As of midnight EST, the PC version of Left 4 Dead, Valve’s zombie thriller, is now available via Steam to gamers around the globe. The title will be available for the PC and Xbox 360 at retail stores on Tuesday, November 18 in North America, and worldwide on Friday, November 21.
Wilson[DJedi] pasted this link into IRC from Kotaku. You can now relive what it’s like playing on a public server in TF2, just mow down the zombies.
You can even download the hacked map and check it out for yourself.
Not much of a surprise this is a possibility, the two games do use the same game after all. But Left 4 Dead hasn’t even launched and someone’s already modding it (probably the demo, anyway.) Here’s nine minutes — reloading! — of Left 4 Dead gunplay on TF2’s Dustbowl map (slightly customized). Warning, the volume on this sucker is hecka loud for some reason, with tons of — reloading! — gunfire.
