Left 4 Dead Twice…Simultaneously

With the recent furore surrounding the announced and imminent Zombie-Slashing sequel, Left 4 Dead 2, Valve are trying to appease their fanbase – including the boycott group which has now grown to be 37,000 members strong – by attempting to implement a level of cross-compatibility between players on Left 4 Dead and players on Left 4 Dead 2.

Valve’s VP of Marketing also gives insight to possible MOD’s that will interchangeable between the two titles:

“With the MOD stuff, if you’re making stuff for Left 4 Dead it will work in Left 4 Dead 2 with very minor amounts of work to bring it over. So we feel we’ve made good steps on that side and now we’re looking at how we manage that for folks who buy the first game and sequel.”

The idea of cross-playable games is intriguing and I look forward to seeing if this plan comes to fruition.

Sam has been unable to peel his bloodshot eyes and RSI-ridden wrists from the world of gaming since he was first introduced to it, like all good junkies, by his Grandad. From those early days of MegaDrive sweetness, bashing through the throngs of enemies on Shining Force II, his love of all things games has extended upwards and outwards onto a variety of platforms. You can either believe that spiel, or get the real scoop and know that his spaceship actually crashed here some years ago and he is currently incognito as a games writer for Console Monster.
