Meet the Fallen Survivor

February 13th, 2010 7 comments

News has been announced that the Fallen Survivor will feature in the next DLC, ‘The Passing’, for Left 4 Dead 2.

This particular zombie once believed himself to be immune to the infection, but was quite obviously very wrong as he joins the opposition and goes out on the hunt for some tasty human. Although he may look somewhat similar to a regular Common Infected, there are some factors which distinguish this zombie from all the rest. He will at times drop items such as medikits and ammo when killed, and is somewhat particularly easy to spot and differentiate from the other zombies due to his completely different attire, so in fact is not much like the other infected at all.

It has also been announced that the regular Left 4 Dead 2 characters will be hooking up with the Left 4 Dead 1 guys in the third map of ‘The Passing’ Campaign. It is said that we will also be learning a lot more about the Left 4 Dead 1 characters, and will see their more intimate and personal side of things through their tough journey through the zombie apocalypse.

One thing’s for sure, I certainly can’t wait for this DLC to drop around the rumoured time of March.

“Don’t worry, we’ll make more”

February 11th, 2010 1 comment

The Left 4 Dead 2 team over at Valve just posted the following statement on their Steam Community Page:

In the first two months of Left 4 Dead 2′s release, 28,981,249,043 zombies have been shot, bludgeoned, chainsawed and killed — or, for our younger readers, taken to a farm where they can frolic and shuffle around forever.

You read that correctly: 28 BILLION. To put that number in perspective:

  • The entire population of the planet has been zombified and killed 4.26 times.
  • With the average height of a zombie being 6 feet, if you stacked them end to end they would circle the globe 1,322 times.
  • If you placed 28,981,249,043 rulers end to end, they would reach 28,981,249,043 feet in the sky.

In short: That is a bucketload of dead zombies. Nice job, everyone.
