Featured campaigns are Custom Campaigns for Left 4 Dead 2 that were elected by Valve for their outstanding quality. Featured campaigns are uploaded to all official dedicated servers for an unspecified amount of time. They are announced in blog posts with a short description and a link to the download.

Featured Campaigns are presumed to remain on official servers indefinitely (except Dead Before Dawn; see below). Valve will attempt to keep the most up-to-date version of a featured campaign uploaded to the servers.

As of May 4, 2011, campaigns can be downloaded reliably from an official host, and a list of previously featured campaigns is maintained on the blog.[1]

"The new featured campaign is City 17. If it seems familiar, it should, it is based on Half-Life 2: Episode 1. While it is may be lacking Gordon, Alyx, and Barney it’s not lacking zombies. And no, they aren't your head-crab induced zombies, these are full on Left 4 Dead 2 zombies. This 5 map campaign offers great Coop and Versus gameplay."
