VideoGamer.com is reporting that Valve has confirmed a Left 4 Dead demo is in the works for both the Xbox 360 and PC versions of the title. Valve president Gabe Newell commented that most likely the demo would be the first part of the 4 part story, which is the hospital level. If you played the game at PAX or Leipzig then you'll be familiar with this level as it was the one on display. While this might disappoint some, I can tell you from personal experience that after watching dozens and dozens of gameplay sessions, no two ever go the same.
Of course the best news of all is the demo will contain single player and co-op multiplayer modes. I just hope this comes sooner rather than later, November 20th is such a long long way away.
Thank to the many many Co-Optimus members that sent this into our tips line!
