0

Today, Valve has announced the acquisition of Turtle Rock Studios, the Orange County-based development house behind the upcoming zombie-slaughtering cooperative first-person shooter, Left 4 Dead.

The formerly independent studio has had a long relationship with Valve, having developed the Xbox port of Counter-Strike, as well as a number maps for Counter-Strike: Source. Turtle Rock were also responsible for the the AI of the highly-intelligent Counter-Strike bots, experience which will hopefully translate into an army of frighteningly cognizant undead foes and allies.

"Left 4 Dead fills a long-standing demand gamers have had for a co-op first-person action experience," says Valve's Doug Lombardi of the upcoming Xbox 360 and PC game.

Doug, please allow me to correct you, ever so slightly: Left 4 Dead fills a long-standing demand gamers have had for a co-op first-person zombie experience. Thank you very much.
