Left 4 Dead is a series of first person shooter games with survival horror elements, the original was released in November 2008 with the sequel released in November 2009. Both games where developed by Turtle Rock Studios and Valve and created using the Source Engine. Both games are set after an apocalyptic pandemic following four protagonists as they battle through the infected to escape to a safe haven. There is a real emphasis on co-op play with the main appeal been able to play with three other survivors to get through the campaigns. All the campaigns contain chapters which end when all the players reach a safe house. I’ve mainly been looking at the games for the environments.
