Valve: 'Left for dead 3 will happen'

[url=http://www.oxm.co.uk/46230/valve-left-4-dead-3-will-happen-player-controlled-infected-director-would-be-cool/]Valve: Left 4 Dead 3 will happen, player-controlled Infected Director would be "cool" But "that's not a promise of when or where".[/url] [quote]You can probably expect a Left 4 Dead 3 at some point, Valve's Chet Faliszek has revealed, but don't go banging on about dates and times just yet. "A 3? You know, some time down the road," the long-standing Valve writer told Eurogamer over the weekend. "Like anything, I would say that to all of our games. So that's not a promise of when or where. "I really love working on that series," he added. "It's one of my favourite series. It's just so much fun with the characters and the world. I love zombies and I love horror. So, yeah." Prior Left 4 Deads have traded on a hyper-responsive, punishing AI system known as the "AI Director", which alters where and when zombies spawn in response to Survivor success or lack thereof. Intriguingly, Faliszek reckons there's something to the idea of a Left 4 Dead which puts a player in charge of all that. "That was the thing with that rumour that came out about The Cabin in the Woods," he said, referring to a cancelled Left 4 Dead 2 DLC pack which would have taken place in the same world as the cult MGM film. "That got no further than us discussing it, but we thought it would be cool idea if somebody could play as the dungeon master and put it out. But obviously there's a lot of work that needs to be done to do that. But it would be interesting. "You'd have to start testing it," Faliszek elaborated. "You'd need an economy of points that the dungeon master was spending. There's a 10 vs. 10 mod for Left 4 Dead, and one day me and Matt Scott, the animator, were playing it. "For a really long stretch of time we just kept saving up all the points, and at one point we just started spawning witches everywhere, just non-stop. It made us laugh. Stuff like that you have to figure out."[/quote] While I have never played the Left for Dead games (and I don't plan to) I guess it's good news to know Valve are going to start counting to three. I guess that means Half Life 2 Episode 3 (or Half Life 3) could be coming sooner than we thought. What are your views Flood?

Pardon me...damnnit...I CANT HOLD IN MY LAUGHTER... hahah ah aHAHAHA HAHAHA H AHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAWHAHAHAHAH -falls off a chair laughing- OMFG....[/quote] Fail. L4D is probably one of the scariest games around. Last man standing, 1 health left, expert difficulty, a few meters away from the safe house and a hunter chasing you. Terrifying. [/quote] You sir need to play some scary games if you honestly think left 4 dead is a scary game. Truly scary games have become a niche genre these days. Is L4D niche? No? didn't think so.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] BerzerkCommando [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Comrade Napoleon How their third game will be announced. *E3 stage silent, dark* *light cast on Gaben, who is held up above the stage by a crane, lowered slowly onto the stage platform* *Stage crew hooks Gaben's wrists onto pullys, stretch his arms out in a motion meant to present something* Gaben: IT HAS COME! *Number 3 appears on screen behind Gaben, slowly morphs into a decomposed hand with three fingers* *fireworks on stage* *crowd quietly gets up and leaves* OT: I don't think there needs to be a third L4D game, but knowing Valve I'll still find it fun and still buy it[/quote] Hold on a second. Are you implying that people will be able to see this screen if Gabe is in front of it? [/quote] Lol

It was still enjoyable, so I don't see how it would put people off the franchise.[/quote] I'm with you - I sank hundreds of hours into L4D2 and usually had a really good time - but it was still a bad move releasing the game so quickly after the first. Think of it this way - I remember seeing L4D's playercount on PC reach 50,000 several nights a week. L4D2, I never saw it go over 30,000, and that was once...after that, it was always between 10,000 and 20,000, which dropped steadily. Now it's extremely rare to peak over 10,000.
