Left 4 Dead 3 Shows Up on Steam

Further to our earlier article, which showed a leaked image of an internal Valve change log mentioning Left 4 Dead 3, we have now found yet more evidence to suggest that a third entry into the zombie horde series is on it's way. (Industry, Left 4 Dead 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Another reason for me to get an Xbox 360. Need to play the first two games.
Murad  +   337d ago
If you have a PC, I suggest you get that. The campaign from the first is implemented into the second, thus saving you money.
Kamikaze135  +   338d ago
I hope it gets released soon!
Summons75  +   338d ago
Oh man, I don't even wanna imagine the s***storm that will follow if they game game valve releases after learning the number 3 exsists is L4d and not Half Life 3.....fanboys will be raging.

*puts popcorn in microwave*

What are the chances of l4d3 comming out on the next gen consoles?
IanVanCheese  +   338d ago
A lot of rumours have been saying it could be a PC/Xbox One exclusive, though nothing concrete yet. Personally I see it being on both the PS4 and Xbox One.
Fishy Fingers  +   338d ago
A lot of rumours? N4G comments aren't rumours.

The game has barely been confirmed and initial evidence leaked less than 12 hours ago. There is zero platform information at this time. Valve typically don't Aline themselves with any specific platform other than PC. Best bet would be multiplatform, with similar architecture there is no reason for them to favour one system over another.
IanVanCheese  +   338d ago
Fishy Fingers: Money is a reason, if MS throw enough at them it will stay exclusive.

Like I said I think it will be multiplatform though.
Deadpoolio  +   337d ago
With Gabe and his dislike of Xbox one and Windows 8 I highly doubt it would be an exclusive...It will be lick if it makes it past just PC, If anything else it would for sure be multiplat
christian hour  +   338d ago
Considering that ps3 had some form of steam interaction in regards to portal 2, and buying portal 2 on ps3 gave you a copy on steam as well, we are long past the days when valve weren't very sony friendly, I reckon l4d3 will be on both the xbone and ps4, to think otherwise is just major denial.
TwistedMetal  +   337d ago
pc and ps4 release with cross online play. no xbox one version. remember portal 2 with ps3 and pc? expect that with left 4 dead and don't let anyone else lie to you like some post already are. valve hats Microsoft.
HugoDrax  +   337d ago
Seriously? they hate Microsoft? Funny being that being that Mike Harrington and Gabe Newell both worked at Microsoft for over a decade prior to starting Valve.
christian hour  +   337d ago
@auricGoldfinger so you love every company you've ever worked for? I've yet to work in a single place I've been happy with, but that's life for ya, put up and shut up if you want to pay the bills and feed people.

Though TwistedMetal it is a bit silly to say they "hate" microsoft, they don't agree with a lot of their policies and restrictions sure, but if they ever changed those I'm sure valve would have no problem being best buddies again. You have to remember they're both in the business of making money so they can continue to make quality products (or in MS's case, try to fuck everyone over), Valve weren't very big fans of Sony when the PS3 launched because of its difficulty to code for and what then was a very sub-par online service. Flash forward to today and Valve and Sony are super fun buddies, there's no animosity towards MS/Xbox360 or anything, they just aren't exclusive buddies anymore. YEAH BUDDY!

First, Valve says that their appearance at Gamescom this year will be "different". Next, a L4D3 countdown clock that counts down to Gamescom is discovered. Next, a photo of an internal change log at Valve confirms L4D3, and now, this. I think it's safe to say that Valve will announce L4D3 at Gamescom.
IanVanCheese  +   338d ago
What if Left 4 Dead 3 is the Valve codename for Half Life 3?

Gabe is a notorious troll after all.
christian hour  +   337d ago
I was actually thinking this last night, Valve have used Half Life 3 teasers hidden in screens and trailers to get us excited for an upcoming announcement that turns out to be something else (L4D2, Portal2) so what are the chances they're using l4d3 teasers to throw us off the scent for a HL3 announce? Wishful thinking I know, I really really want HL3 :P I wouldnt say no to a L4D on a new source engine either, but HL3 would make me so happy, and I've been saying for years that at this point if valve announce hl3 it will be when they announce a new source engine. So really, I just don't want to be wrong about that haha :P DAMN YOU EGO!
aliengmr  +   338d ago
Thought that countdown clock was a fake.

Its most likely L4D3 but I really wouldn't put it past Valve to troll. Few companies are able to create a "black hole" of information like Valve has on HL3.
TwistedMetal  +   337d ago
left 4 dead destrpys dead rising so if left 4 dead 3 is coming theres no reason to get dead rising at all. left 4 dead is the definitive zombie game no contest. dead rising looks like fisher price zombie game in comparison.
GusHasGas  +   337d ago
When did I mention Dead Rising...?
SIRHC13  +   338d ago
Game Informer cover is being revealed today. The stars are aligning, my friends. Valve is about to count to 3.

We wanted Valve. We wanted a 3.

We get DA3. From Bioware.

No, No. Dragon Age: Inquisition. EA took the three out. haha
Wizziokid  +   338d ago
First a tour of the office shows it and now it's been 'accidentally' put on steam?

Yup pretty much confirmed and I can't wait for it!
o-Sunny-o  +   338d ago
Omg please be on PS3 or PS4. I don't care just make it multiplatform. ^~^ My day got better with this news! My favorite game ever!
NarooN  +   337d ago
Well, Portal 2 released on PS3, and most recently PS3 also got Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. I think it's safe to say that with Gabe having changed his mind on hating on Sony, we'll see L4D3 on PS3 (and maybe PS4).
NYC_Gamer  +   338d ago
I hope this comes true for all the L4D fans..I'm just asking myself where's HL3?its been years and still not a bit of info on the project has leaked..Valve,should at least throw us some type of bone about HL3 development.

