    Post everything on the L4D sequel here!


    [​IMG]

    All Valve games have been fantastic :rockout: so I've pre-ordered the retail version from Amazon, because I'll get something tangible to go with it - the box taking pride of place with the rest of my Valve retail collection on my shelf - at the same £26.99 pre-order price as on Steam.

    Release date November 18th.

    Have you pre-ordered it yet? Did you get the 4 pack?

    Does that literally mean that I won't get it with my retail pre-order? Doesn't seem likely somehow.

    You need some kind of code to put in to steam to get access to the demo and the bat, if you haven't, or don't get it, then you won't have access.

    Hence why I pre-ordered via Steam.

    Ordered the other day. Are we keeeping a list of members in the OP here too?

    Getting together to buy the 4 pack is very smart if you all can get together and organize it....goes from $44.99 to buy one to $33.75 per copy in the 4 packs.

    Yeah you don't say. Then why did you go out and buy it already. If you had joined me we would have only needed two more people.

    I got my copy pre-ordered. My Steam name is erocker. http://steamcommunity.com/id/erocker

    He got the four pack with me and a couple others. This would be a great place for some of you who haven't gotten it yet to team up and buy the four pack together. :)

    what the point of getting preoder,so u can play demo.Do they actually think that player will play demo,and if they dont like it so they just will cancel preoder.So why just release demo for all.Because theres no difference if u still can cancel preoder.

    if you wait till release the price jumps to $50. if you get 3 others now you can save over $15 a copy. Demo aside, Im all about saving loot on video games.:D

    Also iirc the demo is available to the public a week after the pre-order guys see it.

    Well I preordered L4D 1 and got to play the Demo early and loved it and could not stop playubg the same two maps over and over again. Its a little prize you get for getting the game early and if you don't you just have to wait a lil longer to start playing it (Cause they area releasing a public demo Nov 10). I don't think you can cancel Preorders on steam so when you buy it you better know what you are buying, cause once you get it their are no refunds. I'm 100% sure the game will be fun. If the first one was and this one has a whole bunch more goodies to it, it'll be platinum.

    The whole thing behind this demo, like most, is to ether:

    see if you like the game

    or

    Get a handle on the game if you want to get it.


    Now, with this whole thing on L4d2 it's a completely different thing... You preorder the game now, you get a "preorder" item that is in game, and the ability to play the demo a week before anyone else..

    Look at Aion.. You preordered the game for what? Being able to get into the "beta testing" of the game, plus the free "in game items"? It's the same thing... iirc, you even signed up and talked heavy on the game before it came out due to yourself getting the game...

    I make preoders for cheaper prices not for public betas or ingame items.I dont care about bonuses,I just care about price.

    Got my copy pre-ordered. Getting mine from game as i enjoy a physical copy of what i buy plus i don't have 4 months over which to download the whole game on steam. I still get the baseball bat and early "beta" access though so's all good.

    The pre-order peeps get to play from october 27th - i don't see it as a beta but more of a preview to be able to mess around and see what new weapons are best and the different routes through the maps etc.
