Left 4 Dead 2 Free This Weekend
OK, correct me if I’m wrong, but is Left 4 Dead the kind of thing people subscribe to? I mean, I realize it has plenty of multiplayer maps, but it’s also a single player and co-op driven game. It’s not like it’s an MMO with frequently updated content, right? Or am I wrong about that? Anyway, Valve is having something called a Left 4 Dead 2 Free Weekend to celebrate Halloween. Here’s the official announcement:
To celebrate Halloween, we are unleashing L4D2 on the world. Starting this Thursday, the entire game will be free to play for the whole weekend. New players can begin pre-loading now. For long time players, it is time to welcome your new found friends and help them survive the zombie apocalypse.
For current players, we created a new achievement. Good Guy Nick – – “Plays games with free weekend players and helps them survive a campaign.” Who is a free weekend player? You’re going to have to talk to each other to find out or you could always let your friends know Left 4 Dead 2 is going to be free this weekend and have them join you. Spread the word! It’s the zombie apocalypse, bring friends.
I don’t know guys, this sounds like a way to make us all very comfortable with the idea of gaming as a service rather than a cool thing to enjoy over the weekend. But if that doesn’t bug you, then by all means, play a game you can probably buy for 20 bucks used for free this weekend.
