Update: Valve has detailed The Passing a bit more, citing the single-player, multiplayer and co-op modes that will be present in the DLC. It will also include weekly game mode events called “Mutations.” These week-long runs of new gameplay modes range from “Realism Versus” mode to “Chainsaw Massacre,” which gives all players chainsaws with an unlimited supply of gasoline. YES!
There are over 20 Mutations planned, each playable on all L4D2 Campaigns. Mutations are exclusively available to owners of “The Passing” DLC.
It will run you 560 MSP on XBL and will be free for PC.
More below the break.

Looks like those in the UK wanting physical copies of Left 4 Dead 2 should be able to get one by Friday.
According to a post on Valve’s official blog:
Due to high demand for L4D2, we decided to move various street dates forward for a coordinated worldwide release—except in the UK, where this was not possible (copies of the game are still arriving).
The good news is that we plan to have everyone in the UK playing Left 4 Dead 2 by Friday morning. Those who pre-ordered in the UK before the worldwide launch have been given access to the game.
So there ya have it.

Valve has sent word that the Left 4 Dead 2 demo can now be played by all Xbox Live members.
Yes, even the Silver ones.

Full thing’s out on PC and Xbox 360 November 17 and 20 in the US and UK, respectively.

Valve’s Chet Faliszek has said since the Xbox 360 community is “head and shoulders above the PS3″, it’s one of the reasons that the developer bypasses the Sony console.
“Right now for Left 4 Dead 2 we’re looking at PC and 360 because the community aspects really fit the game – it’s all about playing with your friends,” he said. “But that’s the short term. What we’re looking at for the long term… if it works out, it works out.
“Right now don’t not buy it on the 360 because you think it’s coming out on the PS3 – it’s not going to. Right? It’s coming out on the PC and 360. It’s going to be exclusive for that.
“In hooking up with your friends and the community aspects, I think the Xbox 360 is head and shoulders above the PS3. The 360 and PC are on par, right?”

Valve’s running a preorder incentive on the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2, where you not only get 10 percent off the cost of the game, but Bill’s beret from Left 4 Dead 1 for your Team Fortress 2 character.
If you already preordered the game, Valve said to fire-up your TF2 game and the beret will be ready and waiting for you.
Check with your local retailer to make sure it’s participating, though, just to be sure.
Full thing’s over on the TF2 blog.

Valve’s told OXM that it wants to sell mods from the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2 on Xbox Live.
The company won’t be able to give them away because “Xbox Live isn’t set up like that,” so it’s considering distributing content and passing the money back to the creators.
There’s more through there. The game’s out soon.

Johnathan Kessler, the manager for Depeche Mode, has told VG247 that the band’s inclusion in Valve’s Left 4 Dead 2 was a way to get their music out to a younger generation.
“There is no storyline in the game with the band, as they do not appear in the game,” Kessler told VG247 exclusively.” Their music was included as a way to get their songs out there, so that the kids can be exposed to it in a way that differs from conventional radio.”
As far as this being a stepping stone for the band to possibly be included in Rock Band or Guitar Hero in the future, Kessler says that there are “no plans for that at this time”.
So, being able to rock out on our plastic guitars to “I Feel You” is not in our future for the present, kiddos.
However, we can console ourselves by shooting zombies in L4D2 to Fletcher, Gahan and Gore’s music instead.
