Left 4 Dead Summary
Over the weekend players discovered a seeming tease for L4D3 coming out of the official Left 4 Dead 2 Facebook page from Valve. Unfortunately, it seems untrue.
We asked people from Fatshark (Warhammer Vermintide 1 and 2) and Rebellion (Zombie Army Trilogy, Sniper Elite, Strange Brigade) why there weren't more 4-player co-op games like Valve's Left 4 Dead.
Though an incredibly in-depth business chat with GameIndustry.biz, Turtle Rock Studios - the group behind Left 4 Dead and Evolve - have revealed that they're working on a new co-op shooter.
Turtle Rock Studios the development studio formerly known as Valve South have been behind games such as Evolve and Left4Dead have a released a new unfinished campaign to Left4Dead.
Is this the game developer equivalent of having a dodgy tab open when your family wants to use your computer? I think it is. Tristan Reidford, conceptual artist at Valve created a tutorial for Valve’s new Destinations Workshop Tools. The tutorial shows a picture of Reidford’s desktop with a Windows 7 menu that clearly shows a folder that reads ‘left4dead3’.
Now before any of you get too excited, Valve could simply be having a little fun. The file that was found in the ‘left4dead3’ folder was named ‘08_directory_fun.png’. As in, we’re having fun look at the directory which is named after game we may be making. To add fuel to the fire, the image showing off the ‘left4dead3’ folder has been poorly edited (once people found it) to remove any traces of it. However, this is the internet, so you know that’s not going to last.
