Set in the zombie apocalypse, Left 4 Dead 2 (L4D2) is the highly anticipated sequel to the award-winning Left 4 Dead, the #1 co-op game of 2008.

This co-operative action horror FPS takes you and your friends through the cities, swamps and cemeteries of the Deep South, from Savannah to New Orleans across five expansive campaigns. You'll play as one of four new survivors armed with a wide and devastating array of classic and upgraded weapons. In addition to firearms, you'll also get a chance to take out some aggression on infected with a variety of carnage-creating melee weapons, from chainsaws to axes and even the deadly frying pan.

You'll be putting these weapons to the test against (or playing as in Versus) three horrific and formidable new Special Infected. You'll also encounter five new “uncommon” common infected, including the terrifying Mudmen.

Helping to take L4D's frantic, action-packed gameplay to the next level is AI Director 2.0. This improved Director has the ability to procedurally change the weather you'll fight through and the pathways you'll take, in addition to tailoring the enemy population, effects, and sounds to match your performance. L4D2 promises a satisfying and uniquely challenging experience every time the game is played, custom-fitted to your style of play.

Key Features:

  • Next generation co-op action gaming from the makers of Half-Life, Portal, Team Fortress and Counter-Strike.

  • Over 20 new weapons & items headlined by over 10 melee weapons – axe, chainsaw, frying pan, baseball bat – allow you to get up close with the zombies

  • New survivors. New Story. New dialogue.

  • Five expansive campaigns for co-operative, Versus and Survival game modes.

  • An all new multiplayer mode.

  • Uncommon common infected. Each of the five new campaigns contains at least one new “uncommon common” zombies which are exclusive to that campaign.

  • AI Director 2.0: Advanced technology dubbed “The AI Director” drove L4D's unique gameplay – customizing enemy population, effects, and music, based upon the players’ performance. L4D 2 features “The AI Director 2.0” which expands the Director’s ability to customize level layout, world objects, weather, and lighting to reflect different times of day.

Reviews for Left 4 Dead 2

Amazing game to play with friends, lots of different strategies to explore.

After looking through my most played games list I realised I owed it to the Left 4 Dead games to leave my positive review, even if it'll be lost in a sea of the other 150,000+ positive reviews. Left 4 Dead is built on a couple of basic but important principles: It's immediately playable even to new players, it's movie-esque and the sound, vision and events are important for suspense and tension during gameplay and it's absolutely hands-down a game that excels at cooperative dynamics and benefits from friendly banter. All these things combined mean that 8 years after release it's just as fun, and despite the fairly frustrating online playerbase and mindset, and some failings towards long-term play, it's still absolutely a game that you can dive right into at any time and have some good old fashioned fun.

I love it !

Left 4 Dead 2 is a very fun adventure game in which you team up with 3 others and kill countless zombies as you fight for your survival. It has many weapons such as assault rifles, pistols, axes and even chainsaws. It has a good storyline as well, making the characters who need to survive quite interesting as they have to interact with each other. While the zombie-killing is fun, after a while it will get repetitive and you'll run out of fun ways to kill zombies. Another downside is that you should really play it with others, as with bots it is really bad because they act like they have no brain. There are a good range of modes however, even the ones where you get to control zombies!

Best Coop-Zombie-Game!

Get 3 friends and go for it! L4D2 is a unique, fast paced first person shooter with loads of replayability. Even if you get bored of the official valve content there are tons of fun community maps to try out. Despite the zombie theme L4D2 is not really a horror game and the L4D2 campaign and characters in particular are pretty cartoonish compared to the darker design of the original Left 4 Dead. However, all of the L4D1 maps were ported over to L4D2 a long time ago now, so there isn't much need to buy the original. And yes, it's still alive. Is an "undead game" :D

One of the best coop games ever

It's just a lot of fun. Every mechanic is tight and well-constructed, the special zombies are all well thought out in how they affect the group dynamics, and all the gear is fun to use. Its wide range of redundant weapons slightly removes the original L4D's glorious simplicity, but this game is still the better purchase for the sheer amount of content - it even includes all the original L4D's maps, campaigns, and characters. Combine that with the extremely fun Versus gamemode and some really great Steam Workshop contributions and you have a game that you can easily sink hundreds of hours into if you have the friend group to support it.


One of the things i love the most in games and movies are zombies and its all thanks to this game. it because of Left 4 Dead 2 that i fell in love with zombies, this game is just one of the best games i have ever played and after 7 years from its release i am still going back to my zombie roots and play this game again. if i could i would have give it 200 out of 100
