New Mutation

Follow the Liter

Scavenge one can at a time.

No more fighting over what cans to grab first. This Mutation spawns only one group of cans at a time, so survivors know exactly where to go. There is only one problem: the Infected know exactly where they are going.

new update

http://www.l4d.com/blog/post.php?id=3824

New Mutation
Last Gnome On Earth
Protect the gnome at all cost.
Do you crave attention? Want all the infected to swarm you and the gnome you are carrying? Then we have the game mode for you. The team needs to carry the garden gnome from start to finish in any campaign. The common infected hate the gnome and will swarm whoever is carrying him. Watch out putting him on the ground, a boomer explosion will send him flying!

This Mutation is available in Campaign Mode.

edit - sigh, clearly valve didn't test this, mr gnome gets stuck in all sorts of stupid places :roll:

New Mutation
Last Man On Earth.

You will become legend to the infected as the last human left.
You are the only Survivor left in the world. No split screen help. No Survivor bots. But don't worry you aren't entirely alone. While there are no common Infected, Special Infected will hunt you down and become close, close friends with you.

This Mutation is available in Single Player Mode.

Straight from the L4D blog

2 Evil Eyes

We are starting a new feature for PC players this week. Bi-weekly community campaigns!
Every two weeks we are going to feature a new community campaign on our servers. We will feature one campaign at a time to make it is easier to find games. We’ll be keeping it featured for two weeks so people can familiarize themselves with the maps for competitive play.
We currently have 120 servers setup around the world with the first featured campaign – 2 Evil Eyes.
For PC users here is how you can join us playing 2 Evil Eyes:
Download Left 4 Dead 2 Add-on support in the tools tab of the Steam library.
Download the following campaign from our friends at L4Dmaps.com.
Double clicking the vpk should install it but you can also copy the vpk to \Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead 2\left4dead2\addons Either way that is where the vpks need to end up.

Start up Left 4 Dead 2.
Choose to play online and any available game/lobby in your area will show up. Or you can create your own game and choose addons and select 2 Evil Eyes for the campaign.

Since we have the servers up, you can choose Official Dedicated for server type.

We’ll be looking for you online! Watch out for the rock! You’ll know what I mean when you play.

New Mutation - Iron Man
No respawns, no restarts, no ammo, all tension!
Try this one on Expert. Realism rules are in effect. There are no respawns in the map. There is no ammo. If your team wipes, you need to restert the whole campaign.

Mutation
Developer's Choice: Last Man on Earth.

UI
Added vote option to enable All Talk in Versus.
Added vote option to Restart Chapter in Versus.
Added the ability in the lobby for all players to vote on starting the game.

Gameplay
Removed Defibs and First Aid Kits in Realism Versus. Survivors start with a First Aid Kit, but all world spawns are disabled.

Addons
To avoid conflicts between Community Campaigns, only content vpks get loaded when starting a campaign.
Added console command "show_addon_load_order" that prints out the order of loaded vpk files.

Authoriting Tools
VPK files now support their own sound.cache file.
Use the command "snd_buildsoundcachefordirectory" to create the sound.cache file that you should include when you create your vpk file.
