for his great help during the last 2 years. Without him "Dead before Dawn" wouldn't be so great. Also Chet from Valve helped us out. The Source engine is one of the best engines out there for modders. But the most important help, or lets call it "critics" we got form all the guys who didn't like the halloween 2009 beta version. All comments helped us to do "Dead before Dawn" better!
It's been an interesting week for us. We would like take a little break and show you some great news. Checking YouTube we found a bunch of cool "Dead before Dawn" gameplay videos and reviews. We would like to take this opportunity to show you guys, some awesome "Dead before dawn" Reviews.

What would be Batman without Robin, Captain America without Bucky, Gabe Newell without Chet Faliszek, Darth_Brush without CosmicD and ofcourse our Crossorads Mall without the head of Security, Hank Kowalski (but without Jason and Billy)?! Yes, DEAD!
Right now we creating a Dev Group here on Moty to gave the whole DbD-Team a face. Without all
sidekicks "Dead before Dawn" wouldn't be so great. And ofcourse, without YOU we wouldn't be under the 100 top mods on moty. Thank you!

Now, if some of you want to polish your german language, feel free to watch a cool "Dead before Dawn" Preview from the german Games-Magazine "Gamestar":
As one of the top-rated MOD for Left 4 Dead 1 on L4dmaps.com we've been worried about "just" porting Dead before Dawn for Left 4 Dead 2, so we decided to pimp all maps on Left 4 Dead 2 Standards. Jaz from "PC Gamer" simply loved the new version:
Right now we preparing a Director's cut version of Dead Before Dawn, exclusively for left 4 dead 2. This version will show you the mall that we had prepared in all it's full glory. Full of events, atmosphere and zombies!
Later in DBD's life cycle we would like to bring one finale update of the campaign. So we would be glad if you want to help us find things that we can improve in "DbD too", To that end, you can post your suggestions about "Dead before Dawn (Too)" on the Steam-Forum:
Also if you get lost in the Crossroads Mall or you want to know how to open some of the secret areas in "DbD TOO", post it all there. If you seriously think the Gate-Event in map 4 is way too hard, call the Crossroads Mall Security for help.
