New Orleans is famous for its motto "Laissez les bon temps roulez," or "Let the good times roll." However, starting today, it will be zombie heads rolling in a virtual Cajun wasteland, because the demo for the New Orleans-set Left 4 Dead 2 becomes widely available today. Available to preorderers since last Wednesday, the 2GB demo is now open to all Xbox Live Gold subscribers via Xbox Live and PC owners via Valve Software's Steam service.
The demo comes exactly two weeks ahead of Left 4 Dead 2's launch on the 360 and PC. Published by Electronic Arts and developed by Valve Software, the game follows up on last year's popular first-person action game, which puts a special emphasis on online cooperative multiplayer. Valve has also confirmed that it will be one of the first games to offer Avatar rewards in the form of clothes and accessories awarded for in-game feats.
