Valve Corporation launches ‘Left 4 Dead‘ Tuesday, Nov 18
Valve Corporation with help of its supporter LAN Knights will be releasing their new game ‘Left 4 Dead‘, a multiplayer co-operative survival horror first-person shooter, Tuesday night in USA.
Left 4 Dead is a game that venerates zombie movies throughout the ages, from George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead to Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later. In the game, the 4 players must battle a zombie apocalypse with a simple goal, never try to kill the immortal horde, when trying to survive is hard enough.
Left 4 Dead puts four players or AI controlled survivors of an apocalyptic pandemic against hordes of aggressive “Infected” zombies in a cinematic backdrop in which the players “star” as each character in a fictional movie. The Survivors’ goal is to help each other make it through various scenarios to safety. The Infected are controlled by an AI that dynamically balances difficulty and mood depending on the players’ progress and situation. In an alternate game mode, human players can control up to four different monsters with special abilities and cooperate to stop the Survivor players.
The game uses the Source game engine, it can be operated with Microsoft Windows-based personal computers and the Xbox 360.
Left 4 Dead is going to be released in Europe on November 21,2008.
