Left 4 Dead 2 PC Patched Up Real Good, Xbox 360 Update "Later This Month"

Valve has put forth a new update for the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2, fixing up a long list of outstanding bugs, tweaking gameplay and much much more. Expect the same fixes "later this month," Xbox 360 players.

Most of the changes appear to be relatively small, somewhat reducing the effectiveness of the Spitter in some circumstances, but not by much. A less specific updating of Special Infected hit boxes is also included, but how they were updated, we're not yet sure.

# Changed rules for ghost placement in Scavenge Mode # Player controlled Special Infected are no longer forced to un-crouch and lock strafe when they crouch attack # Spitter spit that damages players on a moving elevator will now fizzle quickly # Allow the survivor and infected to rotate the camera yaw while being attacked by a Charger or Smoker # Smoker that has dragged a survivor to the end now gets the same cinematic flashlight as the Hunter and Charger # Fixed a crash in physics # Updated the Charger's hit boxes # Updated the Jockey's hit boxes # Updated the Spitter's hit boxes # Fixed player health on being revived after a Charger slam over a high ledge # Fixed versus scores not resetting after a vote to change campaigns # Fixed being able to use defibrillator on dead players who were far above or below you # Fixed pink glow on dead survivors # Fixed being able to hold crouch while incapped to get better weapon accuracy # Fixed players pushing against some props causing them to accumulate downward velocity and then take falling damage when they let go of the forward key # Fixed a case where an incapped survivor inside a rescue vehicle would trigger both the escape sequence and a round restart # Fixed the helping hand from getting stuck when extended


    Well hopefully when they patch it for the 360 the horrendous lag will also be fixed. I would actually like to play VS and Scavenger mode without having to guess if I've moved from one spot to another or not (I've played VS on L4D1 recently and it plays perfectly fine, albeit with playable lag).

    Later this month... that doesn't sound promising

    Still feels like L4D 1.5

    After seeing the Aussie release I will not be buying it. It SEEMS buggy and broken because of the censoring anyway!

      my copy from the UK arrived today. 100% passed customs no worries. Go for gold mate and get it offa eBay or something like myself.

    Michael: Use a VPN and buy the UK version, it's legal and you get the uncensored game.

    Also, I'm happy they've patched all this, but what about the random "survivors get stuck after being attacked" shit that happens all over Dark Carnival and Hard Rain.

      Haven't seen that. Have seen however in Swamp Fever when survivors call the boat over to cross the water, when the event starts, infected players can't spawn til they all get on the boat, getting the message "The survivors have escaped!"

      That and despite the notes saying it, smoker can't rotate camera when smokered someone.

    not that I have the PC version..

    but I imported the UK uncensored 360 and love it dearly.

    though yeah the other day on Dark Carnvial VS
    so Charger appeared and slammed me over into wall, which is fine, though I was kinda half incappped/half stuck in the wall

    I could shoot whoever happened to walk past,
    but it was all a bit silly really, plus I couldn't "die" so I just had to reset.
