Dead before Dawn 2 DC loading poster

New Dawn is here

This is Hank Kowalski, head of security of the Crossroads Mall. As head of security I have a responsability for our customers and, of course for Jason and Billy. So I'm glad to informing you guys about the new and final update of my favourite Left 4 Dead 2 Campaign "Dead before Dawn 2".

YES, you can mount your Chainsaw against the infected freaks once again, and bully crazy shopkeepers. We optimized all scripts, and we did some cosmetic changes and handled little issues. This version is the "bloody" final one. After Left 4 Dead 1 was released, Dead before Dawn started in February 2008 as one-man-project. Stephan Botha: the former owner of L4Dmods.com promoted our campaign alot, so we are glad that finally Dead before Dawn returned on its roots. Without L4Dmods DbD wouldn't be so great like it is.

We would like to thank all community contributors who helped us out the last four years and we are proud to be involved in such a great Left 4 Dead Community which supported us so much.

The night is the darkest before the dawn and I promise you.. the dawn is coming. Come to the Crossroads Mall if you wanna live. This is Hank Kowalski, head of security.
Over and out."

No Zombies, no guns, no Zoey.. only Portals

We would like to announce our new project for Valves Portal 2: "CosmiscD's The Core". We stick as team once again together and creating a brandnew mod. Our favourite musican "CosmicD" (the Hans Zimmer of all custom Games) created this one. "The Core" is a custom campaign for Portal 2 and has custom puzzles centered around the manipulation of a constant inanimate companion testing element (cube and sphere).


Right now you are able to play Version 1.1. But the whole Mod gets a new look.

Well, we decided to wait 2 weeks. We want a clean release, It just doesnt make sense to release this now while another big custom campaign release is around the corner for l4d2.

Bummer. That's really unfortunate to be delayed just for some random mod, but I suppose it will give you guys more time for bug testing...now I have to find something else to do for two weeks.

but it's also becoes we hold IHM in the highest regard, and you have to agree that theres not so much people really playing custom mods and somehow it feels wrong for us to get in their way. It shouldn't matter because the mods are both free but you know the boss is a true marketeer :) and the team has always benifited from this :)

Well actually after thinking about it I decided you were just using strategy, because if you released before they did, then their mod would take players away from yours, yet if you did the opposite then...

It's not so much about stealing players. It's more about the fact that ihm has it's first release on l4d2 and players are just more interested in that. We would deliberately swamp our release if we did it at the same time. DBD2 was already on l4d2 and the director's cut would benifit from more exposure if we just wait 2 weeks. At least we do some behind the scenes check and often notice that not so much players in the friendslist are always fully interested in playing a custom campaign.

SO all these factors combined : we just decided to wait.

Highest Rated (3 agree) 10/10

You ask me, why was rating Dead Before Dawn with 10/10? Well, just play it and you will agree with my rating! Dead Before Dawn is one of the biggest projects a Source-game has ever seen. Over a half of a decade in development and finally released. I played the L4D1 and L4D2 version and it's a giant step between both titles. Epic scripts, epic events, epic maps and a fully epic style! The music rocks and the atmosphere of the Zack Snyder-Movie is perfect caught in this mall! But never mind. Don't…
