In this campaign you will visit the fictional city of Dawn, visit Anna's house, and of-course arrive at a carefully recreated Crossroads mall where an ever charming CJ will send you on a wild zombie hunt with custom created events and crescendo's optimized for a fast paced left 4 dead experience.

Hi guys, Just a short bit of news and updates. After a much needed break. We're back working on the mod. We won't post any news or info about the mod until we're ready to release beta 1.2

Posted by StephanBotha on May 2nd, 2010

We've taken a lot of feedback from the community and have already fixed maps 2, 3 and 4. We've even managed to get it working in VPK format and have reduced the size of the campaign to around 700mb already. (Our mistake was forgetting all the useless junk that gathered over the years).

Furthermore, we've also changed many of the gameplay events and added more hint systems to help those finding it hard to figure out where to go and what to do.

Over the next few weeks, we're going to keep working on the campaign until we've fixed as much as we can or as much as we can find. For those who still want to play this campaign, in a working fashion, we're sticking to our word to get it out and working.

We will first release it for Left 4 Dead 1 but it will still contain many of the Left 4 Dead 2 features we already implemented (Find the Beer, Gauntlet events and the finale - Dead Center finale was the DBD finale. We changed that a bit now).

That's all for now. We will post the campaign on when it's ready for download. Other than that, there won't be any updates until release day. Thanks to those for your ongoing support. We hope that we can bring you the campaign you expected from us.

Here's a little comic drawing for you guys:

LOL. We hope so too. But we already fixed so many graphic errors and gameplay bugs. Also got a fresh set of beta testers involved

You didn't just abandon this then!

You're back on-top the high-seat of L4D mapping!
