Bellevue’s Valve piggybacked onto Microsoft’s E3 press conference this morning, which included a glimpse of “Left 4 Dead 2.”
The sequel to Valve’s hit zombie game goes on sale Nov. 17 in versions for the Xbox 360 and PC.
In the teaser video, a group of people fighting off a horde of zombies fires the last bullet as a huge one approaches. After the dreaded click, the screen goes dark, then a chainsaw fires up, introducing one of the game’s new weapons.
Players will also be able to defend themselves with frying pans, axes and baseball bats in the southern-tinged action title.
“With the knowledge gained from creating the original, new technology, and a passionate team, L4D2 will set a new benchmark for cooperative action games,” Valve President Gabe Newell said in the release.
Also new in the game is melee combat “to enable deeper co-operative gameplay.”
