Rebellion and Valve are thrilled to reveal a mind-bending, time-shifting crossover between two beloved zombie-massacring series. Starting today, the survivors from Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2 are taking on the unholy hordes of 1945 as new playable characters in the PC edition of Zombie Army Trilogy as a free update for all players.
Owners of Zombie Army Trilogy PC can now choose from a titanic roster of 16 characters, including all 8 survivors from Left 4 Dead 1 & 2. Partner the Vietnam vet Bill Overbeck with grizzled Sniper Elite hero Karl Fairburne, or reunite the heroes of L4D1 for some spine-chilling co-op from a whole other time – whatever way you line up, you’ll need your wits about you to thwart the undead army of the Third Reich.
Wondering how the cast of Left 4 Dead 2 went from the present-day South to fighting Nazi undead hordes in 1945? Well, British comic book powerhouse 2000 AD has you covered with a free commemorative comic, and it’s also available to download now. Spoiler alert: Washed up U-boats and occult happenings abound!
Finally, to celebrate such a momentous day in zombie-slaying history, Steam is putting Zombie Army Trilogy on sale throughout the coming weekend, slashing the game’s price by a massive 66%. The sale starts today, August 20, at 1PM ET/6PM BST, and will run through until 1PM ET/6PM BST on Monday, August 24.
