SALE! Weekend Offer: Left 4 Dead 40% Off

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 25 comments

Yesterday Steam announced that it was offering gamers 24 hours of L4D for free, but what kind of service would Steam be if it got you hooked on a game and didn't offer you a means to feed your addiction?

In addition to the 24-hour free trial that started a little after 4 p.m. yesterday, Left 4 Dead is now on sale at 40 percent off until Monday, May 4th. Personally, we think they would have done well with just the free trial. A lot of people would have forked out full price after a full day of gaming but hey, who are we to judge?

Try as I might, I couldn't get my hands on a US screenshot so here's the deal in yoyos.Try as I might, I couldn't get my hands on a US screenshot so here's the deal in yoyos.


As with yesterday’s free trial, L4D includes the recently released Survival Pack DLC, which introduces a new multiplayer game mode and two additional Versus campaigns. There’s also still time for you guys to try out the game for free (there’s roughly 10 free hours left) so go nuts.

    Yup! It's a great game, and I'm a big TF2 player as well.

    newegg was best deal in town, but now it's 40% off $40 = $24. I picked it up from steam months ago when they had a 50% off $50 deal.

    yes, game is great, very addicting like tf2 and most valve games. the orange box $10 deal was better though. i am tempted to grab a second copy for my 2nd pc so when my cheap friends come over, we can coop.

    Yeah, but Steam lets you download direct to HD, so less waiting for 5 day shipping. If you want to save 2$ be my guest lol.

    This is a great opportunity for me to feed my addiction! I'm looking for a fix, now all we need is for episode 3 to come out.

    just got the orange box deal last weekend (even though I own hl2 and hl2 episode 1 and have finished episode 2 and portal on friends computer) and it was a way better deal than this...I played the demo for L4D and seemed really fun, but for now TF2 is going to be the center of my attention...

    I love the versus mode best. I really wish survival had achievments though

    I refuse to pay more than $10 for an expansion. I'm hoping they come out with an episode 3/L4D package deal for $19.99.

    Better yet. Why doesn't valve start making HL3!!!

    Yeah but then you own an actual hard copy. Always preferable when you reformat every once in a while. Keeps the HDD clean too.

    To each his own. Personally, i could wait 5 days no problem. Builds the anticipation :)

    There's nothing stopping you from backing up your downloaded copy either to another hard drive (or NAS like I do) or to one or more DVD's.

    Hey, we had to come up with something to replace quid once the Euro came in.

    why pass? $24 on steam is better than $27@amazon or $28@newegg.

    As with all PC games I prefer to avoid innumerable bugs, patches and associated hypertension. A six month wait and I can get it for a few quid on eBay or Amazon...what's your rush?...it's just a game. Plus the contemporaneous "must have" next gen graphics card will be half the price by then.

    I saw the Amazon price too. Plus isn't the DLC free? Which makes the upcoming GOTY edition seem pretty worthless especially since it's $10 more retail. I'm not impressed with this deal. The Orange Box deal was pretty sweet though. Too bad, I already owned it.

    I see :) 
    I was asking because that was the first time I'd seen the term. I'm neither American nor European, so I may be a little behind regarding currency slang ;)

    Oh no man, it's not slang. We use actual yoyos as currency. Those ones with the lights and shit? Those are like hundred dollar bills! :p
