Left 4 Dead 2 to reach Macs on Tuesday

updated 11:30 am EDT, Mon October 4, 2010

Original Mac game due by Halloween

The Mac port of Left 4 Dead 2 is set to launch on Tuesday, Valve has announced. Players assume the role of one of four armed survivors, trapped in the middle of a zombie apocalypse ravaging the American south; five primary campaigns chronicle the group's escape. While playable with AI teammates, the game is meant to be experienced online, where modes such as Versus and Survivor allow a second four-player team to control the zombies.

Once the port is available through Steam, Mac owners will also be able to download the three official add-on campaigns, including No Mercy, The Passing and The Sacrifice. Existing user-created campaigns will likewise be compatible. Pricing should match the Windows edition, which costs $20; if a person already has the Windows software, though, the Mac download is free.

Valve meanwhile notes that the Mac conversion of Left 4 Dead 1 has been delayed. The game is promised before Halloween however, and like L4D2 it will support current add-ons. More news on the release date is promised later this month.
