Yes, we already knew
that there would be a demo for Valve's upcoming co-op zombie survival sim, Left 4 Dead
. Therefore, we're not terribly surprised by Gabe Newell's comment to Edge
that the demo (which will allow one to four survivors to play through an early part of the game's campaign) would be dropping in "early November" -- after all, the game is due out on PC and Xbox 360 on November 18, so a preview period of a couple weeks would have been a logical estimation.
Why, then, would we choose to post on this particular announcement? It's simple, really -- to keep the seemingly inevitable, real-life
Zombocalypse at the forefront of your mind. Seriously, it's coming, people. Make your arrangements
