It won’t surprise you to learn that City 17 is one of Left 4 Dead 2’s most popular mod campaigns. Now it’s arrived on Steam Workshop, all it takes is a cursory push of the ‘Subscribe’ button to revisit a version of Viktor Antonov’s totalitarian masterpiece populated by a very different set of monsters.
The mod features environments and music adapted from Half Life 2: Episode 1, and takes players through an artfully devastated city centre to the train station, where they’ll make their escape.
In case of crashes, the mod’s creator – known as よし よし – recommends turning off any other add-ons you might be running and checking the integrity of your game files. And one more thing: City 17 reportedly works best without modded servers. Download it here.
