About

Left 4 Dead is a co-op first person shooter game developed and published by Valve. It takes place in an apocalyptic world brought about by the “green flu” which causes those afflicted to suffer from grotesque, zombie-like mutations and aggression. The first game takes place in Pennsylvania, while the second game takes place in Atlanta and Louisville.

History

The game was released on November 17, 2008 for Microsoft Windows and Xbox 360, and September 27, 2010 for Mac OS X.

Gameplay

The game has four game modes:

  • Campaign: Up to four players cooperatively play through different stages attempting to make it to rescue with safe points along the way.
  • Versus: Two teams, one consisting of the survivors trying to make it to the end of the level, and another consisting of the infected trying to stop them, fight against each other, switching off each chapter
  • Survival: Up to four players attempt to survive against an endless hoard of infected for as long as they can.
  • Single-player: Identical to the campaign only instead of other players, the other three survivors are Bots.

Characters

There are four characters in the first game referred to as the Survivors.

  • Bill: A Vietnam veteran.
  • Louis: A system’s analyst at an information technology company.
  • Zoey: A horror movie buff and college freshman.

Sequel

On November 17, 2009, a year after the first game was released, Valve launched Left 4 Dead 2 for Microsoft Windows and Xbox 360, and September 10, 2010 for Mac OS X.

Characters

In L4D2, a brand new cast of Survivors were featured.

  • Coach: A high school football coach.
  • Nick: A cynical gambler and con artist.
  • Rochelle: A television journalist.
  • Ellis: A friendly, talkative redneck mechanic who tells stories about his times with his friend Keith.
