Valve just unveiled Left 4 Dead 2 at Microsoft’s E3 press conference. The game is coming out November 17th, and looks to feature melee weapons, new boss zombies, survivors, environments, and an upgrade to the AI Director.
I’ve just received word from a source close to the Valve team that they are looking to put the Scout from Team Fortress 2 as a hidden survivor in the game. The Scout will slot in seamlessly, with the following loadout:
Primary: Auto Shotgun
Melee: Baseball Bat
While this report has been unconfirmed for the moment, it does make perfect sense — with the addition of melee weapons (the Baseball Bat has already been confirmed), Left 4 Dead 2 is ready to accommodate this special guest.
It’s not known if Valve has any other plans at this time to include other hidden characters – perhaps Gordon Freeman from Half Life? Whatever happens, I can’t wait to see the Scout in action!
Edit: Additional info and another shoop of the L4D2 poster.
