We apologize for the headline. (Sort of.)

Yesterday, EA and Valve announced they would be releasing a sequel to 2008’s awarding-winning zombie co-op shooter.

With the second wave of the infection set to drop on November 17th, Left 4 Dead 2 will take gamers on the misadventures of an all new group of four survivors through the American South.

Two of the new survivors will be featured on the August issue of PC Gamer. Rochelle (left) is an aspiring news anchor, while Coach (right) is a heavy set P.E. instructor.

Beside added environmental effects, a major addition to gameplay will be the addition of melee weapons. Hinted towards in the trailer are a chainsaw, fire axe, and frying pan.

A new type of special infected will be included as well; known as “The Charger.”

IGN reports that all campaigns will take place during the daytime. They will also have  much stronger narrative connections than the last game, including one that may take place in an area that has yet to be hit by the infection.

What do you guys think? Are you hungry for another zombie apocalypse?
