[Update: Turns out the L4D3 thing is in fact, Prototype 2.
That still leaves our other rumor, though.]
Episode Three to be announced at the Spike TV Video Game Awards on December 11th?
To many people’s surprise, the Spike VGA’s are much more than a shrine to mediocre shooters and Xbox 360 action games. They also happen to be the place where numerous games get announced out of the blue, a notable example being Medal of Honor.
Recently, a small teaser for a world premiere announcement to be shown at the VGA’s has been posted up on the internet.
It features a brief zoom-in from some sort of satellite, which then switches to a shot of some snowy CGI mountains, after which our perspective shifts entirely to what seems to be an arctic landscape, with a helicopter looking suspiciously like Episode Two’s Mil Mi-8 flying above.
Could it be Episode Three?
I personally am not counting on it, and in my opinion this is as silly as this. Don’t get hyped up over nothing.
Kotaku has nicknamed it “The Planet”.
There’s a pretty interesting discussion too, going on in the EP2 SPUF, in the Steamcast thread, spanning across approximately 12 pages.
As for the trailer, here it is:
New Left 4 Dead to be announced at VGA’s?
In this new trailer for the Spike VGA’s, at 0:20, right after “WORLD PREMIERES” appears on the screen, “LOOK CLOSER” flashes on the screen, followed by a QR code that leads to this link, which is followed by…:
Could it be Left 4 Dead 3? A PS3 port of the L4D games? Some other L4D-related game?
I personally doubt it, but hell, you guys deserve to know and stuff.
That’s all we have for now. Pinky also posted up a more urgent Rumors post of his own.
(That doesn’t look much like Valve’s style – Pinky).
Damn it, Pinky, get out of my head! This is starting to feel like that ending twist from Black Ops.
Thanks for reading, and see you next time!
