Rock Paper Shotgun has an exclusive preview of Left 4 Dead 2. They’re saying it’s going to be a completely new game: new characters, new weapons, new maps, new zombies, and five new campaigns set in Southern United States.
There are now going to be melee weapons. The four revealed so far are the axe, baseball bat, chainsaw, and frying pan. FRYING PAN!
Also a new shotgun, new semi-automatic, and new sniper. And incendiary ammo.
Oh and new special infected too. One of them that has been revealed is the Charger, which is basically a Tank + Common Infected. It has one huge arm that it uses to charge the survivors or use to grab survivors and smash their faces into the floor.
There are also going to be bunch of gameplay changes: a smarter Director, crescendo events changed to prevent players from just sitting in one place, “Gauntlets”, as well as campaigns in the daylight.
The release is set for November 17 of this year! Why so early? I have no idea. The original L4D was released on November 18, 2008, so it’s going to be about a year till the new L4D is out. It still seems kind of early to releasing a sequel. They should probably pump out some new content for the original before they go release a new one.
