Halloween Countdown 2020: Left 4 Dead 2


Left 4 Dead 2

Chosen by Cory

Left 4 Dead 2 is a cooperative first-person shooter video game, the sequel to Valve Corporation’s Left 4 Dead. The Game builds upon cooperatively focused gameplay and Valve’s proprietary Source engine, the same game engine used in the original Left 4 Dead. Set during the aftermath of an apocalyptic pandemic, Left 4 Dead 2 focuses on four new Survivors, fighting against hordes of the Infected, who develop severe psychosis and exhibit zombie-like tendencies. The Survivors must fight their way through five campaigns, interspersed with safe houses that act as checkpoints, with the goal of escape at each campaign’s finale.

“I enjoy the cover of Left 4 Dead 2 because it gives the same feel of the iconic first entry and holds a lot of nostalgia. I can remember exactly what it felt like in those years, hanging out with my friends, and doing couch co-op. There’s also an alternate version of this cover because the US version is technically a cultural rude gesture that wouldn’t fly in the UK, and I always think alternate box/poster art on the basis of culture is interesting.”


Left 4 Dead 2 is available on Xbox 360, PC (Microsoft Windows), Mac and Linux.
There are also several DLC’s available for purchase:
The Sacrifice
Cold Stream
The Passing

Left 4 Dead 2 Characters:

Coach: Coach is a forty-four year-old Physical Education teacher at the local high school in the town of Savannah―his home town. A prospective professional defensive linesman, a career-ending knee injury suffered at college led Coach to take up teaching as an alternative pathway into a possible pro-coaching football career.

Ellis: Ellis is a twenty-three-year-old mechanic hailing from Savannah, similar to Coach. He wears a Bull-Shifter T-shirt, a white and blue cap, with a truck towing logo (that is also seen in the car alarm section in The Parish), half-removed coveralls with the sleeves tied around his waist, and black work boots.

Nick: He wears an expensive white suit with a blue button-down shirt, several gold rings, and brown leather shoes. Nick holds negative and pessimistic views towards both the situation he has fallen into and the three strangers he is forced to join up with. Over time, despite his hard-boiled attitude towards his fellow Survivors, he softens and mellows as he increasingly learns to trust them. In-game, Nick shows a preference for Submachine Gun and Assault Rifle variant weaponry.

Rochelle: Rochelle has the most realistic grasp of the situation and is very caring towards her fellow Survivors. Her and Francis show romantic interest in each other when they meet in the campaign The Passing. In-game, Rochelle has preferences similar to Nick; she prefers Submachine Gun and Assault Rifle variants.
