It’s been ten years after the release of Left 4 Dead 2’s without any significant signature update on its way. For a whole decade, the fans have been pushed to find ways to entertain themselves and destroy hordes of zombies in different L4D2 scenarios. The Last Stand Update for Left 4 Dead 2 is scheduled to release on September 24th, and the official trailer already shows a couple of the upcoming changes.
As per Steam’s official Discussion, the Project Lead of the community standing behind the Last Stand update has confirmed that the update arrives on September 24th. This update will be solely available on the PC platform, and Valve seems to have no part in this big community update.

- Previously unused voice lines
- Brand new melee weapons
- PvP fixes and enhancements
- and other surprising changes
