Sword Allies Unite For Left 4 Dead's Next Mutation

The latest playlist in Left 4 Dead 2's mutation mode breaks out the katanas - "Four Swordsmen of the Apocalypse" is easy to figure out from the title alone: swords only, versus the horde.

The Left 4 Dead blog says the mode pits survivors against "near continuous streams of Special Infected ready to be sliced and diced." And look, it still cuts a tomato like this!

The update teases next week's change - something called "Hard Eight." Is that a spiteful response to the last poll, which found the Hard Rain boat wait as the least favourite finale of the game? Who knows.

Week 12 [Left 4 Dead Blog]


    Quite a difficult mutation indeed. But very fun.

    Ive been trying to play it on xbox live but im not having much luck- i can't find any games to join.
    The copy im using is the pal uncensored version from england, but everytime i try to find a game, nothing can be found- ideas?

      Try checking your NAT settings. Make sure you are in open NAT and not moderate.

      After that, I'm not really sure. I don't think the English version should be different. Usually games aren't coded to look for a region, they use the settings on the Xbox.

    It might be me but... reading this, i was reminded of DotA

    I want them to release L4D for Mac already, I feel like I'm missing out but I cbf rebooting into Windows all the time.

    Speaking of finding games to join (and unfortunately this doesn't help you William), two friends and I have been playing the uncensored version of L4D2 on PC and need a 4th (AU/NZ only please).

    If anyone is interested, you can add me on Steam:
