It's out!

The first release of the Fatal Freight campaign has gone live!

It's been a long 7 months of rigorous testing, planning, replanning, optimization, and crazy bugfixing.
But we've finally made it, and I'm really glad I can finally put this out there for you guys!


What's Fatal Freight?

Fatal Freight is a 5-chapter campaign which aims to provide gameplay comparable to that of Valve's official campaigns. The levels were designed heavily around competitive play specifically, and can be expected to provide a hectic Versus experience. Extensive testing has been done to ensure this campaign is playable on all difficulties, including Realism Expert. All secondary gamemodes (Survival and Scavenge) are fully supported by this campaign and most mutations should work with Fatal Freight as well, so have at it!

Left 4 Dead 1 veterans should be able to pick up the subtle references to various L4D1 campaigns in Fatal Freight.

After crashing their vehicle, the survivors find themselves holed up in a small tunnel at the edge of the forest. With supplies running low and the frigid winter looming on the horizon, there is little hope for survival. Suddenly, a strange voice comes through the radio. A man, claiming to have a means of escape is holed up at a freight train depot a few miles away. Seeing it as their best option, the survivors grab their remaining supplies and head out into the woods..


Features?

Installation?
