Left 4 Dead Survival Mode Patched Already?

Left 4 Dead received it’s first bit of DLC this last Tuesday to much fanfare. Adding some additional maps for Verses mode, along with an all new Survival mode, the pack’s best feature was that it was free. Unfornately, it wasn’t bug free. It didn’t take long for players to find an exploit that allowed them to rack up a 10 hour survival time in Survival mode. To add perspective, I have only lasted a little under 3 minutes. Well, Valve has taken notice & has issued a patch already. Here is the details:

  • Darkened the Lighthouse background movie and increased the contrast with the user interface elements
  • Chapter selection is now available when creating a Survival lobby
  • Single player coop now works correctly after playing Survival online
  • The correct game mode will be set when playing back a demo
  • Changed holdout server spew to be development only
  • Stats are no longer updated while viewing a demo
  • Correctly update the leaderboard based on the player’s personal time, not the team best time
  • Show the player’s best time in the scoreboard
  • Removed Survival exploits from The Terminal, Last Stand, The Crane, The Boathouse and The Warehouse
  • Fixed tanks sometimes not spawning after 15-20 minutes
