Left 4 Dead Survival Pack Details

The Left 4 Dead Blog has a lengthy post outlining details for the upcoming survival pack for Left 4 Dead, Valve's multiplayer shooter. The article includes more insights into the extensive research Valve uses to help with game design (though only one graph this time for you PowerPoint fans), describing how they determined the way difficulty will ramp up over time in survival mode.

Can I just have the SDK instead?

Myself, I'm an amateur mapmaker at best, but I can't wait until the guys who made Dead City and Death Aboard maps get a hold of the SDK and churn out campaigns that rival the Valve ones.

Check out the maps from Diputs and ilcannibal, downloadable from fileplanet. If these guys can make maps this good just by tooling around with the code, I can't wait to see what they can do with an official SDK.

I'm not too terribly excited about this update; I don't care for versus mode too much and Survival mode doesn't sound all that earth-shattering. Maybe it will grab me once I play it...
