Your game should update automatically through Steam. The DLC brings the following features and fixes:
  • New gameplay Mode - Survival Mode
  • 16 maps including Last Stand
  • Leaderboards & 7 new achievements

Versus Changes
  • 2 new versus campaigns
  • Fixed a case where versus team score would continue to be recalculated after the score panel was displayed
  • Fixed an issue with recalculating the versus score health bonus for a player when they are rescued from being incapacitated
  • Fixed being able to start a swing as an infected, then teleport to the survivors and have the claw swing hit a survivor
  • Fixed a case where teleporting to the survivors would not reset the ability timer
  • Fixed an exploit where you could load the chamber of a weapon with bullets by holding down the melee key
  • Fixed a case where it was not possible to join a game while it was in a finale
  • Fixed a rare case where listen servers would speed up the game over time
  • Removed convars related to melee fatigue
  • Fixed a case where infected players would get a respawn time on their initial spawn into a map
Go get playing and post your best times for 'Last Stand' Lighthouse map! Full update here

This is sweet. I'm stuck at work for another hour and a half, though!

Yeah Survival mode, at least for me, was fun for a half an hour. I only played on the lighthouse map btw. I survived for 6min and I pretty much recorded it. The real gem of this update is Dead Air on Versus. The SDK was also never mentioned to be in this update as well.

I thought I read somewhere they were releasing the sdk with this patch. I don't understand why they don't make releasing it more of a priority.

I love it! It puts a lot more emphasis on teamwork than the other modes. Pure chaotic fun. Kudos to Valve! Now, all we need is the SDK so that mappers can start churning out some new campaigns.

What are the 16 new maps?
Individual chapters from campaigns have been re-tooled for Survivor mode i.e. the Construction Site from Dead Air, the Boathouse Finale from Death Toll...

I thought all 20 had been adapted, although, that doesn't really work now that I think about it. Which ones are out?

I did too, but I think it's only maps with crescendos. Off the top of my head that means the train bridge from Blood Harvest is out (which is a shame), the Streets/Apartment and Subway Tunnel from No Mercy, the Turnpike from Death Toll and the Greenhouse from Dead Air.

I think anyway.

I just checked a second ago, and you're pretty much right, but the subway is on there (generator room) so one other must be lacking.

Oh yeah, I forgot that Generator Room was part of Subway. Umm...
