Fresh out of the Microsoft E3 press conference comes the news that last years best horror game is going to get a sequel THIS year. A short trailer shown revealed a New Orleans setting, and our new cast of survivors will be grabbing pots, pans, and yes, power tools, to help them in their escape from presumably the same zombie crisis we saw last year.
The game will, like the original, be heading to Xbox 360 and PC, and frankly, if it makes it’s 17th of November release date I will be highly surprised. Valve are bad enough at hitting release dates as it is, but given how long their games are normally in gestation for, I find it pretty hard to believe that they can get a sequel on shelves a year after the original.
But I am very very optimistic.
