Left 4 Dead 2 Preorder Lurches To Life

Valve cracks open the door to its zombie-proof fortress and tosses out preorder details for Left 4 Dead 2, with a 10% discount, early demo access, and an in-game bonus awaiting those who put their money down.

Answering one of the questions Luke raised when the Left 4 Dead 2 demo was first announced, customers who preorder the game from either Steam or participating retailers will receive early access to the demo, currently targeted for an October 27th release. Preorder customers will also enjoy 10% off the full purchase price, and an exclusive in-game American baseball bat, one of the new melee weapons that constitutes one of the core differences between this game and last year's original.

You can head over to Steam and preorder your copy right now, or you can be really nice and preorder a 4-pack to make sure you have friends when you take on the freshly-awakened zombie hordes.


    Unless your in australia...

    I'll report back with how to preorder, I'm thinking that getting someone to gift it to you or changing you steam profile country would owkr.

    Success, just a run a proxy and you should be able to buy the game. I don't know what the consequences of this are, you may lose your game once you turn the proxy off.

    I just checked on Steam, no button to buy it. (But it doesn't come up with a "sorry, this game is unavailable in your region" like some other titles...)

    Still no sign of it for Aus.

    Wait until we hear more about the appeal before you go of and proxy your way to left 4 dead 2 pre-ordering glory

      Yes! We have to be paitient and wait for anymore options before making any moves just yet. Hopefully Valve will give Aussies more pre-order time, if need be.

    I'm more interested in this "exclusive" baseball bat weapon. How does that work? You start off with a baseball bat in your hands when you start each map? Can you find one on the ground while your teammates can't see it?

      I'm not 100% sure but once you drop it, other survivors in the same game can pick it up and use it.

    Australia sucks =/
