Left 4 Dead Trailer And Delay


Having spent the weekend co-op gaming at a mini journo-LAN this weekend, I've got the taste for fighting alongside my chums. Left 4 Dead, which I've played a couple of times now, has had a similar effect each time I've experienced it, and the reason is that it's a game which insists that you help each other. Finding games in which working with your friends is essential to victory is actually rather tricky - any number of co-op games are actually just you playing a single player game in which your friends happen to be. In Left 4 Dead you don't just happen to be shooting the same targets, you're pulling each other up from where you've fallen, rescuing injured members from where they are trapped in rubble or locked rooms, or blasting zombie swarms away from a stricken comrade. It's thrilling, because you can really mess up and get someone else killed. The Leipzig trailer appears after the jump.

Left 4 Dead has suffered a small delay and will now be out on 29th of November 2008.
