The awesome duo Adam Kovic and Bruce Greene, hosts for Machinima’s Inside Gaming Daily segment, has covered probably the biggest piece of news all year and I’m simply spreading the good news! This may be even bigger than the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One reveal combined! It is the unofficial (yet undeniable) reveal that Left4Dead 3 is, indeed, in development as we speak. Apparently a Dota 2 player only know as “ReaverXia” got to take a tour around Valve taking some pictures here and there until, WHAM!, he took a picture of a change log for the Source Engine 2 and Left4Dead 3.
“ReaverXia” is in pretty big trouble, because he posted this ULTRA-UNDISCLOSED information on Reddit, and it spread like a virus. But his sacrifice has brought us the cold hard evidence we needed to confirm this bit of exciting news! This is pretty big as it is then shown that next to the L4D3 change log is a little symbol for the Source Engine 2, which means that the new Left4Dead game will be running Valve’s new engine.
For those of you who don’t know, Gabe Newell is the renowned founder of Valve and genius that has brought us Half-Life, Steam, and those awesome Steam Summer Sales. Though he is loved for bringing us games that we just can’t get enough of, he is also a popular meme circling around the interwebs as someone who can’t count to three. Why three? Because Valve is notorious for never releasing a third part for any of their games and it has even caused a riot amongst Valve’s more rabid fans, picketing them and demanding a second sequel to their most popular franchise, Half-Life. But now that’s all in the past now, thanks to the leak of Left4Dead 3.
Also, you guys should check out the original coverage video by Inside Gaming Daily via this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9mkuWcedHY. They talk about exactly what I just told you, except funnier.
But with this new information, “a sliver of light, shining from up above, to give us the hope we need to restore our faith that the long awaited Half-Life 3 will rise up from the dead and bring the good word from our savior, Gabe Newell. His long-lost begotten son will answer the call of his children and heed the cries of the wary and lame. Half-Life 3 will end all cruelty in the world and bring about the new dawn of a more peaceful and perfect harmony in the world.”
That was the made-up passage from The Valve Bible, Newell λ:3, that I pulled straight from my bum…
Now that L4D3 has finally broken the curse of the 3 I have but one meme, created by yours truly, to share with all of you. This isn’t a meme to make fun of Mr. Newell, but a meme to celebrate this momentous day.
Left4Dead 3 will come out whenever Gabe Newell feels like releasing it and comes out on whatever platform Gabe Newell says it’ll come out for. But in all seriousness I will keep an eye out and update you guys when there has been an official release date for Left4Dead 3.
