Left 4 Dead and Payday: The Heist crossover revealed: heist in No Mercy hospital

Valve and Overkill have just revealed the crossover between Left 4 Dead and Payday: The Heist - it's a Payday level set in Mercy Hospital - the scene of the outbreak in Left 4 Dead (Left 4 Dead, PAYDAY: The Heist, PC, PS3, Valve, Xbox 360)

I can only hope that this collaboration between Valve and Overkill will soon lead to a L4D and L4D2 release on PS3.

L4D and L4D2 have been out for 3 and 4 years now. If you're still waiting on a PS3 release of them, you're probably going to be disappointed :\
guitarded77  +   1078d ago
Not necessarily. The L4D series is still relevant and if Valve did decide to release a L4D 1 and 2 dual pack for let's say $40, I think there would be plenty of people that haven't played the games lining up.

ive 100 percented l4d2 on xbox and i can honestly say that i would get the game fopr ps3. The game series is very much still played by a significant community size.

Lol, what guitarded77 said. It's still relevant because the many people who haven't played it on PS3 and don't want to play it on PC (because their friends are on PSN) would still pick it up.

"I'm sure the guys at Valve have better things to do than worry about porting their 4 year old games to the PS3"

Haha. Like I said, considering the amount of interest for it on PS3 and the fact that Valve and Sony have become good pals, this would probably make a lot of money for them. I still don't see WHY NOT?????????

why the hell is there an xbox tag??? this game is NOT on the xbox.
srcBFMVBMTH  +   1078d ago
Well, considering this is "the beginning" of Left 4 Dead and Valve and Sony have pretty much become pals. We'll probably see a port or maybe even an updated verion of L4D and L4D2 on PS3. This would sell like CRAZY so I don't see why not.

Any gamer that has any interest in L4D has probably already gotten it on PC or Xbox. On Steam, L4D has hit $2.50 in some sales, and unless you have a PC from 2005, you should be able to run it without much trouble.

I'm sure the guys at Valve have better things to do than worry about porting their 4 year old games to the PS3...

@Pandamobile I've had interest in the L4D series ever since the first came out and first saw gameplay video of it. I just don't have a PC that can play it, let alone any game for that matter. I also don't plan in slapping down a few hundred bucks on a xbox 360 when I know Microsoft is going to release another system by next year. If Valve decided to put the series on PS3 I can guarantee them it would be a day 1 purchase.
AgreeFairy  +   1077d ago
I could buy it on PC but it I won't because it would be pointless since all my friends are on PS3. I hear L4D1 was good but L4D2 sucked. They should make L4D3 like how L4D1 was and release it on PS3.
SpaceDesperado  +   1077d ago
You guys realize it's just a level in the already made game Payday The Heist? As well as that L4D can be played on pretty much every gaming pc? PS3 fanboys whine too much about anything related to 360.
user5467007  +   1078d ago
Is this actually cannon

If it is then what a f*cking joke, there really doing a crossover with Payday which will tell us how it all started which was a heist...thought they could come up with something a little bit better then that. Just seems like there just doing for the sake of it.

Why do something silly like this when the "outbreak" story could of been kept for a possible future L4D game.

What kind of original story were you hoping for? A rogue scientist develops some experiment-gone-bad, and it spreads to the rest of the world and everyone becomes zombies?
user5467007  +   1078d ago
Something that actually seems to fit with the L4D universe. It just comes off as Payday
r21  +   1078d ago
dude, its just a lil crossover, whats the harm :L
user5467007  +   1078d ago
Because at one time with L4D it used to be a pretty serious Zombie game and now it just seems to be this light hearted franchise where we have crossovers and get to kill a tank with a frying pan...I mean really.
AbyssGravelord  +   1078d ago
Dude it's just a crossover, do you know what a crossover is? It's more than likely not cannon and even if it was it's not like L4D was ever a GRIMDARK game with heavy emphasis on story.
r21  +   1078d ago
@D3athTillDawn exactly
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1078d ago
@MikeCosgrove - Left 4 Dead has always been far from serious. They use movie posters for each campaign, dude.
Dispy  +   1078d ago
I think this is great, this doesn't mean this was how it started, just in the same timezone as before the zombie outbreak. I think it's great
araman  +   1078d ago
I'm betting this is just a level for the summer sale or the holiday sale - nothing more :P
supraking951  +   1078d ago
lol L4D series only thing PS3 owners want from that tiny list of 360 exclusives.

Ahhhh Rikimaru... LEGEND!!!
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1078d ago
Sweet! I love L4D and I love Payday also! I would love to see L4D on the PS3, but I won't hold my breath. It's just that I own Payday on PS3 and L4D on PC. :/
AgreeFairy  +   1077d ago
This is stupid. Why would you rob a hospital? That doesn't make sense at all. Payday The Heist just keeps getting worse with every update.
Lord_Sloth  +   1077d ago
They're getting a blood sample. They don't ask their employers for the "why" or anything.
