Left 4 Dead 3 and Future Comics.
Just wondering what peoples thoughts are on the rumoured Left 4 Dead 3. Personally I can't wait to hear more information.

I love Left 4 Dead and I'm hoping they expand the world more, showing the spread of the Virus through the world answering questions like is it only happening in america, is it worldwide, when did it spread over seas, are there any countries or places infection free.

I'm imagining a The War Z type bigger picture here. It would be so great to have bigger maps with maybe some safe zones that arn't over run yet where you can sit a while and get little easter eggs like radio messages you can ehar giving more of the subtle hints we all love about the way Left 4 Dead tells its story.

I'd also love to see some Zoe and and Ellis stuff, its seriously everywhere I look on the internet and I really like the idea. Could we have the survivors meeting again? I dunno after the comics. Maybe some more comics could help bridge the gap between l4d 2 and 3? Help us get the idea of the setting.

It works best with 4 survivors and everything including the name is build around that I know but man I just want to see the 2 groups together with a few other new characters to spice it up. It would be a great dynamic. Maybe for game purpouses you jsut "choose the 4" your going to play with.

I dunno but theres my thoughts, what are yours?

The Ellis and Zoey relationship is highly likely to work,new characters will make it interesting...
...The key question is, how do you make "The Sacrifice" non-canon? In other words, how do you bring Bill back into the action?

Oh look, another L4D3 thread. As if we needed more of those.
The Honey Badger Feb 3 @ 12:37am 
Well I suppose I asked for your thoughts. Given the new rumours for a 3rd installment I thought I'd share mine. Seems that offends you. Makes me think your offended easily. To the point you felt compelled to reply.. Must be hard being so easily agitated.

Haha funny, this seems to be a better l4d3 thread, not one that wants l4d franchise to change into cod.

Well, the idea of l4d would be hard to change. That is the idea of 4 survivors going through levels saying stuff and the story is quite simple. Change is as good as a holiday, though I'd like the campaign mode to stay mostly as it is, but with some improvement, because the saferoom doors is a routine. But it's better than having a cutscene, walking 3 meters, and have another cutsscene. Honestly, I want to wet my pants when I lose control to some stupid cinematic scene.

To make things interessting, I'd like to see a mode where you are part of an army squad that is well equiped and you have a mission to kill all the zombies in a place or to save a group of imunes.

[Rant]
Tired and easily agitated. There's a crap-ton of L4D3 topics in the archives, including a very prolific brainstorming thread. It's almost as tired as Half-Life 3, and in the end it's all the same discussion. People want things, people don't want those people to want those things, people want other things, people say they want the game and urge Valve to do something about it as if their pleas will cause some sort of action. People go off-topic and troll. It seems like every idea has been thrown off the wall ad infinitum, and Valve hasn't even confirmed that there will be an L4D3/L4D2 Ep.1 at any time in the near future.

All of the rumors are essentially baseless, the picture of the Valve computer hasn't been confirmed or denied and gives no indication of the actual working progress of the or any game. The leaked Source 2 mansion shot is only a render, likely just a demonstration. Nothing in that screenshot indicates that Left 4 Dead 2 or Left 4 Dead 3/2 Ep. 1 is in any stage of Source 2 construction. It's meant to be a pretty picture as engine demonstration, nothing more. There just isn't any proof that Left 4 Dead 3 is coming and you should hold your breath.

The more people talk about it, the more people will want/expect from the game. The way I'm hoping, everyone who expects something aside from more of the same will be disappointed. Or if Valve radically changes the formula to conform with whatever people are, everyone expecting more of the same is probably going to be disappointed and a large portion of the fan base will be alienated. The game cannot please everyone, and the more hype is built behind it, the more people set themselves up for disappointment. There has been more speculation as to what this game will be than most other games get post-announcement. Everyone's general ideas are out on the table already, and it's only going to be the same story if/when the game is announced. Why not save the speculation for when Valve says "We're making a sequel!"? It will be relevant then.

