Left 4 Dead 2 Toolset Released for PC

January 4, 2010

The one thing I love most about PC gaming is the fact that, in a lot of games, developers usually tend to be gracious enough to release tools that allows players/developer-wannabes to implement their ideas onto the game itself using their creative thoughts along with the supplied tools. A lot of the time, we’re left ogling the monstrosities that people create (e.g. cheesy maps); and other times, we’re introduced to things that are astonishingly well-done. One of these developers that is relatively well known for giving tools to the community is Valve – who has just released a Left 4 Dead 2 toolset that allows the PC community to build maps and share them with the community.

It’s simple: Install the add-on support package and you’re good to go. Just a head’s up, though, for those of you with not-so-fast download speeds – the download itself is pretty hefty in size. But, if you were an avid fan of Left 4 Dead 1 maps – which will be playable – you should have no problem waiting for the download progress bar to fill.

You want to know more about it? Head over to the Left 4 Dead blog. It includes download locations for the tools as well as helpful links and other information regarding the toolset that might interest a lot of you.

Yaris Gutierrez

Born and raised in New York City, Yaris is one of three co-founders at DualShockers. Gaming since the inception of Nintendo in the 80's, he has grown to avidly appreciate games of every genre, maturing his preference specifically now to third-person action games, first-person shooters and JRPGs. He's a software engineer, father and husband during the day, and mildly attempts to hold onto his "hardcore gamer" title during the evenings. An attempt that he tends to fail miserably at.
