Valve has announced that nearly a half million members of the Left 4 Dead 2 (L4D2) community have voted to add a permanent new Mutation (game mode) to L4D2; Realism Versus.

Realism Versus combines the rules of Versus and Realism Modes to create a Versus game that requires the best in Survivor teamwork.

Following the release of L4D2 DLC ‘The Passing’ last month, L4D2 has seen weekly new Mutations released every Friday. The response to Realism Versus was so overwhelming that a poll asking if the mutation should be made permanent was created.

This week’s Mutation, “Follow the Liter,” sees a change in the rules of ‘Scavenge’. Only one group of cans spawn at a time, so survivors know exactly where to go. There is only one problem; the Infected know exactly where they are going.

The weekly Mutations are available to all owners of Left 4 Dead 2’s “The Passing” DLC.
