The new Left 4 Dead 2 multiplayer mode is revealed. It’s called Scavenge and it tasks survivors with collecting gas cans and refilling a generator while Infected try to prevent same. It’s supposed to be fast and furious. (Kotaku)

While previewing the L4D2 Scavenge mode, the folks at 1Up noticed a new option called Realism, which they learned is for the super hardcore player — details are scarce, but I bet it will make you cry. (1Up)

Also, the edited/toned-down version of Left 4 Dead 2 has been approved and rated in Australia, so zombie killers Down Under need no longer fear being left out of the party. (Kotaku)

Additional casting details and a synopsis have emerged for Resident Evil: Afterlife. The basics: There are zombies, Alice is still fighting them, she gets help from some old friends, it’s in LA and there’s a trap. (Bloody Disgusting)
