It's not Valve's MO to announce a sequel to a game of theirs so quickly in the life cycle. Seeing Valve was situated in a meeting room, I made an appointment at the show to see the game. Coming away from the meeting, I was happy with what I saw and what I heard from Doug Lombardi.
First off, the game is set in New Orleans with a brand new cast of characters. You get to play as Ellis, Rochelle, Coach, or Nick. So what you've come to love in Left 4 Dead is in there. It's all about getting to the safe house and killing as many zombies on the way as possible. But there are some things that have changed with the sequel."
