Eurogamer expo line-up announced

The Eurogamer expo, mentioned in a previous post has announced some of the line-up of playable games available. Sony, Microsoft, Electronic Arts and Ubisoft will all have forthcoming games available for play at the expo’s, along with SEGA, Eidos, Capcom, Konami, 2K Games, Bethesda, Namco Bandai and Deep Silver. So expect a whole raft full of quality games testing at the events.

Some of the games included will be anticipated Christmas blockbusters Assassin’s Creed 2, Halo 3: ODST, Borderlands, Tekken 6 and Left 4 Dead 2, whilst games scheduled for 2010 will include the likes of Dante’s Inferno and Aliens vs. Predator, with many more still to be announced.

Tickets for both events are £6, and with a line-up like that, we expect it’ll sell out pretty sharpish (sales are apparently already up on last year). They’re available here;

Valve release FREE Left 4 Dead DLC

800px-left4dead_promo

Left 4 Dead creators, Valve, have released free downloadable content for our favourite game of last year. The DLC will include multiplayer versions of the two campaigns which were previously only playable solo. However, the inclusion of an entirely new mode of play, Survival mode, is the part of the DLC that has provided the most interest.

In Survival mode, you and up to 3 others will try and fend off a never ending horde of undead for as long as possible. We can only assume this has been made as a catch up to the Nazi Zombie mode in Call Of Duty: World At War and Survival mode in Resident Evi 5.

Having only had a brief couple of plays on the DLC, we can’t wait until we can fully immerse ourselves in the frantic zombie apocalypse simulator.

The free DLC is available for Xbox 360 & PC version of the game

Left 4 Dead was released to critical acclaim late last year. Gamers and critics alike instantly hailed the games heavy reliance on team work and co-operation to create one of the most fun and interesting multiplayer experiences we’ve seen in a long time.
