The demo of Left 4 Dead 2 is already playable for pre-purchase customers. PC Games Hardware presents first hi-res screenshots from the zombie demo.
The demo of Left 4 Dead 2 offers online as well as offline gaming of the chapter "Waterfront” of the campaign "The Perish”. PC Games Hardware confronted the zombies with a 30 inch display and a Radeon HD 5870 - the results can be found in the form of scaled down screenshots below. All pictures were made in 2,560 x 1,600 with 4x Super Sampling AA. Nevertheless Left 4 Dead 2 is rather CPU intensive.
Besides new weapons like an auto-shotgun, a frying pan, chainsaw or a cutlass we also encountered the new special infected Charger, Jockey and Splitter.
The release for Left 4 Dead 2 is scheduled for November 17.
