For those of you who haven't been keeping track: Left 4 Dead's fresh new "Survival" mode drops alongside the final two maps remaining for Versus mode,the week of the 21st of April. This update coincides with the XBox 360 release which promises bugfixes and additional performance tweaks.

Unofficially, as many of us have come to expect, this also will be accompanied by a string of Steam service outtages and wonky behavior. Expect gnashing of teeth next week as is customary for most Valve Steam DLC patchings.

Valve has also updated the L4D blog with information about the survival mode. Two interesting points of note: 1) "Given the extreme pace of Survival Mode, the number of zombies killed in a single round often outnumbers an entire campaign." and 2) Look at the graph on that page holy cow. If you're alive at 15 minutes, you won't be at 15 minutes and 1 second.
