Last month, we told you the Left 4 Dead 2 demo would come out on October 27 exclusively for folks who'd pre-ordered the game. But that's not the whole story. Shacknews now writes that the demo will become available to all PC users (regardless of pre-orders) on November 3.
Xbox 360 owners with Xbox Live Gold subscriptions will get access on the same day, while other 360 users will have to wait until November 10. That should give everyone time to sample the co-op zombie shooter before its November 17 cross-platform release.
Valve has shared a few details about the demo's contents, as well. Shacknews explains:
The demo itself packs a sample of the New Orleans-set "Parish" campaign, providing up to four online or LAN players with a glimpse of "all the new melee weapons" and "all the new boss infected zombies." The Xbox demo also sports two-player split-screen.
If you'd like to get first dibs on the demo, Valve is still taking pre-orders on Steam. Pre-ordering lets you grab the game for $44.99 instead of $49.99, and it gets you an extra melee weapon, the baseball bat.
