Valve have released their latest patch to Left 4 Dead today, with an interesting new gameplay tweak and some bug fixes.
The gameplay tweak introduces a new 'fatigue' meter for melee attacks in Versus. It pops up after you begin meleeing and when the bar runs out, you can't melee for a few moments. This looks to be a neat balancing act, as there were a few known cheap tricks to avoid being pounced on by Hunters in some maps, and this new fatigue meter means that melee will be used with caution and more wisely, introducing more skill to the frenetic zombie-shooter.
The update also fixes some issues involving surround sound, a few rare crashes and Boomer vomit not being able to pass through other infected.
Xbox 360 owners will have to wait till April 21st however, as the patch is set to coincide with the release of the Survivor Pack.
