Left 4 Dead 2 Workshop is live - build your own levels

Content creators have already built more than a thousand campaigns, Valve claims

The Left 4 Dead 2 workshop is out of beta mode and fully live for all, developer Valve has announced, allowing players to create their own campaigns, items, clothing and weapons.


Prior to the launch of the Workshop, Valve had enlisted a number of content creators to build their own levels and challenges. According to Valve, there are over 1,000 community campaigns, and thousands more items and skins already created for the game.

These items will appear in the game soon, Valve said.

An update to the Left 4 Dead 2 game adds a new 'Add-ons' section on the main menu, allowing users to go through their catalogue or look for new ones via an online store.

The new addition is part of Valve's wider policy of involving the community with all of their projects. Many other Valve games, in particular Portal 2 and Team Fortress 2, allow users to build their own levels and items.

With the Left 4 Dead 2 Workshop, other players can also rate and discuss content, allowing others to easily find the most popular and talked about.
