Left 4 Dead 2 Announced, Scout from TF2 to feature

Valve just unveiled Left 4 Dead 2 at Microsoft’s E3 press conference. The game is coming out November 17th, and looks to feature melee weapons, new boss zombies, survivors, environments, and an upgrade to the AI Director.

I’ve just received word from a source close to the Valve team that they are looking to put the Scout from Team Fortress 2 as a hidden survivor in the game. The Scout will slot in seamlessly, with the following loadout:

Primary: Auto Shotgun
Secondary: Pistol
Melee: Baseball Bat

While this report has been unconfirmed for the moment, it does make perfect sense — with the addition of melee weapons (the Baseball Bat has already been confirmed), Left 4 Dead 2 is ready to accommodate this special guest.

It’s not known if Valve has any other plans at this time to include other hidden characters – perhaps Gordon Freeman from Half Life? Whatever happens, I can’t wait to see the Scout in action!

New Warhammer 40k Title Announced: Space Marine

Relic/THQ has just announced it is developing a console action RPG in the Warhammer 40k, to be released next year on PS3 and Xbox 360. The game looks to be in the same third-person over-the-shoulder style of God of War. Like Dawn of War 2, it’ll also feature quite a few RPG elements like upgradeable wargear, but the emphasis is definitely on the action.

Eurogamer has an article up, and you can watch the trailer on THQ’s website — looks real nice.
