L4D Beta
I have always wondered since l4d changed so much during the beta and so many people are wanting the game go back to the original beta form instead of the form we have nowerdays will valve ever remake the beta for us?

Splinks managed to find the l4d beta moddels hidden in the files so that means there must be the rest of the game still there because most of the changes were done about 3 months from release so i doubt they would ever just delete it like that or not mike a backup of it.

Hahaha, yeah, sure. The only thing Valve could make now with L4D is delete if from Steam. At least this is what would not surprise me.

SHHH ONLY GUCCI SURVIVORS NOW, LET THE BLUE FOG BE WITH YOU

Responding to OP, yes a lot of files still there but the game as playable version no. We could perhaps recover the special infected textures and common, sounds of weapons, music or other stuff. Valve won't make again l4d beta (no logic), only the community will do it (and it is already working on it)

Also people should understand that it wasn't "beta" content at all (survivors are considered Original Survivors by VALVe, nobody calls them beta), it was content from Turtle Rock Studios that developed the game for 3 years, and in the last year valve took control of development and changed the art style completely also removing a lot of features.


ps: just wait for l4d3 being more childish and comedic with tf2 art style.

Because comical infected, comical survivors, with freshly shaved facial hair and clean gucci outfits is much better than survival horror.

Right ?! all they manage to do is throw ♥♥♥♥ty seqels at us again. Old and new bugs ,even more stupid bots, overpowered special infected, etc. Personally i would like to see bug fixes for second, cards and maybe more campaigns for first. Option in settings to change textures and sounds to "beta" would be cool. Childish, TF 2 art style ? I would add left 4 hats and screwed up campaigns from both previous games.

Valve won't ever release the beta because they thought it wasn't good enough. Thats' why they changed the game. The only way you'll get to pplay it is to either work at valve or have some super hokk ups within valve. Or if there are any private game beta collectors that have a copy and are willing to sell it (not easy to find such people but I know a few). Otherwise it's probably not happening.
