    The poster for it, by the way, includes the silhouettes of the three male survivors from L4D1-- no sign of Zoey. Perhaps she's the one who died?

    Though frankly I couldn't see her sacrificing herself for the other three...

    The survivors' silhouettes on the posters change all the time if I've understood it correctly, so clearly there isn't one specific survivor who died.

    Anyway, uh... This video. It's funny I guess. :p

    Yeah, there are four versions of the picture, each missing another survivor. Valve is kidding us again.

    This update could probably make me buy l4d2, depending what the price for the weekend deal will be (there will sure be one)

    Don't expect to play this before late in the evening. If you are in Europe, just wait until tomorrow

    As far as i'm aware you actually get to chose who dies. Unless that was yet another rumour surrounding the release of one of Valve's games.

    it will be somewhat like the soldier/demo thing.
    players will need to sacrifice one character when they play, the character to be chosen by players to die more, will be killed.

    It's nice that they are trying to make Rochelle a little more interesting

    It's a shame it has to be one of the L4D characters :( They're all so well rounded and likable.

    I have to disagree. All possibly scenarios are listed here with the poster that has been showing up on the blog.

    If anyone were to certainly kick the bucket, it have to be Francis. We might not know that until the comic, if that is even explained then.

    I bet no one dies... I mean has anything happened to the voice actors?
    I love the music though, and the fact that it's at night again.

    EDIT: not for those who hate spoilers...
    THINK ABOUT IT YOU'LL FEEL REALLY BAD AFTER RUINING IT FOR YOURSELF

    And like the soldier/demo thing, it will involve ridiculously large numbers of players commiting suicide repeatedly. That promo's awesome, but why is the animation on rochelle so choppy?

    It's set in stone (and it always was), that one character would die, not a random one. Good its my least favourite one :)

    I just played through the passing, and it's not quite as I expected. It's a good campaign, and lends itself to some good gameplay. The scavenge finale seemed to work better than dead centre, mainly because you actually had to go searching for the cans. The whole gimmick of the l4d1 suvivors helping out was kinda taken out, as it ended up being a few extra bullets coming from a balcony. I would have really liked having an extra 3 survivors on the ground helping us out, and valve said at one point that there would be a romance between 2 characters. The fallen survivor is nice, though he seems to have an absurd amount of health at times. One time in particular I was being healed by coach while one ran away after taking an entire spas-12 clip from 2-3 metres away. The crescendo in the wedding was confusing, but the M60 was fun. In my particular playthrough I found explosive ammo next to an M60. It seemed kinda cruel.

    You can throw pain pills to Louis at the part with the racecar, just a heads up.
