The Left 4 Dead 2 team has just released the latest update for the game, which adds Steam Workshop, making it easy to find and install new campaigns, items, clothing, weapons and more with the click of a button. This expands an existing ‘addon’ feature that has long been part of Left 4 Dead 2, but makes it easier to find, install, and keep campaigns up to date.
Content creators have been hard at work creating content for L4D2 but they have just gotten access to the new Workshop, so give them some time to upload their work. But with over 1,000 community campaigns and thousands more items and skins already created for the game, we should see many of these pop up in the Left 4 Dead 2 Workshop in the coming days and weeks (Note: Please don’t upload other people’s work. If a campaign you like isn’t in the Workshop, please nicely ask the creator to post it).
If you are interested in creating content for L4D2, visit the L4D2 wiki page to get started. If you are familiar with the tools but new to the Workshop, make sure to update to the latest version of the Authoring Tools and run the Workshop Manager to see how to upload your content to the Workshop. You can download the Left 4 Dead 2 Authoring tools from the tools tab in Steam and you will find the Workshop manager in the tool’s main menu.
