Left 4 Dead 2's demo will hit in early November, but people who pre-order the game will get it a week early, Valve announced today.


The Left 4 Dead 2 demo will include gameplay from The Parish campaign, set in the New Orleans' French Quarter. The demo will let one to four players game together online or locally on both the Xbox 360 and PC versions. The Xbox 360 version of the game will include split-screen mode. The demo will also feature all of the new boss infected zombies and melee weapons found in the full game.

The demo will be available to everyone on Nov. 10. PC gamers and Xbox Live Gold members get to check the demo out starting Nov. 3 and people who pre-oder the game will get access to the demo on Oct. 27.


Left 4 Dead 2 will be hitting the PC and Xbox 360 on Nov. 17.

I was able to get the PC demo to the original L4D during the week they had it. I remember how they released the demo on the 360, but waited the traditional week for Silver people to get it, which meant that because of the demo expiring after a week Silver people didn't get to try it at all.

Hopefully they learned a lesson and don't try that again (for the record, I have a Gold account, but will download it for the PC again). #left4dead2
