Left 4 Dead 2 Lets You Play A Bit Of Zombie Cricket

The four new Survivors in Left 4 Dead 2 will be able to make use of melee weapons, including a chainsaw, fire ax and the crowd-pleasing frying pan. Valve's slow roll out of new info reveals on more hand-to-hand weapon.

Curiously, it's a cricket bat, according to IGN. That's Left 4 Dead noob Ellis there whacking the juices out of a Southern infected, apparently relieving him of his cricket headgear. Does that mean, like the hazmat suit-wearing infected already revealed, that zombies will be wearing helmets? And exactly how many cricket matches and frat houses will the new Survivors encounter en route from Savannah to New Orleans?


An interesting addition, one that may simply be striving to reference Shaun of the Dead's anti-zombie efforts to increased suspension of disbelief. Or, as resident cricket expert Luke Plunkett points out, probably a blatant attempt to capitalize on Australia versus England cricket FEVER.
