The day no doubt many of our readers have been waiting for is here, as Valve worked with the community to create a brand new update to Left 4 Dead 2 named The Last Stand.

Made in partnership with over 30 members of the modding community, it's been a long time since Valve came back to Left 4 Dead 2 in any sizeable way which is why it's so exciting. What exactly does it include? A lot. Seriously, there's loads. Some highlights include: The Last Stand Campaign and over 20 survival maps, new melee weapons, new animations, new voice lines, Counter-Strike: Source weapons in all servers, new mutations and so much more.

If you want to see the full list of changes, Valve put up a list here with some of the details and Valve get it a slick dedicated page on the official L4D2 site.

Note: while I've seen plenty across the net call it a "DLC", and it is when you think about what DLC literally stand for, it actually comes in the form of a standard free patch for everyone to update their game with and not as a DLC item you need to download separately on Steam.

The player count is already spiking up dramatically compared to the usual amounts. Looking on SteamDB, it took all of 15 minutes to jump another 15,000+ players on top of around that amount already online. Considering it's one of Valve's most popular games, it's not exactly surprising. This new update might even keep those counts up for some time.

Play for free on Steam for a few days, with an 80% discount if you still somehow don't own it. Our livestreamer is also checking it out right now on Twitch - live until around 10 PM UTC.
