The Future of Left 4 Dead and the Things We’d like to Experience in the Third Installment!

Left 4 Dead 2 was released long ago and fans have been waiting for a long time to witness the 3rd installment. In 2009, the co-operative first person shooter was launched and achieved commercial acclaim with positive reviews. Thankfully, Left 4 Dead 2 was released only a year after the first launch of the first installment for PCs and gaming consoles.

A few days ago people expected to see Left 4 Dead 3 in this year Electronic Entertainment Expo but things didn’t really work out that way. Earlier, Master Herald reported that the game development company will most likely release an update on the still unconfirmed third installment in the Left 4 Dead franchise.

The franchise was developed in co-operation with Turtle Rock studios but now Valve is the only owner. It’s been six years since the last Left 4 Dead game and crazy FPS fans, not unlike me, are literally pining to witness Left 4 Dead 3. However, there are people who haven’t experienced this series yet.

The setting begins with the player and three allies caught up in a zombie apocalypse and you need to fight your way through hordes of zombies, trying to reach the end of 30-40 minute duration level. There are also special zombie categories that can immobilize and trap players, hence a strategic teamwork I vital for survival.

If a player is incapacitated, going through the remaining of the zombie hordes becomes a really painful task. Every level is surprise with the random spawns of items, weapons and the beastly undead.

As a result, the levels stay fresh and surprising no matter how many times you’ve gone through them. The game is awesome and highly entertaining and the writing further contributes to the hilarity. The lovable characters keep throwing out quips that you’ve never heard before.

Meanwhile, besides Master Herald, there were also reports from Yibada suggesting that Left 4 Dead 3 and the almost-mythical Half Life 3 are being developed on Valve’s Source Engine 2.Source Engine 2 was utilized in previous Valve titles like Counter Strike and games in the Left 4 Dead franchise.

Yibada further noted that Left 4 Dead 3 would be faster than its previous installments and thanks to Vulcan Graphics AP; it will incorporate more detailed and carefully-outlined visuals.

After the departure of Turtle Rock Studios from this project in February, there were many speculations suggesting that the game has been totally discarded by Valve. However, till now, Valve hasn’t revealed any official information regarding the status of Left 4 Dead 3.
