Just to rub salt in the wounds of yesterday's unfortunate news that the Left 4 Dead 2 classification appeal has failed, the game's intro cinematic has found its way online.

Click here to watch the intro movie for the game that is too violent for our country's tender citizens to play in it's intended original form.. Thanks for saving us nanny Atkinson!

So will the intro video be censored I wonder? If it were in a movie it would only be MA15+ I reckon.

haha Tremble, I was wondering the same thing. I definitely saw decapitation, human like bodies and whatnot that has banned the game.

Maybe they'll have an Aussie only intro that will involve the survivors sitting down with the infected for a heated argument to work out their differences...

Noticed in that video at one point he has adrenaline and the opportunity to pick up a defribillator (dunno if thats how its spelt, but those shock paddle things you use to start peoples hearts). What do those items do?
Tremble
Posted 03:05pm 23/10/09
Defribulator (sp?) lets you revive a dead survivor, adrenaline gives you a temporary speed boost and makes you immune to the common infected mobbing/slowdown.

i have pre ordered the 4 pack looking forward to the early demo
Khel
Posted 03:08pm 23/10/09
So it lets you revive someone who's completely dead? Or is it a way to instantly get someone up who's been incapacitated?

Also, after seeing how awesome it looked in that video to be hacking away at zombies with axes and ninja swords and sending heads and limbs flying, I really don't want to play out sanitised version either :(

i know i hope there patch or something we can do to remove it

Pretty sure gabe has said that if the uncut version got RC'ed, they'd release a patch for the gimp version a day or 2 after release. Hope that wasn't just a rumor someone started. Anyway what is so bad about our version really? Sure it sucks we are getting an edited version but from memory L4D didn't have piles of bodies laying around and you couldn't really dismember people either cept for high powered weapons.

I'm pretty sure he said they would release a patch for the censored versions already printed if the appeal succeeded and the original game was classified

that chainsaw was insane. this is what was missing from the first - good old dirty melee.

When I chainsaw a f***en zombie c*** I want to see it bleed. Because if it bleeds... we can kill it.

Pretty sweet trailer. Reminded me of how awesome it was going through the campaigns on hard mode first time round. Before everyone worked out all the lame-ish ways to avoid getting killed. Great fun.

Probably end up buying the cdwow option if gabe doesn't confirm a patch. Someone from overseas be a sport and hook us all up.

heh i like how they reached the "L" floor in elevator and open the doors for more gruesome mayhem, ending with the Left4Dead title screen.

l4d intro was way better, more of a realistic feeling to it

look up the german's cut version of L4D.

It's not just 'reduced gore' as such or misisng dismemberment.
It's... zero blood, zombies disappear/fade out BEFORE they hit the ground, no animation of falling down, just fading out.

Its.... terrible. Thats what AU L4D2 will be :P

F*** I hope Valve says something about a patch on censored versions before the pre-order offer ends on Tuesday. Getting keen but will hold out until something is said.
