Earlier this week we blogged about the much anticipated Left 4 Dead 3 from Valve. A set release date hasn’t been released, but we some details have made their way to the public. Here’s what we can expect from Left 4 Dead 3:
Left 4 Dead 3 is being billed as a “sequel-prequel”, to take place one month before the start of the outbreak.
The four new survivors include:
- Irvin: a black gangster (editor’s note: why he gotta be a gangster?!)
- Katherine: 24 year old white woman
- Keenan: a comic book nerd
- Garret Jr: famous Kenpo fighter who appears as a celebrity in the L4D universe.
Six campaigns have been announced for the new Left 4 Dead 3: Crash-land, Impasse, Inquisitor Land, Early Destination, Cliff-Hanger and No Mercy.
The Left 4 Dead franchise is about to get a new entry. Known for it’s great co-op play, the First Person Shooter game series will welcome a third installment in Left 4 Dead 3. While Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2 both happen at approximately the same time, Left 4 Dead 3 will be a prequel that takes place immediately prior to the zombie outbreak. There has been no hard date, but rumor has it that the game will be slated for release in either 2016 or early 2017. Supposedly, six levels will be available, with (one can assume based on the other games), more levels released later as DLC.
In keeping with the setup of it’s predecessors, Left 4 Dead 3 will feature four playable characters: female survivor, Katherine, a24-year-old Caucasian; a gangster named Irvin; a comic book nerd named Keenan; and a famous Kenpo fighter in the “Left 4 Dead” franchise named Garrett Jr.
So, what new weapons and infected will the survivors encounter? That remains to be seen. Check back for more updates on Left 4 Dead 3.
