Hello and welcome again! If you already forgot about Left 4 dead, we have whole 10 reason to come back!

Today we decided to make a list of all major features of our campaign. All of them are ready to play or complete for more than 50%, so no empty promises. We hope, you'll enjoy it.

  • SEVEN absolutely new maps in both Versus and Campaign modes! -Dip again into the familiar zombie apocalypse universe by Valve. Old heroes, old enemies - a completely new story and experience! We try to maintain and develop an incredible atmosphere created by Turtle Rock Studios for Left 4 Dead. Also we are planing to support the survival mode in the future.
  • A new "Marauder" game mode - Previously unseen new mode combines the best of both Scavenge and Survival modes. The special map, which can be started both for 4 and 8 persons, is available for this new mode.
  • New type of finale - exclusive and not non-linear campaign ending. You must work really hard in order to "escape" ...
  • Twelve brand new Panic Event! Each chapter contains two « Panic Event » (one - «Run and Gun» and other - "Hold the position"). Event type is chosen randomly each time, so every time you play, you get a new experience!
  • Non-linearity - we've very much tried to diverse gameplay in our campaign: the branching paths in the style of l4d2 (available in Chapters 1,3,4), variable Panic Events, random scenes, etc. You'll barelly see half of events during first gameplay session!
  • Dozens of new models and textures, both borrowed from the Valve games (Half-Life 2 and Episodes, Counter-Strike), and completely new made exclusively for our campaign.

  • "Cinematic physics" - you won't forget the massive destruction, which we made using this technology.
  • New mini-plots - lots of little stories about other survivors will help you even deeper plunge into the atmosphere of zombie apocalypse.
  • New Color Correction and particles systems - we use all the features of the engine to give the campaign a totally unique look.
  • Versus - perhaps it's our favorite mode of all, that's why we try to make it more interesting. Our motto: More difficult and interesting gameplay for the survivors! More freedom for infected!

And now we are glad to show you screenshots from the complete version of Chapter 2 - Railroad station:

Impressive stuff. This is a really good reason to re-install L4D, once you unleash it to the public.

Multi paths won't be same big as in map 1 and 4 of "I hate mountains" campaign, but i hope they will be interesting and fun too. Also we will have some "sandbox" type locations, which can be consider as not-linear.
