Train2Game news: Community created Left4Dead 2 DLC Cold Stream almost ready

Train2Game students might be interested to hear that Cold Stream the latest instalment of Left4Dead 2 DLC is almost ready for a full release.

The significant thing about Cold Stream is that it’s a community created campaign, the brainchild of a Left4Dead 2 player that started out as a personal project but is now almost ready to become part of the full game.

“Now that we have a solid version of the maps (some minor changes still coming), we are focused on the DLC and getting some pesky bugs out of the shipping version. As soon as we have a release date we will let you know.” read the Cold Stream update on the Left4Dead blog.

Using community creation tools and modding aren’t only great ways for Train2Game students to practice their skills, but it can potentially provide a way into the industry. That’s what Valve’s Chet Faliszek, writer of Left4Dead, told The Train2Game Blog in an interview towards the end of last year.

“It’s a really good way for someone to get noticed because it shows that you’re able” he said.

“Normally modders have to work as a team and that’s important, and they also have to be able to finish something and that’s really important. So those two things together are a really good way to demonstrate that you’re ready to work in the industry.” Faliszek added.
