If there is one setting that is perfect for a game focused on mowing down countless waves of the undead, it is the iconic Lord of the Rings fortress, Helms Deep. It is truly a match made in heaven, but the map has not been made available on the Left 4 Dead 2 official servers…until now.
In addition to fixing consistency issues when playing on dedicated servers, Valve was nice enough to add -Helm’s Deep- Reborn to the official servers in their latest update.
Now you can defend the good people of Middle Earth and attempt to survive until the arrival of Gandalf (yes, there is actually an ending to the survival map). Some of the features include competitive scoreboards, movie-based events, NPC’s that fight with you and balance the game, random enemy spawns and strategically placed items like mounted machine guns and explosive traps.
So take up arms and melee aggressive undead with longswords, or just wreck shop using the always effective tactical shotgun and grenade launcher…..yes, it is as much fun as it sounds.
Created by SeriouS_Samurai and Team chivalry, this is a great experience for anyone who is a fan of LotR. To get the map, simply go to Steam Workshop or just head directly to the Helms Deep Reborn page and click subscribe.
What do you think of this Lord of the Rings themed map?
