Left 4 Dead's first footage

Left 4 Dead, the deadite-blasting co-op shooter from Counter-Strike: Condition Zero developer Turtle Rock Studios, is potentially the answer to all our gaming dreams, mixing up-tempo zombie action with teamplay multiplayer. To give yourself an idea of the game's massively exciting oh-my-god-we're-all-doomed! atmosphere, hit the Movies tab, launch the Video Player and select "Left 4 Dead - trailer 01-10-07" toseethe first trailer.

We first broke news of this undead romplate last yearbut finally seeing Left 4 Dead in action has reawakened our burning desire to bust into Valve's headquarters and force them to let us lay our trembling hands on the game itself.

Fortunately, with the launch set for later this year - and the first footage already looking very good - we reckon Valve will save us the effort by offering an official gameplay session soon. And, the second we're done bisecting the undead horde with automatic rifle fire, we'll bring you our first impressions.
