Valve Confirms Left 4 Dead Demo
Written Thursday, September 11, 2008 By James Parkin

Gabe Newell, managing director and co-founder of Valve, has confirmed plans for an Xbox 360 and PC demo of hotly anticipated zombie shoot-em-up Left 4 Dead.

Newell told VideoGamer.com at Leipzig Games Convention that it will include the first part of one of the four campaign 'movies', probably The Hospital level that has been demonstrated to the press.

He also confirmed that the demo will facilitate online cooperative play as well as single-player, although he couldn't confirm a release date for the demo.

Newell said: "We will be releasing demos for both the Xbox and for the PC. I don't know what the date is for release on that, though. I think it's going to contain the first part of one of the campaigns. I think it'll probably be Hospital but I'm not sure. That's a decision that Doug Lombardi is making."

When asked if you'll be able to play the demo online, Newell replied: "Oh yeah. You'll be able to play single-player and co-op in the demo."

Thats awesome. One of the most highly anticipated games I'm waiting for. Now I get to find out if it sucks before dropping $60.

Valve always makes great games. This is the type of zombie game I've been waiting for.

I have to agree with #18, Splitscreen?

The Full version of the game will have splitscreen. As for the demo, I'm not sure.

I'm not really that bothered about the demo. Unless it comes out loads earlier than the full game I don't think I'm going to bother downloading it, as I will have this game preordered regardless!

#30 I have no idea why you mentioned EA, even then EA isn't all bad.

If you want to yell at somebody, yell at Spark Unlimited or Infinity Ward.

Saints Row was actually a decent game but the online was terrible imo. Im hoping Left 4 Dead is gonna be amazing and if it's not then its gonna be an amazingly bad disaster :(
