Left 4 Dead 2 came out some 11 years ago, and yet here we are, getting one final update in the form of The Last Stand. According to Valve's announcement, The Last Stand update was exclusively created by the L4D community and there are new maps, new weapons, new game modes and many more.

Reading the official patch notes for this upgrade shows that there are more than 1,000 changes made across the whole game with the execution of the upgrade. Now, players can actually look forward to escaping the impending doom.

Cancel your weekend plans, because Left 4 Dead 2 is back, baby.

Besides this new effort, you will find 26 brand new Survival maps which players may hold out for as long as you can. The shovel and the pitchfork will give you more options when up close with the hordes.

Left 4 Dead 2 just got a massive free update, and it’s free to play this weekend

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to get the old gang back together. Other quality-of-life improvements include new animations, new dialogue, and more infected models from the first game.

The update makers have promised that they are working on a solution on the problems, and Valve itself has also noted that a fix for the controller issue is also coming. Reading all the changes can be boring, so you might as well jump into the game and see for yourself.

As a launch promotion, Valve has made "Left 4 Dead 2" free to play for the duration of the weekend, and for anyone who wants to keep playing beyond Sunday, the game is available for just $2 on Steam. Left 4 Dead 2 will continue to be free-to-play until September 27.

The Last Stand is a fan-developed project that Valve has officially endorsed and released - presumably because it can only commit to making about one game every ten years on its own.
