Left 4 Dead won’t be demoed before release


In an interview with OXM Valve’s Doug Lombardi has revealed there will not be a demo for Left 4 Dead before the game release.

We tend to focus on getting the game out and not pausing the release date of the full product so we can create a demo,” he commentedIt is something you have to schedule and it is another release, so you have to make the choice there between completing the game by a certain date and getting it out to folks who want the full game or trying to create more demand by doing a demo

In Left 4 Dead up to four players take control of the four main characters of the game as The Survivors who play through a range of levels – such as urban cities, small hamlets, wooded rural settings, shopping malls and other such locations – and fight of The Infected, which are humans who have been infected with a mutated form of rabies resulting in 28 Days Later style zombies.
