Left 4 Dead 2 Cold Stream DLC Coming July 24
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 8 comments

Valve recently revealed that Cold Stream, a new DLC pack for the zombie filled Left 4 Dead 2, will be released on July 24. Among other things the pack includes new versions of the original Left 4 Dead's Death Toll, Dead Air, Blood Harvest, and Crash Course levels.

Set in the zombie apocalypse, Left 4 Dead 2 (L4D2) is the highly anticipated sequel to the award-winning Left 4 Dead, the #1 co-op game of 2008.

This co-operative action horror FPS takes you and your friends through the cities, swamps and cemeteries of the Deep South, from Savannah to New Orleans across five expansive campaigns.

You'll play as one of four new survivors armed with a wide and devastating array of classic and upgraded weapons. In addition to firearms, you'll also get a chance to take out some aggression on infected with a variety of carnage-creating melee weapons, from chainsaws to axes and even the deadly frying pan.

You'll be putting these weapons to the test against (or playing as in Versus) three horrific and formidable new Special Infected. You'll also encounter five new “uncommon” common infected, including the terrifying Mudmen.

Helping to take L4D's frantic, action-packed gameplay to the next level is AI Director 2.0. This improved Director has the ability to procedurally change the weather you'll fight through and the pathways you'll take, in addition to tailoring the enemy population, effects, and sounds to match your performance. L4D2 promises a satisfying and uniquely challenging experience every time the game is played, custom-fitted to your style of play.

Zombeer To Combine Zombie Shooting With Beer
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Moonbite has announced Zombeer, Zombies & Beers. Developed on a multiplatform engine in partnership with Padaone Games, Zombeer will be a "first-person-survival-horror-comedy-shooter" (FPSHCS). The company hopes to release the game for a variety of platforms, including Macs, by the end of the year.

“Thanks to our creative team and our background in animation, we’ve designed Zombeer as a horror comedy full of action and beer, which is perfectly true to our tastes.” declared Carlos Fernandez, CEO of Moonbite. “Our team is very passionate about pop culture so the game proudly features many references to movies, comic books and games that we like. We have said that if Zombeer had a fragrance, it would be a mix between Las Vegas and a Tijuana dive bar. We can’t wait to unveil it and feed our fans with more videos and images of crazy and naughty zombies until the game releases!”

In a dark and near future, a mysterious plague is once again turning the world’s population into zombies. The main character named “K” awakens alone in a Mexican bar, after a night of “overindulging”. All alone, dizzy and disoriented, he realizes that this hangover doesn’t quite feel like ones he is used to. Indeed, he has been bitten by one of those nasty monsters and the virus inside him is gaining power. “K” will unintentionally discover that drinking beer is the only way to prevent it from taking over! But drink in moderation or you’ll totally lose control and be in trouble!

Full of action, humor and zombiness, Zombeer® will rock the world of survival-horror (mature) enthusiasts at the end of the year on PC, Mac and HD consoles!
