After nearly five years of work, I'm happy to bring you my custom campaign: Day Break!
The survivors must escape San Francisco before the military bombs it! After their helicopter crashes on the roof of Day Break Inn & Suites, the survivors must make their way out of the city, across the Golden Gate bridge, and hopping on a boat to Alcatraz for rescue.
This is a five map campaign, designed and playtested for co-op and versus gamemodes, with a scavenge-style finale with a few added quirks. NOTE: Turn on instructor hints, as they will help you with some of the unfamiliar aspects for some of the events!
The survivors pass by many real-world places and landmarks on their way. While I have tried to be as true to the real San Francisco as possible, I have had to take some liberties with the area to make it suitable for Left 4 Dead 2 co-op and versus gameplay. That being said, I have tried to be as detailed and accurate as possible when it comes to landmarks (which include The Palace Of Fine Arts, Fort Point, The Golden Gate Bridge, the Lime Point Lighthouse, and Alcatraz Island) using all the resources available to me.
While I have put a lot of work into this, and have done plenty of playtesting, this is by no means perfect, and I will likely continue to update it in the future to fix any bugs players find or to make adjustments based on players' suggestions and the general feedback that I get on it. So feedback & suggestions are very welcome!
Credits: Although this is primarily a solo project (and my hobby of the past four and half years during spare time while simultaneously pursuing a career in astrophysics), I want to thank everyone who was supportive of the project from its very beginning and offered their advice and time to help the campaign along, as well as the people who contributed a few custom assets to the project. There are too many people to list here, but I've included at the bottom of this description a short list of credits for any custom-made models that I did not make myself. For rest, thank you so much! You know who you are :)
