Left 4 Dead pre-orders to grant early demo access


Though we'd normally exhibit moderate hesitation before hurling ourselves and our easily gnawed-off limbs into a zombie apocalypse, Valve's cooperative multiplayer shooter, Left 4 Dead, demands a more impetuous reaction. Those looking to mow down monsters and make the undead deader would do well to pre-order the game, either on Steam or at "participating retailers," and net themselves early access to a demo.

"Early access" translates to November 6th for both the Xbox 360 and PC demos, which feature single-player and co-op modes for one to four players. Skeptical folk will have to wait for a general release on the 11th, or the full game's North American debut on November 18th.
