Left 4 Dead' Survival Mode/DLC Preview (Video)

Survival mode takes all of the areas, 15 in all, from the original Left 4 Dead maps where you call the horde, like at the elevator in No Mercy and at the crane in Dead Air. There's also the brand new lighthouse themed, "The Last Stand" with the apt tagline "it doesn't end well", because, despite being the level loaded with pills, explosives, ammo and health…well, good luck lasting long enough to use any of them. There's no rescue in sight for Survival mode, just a never-ending flow of zombies and the crushing feeling of impending doom (or a tank beating you into the pavement).

zombies coming from every direction, looks like some frantic fun and its FREE! Thats good for a game that seems to keep getting more popular.

it has always used dedicated servers. Once you get a group together in the lobby it then says on top of the screen looking for a dedicated server before starting.

Do you vs AI zombies?
Or.. Are there actual humans playing as hunter, smoker, tank etc?

When you play online co-op story missions you face AI zombies, hunters, boomers etc.

When you play Vs, one team are the survivors and the other are the special zombies. 4 to each team.

Survival, I'm guessing you face AI zombies until you all die. At least, that's what it looked like in the video. Although, surviving against four other zombie players sounds fun. I wouldn't mind if they included that :D

You're playing it WRONG.


I was dissapointed by the demo, but i still picked it up. I liked the game but it thought it was just OK. Nothing special. But once you find what makes this game tic.... WOWOWOW, its friggin incredible.

Playing on expert with 3 other people with mics and playing versus with guys with mics, is some of the best fun ive had this gen. No other game pushes you too work as a team as much as this one.

I want this so badly. It's my favorite game and I'm drooling for this DLC.

micro_invader5155d ago

Looks awesome. Been waiting for this.

For some reason though, I can't recognise which map that is, it's not a new one is it?

Edit: Oh, I see. It's a new light house.
