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.
