Left 4 Dead gets a release date: Zombie murder scheduled for November 4

Ladies and gentlemen, the long wait is nearly over. We finally have a release date for the eagerly anticipated co-op zombie shooter Left 4 Dead. The Turtle Rock Studios FPS has been driving gamers to breaking point with the excruciating wait, but we now know that Valve will be spilling the title like so many undead entrails on November 4.

Due for the PC and the Xbox 360, Left 4 Dead allows players to work together and fight against waves of “infected,” or take each other on as humans and zombies in a competitive environment. In short, it’s a zombie fan’s wet dream, and it can’t come quickly enough for many people.

Just a few more months, friends. Just a few more.
