Whaaat? I have to pre-order to try the demo? EFFFFF.

I was going to base on whether to pre-order it on the demo to see if;

a) my computer can handle it. (According to specs it can, but my computer is temper mental)

B) Its going to be everything I want it to be.



Is a pre-release demo likely to be revealed for non-pre-orderers or am I going to have to wait until its already out to try?

I guess I can wait that long. Not like I'd be able to buy it anyways, and I wanna try it before I decide whether or not to save up.

catch it now so you can like it before it went so mainstream

I really hope most of you will be getting this for the PC. The modding possibilities for a game like this are endless. I mean, think of all the zombie movies that's been made. I can't wait for a mall map.



I'll have to agree with the person who said this is the best game I've played this year, and this is just the demo. The AI Director helps everything feel fresh as well, which was something I was worried about.

For server browser: Enable the devolper console in the keyboard options, open it up, type "openserverbrowser" and go to the custom tab. Not all games support you joining via the server browser atm, I belive you can't join an empty server either.



As for the game its self, after getting a good few run throughs on PC with a mate, and 2 other bad team mates. It was pretty damn fun, we kinda stuck together and steam rolled through taking little or no damage and the other 2.. Well we saved them too many times >.>



Also, hunting rifle = BAD. Don't use it, seriously, you will help your team more using dual pistols. Auto shotgun is brutal, M16 I seem to prefer though, but the automatic guns (m16, uzi) seem to eat up ammo, never have to worry with the shotgun.



Can't wait till I can play Dead Air and Death Toll. Roll on the 18th :D

Yeah, the one and only beef people seem to have with the game is the horrendous matchmaking system. What some Valve guy had to say about it:



I'm saying that your case is one we're going to solve, but having a mixed setup is more difficult.



Part of getting this demo out ahead of time was to see what kinds of concerns server administrators had, and we hear what you are all saying.



We have our hands a bit full right now, but we're all talking about what we're going to do to make running a game server something that is worth it for you.




Now more people on my friend's list just need to pre-order it. :P

Pre-ordered this and played through the demo. It really is fun and fast-paced, not to mention scary. This is the first zombie game I've played that's actually made me feel like I'm in a zombie apocalypse.

For those wanting access to the demo now without having to pre-order:



Umm, I'm sure I'm not the first one to mention this, but I didn't see it in the OP. You can get the demo early without actually pre purchasing the game.



How to obtain a free Left 4 Dead early demo access invite code:



1. Visit GameStop’s early demo access page from this link.



2. Fill out the Platform, E-Mail Address, First Name and Last Name fields. Leave Transaction ID field empty. Make sure you enter a valid E-mail since your demo access code will be sent to this address.



3. Press submit. You will be greeted with the following message:



Thank You!

Early access to the demo will run from November 6th through November 11th.

Codes will begin being sent out on November 5th.



Congratulations! You just made it into Gamestop’s Left 4 Dead Early Demo Access. Apparently the transaction ID field is not validated by GameStop’s system so it does not matter if you pre-ordered the game or not Give some time for the code to arrive in your inbox; it will definitely come.

I'm guessing you haven't encountered the witch yet?



*hears a child weeping somewhere in the dark*

"Guys! WITCH!!"

"Turn off your flashlights!"

"TURN THEM OFF!!"

*the entire team hugs the wall, trying to sneak past without grabbing her attention*



Good times.

It isn't incredibly scarey. Though, playing it on Expert is where the real fun is at. Completed it 3-4 times now on Expert... God damn is it hard. Hoping, praying that there isn't a tank round the corner and you hear one and it's like "ah.. crap...". M16 = good for Expert, allows you to pick them off, but a auto shotty is good for when you get a horde.

Looks good, though I doubt I'll get it for a while. Might have a look at the demo though.



(I just hope source mods get upgraded to use the newer engine even if you haven't bought the game.)

I'm so happy this is finally coming out. When they first announced it some friends of mine and I formed a clan, meant for left 4 dead. It got delayed so much we thought we would never be able to actually use the clan.



Anyway, I was kind of hesitant about installing the demo, as it said it was 3GB (Which seemed awfully big for a demo). I only have 17 left, and I might as well just wait for the real game. I'm looking forward to playing as The Hunter the most, I'm hoping my skills from The Hidden: Source might transfer over a little.

Don't take my word for it, but I think some of the demo files you download will moved over to the L4D folder when you pre-load, or atleast they will be used by the full game. The 360 demo was 1.2gb and the PC was 3.2gb, I don't think they'd make the PC demo over twice as big and then make you download it all over again.

Yes, I suppose so. Anyway, I've just downloaded the demo. I started it up, joined an online game, and everything is rainbow coloured, and I only see black silhouettes for people and zombies.

I think it was, it's fixed now. The demo is pretty nice, but I doubt it's anywhere near as fun as being the zombies will be. That's what everyone wants to be.