NarooN  +   337d ago
L4D3 will definitely contain some secret easter eggs or references to Half-Life 3. I think the reason HL3/Ep3 was delayed so long is because they wanted to save it for the Source 2 engine.

To be honest, I'm more interested in Source 2 than I am in Half-Life...
Mr_Pinky  +   338d ago
So the first game with 3 in the title and it;s not HL3....come on thats not fair. We've had 3 L4D games before the next Half Life.

If the old survivors return then I might give them a free pass on it. I would like to see either them continue where the comic left off where they get to Florida but realise it's a worse hell then were they left from or they continue from the first L4D and pretend the DLC where Bill gets killed off was just non cannon.

They better not continue with the L4D2 survivors, they were just plan awful.
Mr_Pinky  +   338d ago
Really disagrees, people don't want to see HL3 first.

Sketchy_Galore  +   338d ago
I wish I could say I wouldn't buy it because I'm too pissed off about Half-life 3 but who am I kidding? I'd buy it in a rotten heartbeat, just like I'd buy another Portal. I just hope it's next gen, surely it would have to be, right? They wouldn't release a strongly multiplayer focused game on a system that was about to become last gen's model.
CaptainCamper  +   338d ago
Photoshop. I think there's a L4D3 coming but I think Valve would be a little more creative with the title.
Kran  +   338d ago
Like they did with Left 4 Dead 2? Clearly :/
CaptainCamper  +   338d ago
Yes because no other franchise in history has changed from the numeric format after 2 titles...
Kran  +   338d ago
What Im saying is, you think Valve would be more creative with their titles... well... not really :/

Half Life 2
Half Life 2 Episode One
Half Life 2 Episode Two

Left 4 Dead 2


Portal 2

So far... not very creative :/

Counter Strike Source, Global Offensive are really the only exceptions.

NarooN  +   337d ago
Don't forget:

Half-Life: Blue Shift
Half-Life: Opposing Force
Half-Life: Decay

(Although these were all done by Gearbox instead of Valve...)

There was also Counter-Strike: Condition Zero.
PurpHerbison  +   338d ago
They have to do something really special for me to even care about L4D3.
TwistedMetal  +   337d ago
it will still be 100 times better then dead rising lol.
PurpHerbison  +   337d ago
I wouldn't doubt that. I've watched a friend play Dead Rising and it looked pretty damn boring.
LAWSON72  +   338d ago
Last time something appeared on the search list it came out almost a day later, referring to FF7. I doubt l4d3 will be out tomorrow, but an announcement may come tomorrow along with a store page.
CrimsonStar  +   338d ago
Can't wait to play this on my X1.
TwistedMetal  +   337d ago
its not coming to the x1 loll keep dreaming. you guys can stick to playing that rip off wanabe zombie game dead rising the saints row of zombie games while I play left 4 dead 3 the gta 5 of zombie games.
CrimsonStar  +   336d ago
lol I cant tell if ur trolling , or retarded maybe both...
ApolloTheBoss  +   338d ago
So they're really gonna do it. They will utterly upset the natural order.

What if I told you that Left 4 Dead 3 is actually Half-Life 3 in disguise??
Deadpoolio  +   337d ago
I'd say your probably setting yourself up for heartbreak
DeadlyFire  +   337d ago
Its possible. Only thing I know is Source 2.0 is real. HL3 is Valve's prime game. They debuted Source 1.0 on HL2. Why not debut Source 2.0 on Half-Life 3. Teasing L4D 3 along side it. I expect some sort of Free to play ambition to one of those two games.

only on PS4 and STEAM
Davuskus  +   337d ago
It doesn't show up...
No_Limit  +   337d ago
MS seems to have the Zombie genre cornered. The State of Decay, Dead Rising 3, and most likely L4D3 being console exclusive to XB1, it is going to be a great time for XB1 owners.
DeadlyFire  +   337d ago
L4D3 will not exclusive. There is no reason for them to limit the game to the 1box platform. The hardware is identical to the PS4 with lesser power. Coding between PC, PS4, and 1box will be easier than ever.
stage88  +   337d ago
L4D3 won't be an xbone exclusive.

Gabe is fully on board with Sony eg. PS3's Portal 2 having steam/move support and an extra code for the game included. Also, remember Gabe coming out in stage at Sony's E3 presser. MS don't have a year's head start this gen as well.

It looks more like the PS4 version will be the superior version.
No_Limit  +   337d ago
Who knows, the first two games were exclusive to X360 so MS probably paid for it and will continue to pay for the third one. I said most likely because it was based on the first two games. It is a totally different scenario from other Valve franchises like portal and Orange Box.

Placement of the Left Analog stick, Rumble trigger, kinect integration, smartglass, and a fast dedicated server will make L4D3 the XB1 the preferred and best version IMO if it is multiplat.

giovonni  +   337d ago
I agree with L4D3 not being exclusive this time around, but lets not get ahead of ourselves and start thinking the PS4 is the superior version with no concrete evidence. I honestly think the superior game will be the system that adds a new experience to the game play not offered by anyone else. Things like smart glass, kinect, or move; If used correctly could distance itself. People keep sleeping on the XBOXONE but it shows the most promise to add these features, and could be the better version.
However, it's going to be up to the developer to take advantage of what's there, and also the gamer to not be bias.
ghostrider32  +   337d ago
So Valve finally learned how to count to three.
giovonni  +   337d ago
My thumbs will be very busy. I want to see the enemy A.I intelligence. I liked how the games difficulty adjusted to the skill level of the player/players and how the game would stack the cards against you at anytime. How will the game advance on new hardware? I'm also interested in seeing kinect, smart glass support and how the game will feel with the new xbox1 controller.
