What is Left 4 Dead 2?
Set in the zombie apocalypse, Left 4 Dead 2 (L4D2) is the highly anticipated sequel to the award-winning Left 4 Dead, the #1 co-op game of 2008.
This co-operative action horror FPS takes you and your friends through the cities, swamps and cemeteries of the Deep South, from Savannah to New Orleans across five expansive campaigns.
You'll play as one of four new survivors armed with a wide and devastating array of classic and upgraded weapons. In addition to firearms, you'll also get a chance to take out some aggression on infected with a variety of carnage-creating melee weapons, from chainsaws to axes and even the deadly frying pan.
You'll be putting these weapons to the test against (or playing as in Versus) three horrific and formidable new Special Infected. You'll also encounter five new uncommon common infected, including the terrifying Mudmen.
Helping to take L4D's frantic, action-packed gameplay to the next level is AI Director 2.0. This improved Director has the ability to procedurally change the weather you'll fight through and the pathways you'll take, in addition to tailoring the enemy population, effects, and sounds to match your performance. L4D2 promises a satisfying and uniquely challenging experience every time the game is played, custom-fitted to your style of play.
Next generation co-op action gaming from the makers of Half-Life, Portal, Team Fortress and Counter-Strike
Over 20 new weapons & items headlined by over 10 melee weapons – axe, chainsaw, frying pan, baseball bat – allow you to get up close with the zombie

AI Director 2.0: Advanced technology dubbed The AI Director drove L4D's unique gameplay – customizing enemy population, effects, and music, based upon the players’ performance. L4D 2 features The AI Director 2.0 which expands the Director’s ability to customize level layout, world objects, weather, and lighting to reflect different times of day.

Links to the game on various social media and steam:
This game still has a fairly high player base. Especially considering how old this game is.
I still play this every now and then. The multiplayer mode was fun. You get to play as zombies. There's a similar game called "VerminTide" based off of the warhammer world. Cool weapon upgrade system. Friendly fire when playing on "nightmare" difficulty. Total "spin off" from the gameplay aspect just different characters, setting and maps.
I used to play this game on the xbox. It has a pretty good muilti-player mode but I have only played the single player.
Love the game, looking forward to potential spin up!

We are bringing this game back into TAW. It is now a tier 4 team down in Horizon. If you play this or just looking to usher in some old memories come down and play with our team. You could make some new friends and have a great time killing some zombies. Killing zombies never gets old. We still have some staff position open. If interest please contact Markoo or any member of VG staff, or fill out the interest form linked HERE.
I will look for you all periodically. I have almost 1000 hours played in each L4D 1 and 2. I would love to play some games.
