Extended Mutation System out of beta for Left 4 Dead 2

Left 4 Dead 2

By on July 5, 2013 at 5:43 pm

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.”

Check out the full blog post here for more information about the EMS and Linux support.

Soooooo, what happened about getting L4D2 uncensored with R18?

Exactly my thought. Us Australians don’t really see much point in the game at the moment unless we can get it in its original glory like the rest of the world

I’ll about to ask that exact question!
…Seconded!!

 

This new survival type mode looks pretty awesome !

 

ditto on the reclassification.

it seemed like a fun game, but always felt unplayable when you couldn’t tell which zombies were on fire and which weren’t… among other visual cues that made it generally slower to figure out if you had successfully taken out your current target.

until we get the proper uncensored version, there’s no reason to reinstall this one.

Give it a shot. You just place it on your desktop, run it, leave it open and run L4D2. It’s very simple and takes nothing more than a double click to activate :)

 

syncourt,

I tried that ages ago. Still not worth playing in singleplay, and I’ve got better things to do with my life than throw any more time away on playing with a bad ping on a foreign match.

That’s one of the biggest problems with this censorship crap. Censored copies of L4D2 can only play with other censored players… non-censored will not include local matches because they’re restricted unless you force it to search someone out… so no “just log on and catch a quick random game”.

It’s a good game, but it’s not that good as to justify the hassle.

 

bloodbite,

Is that with the crappy in built auto match-maker though or actually properly opening up the console and using the server browser? I don’t think I’ve ever used that auto match-maker and I always find and get into fellow low-ping Aussie servers with my Uncensored (UK) version…

To be honest I’m surprised at the amount of Aussies that actually *do* have the cut version, what with it being such a controversy and widely known issue with mass order cancellations back at launch and what not.

 

bloodbite,

Yeah just push ~ and type openserverbrowser, then click the custom tab and filter by ping. A lot better than using the matchmaker. You’ll have no troubles finding or joining anything from there.

bloodbite,

Syncourt’s suggestion works completely in multiplayer. Give it a go man.
