DO NOT POST OPENLY ABOUT THE FINALE, PUT IT IN SPOILERS OR THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES AND REPERCUSSIONS

CHECK THIS MOTHERFUCKER OUT, FIRST OF SEVERAL, DESIGNED BY OUR VERY OWN BEAVOTRON FOR VALVE

The Passing was released today! It's up on Steam and maybe Xbox Live, but you gotta pay for it there.

In addition to the new 3-part campaign 'The Passing,' Valve has introduced Mutations. What are Mutations? Basically, Valve is testing out new and unusual game modes. The first one is Realism Versus. It's exactly what it sounds like. Next week is Chainsaw Massacre, where the Survivors all have access to chainsaws with unlimited fuel. I guess after a few have made the rounds, Valve is going to open up voting so player-favorites get thrown back into the mix.

There's also a new Uncommon Infected, the Fallen Survivor!
Spoiler:

I got a chance to play a hectic run of the new campaign and it's a bunch of fun. There's even a number of interesting easter eggs!

    I'd venture a guess that if there's one or two that are super mega popular they'd be rolled in as new official game modes in the next big update/DLC

    I played this when I was super tired and didn't enjoy it much, I should play it again. I kept on getting lost. The only thing I know I legitimately didn't like (as opposed to just not enjoying because I was almost comatose) is the finale, because the bots don't help with the fuel and it is looooooong

    the fallen survivor can get pubs murdered

    i was playing with a bunch of pubs (i know, i can hear some of you saying "well there's your first mistake" but whatever) and more than once some jack-off ran away from the group a significant distance to chase a fallen survivor because he needed a medpack or something.

    the fact that the fallen survivors run away from you is kind of a cool touch.
