Looking at IGN's livestream of the alpha it really looks like L4D. They should skip 1 and 2 and call it Back 4 Blood 3.

A sequel in all but name, the co-op zombie FPS is back.

Looks pretty disappointing from what I've seen, but I'll hold off judgement until I can play it.  The UI sucks, the pacing of the hordes and special infected seems way off, and the stats/items/cards seems needlessly complex and only included to ensure that they can monetize the game into the future.

 

I hope for Turtle Rock's sake that it's not a total disaster because after what happened with "Evolve" that would probably be the end of them.

Evolve was fucking incredible. It remains one of the only multiplayer games to ever give me what I'd describe as actual white knuckle matches. Still a damn shame that it was tutorialized terribly to the point where it basically taught you nothing and then was immediately bombarded from orbit with a thousand different expensive DLCs and multiple season passes. These days that kind of shit wouldn't even have people blink an eye because we live in a hellscape dystopia, but back then it was a death sentence.

 

In terms of actual gameplay, there was no mess about it. It was absolutely rock solid and played excellently. Especially as a monster. Of course, since the game did a poor job teaching you how to play well, the monsters all sucked ass and thought the Hunters were OP while the Hunters all sucked ass and thought the monsters were OP. I'd say the clusterfuck wrought in that game was much more due to presentation than any actual issue with the game itself.

Can someone on PC please play the alpha and report back?  I'm desperate for a Left 4 Dead 3, but these videos don't look so hot to me.

It's very good so far. LfD2, except better. The deck system is cool too.
