There's been a lot of anticipation for Valve's survival horror first person shooting four player co-op title Left 4 Dead Yes, that's the genre. As we make our ways through the halls of E3, we had a chance to sit down and play the Xbox 360 and PC title, and let me tell you, it's going to meet expectations.
The basic premise of the game puts players in the role of one of four characters as they try to survive endless hordes of zombies. Obviously team work is crucial, and there are many times we found ourselves having to help a comrade out. Whether he was being overrun by a pack of zombies like a swarm of bugs, reviving a fallen teammate, or covering each other's backs; the co-op nature of the game is very apparent from the get go.
The game looks absolutely gorgeous with this gritty and grainy stylized filter being applied to the dark enviornments of the game. Everything about the atmosphere of the game from graphics to sound to lighting ooozes style. Left 4 Dead will be available on the PC and Xbox 360 this fall and support 4 player co-op online.
We absolutely loved what we played of Left 4 Dead. The game promises a ton of replayability using the in game AI Director that dynamically places weapons, ammo and bad guys depending on how your team is doing. If this is pulled off well, the game is sure to have a long life.
And now, something special. We've got an exclusive hi-resolution video of the game. All I can tell you is...don't shoot the car alarm. Hit the Read More link to view it.
