Valve said they were working on bringing Steam Workshop support to Left 4 Dead 2 back in September, and now it’s finally come. In a recent update for the game, which also brought a fresh batch of bug fixes, came full support for Steam Workshop. This means the community can find and discuss user-created content much more quickly than visiting a fan site for community-created mods and maps. I’m very much looking forward to seeing what the community comes up with now that it’s significantly easier to create and share content, and I’m especially happy I won’t have to sift through cluttered submissions on fan sites (I’m lazy).
I’ve downloaded dozens of mods already that range from weapon skins to an incredible Minecraft campaign. If you have the game and haven’t played Deathcraft, I highly recommend you check it out. It’s quite possibly the best fan-made map I’ve played on so far.
Steam Workshop is an awesome addition to the already amazing Steam. More and more games are jumping on the Steam Workshop train. Coming soon is Workshop support for Killing Floor and Red Orchestra 2. Now that I can play on Steam with my Xbox 360 controller I’m starting get into more PC games, but Killing Floor still remains one of my faves. There is a map making contest going on right now for Red Orchestra 2 and the winner gets $35,000! Soon enough all maps entered in the Counterattack Mapping Contest will be in the Workshop where you can vote for your favorite and someone will walk away with 35K. Head past the break to find out how you can save 66% on all Tripwire Interactive games.
Steam Workshop, the service that allows players to browse, rate, and install community created add-ons will be coming to Left 4 Dead 2 next month, widening the already noticeable gap in features between the PC and Xbox 360 versions of the game. Valve is also working on an experiment that will “allow content to appear in the L4D2 world even more seamlessly based on the community’s response.” the developer said on their official blog. That’s intriguing. The service will also bring with it an expanded scripting tool for players to create more varied experiences in their creations. The best part is the update will be rolling out on the PC, Mac, and Linux, so no one (well, almost no one) is left out.
