Valve has announced Left 4 Dead 2 during the Microsoft Press Conference. Featuring an all new campaign that starts in Savanna, Georgia and stretches to New Orleans you are put in the zombie-blood-stained shoes of four new survivors with original personalities and voices.
Between the trailer and gameplay vidoes we have seen a flurry of new weapons including a fire axe, chain saw, frying pan, baseball bat, silenced uzi, a new shotgun and incendiary rounds. Though that all looks good I dont see the point in it. Why use a frying pan when you could use a gun?
Between the sniper, machine gun and shotgun from the original game, all your needs are covered. These new weapons just feel like needless extras thrown in to justify the new release. After all Left 4 Dead came out Nov 17,08 and the planned release date for Left 4 Dead 2 is exactly one year later – Nov 17, 09.
