Watch here at Gamer.Ninja as Oran1 offers up some great gameplay that involves killing zombies in his latest YouTube release. Oran1 gives us an inside look into the Going Ballistic map for Left 4 Dead 2:

There is an interesting story behind this map. It seems it was designed by a group of 28 students from the University of Baltimore. Here is the story behind that:

Going Ballistic was created over the course of a single semester by 28 University of Baltimore students. The class was designed to simulate a work environment. Students were divided into nine half-teams, each responsible for one half of one of the five levels in the campaign. The instructor developed the last half-level. The project was managed by the instructor, with the help of five student managers. At the beginning of the project, no student in the class had any prior experience with Hammer, the editor used to develop Left 4 Dead 2 levels. As such, students had to teach themselves to use the editing software while completing their weekly milestones.

Here is the original Going Ballistic campaign trailer:

  1. Great write up. It’s interesting to see and hear about the groups of people that go to great lengths to create community content. With the modding community gaming wouldn’t be as good as it is today. Nice work
