Release Date: November 17, 2009
Left 4 Dead 2 will have a public demo up later in the week but for the fans that reserved their copy, one was released a week in advance. I captured some snippets of my playthrough trying to highlight the new features, enemies, and weaponry. I still did not capture a few things:
- Boomer Bile is now a weapon similar to the pipebomb. You toss is into a group or at a tank and all the horde aims for whatever it hits. A nice distraction piece.
- The magnum pistol is shown at the end but never used, this pistol holds 8 rounds and is extremely powerful but extremely slow.
- The adrenaline shot speeds you up, allowing you to move through hordes without being slowed down for a short time.
- The defibrillator subs in place of the medpac, allowing you to revive dead teammates. A very handy tool.
