Valve Squashes E3 Half-Life 2 Ep.3 Rumor, Confirms Left 4 Dead

Rumors that Half-Life 2 Episode 3 will be feature at E3 2008 have proven to be just that. Valve’s marketing boss Doug Lombardi has officially announced that the next episode in the Half-Life 2 franchise will not be at E3 this year. He did promise fans a playable version of Left 4 Dead would be on display at a Valve hosted suite.

The zombie FPS Left 4 Dead has been generating quite a bit of hype of its own. Valve is confident the multiplayer co-op game will be groundbreaking.

Valve managing director Gabe Newell has said, “What Counter-Strike did for multiplayer action games, Left 4 Dead will do for co-op games.”

Left 4 Dead is currently under development by Turtle Rock. Gamers can expect Valve to publish the title this fall.

I’m really really looking forward to this game. It’s been a while since there was a widespread fun coop game, and this looks to be it.
