Beginner’s Guide to Left 4 Dead

New to the world of Left 4 Dead? You’ve come to the right place! Our guide is here to bring you up to speed on everything you need to know about this heart-pounding survival horror shooter developed by Valve Corporation on the Source engine.

Left 4 Dead thrusts players into a multiplayer cooperative experience where they must band together as the Survivors against hordes of AI-controlled Infected. Four players take on the roles of Survivors, navigating through rural and urban environments across various campaigns while battling fast-moving zombies reminiscent of those seen in “28 Days Later.” But it’s not just mindless undead they’ll face; there are also four player-controlled “boss zombies” with unique abilities that add an extra layer of chaos and excitement to the mix.

Scheduled for release on November 4, 2008, for PC and Xbox 360, Left 4 Dead promises an entirely fresh co-op experience that will keep players on the edge of their seats.