P.S. Let's please not ship the Ellis+Zoey thing, the first Survivors are either en route to/in the Keys, or (hopefully not) dead along the way. The second Survivors are somewhere that's probably not there, in military custody. Getting the current group of survivors to meet again seems incredibly contrived, and it means we'd have to deal with two sets of survivor campaign lines, if there are going to be (as there should) new survivors in new environments. It would add some confusion and complexity to a game that, at its core, has tried to remain as simple and straightforward as possible. It also seems like fanservice and kinda lazy to me.
[End Rant]

Now then. Have nice day!
The Honey Badger Feb 3 @ 3:21am 
You know what.. That was a damn good rant and I respect that. I actually apreciate your reply. I know its a long shot and would be ahrd to have the Zoe+Ellis thing going but that was the thing that had me making the original post in the first place. You see I was watching some Machinima on the subject and I just enjoyed it so damn much that I thought, and I quote my thought "OMFG I REALLY WANT THIS TO BE CANNON" I just love the Machinima surrounding that so much. I'm sure Left 4 Dead 3 will be more of the same. But can't blame a guy for wanting just a little more.

Atleast I'd like a comic to give us a conclusion to the L4D2 survivors story and a hint as to the setting of the 3rd installment. A 3rd installment that I'm foaming at the mouth for. Or not so much today but I'm quite impulsive and when I posted started this thread, fresh after a youtube session, I certainly was just in the mood for some L4D3 chat.

Well you made your point better now, instead of a sarcastic insult. I have to agree with you all the way. The Ellis Zoey thing makes me sick and I too hope there is nothing. And all the l4d3 things are rumors made by trolls.

Honestly I hope l4d3 doesn't came out very soon, l4d2 is still good as it is and valve put alot of trouble into keeping it that way.

I will have a nice day, thanks.
The Honey Badger Feb 3 @ 3:26am 
Before we all sign off and go have a ncie day (Which I wont I a busy day ahead) I just wanted to suggest one thing if nothing else. Just a thought I had reaing your last post Pieter. They could always put L4D1/2 content in L4D3 but all updated into Source 2. Since they have been giving those games away it wouldnt hurt? That way we keep all the stuff we have loved in a strong fresh player base. Just a thought.
(C|F) toddlir Feb 3 @ 3:34am 
There is nothing wrong with brainstorming, I like to discuss ideas, thats why I'm on th forum. Well they put l4d stuff into l4d2, there is no reason not to put l4d2 stuff into l4d3, should it come out. I understand that people learn to love the survivors. I am a fan of Nick myself, and not wanting to let go of them is normal. And the specials is well thought out and will be hard to replace, so it would be good to have them in the l4d franchise for a long time.
The Honey Badger Feb 3 @ 3:36am 
You've probably hit it on the head there. I don't want to elt them go! They can't jsut sail off into the sunset to some Island in Paridise and leave me! *Cries*
(C|F) toddlir Feb 3 @ 3:46am 
I hope they don't. As I see it, they will probably be part of the cleanup once they get saved, like you mentioned in worldwar z. They must serve a purpose, they can't just become fat on the boat. And since they were together through alot of blood and puke, they will be in the same squad when they clean up. That might be an idea for a way to be saved. Instead of the cliche but logical chopper, I can imagine you play the finale and when the time is up, there bust an apc with dramatic effects through a wall and out comes army people. They save you and shoot the crap out of the zombies. Then you notice it is Ellis and his friends coming to rescue you. Just another idea, not an expectation as blues say.
The Honey Badger Feb 3 @ 3:49am 
He is suffering the Blues though. I like this Idea. Immunes clean up army!
(C|F) toddlir Feb 3 @ 4:00am 
Haha maybe he does. He has a good point, but this thread is just for ideas to share to each other, not valve.

Ilike you 3rd paragraf idea. Some eastereggs would be nice and a little story telling that keeps you in control. Almost like Bioshock, where you can listen to the story or play the game as one big level. And as you said, bigger maps, and perhaps more choices of paths. A whole town you can walk in and kill stuff and scavenge.
Stalin☭ Feb 3 @ 4:04am 
THERE IS NO FUСKING FUTURE FOR THIS GAME>>>BECAUSE THEY KILLED BILL AND THEY FАGS. THEY CANT JUST DO L4d2 WITHOUT LAGS/BUGS/CHEATS....
FIX ALL BUGS IN L4D2 BEFORE>>AND VALVE DO ONLY HAT_GAMES WHICH DESTROY GAMEPLAY>>>SO I HOPE THERE WILL NO L4D3 ON FUTURE> IMAO
p.s. all nubs who reply this will be rаped by God
(C|F) toddlir Feb 3 @ 4:06am 
They killed Bill because they couldn'e find his voice actor as sources say. You have the right to you opinion but I like to disagree, Valve made mostly good games.
