Written Saturday, April 24, 2010 By Dan WebbView author's profile
Those pesky code monkeys have been at it again, this time pilfering through the Left 4 Dead 2 Steam code of this week's The Passing downloadable content.
The Mutation mode, which is a weekly changing DLC game mode, is currently playing the Realism Versus game type and is set to feature the already confirmed Chainsaw Massacre in the coming weeks, but a Steam forum goer by the name of Thegreenthing16 has uncovered a load more of names and details of possible upcoming Mutation game types.
The list and details from the Steam forums are as follows:
First Man Out
Four Swords Men
Head Shots Only
Last Man One Earth
No Health Versus
Guard the Gnome: Mutation9
-Gnome spawns at the beginning, you need to to make it through the levels.
-Zombies go after the person carrying the gnome.
Bleeding Out: Mutation3
-No Medkits, only pills.
-You start with temporary health that goes down fast.
-Lots of pills.
-Lots of random panic events.
The Mutation mode is easily one of The Passing's selling points and we hope that these turn out to be legitimate variations that Valve puts into practice in the coming months. Especially Guard the Gnome. Yes, I have a gnome obsession.
