Left 4 Dead has a soft spot in the hearts of the team here at Co-Optimus. Maybe it is because of the four-player co-op, maybe it's the ability to play as zombies. No matter the reason, we have given the title a good deal of interest. So has Shacknews, which recently featured an interview with Valve's Doug Lombardi. The interview does not just concern Left 4 Dead, but there are some good tidbits of information. First, the game has a probable release date: November 2008. Secondly, the game will likely have a demo, though of course details in the interview are scarce. There is more in the interview, which you might want to check out.
