Valve have announced that they’ve finished up beta testing on the Extended Mutation System for L4D2, and will soon be deploying it to official servers everywhere.
The EMS allows players a vastly improved level of control over gameplay and game modes, resulting in a powerful tool for modders. You’ll soon start seeing EMS mods available through the Steam Workshop.
One of the early releases is Holdout, an EMS mode that includes resource management and buildable items. “It was created to showcase some of the functionality of EMS,” writes Valve, “and as a byproduct, it is pretty damn fun.”
