Valve seeks to bring PC players' Left 4 Dead 2 mods to 360


Valve is hopeful it can find a way to make user-generated content from the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2 available to Xbox 360 users, the company told OXM UK. "One of the things I'd like to do is to allow these modules that are being released on PC to somehow integrate with Microsoft's system," Yasser Mailaka, a "team player" at the developer said.

He's talking about custom campaigns made with L4D2's PC-only mod tools, which we're certain will be put to use straight away turning the game's zombies into all manner of famous people and copyrighted characters (ie: Shaun of the Dead). At least Valve won't have a proble-- hold on, what's this? "
We'll have to filter them, we can't allow any copyrighted materials, so it's going to have to go through a process," Mailaka pointed out, dashing our dreams of escaping from not one, but hordes of shambling Andy Dicks.

Mailaka said that Valve is "hoping perhaps we can shepherd the really popular campaigns onto 360. And you know, if they are a paid system, perhaps that could go back to the authors. I think that would be a great story." You know what, it would -- but so would a mod where you have to avoid being trampled at Walmart on Black Friday. Hey, that sounds like a good L4D campaign: "Black Friday ... Escape or Die Buying."
