Zombie Panic: Source is a co-op oriented Survivor Vs Zombie multi-player survival horror modification for HL2. While our main priority is to make the mod as fun to play as possible, ZP:S plans to greatly expand on the core features of "Zombie panic" For HL1, with the obvious new features, impressive visuals, and of course atmospheric maps. More importantly ZP:S will not force players to fend against dumb and predictable AI, but instead keep the same intense thrill of surviving against intelligent and persistent player controlled zombies as the original.

Why the hell does Valve do this to Mods? Remember the Team Fortress 2 demo? That kinda killed off Fortress Forever's hype. Now the Left 4 Dead 2 Demo has come out! Today! God now I don't know what to play. L4D2 or ZPS 2.0!?

Play both. ZPS and L4D2 are very very much apart as to gameplay. Of course l4d2 did add in melee weapons so maybe l4d3 will be kill off zps! OH NOES! heh It's halloween and everyones releasing. L4D1 didn't hurt ZPS so we'll see :) Already working on our next patch as well.

RockerFox Oct 29 2009 replied:

well they are 2 different games when you look at them. L4D2 is more cinematic and is more along the lines of run like hell, take a breather and run again with a ton of ai zombies in-front and behind you. Also L4D2 feels a bit more team dependent as in you use your teammates for things other then extra guns or extra zombie claws. ZP:S seems a bit more objective based and more into horror then into the constant action (again, individual stalker player zombies rather then giant 50 infected hoards). And finally in ZP:S it looks like more of an open are most of the time rather then a bunch of paths from point "A" to "B". I wish the best of luck to both games anyway.

frikazoyd Oct 28 2009 replied:

Those are only in ZPA. The features listed with a .- are all ZPA-specific.

Wounding is just a gradual loss of life.

I haven't noticed much change so far in the mod. Then again, i only played for 10 minutes on one map and server. But it does look good.

Played ZPS ages ago and it was still pretty rough (in gameplay aswell), but now it looks awesome. Think it's time to download.
And the new mode sounds better than the new scavenger mode in l4d2, so grats on that :)
