Left 4 Dead 2 is a title which almost needs no introduction. It's a game from Valve where you go through levels killing zombies. There's other modes, of course, but that's what it's most known for. It's also 12 years old, so to see a new Left 4 Dead 2 update announced, called The Last Stand, come out of the blue is pretty shocking, even if it's a community-made update. Want to see more? Check out the teaser trailer below:
There's not much in the way of explanation for the new Left 4 Dead 2 update. It's a community-made update coming for Left 4 Dead 2, and the trailer is a slow pan along the edge of a cliff/forest. Not much to get excited about besides this blurb included with the trailer:
It has been many years since the infection first hit. Radio silence, no sign of life, nothing but lingering hopes... CEDA is not going to save us. But there is hope! A few brave souls have continued the fight against all odds, and soon we can all benefit from their resilience.
"The Last Stand" is an update for Left 4 Dead 2, created by the community, for the community. Additional details will be coming soon.
Interestingly, this isn't the first time that Valve has let the community develop updates for their games. In Team Fortress 2, they first community-made update was released all the way back in 2010, so Valve definitely has a long history of allowing people to add onto their games, which is nice to see.
