Left 4 Dead released less than a year ago but still at the conference Microsoft announced its sequel is ready for launch in 2010. A group of Steam, Valve’s online service, but do not see this ad with too many good eyes are already 15,000 signatures denouncing the boycott and seek release saying that the time between the first and the second is too short and that this will affect the new downloadable content and that it had scheduled for the first. In short, they feel cheated by Valve.
Others show their disagreement and the erosion of confidence in a company that had gained respect in the pulse industry. Left 4 Dead 2 involves improvements and additional content that should have been released for the first, either in the disc or via download for Xbox Live or Steam. The arguments put forward this user group are:
- A great update for Left 4 Dead was promised and today has not yet occurred.
- Valve had to put very little faith in Left 4 Dead because it immediately to launch the first part started working on the second.
- Left 4 Dead 2 is almost identical to Left 4 Dead, 1 and it will split the community of users.
- The launch date is too early to have time to polish the content or make significant changes in the gameplay.
- The new design of the characters seems lacking charisma and, in fact, nobody likes.
- Left 4 Dead 2 is not too bright and marries the aesthetics of the original game (there are scenes of day, a first in the series).
- The sudden release of Left 4 Dead 2 impact on quality and a lower frequency in the updated content to the first game, even compared to today.
- The community has lost faith in Valve’s reputation in the treatment given to their games once they are in the market.
The question is: will these complaints Valve to continue offering exclusive content for its first impact on entega or improvements that are included in full in the second part? The response when 2 Left 4 Dead comes to light in 2010 for Xbox 360 and PC.
