Left 4 Dead 2 Announced

This week is the kick off of E3, the mecca of the video game industry. Microsoft kicked off the event with their press conference filled with their new game announcements. The biggest for horror fans is the announcement of Left 4 Dead 2 due Nov. 17th 2009, and the new full trailer, which you can check out below.

Left 4 Dead 2 is the sequel to the best-selling and critically-acclaimed co-operative multiplayer smash from Valve, creators of the Half-Life, Portal, Team Fortress and Counter-Strike game properties. Left 4 Dead 2 promises to become one of 2009's top-selling games and set a new benchmark for co-operative action games. The title adds melee combat to the award-winning L4D style of play, with items such as a chainsaw, frying pan, axe, baseball bat, and more.

Introducing the AI Director 2.0, L4D's dynamic gameplay is taken to the next level by giving the Director the ability to procedurally change weather effects, world objects, and pathways in addition to tailoring the enemy population, effects, and sounds to match the players' performance. The result is a unique game session custom fitted to provide a satisfying and uniquely challenging experience each time the game is played.

Finally, with new Survivors, boss zombies, weapons, and items, Left 4 Dead 2 offers a much larger game than the original with more co-operative campaigns, more Versus campaigns, maps for Survival mode at launch, and more.

This time around we get melee weapons including a chainsaw, frying pan, baseball bat and an axe. They also promise more co-op campaigns at launch, with more to come!
