Left 4 Dead Creation Tools Coming Next Week

50°
270w ago - While the campaigns that shipped with Left 4 Dead were all pretty good, you do get sick of them after a while. Which is where custom, user-generated campaigns come in.

Next week, Valve will be updating Left 4 Dead so that these custom missions - like the Resident Evil 3 mod we showed you earlier in the day - are both more prominent within the userbase and are easier to download and play.

To quote: Firstly, with this update map creators will be able to package their content into a single file (a .VPK). This will make displaying, downloading and installing the campaigns a cinch for other users.

The game's matchmaking system will also be updated to reflect this, with "extensive support for custom add-on campaigns". Valve explains:

"When creating or searching for a lobby, a new option named "Add-on campaign" will let you select from among the add-on campaigns that you have installed. You can then find games or lobbies as well as create a lobby for that campaign.

You can invite your friends, too. If they do not have the campaign installed, they will automatically be offered and an option to download it."

This is all going to be made possible via the release of the game's SDK (authoring tools), which after a stint in beta are going to be officially rolled out...

Rumor: New Metal Gear News in Next Week's Famitsu Magazine?

250°
274w ago - As we all know, Kojima Productions is counting down to a reveal of a new title; the countdown timer ends in roughly nine hours, but rumor has it another will soon take its place.

Has Japan's 7-11 spoiled the announcement for everyone? Count this under rumor for the time being, but one clever poster on [Register or Login to view links] has uncovered something quite interesting.

On 7Andy, the Japanese retail arm of 7-Eleven, a [Register or Login to view links] has been put up for next week's issue of Famitsu PSP + PS3, set to hit store shelves on May 30th.

Listed in the table of contents is what translates, literally, to "New Metal Gear". Could Kojima's next project be a Playstation game? He's already developed multiple PSP games, and the engine that powers Metal Gear Solid 4 was certainly not cheap to produce; it would make sense for Kojima's next game to appear on either system.

With the countdown timer ticking away and no hints appearing as of yet, it seems the best thing gamers can do is to wait and see how this all turns out; after all, E3 starts in less than two weeks, and this...
