It has been nearly 11 years since Valve released Left 4 Dead 2 and ramped up the terror of the zombie survival shooter series. Since its release people have been wondering whether there will be a third instalment in the series. Well, that is to be confirmed as coming but there is some new content in the works. Left 4 Dead 2 is getting a new update called The Last Stand. This update has not been worked on by Valve directly but instead by members of the Left 4 Dead community. However, Valve has given the update its blessing and will be officially publishing The Last Stand.
There are not too many details about Left 4 Dead 2 The Last Stand bar the teaser trailer, and a brief description:
It has been many years since the infection first hit. Radio silence, no sign of life, nothing but lingering hopes… CEDA is not going to save us. But there is hope! A few brave souls have continued the fight against all odds, and soon we can all benefit from their resilience.
Valve had been working on new Left 4 Dead titles prior to the release of Half Life: Alyx, but these were cancelled. Left 4 Dead 3 was briefly in development, as an open world game set in Morocco, but deemed unworkable because of Source 2’s slow development. Another Left 4 Dead project – codenamed Hot Dog – was also dropped. Whether Valve will revisit these in the future is unknown, but thanks to community and The Last Stand Left 4 Dead 2 has not quite been left for dead.
