Valve's VP of Marketing, Doug Lombardi has revealed to TVG that the developer is looking at providing cross-game play between the original Left 4 Dead and its incoming sequel.
Such a feature, which would allow players of the original Left 4 Dead to play alongside other users running Left 4 Dead 2, is one of the demands made by the now 37,000 member strong Left 4 Dead 2 boycott group on Steam.
This is Cool but also weird at the same time.
If they do make Cross-Game available this would further prove the fact that L4D2 is Indeed just a New edition of L4D1 with more content (eg:Weapons,Maps,Characters)
does anyone think the same as me? if you dont and disagree please explain why. : )
Valve try and make out that L4D 1 and 2 seem different by saying they are trying to work out some cross game platform, when in-fact content wise neither game is a $60 games only together should they be due to the lack of content.
Easy solution: Make L4D2 an expansion pack. That way, anyone who has L4D2 must have all the L4D1 content. This is how PC games have worked for years and years and would quell the people complaining as well.
you would think a sequal would be so much different and better that it would be incapable of cross game play. but i guess when a sequal comes out less than a year after the first, i mean how much better can it be?
but u have to say it would be cool if all games could do this somehow. i think it's very cool if it works.
I say fcuk them (the 37000 sad gits who have nothing better to do than sign petitions)
If this is the case i want my fifa 08/09 to be cross playable as well as my Madden 08/09 and all of my need for speeds etc
