Microsoft may have made achievement points mandatory for all Xbox 360 games, but such a stringent rule has yet to be applied to Avatar awards. Introduced with the Avatar Marketplace in August, the reward program sees gamers gaining items for their Xbox Live personas by accomplishing certain tasks within a game. However, as the program remains optional, few developers have made use of reward system.
Today, though, Valve confirmed that Left 4 Dead 2 will be among that diminutive list of Avatar award-compatible games. By completing specific in-game tasks, Xbox 360 gamers will be able to acquire items, such as med kits and garden gnomes, as well as zombie and Depeche Mode T-shirts. A comprehensive list of awards with their requirements can be found below.
A sequel to last year's well-received survival horror first-person shooter, Left 4 Dead 2 will be available for the Xbox 360 and PC on November 17. A demo is now available to those who preorder the Xbox 360 or PC editions of the game.
