Left 4 Dead available for pre-order!

Postby Garrador on Thu Oct 16, 2008 3:43 am

What we've all been waiting for! L4D is out for pre-purchase!

Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Half-Life, Portal, Team Fortress and Counter-Strike) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced the PC version of its highly anticipated new survival co-op game, Left 4 Dead, is available for pre-purchase worldwide via Steam, a leading online platform for the distribution and management of PC games with over 15 million accounts worldwide.


Read more on the Steam site.
You click on Build or type
make (or some equivalent), and you are astonished, then mortified, as you realize that the whole world is being
recompiled and relinked!

I think I'll just get this retail as $67 for a downloaded game is a little pricey for me. Stupid fucking exchange rate. :evil:

Can't wait for the game though. :D

I'm slightly reluctant to pay $45 for this, when we got the entire Orange Box for the same price...

Yeah, looks like this will be the first Valve game i don't buy over Steam,
seeing as i can get it for about 10 - 20 euro cheaper on retail.

I'm both surprised and disappointed, i was expecting the 20$ price point.

My bad, didn't know....


Either way, it seems a little to steep of a price for me to handle at the moment. Maybe when I have a little surplus of cash I'll buy it. My problem is, in comparison to the Orange Box, this seems like a rip-off; though I'm sure its probably worth it in play-time and fun.
