L4D2 promises to set a new benchmark for co-operative action games and become one of 2009's marquee titles, adding melee combat to enable deeper co-operative gameplay, with items such as a chainsaw, frying pan, axe, baseball bat, and more.
Last Man On Earth, mixes up the award winning multiplayer gameplay for a more solitary pursuit, removing the co-op aspect and instead a sole Survivor with no bot companions is pitted against an army of Special Infected.
The L4D2 team is encouraging players to submit their best 60-second clip of playing Last Man on Earth to YouTube so everyone can share in their single player accomplishments.
If you still crave company, all other game modes are always available including the recently unveiled Realism Versus.
Weekly Mutations are available to all owners of "The Passing" DLC on PC and Xbox 360. Each week a brand new Mutation is made available.
Introducing the AI Director 2.0, L4D's dynamic gameplay is taken to the next level by giving the Director the ability to procedurally change weather effects, world objects, and pathways in addition to tailoring the enemy population, effects, and sounds to match the players' performance. The result is a unique game session custom fitted to provide a satisfying and uniquely challenging experience each time the game is played.
In addition to the new campaign and boss monster L4D2 also includes "Mudmen," the "uncommon common" exclusive to the Swamp Fever campaign, and a few more of the 20-plus new items coming in the full product (cricket bat, AK47, and grenade launcher).
Featuring new Survivors, boss zombies, weapons, and items, Left 4 Dead 2 offers a much larger game than the original with more co-operative campaigns, more Versus campaigns, and maps for Survival mode available at launch.
