Left for Dead 2 for Mac Coming Tuesday
Over the weekend, Valve announced the official launch date for Left 4 Dead 2 for Mac as well as acknowledgement of when the original in the series would be coming.
Left 4 Dead 2 will be released for the Mac on Tuesday, October 5th. Existing PC owners will be able to download it for free through Steam. The original Left 4 Dead port for Mac is still seeing some delays, but they hope for it to come by Halloween.
Sorry Left 4 Dead owners, the Mac version is coming but we are running a little late. We hope to have it out in time to celebrate Halloween on the Mac. When released, L4D1 Mac players will receive the same great treatment. All the previous released updates and DLC for free and the ability to play an extensive library of community content. More information on the release date as it nears.
The October 5th was previously teased when Valve announced that a downloadable add-on called The Sacrifice would be available for PC, XBox 360 and Mac on that date.
Left 4 Dead was a popular cooperative first person shooter that was originally released for Windows and Xbox 360.
Set during the aftermath of an apocalyptic pandemic, the game pits its four protagonists -- dubbed the "Survivors" -- against hordes of the infected. There are four game modes: a single-player mode in which allied characters are controlled by AI; a four-player, co-op campaign mode; an eight-player online versus mode; and a four-player survival mode. In all modes, an artificial intelligence (AI), dubbed the "Director", controls level pacing and item placements, in an attempt to create a dynamic experience and increase replay value.
