Valve's Doug Lombardi has indicated to IncGamers that the developer is "toying" with a fourth new boss monster for the zombie shooter sequel.
Well, that's the least we should expect :)
even with the new additions, i'll stick to the first game for the time being.
Still no reason to get number 2 yet...
Well, too bad, you're in the minority. Everyone I know on XBL has already pre-odered.
lol Im the minority too i guess
Read the IGN preview of L4D2: http://au.pc.ign.com/articl... Does Left 4 Dead 2 feel much different from its predecessor? Well, no. In fact, despite subtle tweaks here and there, it was very much business as usual during our recent extended hands-on with the game, buried somewhere in the depths of London Bridge.
Didn't enjoy the first one much, it needs a lot to convince me to get the second.
3-4 new bosses. Cross playing with 1st Mods from the 1st can be played on the ''2nd'' this just help to prove what I was saying yesterday. L4D2 is L4D1 with just more content that could be DLC . Atleast be honnest and make the game a DLC and stop clamming that its new from the ground and stuff.
Shouldn't that be what a sequel is? More content for you? Then let's just forget Modern Warfare 2 because it just adds more singleplayer and new guns. Stop complaining and be happy that you are even getting anything.
Because you have all played the game and know for a fact it can only be considered as DLC....... At least wait for the game to be released before you all start hating on it.
lol.. It`s far from dlc.
I'm the Last Guy on N4G that'd be ''hating'' on a Xbox360 game. What I'm saying is true , As much as I like the 1st game every single news that gets released about the 2nd points out to say This is the same game with more the addition of maps characters and guns and 3-4 bosses . I would have prefered them to Release the game as an Expansion Pack like Halo: ODST Instead of a So Called ''SEQUEL'' of the 1st game. Have you ever seen a Game get Cross-playing between the 1st game and the 2nd game?
I really don't care, I just want more Left 4 Dead. Nobody's forcing you to buy the game anyway...
I found the first one well worth the price of admission. So of course the second looks like a even better deal IMO. More this,more that.....
There's really no reason to complain most sequels don't offer much outside of some new weapons levels. I'll be buying this day one.
I usually don't play shooters, but Left 4 Dead got me hooked on the genre. So off course I'll be getting the sequel day 1.
... Me thinks so. I can't wait for some more L4D action - I still play the first one most days.
What are people's standards for a fecking sequel nowadays? It has a much bigger vareity of weapons. About 3-4 times the amount of weapons in the original. The enemy's variety is being doubled. Five brand new campaigns(that work in three modes) as well as at least one new mode. New characters, a complete new setting with a new plot. Advances to the AI director that probably can't just be patched in because the AI director now changes the actual layout of the areas. What else would it need to be justified as sequel?
valve isn't supposed to make sequels like this - that's the issue. half life 2 came out how many years after half life? not that 5+ years of development is ideal, but each game should have enormous amounts of staying power. i'm hoping that at least l4d2 will have some lasting value, if it must be a new game and not dlc...
Let me get this straight you are all jumping head over heals for what at best could be DLC or atleast some of it but you also want original games? Look if you want more deadspace or Mirrors Edge then you best stop buying sequels one year after the original came out which lacked in content. Buy this game and if it lacks in content don't complain because let's look at the fact of the matter what have they added New maps (like cod 4 map pack) New weapons (like the warhawk map pack) New enemies (like the fallout 3 DLC) Improved A.I director. So don't tell me this couldn't be DLC we all know it could be, and besides they only had a year to make a new game. I am not buying at launch, not for £40 or £30 because I paid £20 for L4D1 and still felt it lacked in quality even after they added the content that should have been in there on launch. If you keep supporting yearly sequels developer will keep making them. Soon you'll be playing COD 8 and think to yourself, this reminds me allot of COD 4 so why did I pay £35 for it?
lets think about this for a minute.... Valve improved the graphics,ai,new story. Valve added new weapons,new enemies,new bosses. Changed the setting of the whole story. has five new campaigns. How could this be dlc? Mind explaining?
Burnout Paradise added load Warhawk added 3 NEW map locations and ADDED tons of maps. New vehicles and weapons Fallout 3 added a whole new campaign with new perks, weapons, enmies, a whole new ending, new allied, whole new locations AND EVEN A WHOLE NEW TIME PERIOD. All of the above was DLC!
How many times has this DLC, L4D2 petition crap been debated on here? Seriously, if you don't like it, don't buy it, its that simple. You can keep playing your L4D1 for as long as you'd like.
Valve improved the graphics,ai,new story. ps2 graphic are still present in l4d 2... l4d2 still look like l4d1. this Next Gen not last gen.... what valve has done is take a model T ford car and added two new seats and added a viper engine into the model T ford. it might run faster but it still looks like a dated game... vale is still living off their past works not future works... they are becoming stale as a dev.... the need to show this gen how to make a next gen game look like/play like... my real problem with these next gen games is that over half are not next gen level... l4d is one of them...
