A Valve representative has confirmed the veracity of the two posters as official, saying simply, "They're legit."Original:
It is with much necessary reservation that we bring you the two purported Left 4 Dead 2
campaign posters for "Dead Center" and "Hard Rain" that you see above, completing the set of five campaign missions. Found over on Taiwanese website GNN
, we're highly skeptical of their veracity for the time being, but felt their quality at least bared mention -- if this isn't real thing, it's damn impressive
. Being Danny Doubters though, we're still a bit thrown by consistency differences when compared to the game's other three posters
. We've sent a note to Valve for comment, so until we hear back, the images will remain strictly in our "unconfirmed" pile.
In the meantime, ponder this: "Dead Center" translated by Google from Mandarin Chinese is "Death Marketplace." Fact!
