Valve has added the Steam Workshop created Helm’s Deep Reborn map to the official Left 4 Dead 2 servers, alongside an update which fixes an issue with dedicated servers and workshop content. The map, as you’ve already figured out, adds Helm’s Deep from Lord of the Rings to the zombie shooter. It sounds kookie enough to make me want to try it despite being horrible at L4D2. Have a look at the map for yourself through here. Thanks, D’toid.

Valve has launched the Map Workshop for Counter-Strike: Global Offense. This will make it easier for players to access and shoot things on new maps, and discover new game modes designed by the community. Users can also vote for favorites and subscribe to any map or game mode, and Steam will even do the work for you by automatically downloading the map, and updating it “whenever the author makes a change.” Players will be able to form quick-matches, private matches through Play With Friends, and even play offline with AI bots. Check it all out through the Maps Workshop. Thanks, ragdron.
