New Left 4 Dead 2 Achievements Tease New Additions

Valve's seems quite serious about releasing Left 4 Dead 2's first expansion, The Passing, this week... or, according to today's update, "soon". So it's probably high time we find out what those new game modes are.

While Valve still isn't telling, officially, it's hinting at new changes to the game in a new update at the official Left 4 Dead blog. They warn that things could get spoiler-y, if you're overly sensitive to these types of things, so consider it noted.

One new mode may be called "Mutations". Hey, it's one of the Achievements, requiring that players play through six Mutations to secure the Mutant Overlord achievement. And unfortunately, that's the extent of the detail they provide. Another may involve the opening of foot lockers - not to provide zombies with quality footwear, but to, presumably, find well-stocked weapons caches.

Read on for more potentially spoiler filled details, then hurry up and wait for more info later this week.

    Mutations.. it could be an easy achievement in Versus/Scavenge etc that is just one for playing each of the 'boss infected' seeing is there are 6 of them anyway....

      That seems like a pretty good read of it to me (although I would like to see some wacky new play styles!).

    Possibly a game mode that when survivors die, they become zombies, or perhaps one that involves people playing as clouds of the zombie plague, and they have to infect civilians which in turn attack survivors when zombiefied?

      Hidden source style eh? Hmm

    Reminds me of the "Special Infection" achievement in L4D1 that you could only get when puked on by a player Boomer that had the achievement.
